Velvet Matte Lip Pencil


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.


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.

Red Hot Cruella

I love this Red pencil, it's a true red that is sexy and deep. It lasts a long time and flatters most skin complexions. The texture is smooth and the application is very pigmented. This has become my go-to red lip color.


This goes with me everywhere now. It's easy to carry and the color is very wearable. If you don't like the matte finish then just put a gloss on top.
The matte finish isn't drying like some matte products can be.
When layered over a lip balm, it gives a nice tint to the lips when used lightly but can also be built for a stronger color.


i purchased 3 pencils: Damned (rich magenta), Belle de Jour (sheer beige) and Dragon Girl (vivid, siren red). each has a creamy texture and feels quite smooth when you rub your lips together. despite these pencils being matte, they are anything but drying...guess the Vitamin E works. as far as staying power goes, these easily lasted 6 hours, even through lunch. i just needed to reapply gloss to add shine.

my only complaint is that the lighter shades tend to show every line, crevice and imperfection in your lips, so it's important that you exfoliate your lips before wearing these in order to minimize that effect.

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils are a great option if you're looking for a lip color with staying power, but without the drying effects that a lot of lip stains have.

i'll definitely be buying more of these :-)

Great For Fall

Red lips are in for Fall and Dolce Vita is perfect for those who don't want a red that's too shocking. It's a full rich color that applies matte and doesn't rub off!! This is one of my newest purchases and I love it! I even reviewed it on my new blog..

I'm wearing this lip pencil in Dolce Vita in my profile picture!

Best Long Wear Matte Lipstick

I got a sample from Sephora and was hooked. Deeply pigmented, and it doesn't rub off when you kiss or drink. It fades slowly and it looks lovely still when it does. A perfect formula and spot on shades. I Love it!!!

Soft and beautiful

I love the idea of these lip pencil/lipstick, first off the color glides on so soft and lines the lip perfectly, eliminating the use of a separate liner which I like. Nars is a very luxurious brand and these meet the mark along with there face products. This color is beautiful a true Sexy sultry red and extremely full of moisture compared to my beloved Mac mattes (:

Easy to use

I really enjoyed using this lip pencil. It was very easy to apply on the lips because the formula is very creamy and pigmentation is amazing! I think the colour would go well with many skin tones because is it not too blue-toned nor orange-toned. The formula of the lip pencil also lasts long, especially after blotting your lips. Would purchase some more shades in the future!
