Review for: London Calling more...
This changes the game for matte liquid lipsticks/ stains because this is a 2 in one and it doesn’t dry your lips out or shrink or crack. It’s actually moisturizing because it is oil based. I went for this shade and got the lip liner for it in Le Lavandou. I can’t say enough how much I love this shade I’ve never been so happy about buying a lip product til now because it’s phenomenal and it’s so flattering on. The pigment is super intense. You only need a little product a little goes a long way. I used bite beauty lip primer works so good. I also used a separate brush to spread the product. This product is amazing quality I hope they continue to keep this. I actually might go return my Mac liquid lipstick because this nars one is a winner in every aspect. I am going to buy other shades in the future because Starwoman is sold out 💔. I do recommend to scrub your lips before using. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this I don’t mean to sound corny lol

Review for: Under My Thumb more...
Best liquid lipstick ever!!

I cannot get over how perfect this formula is! It is so richly pigmented and does not feel drying or accentuate the lines on my lips. Never in my life have I worn a liquid lipstick that feels as light and comfortable as these do. It does have a very light vanilla cupcake(?) scent to it, but I imagine it will not bother most people.

The packaging is sleek and feels great in my hands. I also appreciate that there are little windows on each side of the tube that allow you to view the true color of each shade. Also, the unique applicator allows you to apply the product with precision and ease.

The shade Under My Thumb, a stunning merlot, complements my cool-toned, fair skin beautifully. Starwoman is the most flattering blue-toned red I’ve come across! Most red lipsticks pull too orange/warm on my pink skin, so this shade has been perfect for me. Both of these shades will be wonderful to wear during the holidays!

The only downside I can think of is that this formula does not dry down completely, so it does have a small amount of transfer when doing the “kiss test” on the back of my hand, but this has not been a problem for me. It still has amazing lasting power, and the slight amount of sheen it has catches light beautifully.

Review for: Under My Thumb more...
This was the absolute perfect shade of deep red! I had my makeup done for an event and my MUA uses this shade and I feel in love and had to buy it. Definitely worth the reasonable price point. I got compliments all night! It was not quite as longwearing as I anticipated (I had to reapply and it came off on glasses) but overall was really great. Don’t think I’ll be giving my boyfriend a kiss on the cheek with this on, but I will definitely wear it often!

Review for: American Woman, Starwoman more...
I have tried DOZENS of liquid lipsticks and this NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment is by far my favorite. The color goes on extremely smoothly and wears evenly without piling off. In addition, this lipstick is much less drying than other matte formulas so my lips don’t peel at the end of the day. My only complaint is that this lipstick isn’t transfer proof like others on the market, which can be a pain if your hoping for a goodnight kiss since no boy wants to leave covered in red lipstick.

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: 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: Slow Ride, Starwoman more...
I’m actually surprised to like this product so much. I was introduced to it because of my Sephora insider points. They gave me a free sample of this product in the shade “starwoman.” I noticed it was a little liquidy but it dries pretty quick. It stays on for a very long time and is complete matte without drying your lips. I was very satisfied with this product so I went and bought another one in the shade “slow ride” it is a beautiful nude color. Highly recommend!

Review for: Don't Stop more...
Obsessed with this lipstick. Definitely a new fav. Love the applicator it is very small and easy to work with. It makes it easy to draw straight and small lines around the lips with out getting messy. It dries fast and has no transfer. It is matte but not too drying. My lips still feel moisturized while also velvety. Would highly recommend and would definitely purchase other colors. NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment

Review for: London Calling, Don't Stop more...
I recently purchased the shades London Calling (what I am wearing in the attached photo) and Don't Stop from Ulta after hearing about the new Nars liquid lipsticks on Instagram. Typically, I do not like liquid lipsticks, as they tend to be really drying and the texture feels weird to me, however, these lipsticks are fantastic. They have a light, water-like texture when wet and dry down to a comfortable matte that stays with you all day without cracking or fading, even after eating and drinking. The colors are really opaque and the shade range of the whole line itself has something for everyone. I definitely plan on picking more of these up, as it is now my new holy grail  liquid lipstick.

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