NARS Velvet Lip Glides (Toy, Deviant, Bound, Playpen, Mineshaft, Danceteria, No.54)

Today I'm reviewing the new NARS Velvet Lip Glide! Available in 12 shades, these hybrid lip colors are supposed to be hydrating, long-lasting and intensely pigmented. They are enhanced with an Oil Infusion Complex, which allows for a very smooth consistency.

The Velvet Lip Glides are nothing like a matte liquid lipstick, they don't set on the lips so they aren't transfer resistant and the finish isn't ultra matte. They are shiny like a lipgloss, very pigmented, hydrating and so comfortable on the lips! They glide smoothly onto the lips and are non-sticky, and when I say non-sticky I really mean it. You have to try it to believe it!

The color payoff is incredible, although some shades (Bound, Toy and Deviant) required a bit more product to achieve complete opacity. Playpen has a tendency to gather into fine lines and Toy is a bit patchy, but the 5 other shades applied with even coverage and didn't settle into fine lines.

They are surprisingly long-wearing, the light shades (Playpen and Bound) wore well for 3-4 hours, while the other shades lasted 5-6 hours. I did notice a bit of feathering with the darker colors (Deviant and Toy) so I would suggest to outline your lips with a lip pencil.

The formula is versatile, you can apply a thick layer if you want a glossy finish and intense color payoff or apply a thin layer (wipe off the excess on the inner rim of the tube) if you prefer a satin finish. Because the product is highly pigmented, the colors aren't too sheer if you apply a thin layer.

By the way, the Velvet Lip Glides have a lovely vanilla scent (similar to MAC lipsticks) but no taste.
