Nars Powermatte Long-Lasting Lipsticks Review + Swatches

Nars Powermatte Long-Lasting Lipstick arm swatches

 

Looking for high-impact long-lasting lipsticks? You will find your answer in Nars’ Powermatte Long-Lasting Lipsticks which come in different shades. The lipsticks are somewhat similar in terms of pigment and texture to the Nars Powermatte Lip Pigment (reviewed HERE), but in a bulleted lipstick form. The Nars Air Matte Liquid Lipstick (remember?, seen HERE) is a softer version of the two lipsticks mentioned.

 

The Nars Powermatte Lipsticks are probably one of most reliable long-wearing lipsticks I have ever tried. The lipsticks are transfer-resistant, matte in texture, and extremely rich in pigment. There is comfort upon wearing the lipsticks, but I would not call it to be very comfortable as the lipsticks tend to dry on the lips after a while. Lasting power of these lipsticks is more than four hours, and the lipsticks stain glasses, skin, or any surfaces. A proof that the lipsticks are indeed extremely long-wearing.

There is no discernible scent on the lipsticks, and there is no paraben, formaldehyde, phthalates, retinol, or even any harsh ingredients. The lipsticks are basically vegan.

 

Application is very easy because the lipsticks glide on the lips easily and the feel is quite light. The matte texture can emphasize liplines, therefore, I suggest that you apply a bit of balm on the lips before applying the lipsticks.

The lipsticks come in twelve beautiful and wearable shades which I highly recommend. The following are the four colors that I like.

 

Nars Powermatte Long-Lasting Lipstick no angel

 

No Angel – soft brown pink

 

American Woman – dusty rose

 

Thunder Kiss – soft mauve

 

Free Bird – peachy coral

These lipsticks are fabulous and are truly worth investing in a few colors because of the high-impact vivid pigment that lasts for hours on the lips. All shades are beautiful and can fit any skintone. So, go ahead and give them a try.

5 Coats to Try this Winter 2023

Hello all you gorgeous angels! Winter is here and cold is staring at us in the face. How do you beat the windchill down while still looking certified fab? Worry not, here are my top picks to combat the cold and gloominess — by adding some colors, comfort, and affordability on the side (wink!).

 

top winter coat 2023

 

  1. Banana Republic Factory Windowpane Cocoon Coat – Windowpane coats are fashionable this season, and this Banana Republic Factory cocoon coat is a must-have for any fashionista. I love the subtle windowpane style of it, and it works for Spring, Winter, and even Fall season.
  2. Sanctuary Cocoon Organic Teddy Coat – Who knows a simple white short-sleeve teddy coat can look so fab and elegant! Sure it looks clinical, but it is a gorgeous-clinical coat for the fashion-forward ladies in mind.
  3. Banana Republic Factory Short Hooded Puffer Jacket – Something about this cropped puffer jacket screams so Tiktok-glam to me. So spunky and edgy. Fitting for the young at hearts! (P.S. This coat is currently on heavy sale at BR Factory. Buy now!)
  4. Banana Republic Factory Faux Fur Coat – You will not be able to resist the softness and elegance of this coat. No wonder this is always sold out at Banana’s. This coat can make you feel like you are in the flapper generation.
  5. Ugg Gertrude Long Teddy Coat – This coat can beat the windchill down. I repeat — this coat can beat the windchill down. I love this so much even though this coat is on the heavy side. This is so worth the splurge, and this coat comes in different colors! Thanks UGG.
