NARS Joyride Air Matte Lip Color ($26.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a medium-dark, pinky-coral with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. The texture was more velvety with a fair amount of slip initially, which dried down a bit but never felt like it really adhered to my lips, so it still felt a little bit slippery while worn.
Despite the slip, the color applied evenly and had opaque coverage in a single layer, and it took two and a half hours before the application looked rough, where color pulled into my lip lines and gathered around slight texture imperfections. I was surprised since I'd normally see this when initially applied, but this was a case where it looked nice initially but really degraded and was one of those products that wore away poorly. It was decent for two and a half hours, though most of the color lasted closer to four hours, while the formula felt non-drying.
