Beauty Find - NARS Velvet Lip Glide

NARS Velvet Lip Glide in Bound 
Leave it to the amazing makeup artist and cosmetics creator, Francois Nars to come up with a completely new lip color category - Velvet Lip Glide.

Sounds great doesn't it?

And it is.  But you should know that it's NOT a lip gloss, or even a liquid lipstick for that matter. It's a new type of hybrid which has features of both, but is unique.

The texture and feel of the lip glide is exactly like velvet.  It's extremely lightweight, with a bit of a moisturizing gel feel.  It was hydrating, but not oily or greasy at all.  It's not a long wear products, and I did  find that there was some color transfer when drinking/eating, but the base layer did stay on my lips similar to a stain. NARS Velvet Lip Glide was developed with Oil Infusion Complex, an innovative concentration of precious oils, fused to create a smooth-glide effect. 

The finish is not a complete matte, it's semi matte, and the colors have so much pigment that when I applied one layer on upper and lower lips they were completely covered and even.  
Bound, (shown above) was one of my favorites for an easy, every day look. It's a very pretty and versatile rosy-mauve shade that is a perfect "your lips but better"color.

Another color I loved, beautiful for Fall, is the rich, deep purple, Unspeakable (shown, left).  Unspeakable is the perfect chic shade when you want a darker, bolder lip that's not a red or berry color. 

Once you try one NARS Velvet Lip Glide, it will be hard not to pick up more! - RLB
