NARS has always been about high-performance makeup, and that certainly holds true with the new Powermatte Lip Pigment Collection. These new liquid lipsticks have a matte finish, with excellent color saturation and long-wear; so comfortable you’ll want multiple shades!
I’m seriously picky about any liquid lipsticks that I try, especially ones with a matte finish. Some are too drying, some flake off, in some cases, there’s just not much of a shade selection. None of those are issues with NARS Powermatte Lip Pigments.
I’ve been really impressed with the Powermatte Lip Pigments long wear time. It’s nothing for me to apply in the morning, power through coffee and lunch, and still have good color late in the afternoon–without reapplying! I also love the comfortable, lightweight feel on the lips, although it’s not a cream (it’s kind of a gel-cream!). And the twenty shades, from pretty neutrals to badass bolds, are all totally wearable.
I confess that my favorite shades are neutrals (above left to right): American Woman, Get It On, Just What I Needed, Slow Ride and Walk It Out. The one I’m wearing on repeat is Walk It Out. Love reds? There are five!
