NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Famous Red is what I would describe as a a vibrant pinkish coral kissed red that is perfect for the holiday season. The velvety texture is smooth and creamy, and it glides across the lips effortlessly and deposits color evenly. It is very long-wearing, and it neither migrates nor does it feather. I find many matte lipsticks and crayons quite drying, but do not find that this one dries and chaps my lips. If you have particularly dry lips, you might want to use a matte lip balm as a base. I love that this chubby pencil can either be used as a liner, or all over the lips. It does not twist up, and therefore it requires an appropriately sized sharpener.
A lip product that gives you the convenience of a pencil with the application of a lipstick in a jumbo-size crayon design.
It instantly coats your lips with rich pigment, imparting a velvet matte finish for seamless color. Its long-lasting yet nondrying formula is enriched with special emollients for a creamy texture, while a combination of unique silicones ensures pristine color for hours. Use this pencil for lining, as an allover lip color or pair it with another lip product.

Sex Machine and I were good friends for a long time. I had one in my purse and one on my vanity because I liked it so much.ReplyDelete
Sex Machine is such a great shade! That's such a perfect shade for your complexion, Marcia!Delete
I bought Dragon Girl a couple of years ago, but sadly it is way too drying for me dry lips. I should have returned it, but going to Barney’s in Boston was a schlep, so I gaze at it longingly every now and thenReplyDelete
Have you tried it over a lip balm (a more matte lip balm so that it doesn't fundamentally alter the finish of the pencil)?Delete
You have me at pinkish coral kissed red! NARS Dolce Vita is a staple for me.ReplyDelete
This would be such a pretty shade on you too, Cindy!Delete
Train Bleu, Cruella, Dragon Girl, Endangered Red and Promiscuous are all shades I would wear!ReplyDelete
All of those shades are gorgeous, and each one of them would be absolutely stunning on you, Courtney!Delete
I love the NARS lip pencils and don't have this shade which is funny since red is my go to shade these days. Looks like I'll have to pick it up...ReplyDelete
They are really nice. If red is your go-to shade, then this is definitely worth checking out!Delete
