REVIEW: NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in 2457 Dragon Girl

I can only handle hearing Chelsea (ChelseaWears) talk and swatch NARS velvet matte lip pencils so many times before I cave.

I couldn't bare to gamble the available inventory of Sephora during the VIB sale, so I decided to purchase my most desired shade out of the line when I had the 10% off coupon code (haul post).

My choice:  Dragon Girl.

Classic, neutral red

Velvet matte is the perfect description of this texture.  It's not the traditional drying matte (no drag for colour payoff).

Slight vanilla

Thank goodness for a blogger/youtuber who isn't a marionette of major PR.  I'm cool with blogger/youtubers working with PR, as long as they actually honour their statements about giving honest opinions.  Nothing worse than being flat out lied to.  *ChelseaWears fangirling*
Anyway, I LOVE this velvet matte line of lip pencils.  The pencils make it super easy to define and fill my lips.  I could see myself easily applying it both an inch away from the mirror (we all do it) and on the go in the car.  This lip pencil makes my lips look super smooth and as if there isn't anything laying on top of my lips -- The colour somehow morphs into my lips.

I love this formulation so much that I took advantage of the Sephora VIB 20% sale and picked up it in Dolce Vita and the NARS x Guy Bourdin lip set.

Have you tried any of the NARS lip pencils?

  1. yea i agree w/ you re: honest reviews. there are a few bloggers out there that only ever seem to give super positive reviews and they also so happen to be ones that get a lot of PR productions? correlation? sure..but stilll..

    this color looks SO good. i made my friend try on the one in Cruella and it was stunning on her too.

  2. heehee yea i was deciding between this one and cruella for the longest time... and ended up getting this one cuz i felt like was more pow. and then, i got the lip kit... which contains cruella. first world problem solved. bam.
