I have quite a few NARS lip pencils, but my obsession with these pencils is never gonna end! Recently, NARS came out with 10 new shades and I picked up five of them. The one that I will be reviewing today is “Famous Red.”
The application of a lipstick combined with the convenience of a pencil in a jumbo crayon design. Lips are instantly saturated with rich pigments and a velvety matte finish. The long lasting, non-drying formula is enriched with emollients for a creamy texture, while a combination of unique silicones ensures long-lasting, seamless color for hours. Use for lining, all-over lip color, or pairing with another lip product. Rich, vivid shades. Enriched with Vitamin E. Convenient, easy application. Works best with NARS Pencil Sharpener. Other sharpeners may be harmful or damaging.
My Experience with NARS Famous Red Velvet Matte Lip Pencil:
NARS velvet matte lip pencil comes housed in a matte black chubby stick packaging. It is not retractable, so you have to sharpen it whenever it?s required. The end of the pencil is colour coded to the shade of the lip pencil. The name of the brand and the shade details are printed in white around the pencil.
NARS lip pencil formula is one of my favourite lip products. It comes in a jumbo pencil packaging which covers a large area in a single swipe and takes less time to cover the entire lips unlike regular lip pencils.
“Famous Red” is a pink-coral red color which is perfect for this spring-summer season. This color will look good on all skin tones. There are several red shades in this “velvet matte lip pencil” range, but this is the perfect summery red color. Not only the formula is stunning but the staying power is also great. I get full 5 to 6 hours of wear time without any drinking or eating. It does not fade away when you eat or drink, but it leaves a stain behind so your lips won?t look flat even when the color has worn off a little bit.
