Another NARS release, which was a surprise to me as I didn’t see any news of its release, is the Wanted Velvet Lip Glide Set. I like a lot of NARS lip products, most especially the Velvet Lip Glide. I knew I had to have this set (with Becca from porepatrol) the moment I saw this in store. 🙂
The Velvet Lip Glide is one of the popular and most positively rated among NARS’ lip products. I wanted a few shades since its initial release but put off buying until a couple of 4-pc Powermatte and Velvet Lip Glide sets released sometime this year. That set was such a steal!
Anyway, that was when I fell in love with the Velvet Lip Glide. 🙂
NARS Wanted Velvet Lip Glide Set
The NARS Wanted Velvet Lip Glide Set includes 6 variety of nude shades. Four among them are limited edition–District, Lure, Vault, and Spike. All shades are wearable; good for day or office looks. But, of course, these can be worn any time, any occasion.
The Velvet Lip Glides (not limited to these particular shades) have satin to semi-matte finishes that feels comfy on the lips. They don’t bleed or feather and are not sticky. These aren’t transfer-proof, so they could come off easily during a meal. None of the shades in the set leave a stain, especially that they’re nude shades.
Below are swatches of each shade. The shades I kept are Lure that is a terracotta, Vault that is a deep nude/brown, and Spike that is a mauve berry.
My friend didn’t find the NARS Wanted Velvet Lip Glide Set in Rustan’s Shangri-La. I got our set at Glorietta, which I assume is where it’s only available. The set is around Php2300, which is actually a good deal because a full size is Php1450 already. These may be small, but as somebody who has a huge collection of lip products, I’m unlikely to use up any of these little ones even soon. 😛 That’s another reason I shouldn’t be wishing for a full size of Lure. LOL!
Apart from the set being a good deal so as to own various shades of Velvet Lip Glides or to share with a friend, this can make a good gift for friends this holiday season. That is, if we can still find this in stores locally. 😛
