NARS No. 54 Velvet Lip Glide ($26.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium red with neutral-to-warm undertones and a cream finish. It had opaque color payoff that applied with smooth, even coverage. The texture was smooth with a little weight (but it wasn't heavy) and just slightly emphasized a few of my lip lines, which I could only see close-up.
