I am not afraid to admit, I am a lipstick addict. Even though I might not be always wearing it, I am a lipstick addict. I still obsess over the latest colours of the season and love the way a pop of colour on your lips can make an outfit! But, to be honest, I have never been into lip gloss. I love the easy application but I can’t go 5 minutes without some of my hair getting caught in its goop. Because of this, I have always gravitated towards classic lipsticks for their non-stick and no-mess. So, when liquid lipsticks came on the scene this past year, you can imagine at first I was a little hesitant. But, fast forward to today, I am liquid lipstick obsessed!
This month, I was super excited to review some new killer colours from NARS new line of Velvet Lip Glides! They give you that perfect balance of coverage and comfort which is something I can 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!
After doing a little research, the reason why they have been able to get this perfect marriage is because of their Oil Infusion Complex, which 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!
I was able to snag these early, but the NARS Velvet Lip Glides are available at all NARS retailers (Sephora, Hudson’s Bay, Holt Renfrew, Nordstrom, and Murale)
and www.narscosmetics.com this month in Canada (October)
