Nars Velvet Lip Glide Review

nars-velvet-lip-glide-mind-game-gift-setHappy December 1st!  It’s almost the holidays and that makes me so excited.  I am looking forward to resting and relaxing away from the grind of it all, and I hope that you’re going to get to also. 

Check out what’s in my coat pocket right now: Nars Velvet Lip Glide in Bound.

To be honest, it took me a while to figure out what the Nars Velvet Lip Glides were all about.  I thought that they were supposed to be matte, so I got confused when they didn’t go on matte and neither did they set to a matte finish. 

But finally, I got it.  This is a fully pigmented gloss that feels smooth on the lips instead of tacky or sticky like regular lip gloss or lip balm. The range of colours is great: there’s lots of nude shades, reds, and then darker berries.  

As with everything else, no matter what the formula, nothing matters until you find a colour that you love: in my case, Bound, which is the perfect soft neutral pink that’s wearable with literally everything.  It’s an apply and go kind of colour that looks so natural.  

Here’s a rare but much-needed selfie of me wearing this colour.  Pretty natural and your natural lip colour comes through a bit too.

The Velvet Glides are not long-lasting or moisturizing, which is their downfall.  They feel comfortable and smooth but I found that I needed to reapply if I ate or drank something and that’s not ideal for a busy day or for situations where there are going to be pictures being taken.

If you want a gloss that’s not a gloss, more matte and more smooth and satiny, then this would be perfect.

It’s $45 and comes with six colours of the Nars Velvet Lip Glide. It’s $59 and perfect if you want to play with some darker colours of the Velvet Lip Glide.  They’re the perfect size to take to parties or events.
