Velvet Matte Lip Pencil
Perfect and comfortable to wear
I have this pencil in the color "Never Say Never" - its a beautiful, soft rose violet that I wear to work nearly every day. The color is feminine while still being subtle and appropriate for a very conservative workplace. In general, the pencils are really amazing - even though they're a matte finish product they're not drying at all and they're extremely comfortable to wear. The color is opaque in one swipe and I also noticed that there's very little color transfer from the lips onto glasses or straws etc. As a result, these are really, really long wearing products. All around I think these pencils are some of the best lip products on the market, and I can't wait to pick up a few more!!
I received a sample of new lover and I absolutely love the consistency and the glossy look after application. I will be purchasing other colors. I really want to try out the matte. I hear nothing but great reviews!
Love the color!
It's a beautiful berry shade perfect for the fall/winter season. I love to wear this with a nude eye look to balance the whole look. All together it looks amazing! It comes on very pigmented but you must reapply throughout the day! But do beware before you apply make sure to exfoliate your lips & apply lip balm or else you'll be left with cracking & a smeared mess. Overall still a good buy.
MATTE all the way!
Ok I rarely wear lipstick because I don't like the amount of maintenance that comes with wearing it. The running, it doesn't last long, ugh so annoying. But this lip pencil is definitely a great purchase. Although it was a gift for me, I would still purchase it on my own. The matte part of it is fantastic, I don't really like glossy lip colors unless it's lip gloss. The only thing about this lip pencil is that you have to put a moisturizer on before you apply it because it's a little dry. And another great thing about it is that once you put it on, it lasts all day. If you eat while wearing it you'll just have to retouch it a little bit.
The shades are amazing!
This particular shade tones down every one of my bright colors ...it gives me a hint of depth to my sometimes overpowering lip shades. This is one of NARS best products in my opinion. It glides on and I haven't experienced any cracking or dryness. Definitely a great buy!
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.
