Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil - Mysterious Red

Red lips are THE statement lip. It's a classic, from Marilyn Monroe to Gwen Stefani, the red lip is a staple of any woman's make up bag. Whether you save the rouge for Christmas, a night out or wear a  red lip daily, the Nars matte lip pencil is the perfect go-to choice.
Firstly the formula of these pencils are perfection! If you have MAC Russian Red but it dries your lips, this is your perfect replacement. A beautiful deep-blue red, this Nars colour was limited edition (beauty blogger faux pas!) I am also after Red Square, which  is a orange-red as well as Cruella which is a far darker red.

The Nars velvet matte lip has staying power! I eat a meal,have a kiss and dance away long into the night... and it's still there. It's almost a stain but, NON-DRYING,making it the holy grail for a matte lip. A matte lip is not worth doing if your lips look cracked and dried out after an hour of wear. I prime my lips before I wear any bold lip by applying a waxy balm whilst doing my face make up, I like the Kiehls balm as well as Lush's Lip Service. If you can still find this colour I would highly recommend it as its beautiful. Lip liner be gone. As this is a pencil you can sharpen it making it the perfect replacement for a liner, it's easy to apply the perfect pout in seconds.                                                  

I don't have one bad word to say about this product, and would recommend it to anyone looking for the perfect red matte lip. Red Square is on my wish list still, so I will have to report back on that one!

Looking for the perfect matte formula...HELLO NARS.
