Someone on Instagram asked me earlier if I could recommend a non-matte liquid lipstick, and the first thing that popped into my head were these NARS Velvet Lip Glides.
The Velvet Lip Glides are part of the NARS permanent collection, but these three — Suck (why is it called that…?), Bait and Disruptor — are LE Nordstrom exclusive shades from the Pop Goes the Easel collection.
I think the Velvet Lip Glides are just generally BOMB. They’re super saturated, comfy, and they don’t bleed my lips dry, unlike so many other liquid lipsticks that are ridiculously drying. The formula stays a little wet on your pout. It doesn’t dry all the way down, and did I mention that they’re REALLY comfortable? They feel kinda like a moisturizing, long-wearing gloss (non-sticky), except that they last much longer.
I was wearing red Disruptor yesterday afternoon when I went to Costco to get diapers and baby wipes (WHAT-WHAT! #momlife), because that’s how I roll. I put it on right before I left the house around 5, did stuff, came back, had dinner, did more stuff, and by 8 it had faded to a subtle red stain.
These are $26 each, so they’re kinda expensive, but at least they’re fabulous.
Heck, all of the Velvet Lip Glides are fabulous! And these three are too.
