If Lips Could Talk
If your lips could talk…what would they say? Would they speak of daring adventures, bold confidence and a fearless spirit? Mine would, well at least I hope they would.
This girl naturally reaches for nudes, mauves and pinks on an everyday basis but when I want my lips to do the talking for me or when i’m feeling feisty I always reach a vibrant red or a sassy fuchsia.
Without a doubt, my got-to lip products for those fun and fearless days always come from NARS Cosmetics.
If you know anything about NARS, then you know just how unabashedly confident they are as a brand. They never hold back and they always speak their minds with bold colour, enchanting finishes, daring formulations and innovative concepts. Their identity is in one word – inspirational.
I have always found a sense of aspiration in their founder and Creative Director – François Nars. He is the beating heart behind NARS and he is an incredible human who I admire greatly.
” Lips are all about fun. You can wear any lip colour you want, it’s all about attitude”
– François Nars
I wanted to share with you, three of my favourite lip formulations from NARS Cosmetics, all of which happen to be in liquid form. I absolutely ADORE the NARS Audacious Lipsticks and I have reviewed them in the past, which you can read here.
Powermatte Lip Pigment
The NARS Powermatte Lip Pigments ($34 CAD/$26 USD) are a product unlike any other and they are almost other worldly. They take the idea of a matte liquid lipstick and completely revolutionize the game with an utterly weightless, intensely powerful, inky formulation.
The innovative formula has a feather light feel that caresses the lips enveloping them in unbelievably rich, vibrant liquified pigments that deliver full coverage in one swipe. The inky, fluid like texture contains the Fluid Pigment Complex allows for an ultra comfortable, flexible fit that moves with your lips so no cracking, or desert like dryness.
The special slim, pointed doe-foot allows for precise application so you don’t need a liner with this range of 21 brilliant shades.
Get It On (tan rose), Slow Ride (soft brown pink), Low Rider (bright peachy pink), American Woman (chestnut rose), Save The Queen (dusty mauve), Walk This Way (rose pink), Warm Leatherette (rich berry pink), Give It Up (fuchsia), Get Up Stand Up (bright pink coral), Light My Fire (vivid orange red), Don’t Stop (geranium), StarWoman (vivid blue red), Under My Thumb (burgundy), London Calling (lilac pink), Rock With You (deep mulberry), Wild Night (deep lilac), Somebody To Love (rose brown), Spin Me (rich red brown), Vain (brick red), Done It Again (chocolate brown), Paint It Black (black)

Velvet Lip Glide
The NARS Velvet Lip Glides ($34 CAD/$26 USD) are an absolutely stunning formula. The perfect hybrid between a lipstick and a lip gloss, the Lip Glides coat the lips with the highly saturated colour you would expect from traditional lipstick but it glides onto the lips like an ultra-smooth gloss.
These long-lasting lip colours feature Water Lily and White Tea for antioxidant protection and ultimate hydration that makes for a delightfully smooth formula that melts into the lips and glides on for flawless application that won’t get messy or tricky. The comfortable semi-matte finish sets beautifully on the lips for hours of wear that never gets drying or cakey and they come in 14 vibrant shades.
Stripped (beige pink), Unlaced (nude pink), Playpen (pink coral), Bound (rose pink), Roseland (rose blush), Swing (neutral rose), Xenon (dusty mauve), Paradise Garage (soft plum), La Main Bleue (rich berry), 54 (raspberry red), Le Palace (deep cherry red), Unspeakable (garnet), MARS (warm brown), Area (rich chestnut)
Full Vinyl Lip Lacquer
The NARS Full Vinyl Lip Lacquers ($34 CAD/$26 USD) are a pretty incredible, avant garde product. These vivid, intensely pigmented lip colours deliver a lacquer like finish with buildable, full coverage.
This super creamy, smooth formula coats lips with intense beyond bold colour, a mirror-like shine, and shimmering drama (in some shades). It contains Vitamin E for deep hydration and a glossy finish that never gets sticky.
This is the ultimate lip product for when you’re in need of a serious dose of wow factor. The shade range and the patent like shine is outrageously beautiful.
At First Sight (clear with a gold pearl), Orgasm (peachy pink with a gold shimmer), Cape Town (metallic gold with a pink shimmer), Red District (vivid red lacquer), Santo Domingo (mauve pink lacquer), Abruzzo (metallic rose gold), Mississippi (dark black cherry)
