PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS
  • "This is AMAZING. I'll be short in saying it's a super liquid formula that smooths on into a powder soft finish. It's super thin and doesn't ever feel tacky or sticky, doesn't crease crack or fade, and doesn't transfer onto ANYTHING." in 119 reviews
  • "This product is absolutely amazing. It comes in different colors. It's at good value for this product. It met my expectations and I hope it meets yours! Very long lasting throughout the day. I would recommend to others who love lip products like me:) " in 56 reviews

Review for: Light My Fire, American Woman, Save The Queen more...
I can't even fully express how obsessed I am with this lip color. I prefer matte lipsticks, and have been searching high and low for a matte formula that is not overly drying. I had reached the point where I resigned myself to the fact that my trusty MAC matte lipsticks, which are beautiful but require a lot of lip prep and maintenance, were the only thing out there. Then I came across NARS Powermatte. Let me tell you, this lip pigment is amazing. It is super-pigmented, easy to apply, and lasts for about 2-3 hours without needing a touch up. And the best part - it wears beautifully... no cakiness or flakiness on the inside of my lips like most matte formulas. When this fades, it is a soft, almost ombre look and touching up is a breeze with no build-up. I put it on in immediately after purchasing with no lip prep, no liner, no anything, and it lasted through lunch and errands before starting to fade. Just make sure you let it dry down completely before doing anything lip-related - it takes a full 5-10 minutes. I already own 3 colors and will definitely purchase more. If you like the matte look on your lips, this is a must-have.

Review for: American Woman more...
I was so annoyed that it took NARS so long to get into the liquid lip game because they do lip products so well, but I’m glad that they didn’t rush it because this is perfection! The applicator is really great and the shape makes it easy to get a super sharp and precise application so you don’t need to lip line first. The formula is super thin, when swatching I accidentally tipped the base so it was parallel with the ground and a few drops dropped onto the floor of Sephora! But because it is so thin it is super comfy on your lips and isn’t drying. It isn’t budge proof so if you want something that will wear all day looking like you just put it on, this isn’t it. It will transfer to whatever you put your lips on but it is longer wearing and more matte than a bullet lipstick. I got the shade American Woman which is gorgeous and super flattering on olive skintones! It is a bit hard to describe the shade, so you should look up swatches for yourself. I’m sad because I love this formula but there aren’t any other colors that I’m really drawn to.

Review for: Walk This Way, Light My Fire more...
I have this in two colors - a nude and a bright orange-red. I like the formula - it’s thin and very pigmented. I’m not a huge fan of the applicator. It’s like a traditional doe foot but longer and completely rigid. It kind of feels like you’re applying the lipstick with a tiny piece of cardboard. It makes it easy to line your lips with the product, but takes some getting used to. Not my favorite. That said, the lipstick has good staying power, no fragrance, and doesn’t feather - even without lip liner. The line also has a great range of shades.

OBSESSED. I love this lip formula. The application can be a little bit hard because the product is so liquid-y. You have to shake before usage. It’s super precise and soooo pigmented. It goes on so smooth is is not drying. You can apply layers without it getting cakey and gross as well. You’ll probably have to reapply after eating just in the center of your lips but other than that, it stays wonderfully! It doesn’t feather or run once it sets. I’ve been wearing these since the came out and I hope they introduce more colors!!!

Review for: Walk This Way, American Woman more...
Purchased this at Sephora today. I’m a big NARS fan. I used to wear their gloss almost every day. I had moved on to another brand in favor of long wear lip color recently. I really like this. It is definitely long wear for a few hours at least and pretty smudge resistant when dry. It fades with time rather than flaking off. I was worried at first it would make any flaws or chapped areas of my lips stand out but I don’t think that will be the case. I purchased American Woman today. I can definitely see myself buying more colors.

Review for: Starwoman more...
I received a sample of this and WOW this Starwoman shade is gorgeous!! This is a cool tone red that's very flattering for yellow skin tone. The pigmentation is amazing. Super long-lasting. I wore this for 7+ hours and with eating and drinking it still looked great! (the only part that rubbed off was the inner portion of my lips) Very comfortable to wear. The only thing preventing it from getting a 5 star is that it doesn't dry completely and does transfer a little bit and can smudge. However very minimal.

Review for: Don't Stop more...
I was very disappointed in this product as I was expecting so much more from such a high end brand. The color was beautiful and highly pigmented, but it just didn’t last; within hours, the color had smudged all over my lip area (maybe a lip liner would help prevent this?). Additionally, I was told it would be less drying because it was a pigment, but that is definitely not the case. I have really dry lips naturally and this just parched them - made them look like raisins. I don’t recommend this product.

Review for: Starwoman, American Woman more...
This just might be the best matte lipstick I own. The color is a lovely dark blue based red and is super pigmented! It's a very thin watery consistency, but you only need one coat to get completely opaque coverage, and you don't need lip liner with this stuff either. The doe foot applicator is great because it's soft yet stiff and very skinny, which makes it easy to outline my lips and fill them in. The best part is it doesn't even feel like you're wearing anything on your lips! It's not drying or constricting at all and is just incredibly comfortable to wear. This stuff lasts a long time too, and I can only remove it with oil. I will definitely be purchasing more shades from this line.

UPDATE: just got a full size of American Woman free with my Ulta points and I’m love. Same amazing formula and this shade is the perfect MLBB shade for me.

Review for: American Woman more...
Beautiful color subtle enough to go with everyday wear but pigmented enough to pop on your lips goes on smooth feels like absolutely nothing is on your lips with usual matte lipsticks it feels trustee and try this literally feels like there's nothing on it the only problem I have is I feel it doesn't last long enough my Kat Von D lipstick last for hours and hours this comes off when I drink sometimes and it seems to fade out more quickly than I would expect from a Nars product.

Love this lipstick! I bought it to wear for my birthday and I'm absolutely in love and have not stopped wearing it since! I adore the applicator, it's not your usual doe foot it is more of a triangular shape which is great for lining out your lips so you don't have to do an extra step by wearing lip liner underneath it. It also lasts a long time and hardly comes off when eating or drinking. Besides it being on the expensive side, I don't have one complaint.

So knowing that NARS tests on animals , does that detour you from purchasing anything from them? Just curious ?
