Velvet Matte Lip Pencil
I really love the feel of these pencils. They're soft and nice and well... velvety. The color payoff is also nice, even though it can come off a little patchy (could just be the color I got). The color is one of my favorites. Kind of a reddish brown. With nothing on top it can be pretty drying. I like to add a little bit of lip balm before, but it can keep it from being completely matte. I plan on buying more of these.
Low maintenance application for high style!
I simply adore Train Bleu. With two swipes, this shade was able to endure 6 hours -- with lunch -- with only minimal fading. The fading was actually more toward the center, so it looked like a nice slight ombre effect. Perfect low maintenance way to look done up. I also love that it's matte, but still moisturizing. Feels like lip balm! Use it as a liner as well!
Love, but a waste of product.
I love this product. It is so handy and easy to carry anywhere and easy to apply. The only downside is that you lose so much product by sharpening it, and you really do have to sharpen it quit often which is annoying. This would be the perfect lip product if it was a twist rather that having to sharpen it constantly.
I really really really love this! It's creamy and pairs wonderfully with my Chapstick and doesn't smudge. However, you don't need to buy this. Basically this product is also made by elf and it is literally the same product. Has the same color payoff and lasting effect! Plus the elf one is only like $2!
Amazing matte formula, amazing color.
This is the perfect "lip but not too overdone lip" color for me, a burnt red-coral that looks gorgeous with just about anything. It looks good matte or with gloss over the top, and the formula is amazing. Super pigmented but it goes on smooth and not dry or difficult to apply at all. One of the best matte formulas out there, and worth every penny.
The Perfect Matte Lip
I am so throughly impressed with this product! I bought it on impulse, wanting to try more Nars products and boy am I glad I got this! It's so pigmented and glides onto my lips so smoothly and soft, it's convenient in the stick, along with the shape being great for shaping lips. I don't need to use a lip brush for precision with this! All that and beautiful matte lips that don't budge for over 10 hours? It's made the Holy-Grail list for me!
beautiful and handy lip pencil!
I love the chubby pencils because they take so much less time to apply! The Roman Holiday shade is the perfect pink for my fair skin with cool undertones, and the finish is lovely, too! The reason I left off one star is that it did dry my lips out a little the first day I wore it (although it has since been fine -- I probably just put on way too much the first day or something). I want to go back and get more shades!
I love all of the colors in the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils but this color stood out to me the most. Wearing dark lips has become a staple in my everyday makeup routine so I immediately fell in love when I saw this color. I love that I don't need to use a separate lip liner because this lip pencil also allows me to line my lips with precision. The color payoff is amazing.
It does last all day but the reason that I did not give it a full 5 stars was because it does start showing signs of wear in the center faster than other matte lipsticks I have tried. I can't wait to buy more colors!
