NARS Velvet Lip Glide Review and Swatches

I always review new and noteworthy releases, but I often forget to share with you the tried and true products that I reach for on a daily basis. NARS Velvet Lip Glides are one of these products that I return to again and again. They are unique, comfortable, long-wearing and just down-right reliable.

Let’s have a closer look at this unique formula.

What are the NARS Velvet Lip Glides?

Jump on the liquid lip bandwagon with the latest innovation from Nars. Glides onto lips effortlessly and drench lips in unparalleled colour with a comfortable, semi-matte finish. Formulated to offer all the perks of a liquid lipstick – longevity, intense pigment and an on-trend matte effect – without drying out the lips. The result is continuous comfortable and confident colour in one sweep.

Velvet Lip Glide Formula

This formula is one my very favourites ever.  But unlike traditional liquid lipsticks, the Velvet Lip Glides apply like a soft and buttery balm, and dry down to a weightless, almost stain-like finish but with a satin kinda feel. The result is a punchy pigment, with ultimate comfort and longevity.

Velvet Lip Glide Application and Wear

The application is made easy with flat-sided doe foot applicator that allows you complete precision and control. Wear time is fabulous, with the option of easily re-applying through the day should you need it. Otherwise, the formula fades really evenly throughout the day. None of that crusty half-there colour that most liquid lipsticks leave behind.

Overall Thoughts

I adore this formula. You honestly get the best of all the different kind of lip products available but rolled into one super-comfortable, pigmented, long-lasting formula.

I would highly recommend picking up a NARS Velvet Lip Glide set when they become available. This gives you the option of many different colours in a small, more travel-friendly size.
