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!
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!
