I love these pencils. They come in an amazing range of shades, ( I recommend Bahama, Sex Machine, Cruella, Dragon Girl, Bettina.... All of them! The finish and color pay off is unlike any other lip pencils I have tried. You can use a little (just line your lips and blend it out) or a lot. Some of them can be a little dry, but they also pair great with glosses. Once applied they last! I only have to touch it up like twice a day.
If you're in of those moods when you don't really want to wear makeup but you have to, then you should wear this. It immediately brightens up your complexion. However, i have to be honest. After about an hour of wearing this, you'll see cracking on your lips. So to prevent this, i usually put a layer of maybelline lip gloss first. Then it's fine. It really is long lasting. Repurchase is a must
I never understood my mother when she used these lip pencils, I just found them big and rough things, but they turned into being some of the best lips products i've ever used. It simply makes my lips look much more bigger and also gives them volume. Recomend itttttt!!!
It's always out of stock in my Sephora- guess I'll have to order online.
I tried Bolero on in my local Sephora. Fell in LOVE ....but they were out of them. Three trips later they still have not received a new batch. I'm obsessed with it, more so than any color I can think of in recent years. So, I'll order online and anticipate the arrival.

I used this a few times when I went into Sephora. I LOVE it. I dont know why I havent bought it yet, maybe because I already have so many lip products Ive purchased which I havent used yet. But I think I will definitely invest in this lip pencil very soon because I love the color pay off, the way it looks and feels, and the smooth application.
BEST MATTE CRAYON LIPSTICK EVER!
I never bought it before, but I always go to Sephora to try it and ever since then I started to really like it. It gives the best matte finish ever and there's amazing colors to choose from, I used Damned because it was one of the darker shades and I feel that the darker shades suit my skin tone and lips better. I use lip pencils, but it could never compare with this. My lips aren't chapped after at all, it feels smooth at all time! Even when you take it off. It was interesting to find out that it's a combination of a lipstick and a lip liner. If you want matte lips, I recommend this! NARS has the best lip products!
love love love.
i absolutely LOVE this lip pencil. it's long lasting, very pigmented, and it just looks amazing on the lips. they have bold colors like cruella (as i'm wearing in the picture) and dragon girl, but also colors for everyday wear. i'm definitely going back to sephora and purchasing more.
I love how smooth it goes on and because its a jumbo crayon it covers lips quickly when I'm in a rush. I use it alone or with gloss over it. Also, great for brides who want that matte yet velvety finish for their special day.
Looking for the perfect matte red I would go for Nars Cruella. In my profile pic that is the color that I'm wearing. I normally don't go for mattes because they tend to dry out my lips but this one actually does the opposite and the application is a piece of cake. Cruella is vibrant and the texture doesn't feel heavy at all. Curious about the other shades but for now I'll use this one up before exploring more shades.
