NARS Le Palace Velvet Lip Glide ($26.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a deep red with subtle, cool undertones and very fine pearl. It had intense color payoff that applied smoothly and evenly. The texture was smooth, almost gel-like, and easy to spread across the lips and did not well up into my lip lines. This shade wore well for almost five hours and was hydrating over time.
