These NARS Powermatte lipsticks are turning heads, and now we know why…

NARS has added another lipstick baby to its epic lipstick family — the NARS Powermatte lipstick — and frankly, the name seems to have a lot to live up to. NARS has made a name for itself via its iconic Orgasm collection which included a powder blush that still has us all in ropes to this day, plus other formulas of blusher, and other essentials like lip balms, highlighters and body oils.

Now, according to TikTok, this launch has all the potential to join the Orgasm collection and make it to the NARS hero product catalogue. The Powermatte lipsticks come in the form of 15 shades that cover a range of red and nude hues, with high colour payoff and all-day comfort.

The formula also promises to be featherweight but long-lasting, and transfer-resistant with ten hours of staying power. Sounds dreamy so far? Wait until you see the packaging — so elegant and compact perfect for the girls on the go.

In true GLAMOUR form, we decided to put five different shades of the Powematte lipstick to the test, and here are our truest and most honest thoughts.

Shade: Too Hot To Handle

The pigment on these lipsticks is honestly, insane. One swipe gives lips a bold streak of beautiful colour. The little bullet makes it easy and accurate to apply, although you get a few seconds to neaten up any stray edges before it sets and stays put. I’ve been leaning much more towards glosses over the summer, but these mattes are a total mood.

They’re velvety soft but still lightweight and very comfortable to wear. The shade I chose (Too Hot To Handle) is a really pretty warm red that’s perfect for autumn, but on low-key days, rather than a full statement lip, I like to pat it in and blur it out for a gorgeous just-kissed tint.
