Last week, I attended a preview of the new NARS Velvet Lip Glide liquid lipsticks ($34) in Toronto, with special guest and NARS National Lead Stylist Gillian Okopny. I was lucky enough to end up in Gillian’s chair for my own lippie application and she chose the vampy La Maine Bleue as the perfect match for me. As she applied the shade to my lips, she dabbed some onto her fingers and swiped it onto my cheeks as well, creating a cohesive lip and cheek look. And while initially I was a bit apprehensive about the lip glide not being matte enough to my liking, after wearing various shades all through the weekend, I am officially obsessed! The highly-pigmented formula is packed with NARS’ Oil Infusion Complex and feels like heaven on my lips – not even a little drying. Right now, I’m all about Danceteria, but the rest of the shades are just as fun. I can see how NARS Velvet Lip Glide lippies can become slightly addictive – they are so easy to wear!
NARS Velvet Lip Glide comes in 13 poppy shades, and will be available in stores on October 1st. Check out the rest of the shades below.
