However I decided to just order this and give it ago, glad I did take the plunge as this lip pencil is amazing, I was very wrong about all the worries I had before buying.
I love how easy this is to apply its also very rich also enriched with vitamin E, the application of a lipstick combined with the convenience of a lip pencil/jumbo crayon.
This lip pencil is very pigmented and velvety matte finish, very long lasting and non drying formula with a creamy texture.
With a combination of unique silicones ensure long lasting colour for hours, can be used as an all over colour or with another lip product.
The Nars Velvet Matte lip pencil is an Allure Best of Beauty Award Winner and I can see why, the lip pencil retails at £19 2.4g Click Here, the Nars website describes it as a cult classic.
The packaging is sleek black crayon with a red bottom classic Nars packaging that I love, the lip pencil came in the black cardboard box like all Nars products do.
The bottom of the lip pencil is the colour of the product which I like, making it easy to identify the colour if you had a few of them, the pencil had a black cap to protect the lip pencil.
The shade is described as scarlet red the description is perfect, its a deep but intense blue based scarlet red, no shimmer or gloss yet not dull looking. The texture is light and smooth non drying and very comfortable and easy to apply to lips, the pigmentation is incredible you only need to swatch once to see this.
The lasting power is amazing easily lasted up to 6/7 hours with eating and drinking involved, it did leave a stain on my lips and after a while a little patchy but this was towards the end of the day without re-applying.
After trying my first Nars lip pencil I now can’t wait to try more shades, they all look lovely maybe next time go for a less bold shade.
