A breakthrough concentrate of NARS' most powerful matte yet. Liquefied pigment with a zero-gravity feel, introduces infinite matte color saturation with ultra-flexible long-wear. Dries down to lock in formula for a smudge-resistant, carefree wear while its custom doe-foot applicator provides effortless precision in one swipe. Available in matte empowered shades.

About the formula:
  • Fluid Pigment Complex provides lightweight, flexible color that moves with lips and feels comfortable
  • Smooth liquid texture glides on with ease to give fully saturated opaque coverage
  • Long-wear formula provides lasting, smudge-resistant wear

See NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment shades on.

For the most intense color, apply to clean bare lips. For more definition use applicator to line lips, then fill in with remaining color. Powermatte Lip Pigment is best removed with a gentle oil-free eye makeup remover.

Artist tips:

Pair with Nars Precision Lip Liner for added definition.
  • If lining lips before applying Powermatte use a complementary shade for a line that helps guide the application and provide the most natural definition.
  • If lining lips after applying Powermatte use a deeper or contrasting shade to change the effect of the Powermatte shade. This will create more shape and structure for the lip color.

Precautions: Shake well before use and open upright to avoid product spillage. Product may stain. Please make sure the cap is securely closed when product is not in use.

    Used it for a wedding recently, as a bridesmaid, and it lasted me and another girls all day. Put on once at 1:30 and it lasted until the next morning! Used make up remover to get it off completely!

        This stuff has some serious staying power. Like you may have to scrub to get it all off. Pretty colours and they're song titles.

        BEST LIP EVER

        By J9

        from Santa Cruz

        Comments about NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment:

        I have sooooo many high-end lipsticks and liquid lips but nothing compares to this. I have dry lips and this isn't drying at all. You can eat and drink with it on and it still looks flawless. I can wear this for over 12 hours and know I never have to check it in the mirror or worry about reapplying. I have this in 2 colors and I highly recommend the red tones if you're looking for a red lip that won't bleed and is low maintenance

            Comments about NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment:

            This matte lipstick is the BEST! I have thin lips and most matte lipsticks make them look dry and almost raisin-like, which is not cute. This lipstick goes on super easily, however you do have to be VERY careful as it is not at all forgiving. Not one you can put on in the car. The formula is super thin and once it dries down it's like it's not even there. As long as I give it plenty of time to dry down, it doesn't transfer for me. So to test this out I wore it before going to buffalo wild wings, I ate 6 saucy wings and it was still there after I ate! Sold! I also find it doesn't dry my lips out. I have fair skin and the shade Walk This Way is like the perfect pink! Very similar to urban decay vice lipstick in naked. I also love that all the shades are song titles! I can't wait to buy a few more shades!

            The formula of this product is great, it is so lightweight that you can barely feel anything on your lips. I did have some problems with the color bleeding, but a good lipliner can help sight that. The only issue is that it is super unforgiving. One wrong move and you're screwed. It stains and is not easy to remove. Overall I do love the look and feel that this product gives

                Our Powermatte Lip Pigment is a great liquid formula that provides long-lasting, full coverage color in a gorgeous matte finish. Once dry, this formula should not come off, however we cannot claim as 100% transfer proof.

                I think two great options for you to try would be American Woman and Walk this Way. Both mimic Dolce Vita with Walk this Way being a bit more pink and American Woman being a bit more mauve. Both are beautiful shades!

                Our Powermatte is the ultimate long wear matte liquid lipstick. Once it sets it will last through the entire day, including when eating and drinking. I would just wait until the product has dried (about 30-60 seconds) and apply your gloss over top. It should not transfer!

            • Q:

              Has anyone compared this to lipsence? I am an avid lipsence person but it can be hard to apply perfectly and you have to apply at least 3 coats. Does this lip wear actually last and stay on through drinking, kissing, smudgeproof, and stay on for 12+ hours?

                Our new Powermatte Lip Pigment is an amazing new liquid lipstick that not only stays on your lips, but also is extremely comfortable. This formula is highly pigmented so just one coat is all you need for beautiful, saturated color. The doe foot applicator has a precision tip which helps to line and fill in your lips perfectly. It will be your new favorite lip product!

            • Q:

              Does the Nars powermatte lip pigment have more staying power when applied alone, with lip liner or lip primer?

                A:

                Powermatte Lip Pigment is a wonderful product all on its own. This liquid lipstick will deliver longwear, saturated color in a comfortable matte formula that will stay on all day long. The precision tip applicator makes it easy to apply even without a liner. For a more dimensional lip, or for even crisper line, you can use a lip liner before or after applying Powermatte. No lip primer is necessary, however I would make sure you lips are exfoliated and hydrated before using.
