NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil - Red Square

Hello Lovelies,

Yes another orange/red lipstick. I have gotten slightly obsessed the past few weeks with a bold lip with minimal eye make up. I find it just brightens up my complexion and makes my teeth look so much whiter-which is always a bonus! So the lipstick that kicked off this whole obsession was the Bourjois Velvet Edition liquid lipstick in Hot Pepper which I raved about here. Within days of buying that lipstick I had this beauty from NARS ordered..oops! 

I had never tried any lip products from NARS before this but have only heard good things about their Matte lip pencils so I was excited to try this. A matte lip has been my go-to lately because it is just fuss free. No need to worry about if you have it on your teeth, or in my case your chin (lunchtime..soup..don't judge!) they are much easier to apply and are crazy long-lasting! What I love about this pencil is that it is literally fool-proof. It is quick and easy to apply, it is small and compact so perfect for carrying around if you want an emergency last minute bold lip, and once you have it on that is literally it for the day. It stays around forever. I have put this on before 7am in the morning, done a mornings work, had lunch and went back for the second half of my day without needing to touch up. I am 100% converted to this whole matte bold lip business!

The lip pencil itself feels lovely and creamy when you first apply it and it keeps that almost creamy feeling throughout the day as you wear it. It doesn't dry out your lips and doesn't settle into the lines either. I am so impressed with this offering from NARS I think I'll be going back for seconds...Cruella is next on my hit list! 

The NARS Red Square lip pencil is available online here. Are you a fan of a bold lip? If so what product is your go-to at the moment?


  1. I have a Nars pencil and love it. It's not the matte, however. This looks so pretty, such a stunning color! My only pet peeve with these is that you have to sharpen them. Either way they are great products!!!
