The Beauty Bible: Lipstick Of The Month… NARS Velvet Lip Glade
One again for this weeks Lipstick Of The Month I am venturing into my own Make-Up bag… this is one that has being hyped about ALL over social media, and of course, me being me i always have to go and try out these new products (my bank account wishes i didn’t, trust me!). Introducing NARS Velvet Lip Glide in shade STRIPPED.
I am, admittedly a huge NARS fan after being converted not too long ago by their Sheer Glow Foundation (another blog opportunity arising right there!) and since then I have being loving every NARS product that I see.
NARS has become one of the most talked about luxury make up brands. And, that is all thanks to their iconic blushes and bronzers! (and not forgetting their provocative names…)
Let’s start with the packaging… Have you ever seen the Iconic NARS Packaging? Its Minimalist, matte black and the NARS calligraphy looks absolutely gorgeous, as per usual. Their unique sophisticated, and statement bold packaging is truly unforgettable, chic, and I feel just adds to the luxury of the products.
This is how NARS describe their product “Covetable comfort meets confident colour in a high-pigment formula that glides like a gloss, cloaks like a lipstick—and feels like nothing else. Semi-matte colour glides on a stays supple without drying or feeling sticky. Developed with Oil Infusion Complex, an innovative concentration of precious oils, fused to create a smooth-glide effect. Fully coats lips on contact with smooth, saturated, semi-matte style.“
The NARS Velvet Lip Glide is a liquid lipstick, it glides on effortlessly like a lip gloss, but thankfully acts just as a lipstick would. That means that there is none of that tacky, ‘gloopyness’ texture that many lip glosses have in (finally, no more hair getting stuck in lip gloss!) but instead it is a luxurious soft and buttery like formula. So, say bye to nasty drying out mattes. This formula is the best of both worlds, not too matte, but not too shiny!
This lippy will be perfect for your bridal make up however you want to look. Seeking natural but noticeable nudes? Or a versatile berry Autumn Lip? There are plenty of shades to mix and match between, you could even have one look for the morning and another by evening! Again, we couldn’t just pick one colour, in all honesty we love all of them! Ones i am loving for this Autumn though do have to be; Bound, a soft rose pink. Unspeakable, a garnet colour. And, finally Deviant, a deep burgundy.
These killer colours from NARS new line of Velvet Lip Glide gives you that perfect balance of coverage and comfort which is something we can all get behind. Usually, after a few hours of wearing full coverage liquid lipsticks, they leave you feeling dry. But these NARS’ hybrid lip colour combines the fluidity and effortlessness of a gloss with the coverage and comfort of a lipstick!
The reason as to why they have been able to get this perfect marriage is because of their Oil Infusion Complex. This helps with their smooth-glide effect but still delivers on the highly saturated colour. Plus, the applicator is like a little cushion for you lips! This makes it super easy to apply, and to top up on the day of your wedding! Did we mention its super moisturising?!
If you are wanting precision, or a little pop of a darker under tone, then the perfect lip liner to pair with this gorgeous lip colour has to be from NARS. When I purchased ‘Stripped’ I was recommended by one of the lovely assistants that I should get the shade ‘Morocco’. This shade is actually darker than the colour of the lip colour, however this works really well, as I can outline my lips, and blend it in to mix the shade up a little. Choosing a darker shade also allows you to make that pout look plumper and refined…
