NARSissist (2017)

NARS NARSissist Velvet Lip Glide Set ($45.00 for 0.72 oz.) includes six miniature-sized Velvet Lip Glides in new, limited edition shades. The set is exclusively available at Ulta. I think if you’re a fan of the formula, the set is worth checking out as it contains quite a bit of product ($93.60 worth of Velvet Lip Glides) and overall, the formula was consistent with the permanent range of Velvet Lip Glides.

is supposed to be a hybrid between lipstick and lipgloss that is hydrating, richly pigmented, and comfortable to wear. They have a stronger color payoff, a non-tacky consistency, and a smoothness to their consistency that is a lot like a good lipstick, while they have a plusher, thicker texture that gives lips a plumper, fuller look along with a glossy sheen that is more like a gloss. Some of the lighter shades settled into lip lines, but it varied from shade to shade. The wear varied between three and five hours for me, which is more like a gloss than a lipstick. They develop a more “velvety” finish, which is code for “less shine” after two to three hours, and at that point, they tend to look more like a natural finish lipstick than a gloss. I would classify the formula more as a pigmented gloss than a glossy lipstick, if I had to put it firmly in one box. The formula has a vanilla scent but had no discernible taste to me.

Rapture

Rapture is a medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a cream finish with faint pearl. It had good color payoff, though it was not opaque, that applied evenly to the lips. I felt like the consistency of this shade had more slip and was more prone to settling in my lip lines to a more noticeable degree. The gloss was comfortable, though, and hydrating over the four hours it lasted for.

Night Together

Night Together is a muted, medium rosy plum with warmer undertones and a cream finish. There was an almost imperceptible pearl in it, which I could see in the photos but not in person. The consistency was smooth, velvety, and lightweight with a non-sticky finish that was comfortable to wear. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that stayed on well for four and a half hours. The formula felt hydrating while I wore it.

Californiacation

Californiacation is a medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish with moderate shine. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that went on fairly evenly, but this was a harder shade to apply and avoid slight streaking (especially around the edges or if I pressed my lips together). There was slight color that gathered in my deeper lip lines, though it wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance. It wore well for four hours and was hydrating over time.

Immoral

Immoral is a bright, medium-dark fuchsia pink with cool undertones and faint shimmer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and did not appear streaky, though there was a touch of color that pulled into my lip lines. The texture was lightweight, smooth without being tacky but still felt like it adhered well enough not to slide around while worn. It lasted for four and a half hours and was moisturizing while worn.

Staying Alive

Staying Alive is a bright, dark berry with cooler undertones and a natural shine. The gloss was nearly opaque in a single layer, though I could see my lip freckle for sure. The texture was velvety, almost gel-like but non-sticky, and comfortable to wear. It stayed on nicely for five hours and was moisturizing to wear.

Burning Love

Burning Love is a bright, medium red with cool, pink undertones and a glossy sheen. It had good pigmentation in a single layer, which applied evenly across the lips without visible streaks. The texture was lightweight, smooth, and a little gel-like without tackiness. This shade wore well for four and a half hours and was lightly hydrating over time.

Well….I do love 4 out of 6 here. I’m not as into the 2 very pink shades as much, but that’s just my taste. Although, I *would* wear Immoral, as it has enough of a fuchsia hue to it.

I like all of these except for the lightest shade Night Together. I’ll probably pick up this set. I own one Velvet lip glide in the color Playpen I like the formula. And I could use a few more pink lip colors. Ok not really but I’m getting it anyway lol.

I thought there were only 1 1/2 I’d wear. Maybe there are more. But it would be the same mistake I made on the lip pencils. I do applaud the set and the Ulta issue.

I’ve really been enjoying this set– it’s much more wearable than the Christmas set, and I’m a huge fan of the formula. This is basically six variations on pink & they each have their charms. I’m trying to enjoy this one, since NARS is not cruelty-free anymore and I don’t think I’ll be buying any more of these guys 🙁

Different strokes for different folks. That’s what makes makeup such fun. For me, it’s the xmas set that is totally wearable and these not so much. Think of it: there are people who wear only black for point makeup. Or only classic red lips. Or only nude eyeshadow. Good vote with your anti animal cruelty stance/conscience. It is def inhumane, not to mention unnecessary.

Even though I think these are very pretty, I just can’t see myself purchasing products that are limited edition because if I fall in love with them … well you see where this is going. Sometimes I will purchase LE but not often. *sigh*

What a perfect idea to have six mini sized lip glosses that are as good as a lipstick! My only wish is that it would have been more versatile if Nars had varied the shades more – a darker berry, a red etc. But this is an excellent deal if you like those shades. Thank you for the review Christine.

I don’t have any of these colors in my ginormous lip stash (gasp!), because almost all of these are harder for me to pull off, but I think I will grab this, with 5x platinum perk points. I haven’t tried the NARS velvet glides, love the mini size, this is relatively affordable way to fill in gaps in my color stash, and “push the envelope” to see if I can get away with these colors, as sometimes, I surprise myself. And if some of the colors don’t work out, I can probably adjust the shade with a lip liner to make it work.

Oh yeah, that’s right! 5x’s Points! Thanks for reminding me about this, Katherine! If I get this, I’ll keep them and just tweak Californication and Immoral because giving those 2 to my my daughter would just be… awkward? ?

Happy to enable! Ahahahahaha, yeah, not too crazy about some of the names here, and agree, doesn’t seem quite right to pass those along to your daughter 😉

Californication and some of the others are song names, which would lead me to assume they all are. May make it less awkward for you. Californication is the title song on a Red Hot Chili Peppers album; Staying Alive and Night Together are also song titles.

I ordered this set online. I’ve been using it for a few days & love it. I agree with your thoughts about texture. They’re almost gel-like, sort of cushiony and plush, and no tackiness. I haven’t personally noticed any settling in my lip lines but I haven’t worn Rapture for an extended period. Every color works for me; it would be difficult to pick a favorite. I wish they weren’t limited edition!

I bought these and I love them. I am very fair with cool undertones and I especially love Rapture, a coral pink that I can not only pull off but is very flattering.

I’m definitely getting my hands on this set! From the swatches, there are definitely my colors and I love the velvety finish for my liquid lipsticks!

I had my eye on this. Those light pinks are what I was skeptical about but they all look great to me!

Picked these up in my local Ulta today. They received them on Monday but I was told that they could not put it out until Sunday. (why do they do this???) Actually, it didn’t even make it to the display, I had to ask for it . It seems they were hiding a limited number in the back room.
Anyway, I love it! So far, I give an A!!!

Christine! I would love to be able to see a collage of all 6 colors together. It is very hard to compare the colors to each other as I scroll down the page I scroll up and down and don’t have a good sense of it. Thanks!

You can do that in the Swatch Gallery any time you want! You just look up swatches by the product, e.g. “NARSissist Velvet Lip Glide” set.
