I told myself that this year I wouldn’t be buying anything from the N-Sale, but dang was I lying. As you’ve read before, I’m a lover of the Nars Velvet Lip Glide formula, specifically the shade Bound. Well, I still am! So when I went into Nordstrom for a return, naturally I had to skate down the beauty aisles with my eyes shut. However the new NARS Endless Summer Collection caught my eye. It’s a limited-edition launch exclusively for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this year and I’m here for it.
In the collection there are two liquid lip sets, each of them have four different shades inside. There are two Velvet Lip Glides and two Powermatte Lip Pigments. Between the two formulas, I prefer the Velvet Lip Glide. It offers a medium coverage with a soft velvet finish, meaning that you’ll need to top-up during the day because there is color transfer. I love the formula though, as I can apply it without needing to look in a mirror or worry about having a lip liner if things get out of control. The Powermatte Lip Pigments however are a different story. Expect them to stay there almost all day without budging. They dry down to a matte finish and are quite thin compared to most liquid lipsticks. I gravitated toward the Undressed Liquid Lip Set 1 which has neutral shades. Like I said before, Bound is my absolute favorite Velvet Lip Glide, so I opted for the first set rather than second, because I have a few Bound glosses lying around.
The Undressed Liquid Lip Set 1 contains:
- Stripped – a pale beige Velvet Lip Glide
- Cozumel – a pinky-beige Velvet Lip Glide
- Antigua – a neutral beige rose Powermatte Lip Pigment
- American Woman – a warm mauve Powermatte Lip Pigment
Overall this is a steal in my book. The prices are fair considering each lip color can be purchased for $26. So that makes my math around $104 for four, but with this set – it’s a whopping $49. If you’ve been wanting more wearable shades or want to dive into NARS, now is a good time to do it! Prices go back to normal in August, so hurry into Nordstrom before it’s too late! And on that note, I might have to go get the Undressed Liquid Lip Set 2.
