Halo darlings. I’ve got a quick review to share, and it’s all about the lip product I mentioned during my previous posts. I was so excited when I got my hands on the Nars Soft Matte Tinted Lip Balm. It looks like the perfect matte lip balm for any occasion, especially for Zooming :D. Well, guess what? I’m happy to report that it is indeed an amazing product that checks all the boxes. Hydrating? Yes. Comfortable? Oh yes. Pigmented? Yes, yes. Long-wearing? Totally, yes.
The Nars Soft Matte Lip Balm is a limited-edition lip product from Nars. It comes with the signature Nars-style packaging, but it has a gray metallic tone. At a glance, the shades tend to be on the nude spectrum, or should I say, in varying intensities of the nude tone (excusez moi, this is the academic side of me talking 😀 lol). I do find the shades to be somewhat sheer, especially the ones that I got. But also, a few of the shades tend to be more opaque as they get deeper/darker.
Unrestricted – Pink nude. This is a beautiful mix of sheer pink and sheer nude. I like this a lot, and the pigment stays on for more than four hours.
Brief Encounter – Neutral Nude. This just gives me enough color on the lips. Perhaps a little too nude for me. But the effect just gives that enough warmth that slightly contrasts my skintone.
Whip Lash – Rusty Nude. I didn’t expect how dramatic this shade could get. It’s like a brownish brick red. It’s a beautiful shade for medium skintone and perfect for Fall.
The Nars Soft Matte Lip Balm is like Glossier’s Generation G lipstick (swatched HERE) but with more moisture. It is indeed comfortable, matte, lightweight, long-wearing and will give you that diffused and blurred lip texture effect. It seems like it is the perfect formula for the next generation of comfortable lip products. I hope this product will be made permanent by Nars soon.
What d’ya think of this newness from Nars?
