I have been meaning to try the NARS Matte Lip Pencils for ages but I always forget to go to a NARS counter to try on the colours when I am out shopping. I finally ended up giving in and buying both the Velvet Matte Lip Pencil and Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil online hoping that the colours I chose would look ok on me (and luckily they do).
I have heard great things about the Dragon Girl shade of the Velvet Matte Lip Pencil but after looking online I decided to opt for Cruella instead as it seemed more like a brick red which I find suits me more when I wear red lipstick. I also decided to buy the Velvet Gloss Pencil in More mainly because I was curious how a gloss lip pencil actually works and because I have a thing for nude lips are they are an easy everyday option.
NARS Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella – £17.50
NARS Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil in More – £17.50
