Part 2 of NARS’ Power Matte Lip Pigments ($26; narscosmetics.com). These are the bright pinks, reds and the deep dark black. Formula wise, these were similar to the other lighter shades - thinner consistency, easy application, smooth, feels moisturizing, but dries to a matte finish. I found that with the darker colors, I had to work faster since they stain pretty quickly. Star Woman in particular was just a tad thinner and runny compared to the others, hence bled a little, but once set, it did not move. Paint It Black also needed to be built up for full opacity. That apart, they were all packed with pigment, mostly buildable too and stayed put until I used a heavy duty makeup remover to get them off.
