Beauty Find- NARS PowerMatte Lip Pigment


NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment - Slow Ride 

I love that the new NARS new collection of weightless, liquid matte lip colors literally has a shade for everyone - and that they're all named after great songs from every decade.


NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment is the matte lip color that many of you have been searching for. It has a thin, lightweight, non sticky texture and applies like an ink to your lips to instantly lock in color.  It also has a doe-foot applicator which is not too thin or wide, and hugs your lips, which made applying it easy


NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment Swatches 
The NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment formula went on smoothly and evenly with just one coat.  I was even able to line my lips with the end of the applicator tip. It dried instantly to a natural matte finish (it did not look powder dry - but they had just a touch of sheen which made the shades look beautiful and natural).,

The NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment is opaque after 1 layer, but it can also be layered for a more intense effect, without drying out lips either.

During the day the color remained a stain even through drinking and eating. The NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment didn't dry out my lips, flake and most importantly it didn't transfer to clothes, skin etc.  I only needed to touch up once late in the day to refresh the shade.

The NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment collection is made up of four main color categories, Nude, Pink, Red and Berry*.  While I gravitate toward nude shades, I found a lot of pretty, bold reds and pinks that I also loved when I wanted to switch up my look.

NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment Don't Stop 
Some of my favorites were the Slow Ride  (pictured, top), a soft, brown pink that works with many different skin tones as a nude shade.  I also loved the NARS online exclusiveJust What I Needed, a pretty, burnished rose. 

As for reds, I fell in love with  Don't Stop  a pretty Geranium red (pictured, left), with a touch of orange. For a deeper brick red, Starwoman was also beautiful. 

If you're into very deep, dark shades, NARS has you covered there too! Done It Again is a dark chocolate brown and Rock With You is deep grape purple.

With is intense pigment, lightweight, non drying wear and the sheer breadth of colors, you can use shade after shade of NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment to your heart's content! - RLB
