NARS summer 2018 makeup includes a range of new lip lacquers/gloss – Full Vinyl Lip Lacquers.  Available in 10 shades, these lip lacquers feature intense color and a high-shine finish.  The applicator has a unique design, with one side to be used for placing the color and the other helps to apply the color evenly.  There are a couple of shimmery colors in the range and some saturated glossy finishes without any glitter in them.  The shade range does a good job of covering most makeup styles, with colors ranging from pale champagne to vampy edgy black, and some easy-to-wear neutrals.  Scroll on for swatches.

The new NARS Full Vinyl Lip Lacquers are intensely saturated, and while the finish is like a lipgloss, the color goes on quite intense.  The formula feels like a thick lipgloss and sticky/tacky, which would ensure a longer staying power – and a change from the matte finishes that have been the norm for a while now.  They also feel quite moisturizing.  All that makes this perfect for someone like me, who prefers the more lip-friendly formula of lipglosses, but I am not sure how transfer-resistant these would be or how well they would hold up through a normal day (which in my case would definitely involve food).  The applicator design, which I read is supposed to help with even application, seemed good but nothing I could discern as being specially helpful.  I only used it for swatching, though.  Even when I apply makeup (at home – I never ever try on testers!!), I generally use a lip brush to apply glosses, partly because of ease of application but also because it just feels cleaner.  The colors and the formula do not seem all that very unique, either, and I am sure that something similar can be found in a lot of other brands too.  That said, NARS is one of my favorite brands, and if I was in the market for a pigmented lipgloss, I would probably pick one of these – Valencia, maybe.
