NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment Review & Swatches

Liquid matte lipsticks are really popular right now. I mean, Kylie Jenner’s lip kits are always sold out. My go to liquid lipsticks are from Dior, but I was super excited when I got my hands on NARS’s new Powermatte Lip Pigments. Let’s be real, there are tons of liquid lip sticks you can buy from. In my opinion, many liquid lipsticks look chalky on lips (especially during the winter when our lips are super chapped). To me, some liquid lipsticks look like acrylic paint awkwardly piled on someone’s lips.

But NARS’s Powermatte Lip Pigments are a game changer! First, there are 20 shades! Yes 20! The full set ranges from nudes, pinks, violets, reds (five reds!!), and deeper shades like a deep mahogany and pitch black. I love the packaging. I like lippies that are square shaped. They don’t slide all of the place and easier to hold. The applicator is a bit smaller, making it easier for precise application. The lip stick itself  is super liquid-y. It’s more watery than a cream and swipes on very quickly. It feels as though it sinks into your lips in a very natural way which makes it look more natural. And the name backs the product 100%. I put it on before dinner and drinks and hours later, it was still on my lips! It literally didn’t wipe off at all. I also swatched this product on my arm, and I honestly couldn’t get it off. I tried makeup wipes, body scrub, and showered TWICE. So ladies, if you’re looking for a lippie that won’t come off this is absolutely the product you should buy.

Powermatte Lip Pigments will be available first thing July 5th on the Sephora mobile app, July 6th in Nars boutiques and on, and then July 13 at Sephora stores for $26.

Final Thoughts: I absolutely love and would buy more! These are perfect for when you can’t touch up your makeup frequently. These are perfect for brides/bridesmaids because you literally can just apply once in the morning and not have to touch up hours later.
