July 4, 2017

For Fall 2017, NARS adds a new addition to its liquid lipstick collection with Powermatte Lip Pigment.

Packaged in a sleek semi-transparent tube about 4 inches by 3/4 inches, the NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment boasts a formula of “liquified pigment, zero-gravity feel, infinite matte color saturation with ultra-flexible long-wear”. You get 5.5 ml/0.18 oz of product, which is about the same as NARS Lip Gloss and just a bit less than NARS Velvet Lip Glide.

There are 20 beautiful shades available, ranging from nudes, pinks, reds to darker browns, plums and even black.

Slow Ride – Soft Brown Pink
London Calling – Lilac Pink
Walk This way – Rose Pink
Under My Thumb – Burgundy
Get It On – Tan Rose
Warm Leatherette – Rich Berry Pink
Save The Queen – Dusty Mauve
Low Rider – Bright Peachy Pink
Give It Up – Fuchsia
Get Up Stand Up – Bright Pink Coral
Light My Fire – Vivid Orange Red
Don’t Stop – Geranium
American Woman – Chestnut Rose
Star Woman – Vivid Blue Red
Rock With You – Deep Mulberry
Done It Again – Chocolate Brown
Paint It Black – Black
Wild Night – Deep Lilac
Just What I Needed – Burnished Rose
Just Push Play – Red Currant

The doe-foot applicator was really easy to use and provided precise application. One swipe along my lips gave me instant full coverage that covered fine lines and discolorations while drying down to a super lightweight, matte finish. I normally stay away from matte lipsticks since they tend to dry out my constantly-chapped lips even more. But I was very impressed with how non-drying the Powermatte Lip Pigment was, even when I applied it san lip balm.

Plus the wear was fantastic! The color managed to last through hours – including a drink and a meal – without any touch-ups, yet came off easily with Bioderma Sensibio H20 Micellar Solution. I did not have a problem with the lipstick bleeding, though I did find it to stick to my teeth if I over-applied or did not blot right away, mostly due to its runny texture.

All in all, I am giving NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment two thumbs up. Thanks NARS for making one of the best matte liquid lipsticks out there!
