Nars celebrates 25 years and there is a new lineup of lipstick in matte, satin, and sheer finishes. The formula of the lipsticks is new that delivers instant colour vibrancy and conditions lips for a hydrated feel. There is a collection of 72 shades including nudes, bolds, and bright shades.
Inspired by the revolutionary vision of Francois Nars, the entire iconic lipstick line of Nars is revamped and 72 shades with three different finishes have launched by the brand. The 12 original lipsticks by the brand are packaged in red and white while the rest 60 shades are package in signature matte black and white.
The new formula contains a blend of Moringa and Passion Fruit Seed Oils which feel lightweight and comfortable on the lips and enhances colour vibrancy while hydrating at the same time.
The lipsticks have medium to full coverage and easily buildable. The formula of all the finishes is nice, comfortable, and consistent. The matte is not drying but has a soft, semi-matte lightweight feel to it. The sheer formula has a sheer glossy finish while the satin is creamy and more like a classic lipstick with a subtle sheen. The lasting power of the lipstick is pretty nice.
Below is a description in a few words for the three formulas:
- Sheer: subtle, sheer colour that shines
- Satin: creamy, rich colour
- Matte: intense colour with a velvety finish
