I got a tiny, little sample of the NARS Velvet Lip Glide in Bound as a 100 point perk at Sephora and it was love at first swipe. The formula is just SO good.
The color glides on like a gloss, is pigmented like a lipstick, isn’t sticky like a gloss, or dry like a liquid lipstick. I say all that to say this, IT IS AMAZING. This formula may be my top favorite lipstick formula of life and that’s a big deal.
The only draw back is the price. NARS is not cheap and these lippies are no exception. A full size is $26. Ouch. Thankfully, the NARS & Ulta folks put together a set of 6 minis so I could get a good shade variety with dropping major monies. This set was $45, but I had some points and a coupon and was able to get it much cheaper.
There are 2 problems with this set
1) It’s sold out
2) The colors in this set were limited edition and not available in a full size
However, you can buy a set of 2 minis for $16 at Ulta and the shades in those 2 kits are shades that are in this kit. The first set is Californiacation and Staying Alive and the second has Immoral and Burning Love.
