So today we thought we would do a post on the Nars Powermatte Lip Pigment which although isn’t completely new, just dropped in Mecca Australia today! So after we were trying them on, we were so SHOOK by the formula, the texture and everything so if you guys want to know what we thought of these new lipsticks, keep on reading!
So these new liquid lipsticks, are SUPER matte and dries almost immediately for a smudge resistant long wearing lip colour. What we were super surprised about was how LIGHT the formula was! It was literally like water which is quite good as it makes the application a lot easier and smoother to apply without over applying it and having it cake up on the lips.
These lipsticks also have a light vanilla scent to them but like most liquid lipsticks, they do. What we also found amazing was that one swipe was enough for the whole mouth with no streaks whatsoever. After application, you will find a slight oil feeling to it kind of like a balm when you rub your lips together so they do give you a little bit of moisture. But just like all matte lipsticks, they do become quite drying when they have set and it is definitely crucial to apply lip balm before putting the actual lipstick on but they are not as bad as some liquid lipsticks which dry out your entire mouth.
We also loved the range of colours they come in with 19 shades which range from pink, orange, red, berry, brown, to even black so there is bound to be at least one shade you love! After doing swatches of the colours, and applying them onto our lips the colours would not budge from our skin and there was definitely no transfer at all making it perfect for going out!
The only downside we would say is that as it is quite wet and water like, the application of this product can get REALLY messy and it does also get all over your teeth! It also does require quite a good amount of control as it can just get everywhere and precision is key with application as it dries fairly quickly and can stain your skin!
