NARS Lip Cover Review & Swatches

NARS Lip Cover1

NARS Lip Cover ($28) is a new, limited edition liquid lipstick that will be available in three shade selections with the NARS Summer 2016 Collection. I’m loving Lip Cover for the simple fact they aren’t a rerun of the long wearing matte liquid lipsticks we are seeing every brand releasing as of late for the past several months. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I simply don’t need nor want my lipstick to wear for 12 hours straight.

I like a lipstick that I can easily touch up throughout the day and my drier lips like a formula that isn’t bulletproof matte for 12 straight hours so NARS Lip Cover are kinda my ideal liquid lipstick formula.

NARS Lip Cover

NARS Lip Cover are hopefully a prelude of a launch to come. As of now they are available for a limited time which saddens me as I really like this formula so hopefully as we head into Fall 2016, NARS might do a fuller launch of these with more shades and perhaps make them permanent as I’d totally buy more especially one in an Orgasm-like shade or a Dolce Vita one!

These are not transfer-free resistant and they never fully set but I experienced no issues with the product feathering or migrating around my drier lips however, I did have problems with color transferring to my tea cup. I’m fine with that though! So long as the color isn’t taking a road trip around my face I can deal with a little lipstick on my cup.

NARS Members Only Lip Cover

NARS Lip Cover swatches

I find the formula applies very easily with a super soft, smooth, slightly velvety consistency on my lips. It hugs my lips in very comfortable color that has a tiny hint of shine at first application which becomes more and more matte through the wear. I only tried one shade, Members Only, and it wore for a solid five hours and left behind a very slight stain after wearing away. The color is stunning with incredible pigmentation on a single pass. This is a rich, crimson red that’s quite outstanding and will look even better should you like to add a little clear gloss on top. For sensitive users, I did not notice a fragrance or a flavor.

NARS Lip Cover FOTD

For those of who don’t like nor desire a long lasting liquid lipstick fromula I think you’ll get on rather famously with NARS Lip Cover. These are a super comfortable formula to wear that doesn’t dry lips out and provides gorgeous, bold color pay off. I’m looking forward to purchasing the other two shades when NARS Summer 2016 launches this week online at narscosmetics.com (April 15th).

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Thank you for the review. I am very excited to try the “nude” shades.

    By the way, I couldn’t stop laughing after I read: “So long as the color isn’t taking a road trip around my face I can deal with a little lipstick on my cup.”
