Low Rider

NARS Low Rider Powermatte Lip Pigment ($26.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had excellent pigmentation that covered the lips with smooth, even coverage. The texture was lightweight, thin but fluid (not watery), and spread easily across my lips without streaking or pulling into my lip lines. It dried down a mostly transfer-resistant finish, but if I drank anything, I did get some transfer on my glass, though there was so much pigment that it still lasted for a good five hours on me and was non-drying.

The new formula is described as “liquefied pigments with infinite matte color saturation for lasting, weightless wear.” It’s supposed to have “full coverage in one swipe” that “dries down instantly” for “smudge-resistant, carefree wear.” The formula has a very fluid consistency that is thin, smooth, but not at all watery, and the majority of shades were nearly opaque or opaque in a single layer. The dry down started quickly but was forgiving as I maneuvered around the edges of the lips but remained a bit tacky when I pressed my lips together for over a half hour later, though as long as I did not press my lips together until five minutes post-application, the color did not lift. I have found the wear to be comfortable so far–non-drying–but not the longest-wearing nor the most budge-proof in liquid lipstick, as just sipping water, tea, or coffee caused color to transfer onto my cups. There was plenty of coverage, so it still lasted through drinking but did start to break down noticeably during a meal. Even just touching the color after a half hour of wearing it yielded color on my fingertips. The formula had a soft, vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

Get Up Stand Up

NARS Get Up Stand Up Powermatte Lip Pigment ($26.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a bold, bright, pinky-red with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich, opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly across the lips. The consistency was very fluid and felt like there was more product on the applicator than necessary to get full coverage, but it still dried down to a mostly transfer-proof finish quickly. I never felt like it fully set, and if I drank or ate, color came off noticeably, but it did feel more flexible on. The formula lasted for six hours well and was non-drying.

Light My Fire

NARS Light My Fire Powermatte Lip Pigment ($26.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a medium, orange-red with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied fairly evenly, but it did not seem to go on as smoothly as other shades and emphasized the texture of my lips somewhat. The color wore well for six hours and was non-drying.

It’s too bad Nars stopped being cruelty free. Yes, it is *just* in China. It’s up to each person to decide where their line is, however, it is a shame for the brand to give up ethics for money.
