Love at First Kiss- Nars Matte Lip Pencils

In this first part of my Nars miniseries, I would like to introduce you to my current lip obsession:

Nars Matte Lip Pencils:
These chubby pencils are a lip liner and lipstick in one, effectively outlining and filling my lips without the hassle of multiple items. They apply super smooth and feel buttery on the lips, thanks to the emollients and Vitamin E they are enriched with. These are full coverage and matte, and can be work alone or with a shimmering gloss on top to sparkle it up.

Lasting power on application is phenomenal as I put these on in the morning with a little gloss on top, and still see the color some 12 hours later.

I have always been a fan of mattes, and these have truly captured my heart with their superior quality and ability to last all day.

I won't bore you with any more details though, here are some pics to drool over.
My current collection: Red Square (warm red), Cruella (neutral red), Bettina (pinkish beige), Cafe Con Leche (caramel with gold flecks), Roman Holiday (cool pastel pink), & Damned (deep berry)

Close up of Red Square, notice the tip is perfect for both lining and filling. It is about the width of my pinky.

Lip swatches: Apologies in advance for the quality of some of the lip swatches, sometimes the camera just doesn't want to behave!

Have any of you tried the lip pencils, I would love to hear if you are loving them as much as I am!

Sex Machine is my favorite! It's such a beautiful color. I had to stalk Sephora for a month before they stocked it.

I also have Bettina, Walkyrie, Dragon Girl, Forbidden Red, Cruella, and Damned. I love these pencils!

Jacqueline- Bettina is a beautiful neutral. The gloss you put on top can really play up either the pink or the beige. Bettina is also my cousin's name (who lives in NY too) Maybe we know the same bettina? Haha

Anna- Bettina is an awesome color. I tried sex machine, but it hardly showed up on my lips unfortunately. Let me know how it works out for you if you get it :-D

Amina- try one! You won't regret it.

Saadeh- thanks so much doll! Be sure to stop by daily as I have lots of awesome posts coming up!

Faith, thats quite a collection. Glad someone else is feeling the love for these awesome pencils!

Krasey Beauty said...

Melily, thanks so much! These pencils are awesome!

Sandra, they last all day on me. Literally about 12 hours! I highly recommend trying one!

Haha! My Bettina is 18. Is it still the same Bettina?

Krasey Beauty said...

Haha, nope. My cousin is in her late 20's ;)
