I am obsessed with these. I get them in every color but Cruella is my favorite. It is a cool red. I think that it has the right brightness and depth to look good on all skin tones. Plus you can layer. I have never worn it without getting complements!
I use an eyeshadow primer to keep the color on all day even through lunch. It is matte so you need to moisturize and exfoliate before wearing.
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!
I am very pleased
"Cruella" is described as "Scarlet Red" and I love my reds! I got this in Sephora's birthday gift this year. Compared to the iconic "Ruby Woo" from MAC Cosmetics, this is slightly more vivid, as to me it appears to have a very subtle orange hint. Personally, I prefer my reds to be a bit deeper! But after wearing it a few times I have really started to LOVE it. It’s red, it’s bright and it’s playful! The finish is definitely matte but it’s easy-to-apply and feels weightless on the lips. It has not bleed or creased on me and it definitely does not make me conscious about wearing a red lipstick. I have had at least 9-10 hours of wear that survived a very cumbersome Indian Chai tea drink in a moving car. It faded after I ate a big homemade chicken roll but it did leave a beautiful stain. It does feel a little drying after 6-7 hrs of wear. But overall, I am very pleased.
Just Like Velvet
They got the name of this product right! This pencil wears like Velvet. It's so luxurious feeling. Just the name and texture alone makes you feel sexier the moment you put it on. Wears like iron and feels comfortable at the same time.
The only thing I'm a little iffy on is the smell. Not really sure what's up with that and I can't really explain it, but still a great product never-the-less.
Makes my lips look ah- mazing
Ok first off, I honestly love mattes, so I go this as a birthday present from sephora and I definitely love it, it's super smooth and vivid. It smells super delicious and it makes my lips look super nice, even without lip liner which is a plus, the only bad thing is it kinda smears a bit, but you learn to not mess with it after a while
