Not your average liquid lipstick ! Nars Velvet Lip Glide – review and swatches 

Nars Velvet Lip Glides review and swatches  ( Playpen and No 54)

I love liquid lipsticks but they aren’t the most easiest thing to wear.  I have quite dry lips and most liquid lipsticks tend to dry them out even more.  But my lips loved the formula of the new Nars Velvet Lip Glides !  

These are a hybrid between lipstick and lip gloss with a hydrating formula similar to a lip balm.  The lipsticks contain a infusion complex keeps lips smooth and they have the colour pay-off of a lipstick and the shine of a lip gloss.

Just as the name suggests , these feel plush and velvety on the lips.  Though these look quite gloss at first, it soon settles down to a slightly less shiny finish.  Depending on the intensity of the shades these lipsticks will stain your lips and the wear time is around 5 to 7 hours.

Though the Internet seems to be divided about these Lip Glides, I personally love them.  The formula of these are unlike any other lip product I’ve tried.  They plump up my lips and makes them look pretty good 🙂  There are some really beautiful shades in the collection ranging from a vampy purple  (Toy) to a dusty rose pink  (Bound).

If you love these as much as I do, I suggest you check out the new Sarah Moon collection,   which has a set of 6 mini liquid lipsticks.
