NARS Velvet Lip Glide: A quick review

NARS Velvet Lip Glide: A quick review
What it is: A new, semi-matte finish liquid lipstick formulated with precious oils to coat lips with full-coverage colour.

Beauty bonus: Thirteen shades make choosing just one difficult! Our fave? The pinky nude shade "Playpen". It's just light enough without being a total washout but looks a little more "nude" than a classic pink.

Beauty bummer: We found we needed a balm primer before wearing. Even with the oil formulation, lips felt a bit dry.

Overall: This liquid lip glides on very nicely. It doesn't have a watery, thin feeling like some liquid lip colours, but rather boasts a luxe, full-coverage feel from the get go.

We were impressed with the fact it goes on opaque and not streaky — and doesn't feather with wear. #love

As we mentioned in the beauty bummer above, lips felt a bit dry without a balm base. But even with that complaint, we noticed our lips (thankfully!) lacked the crispy, dry appearance some liquid lipsticks leave behind, which redeemed these lip colours for us.

Would recommend? While it's not our favourite liquid lip colour of all time, it's still a good product and the amazing array of shades is sure to attract more than a few colour fans.
