Get the Look: NARS Velvet Lip Glide
With its sleek monochrome packing, the all-new Velvet Lip Glide ($45) by NARS is one beauty item we’re lusting after. We also like how the hybrid lippie contains a proprietary ingredient, the Oil Infusion Complex, which allows for smoother application and better colour payoff.
And because we can never have one shade too many (don't you agree?), we’re glad that the Velvet Lip Glide is stocked in twelve delicious hues. From delicate nudes (Stripped, Unlaced, Bound) to dark berries (Unspeakable, Toy, Area), there’s definitely one out there for every chic Narsissist. Here’s a little trivia: the lippies were named after the iconic venues and new attitude that emerged from the sexual revolution of the ‘70s.
