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.
