|NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils|
NARS make the best reds!
If its a red lipstick you're going for whether it's a bright red, dark red, pinky red, orange red or just a true red, NARS has you covered. They make the best long-lasting matte lipsticks in the form of a convenient pencil shaped applicator that gives you precise application for on the go. They have good coverage, feel very lightweight on the lips and are long-lasting to wear. Here are my top five NARS velvet matte lipsticks to suit any red craving!
|NARS Cruella Velvet Matte Lip Pencil|
NARS Cruella Velvet Matte Lip Pencil is a true red. An equal mix of blue tones and orange tones. If a classic pin up Marylin Monroe-esque look is what you're going for, grab this one.
|NARS Damned Velvet Matte Lip Pencil|
NARS Damned Velvet Matte Lip Pencil is a dark vampy pinkish red lipstick. This goes well on all skin tones. The pink hue keeps it from looking gothy... the effect is similar to the gorgeous MAC Rebel Lipstick.
|NARS Dolce Vita Velvet Matte Lip Pencil|
NARS Dolce Vita Velvet Matte Lip Pencil is a light brown red. This is actually one of my favourites as it is suitable for every day wear (ie. mostly work).
|NARS Dragon Girl Velvet Matte Lip Pencil|
NARS Dragon Girl Velvet Matte Lip Pencil is a vibrant blue-based pinky red. It brightens up the complexion and makes your teeth look whiter too!
|NARS Red Square Velvet Matte Lip Pencil|
NARS Red Square Velvet Matte Lip Pencil. This is a bright orange red colour that's perfect for summer and for those with yellow undertones. Love!

So there you have it. While there are not many down sides to this line up from NARS, I must mention that these have to be sharpened with a pencil sharpener - sold separately. In doing so, you also risk losing product if you're not careful. Sometimes the cap is also an issue as it comes off easily; I would suggest carrying it around in its box to prevent the cap coming off and soiling your bag. Other than these issues, the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils are fantastic!
