NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil – Roman Holiday

by Bionic Beauty on 13.Aug.2008 · 2 comments

Released as part of NARS’ Summer 2008 collection, this lip pencil is a pretty pastel pink “Roman Holiday” (sells for $24). I love the chunky pencil and it goes on so smoothly if you weren’t looking you would certainly think this was a lipstick and not a pencil. There’s no pulling or tugging. The color didn’t bleed or feather and it’s so comfy to wear, and it lasted for hours. The formula contains added Vitamin E so you’re actually moisturizing your lips while coloring them (bonus!).

Nars Exotica Summer 2008 Collection - Velvet Matt Lip Pencil

While the pink is not my favorite color, I use it quite frequently for layering over top other lipsticks (helps lock the color on my lips) and underneath lip glosses to add depth. The stick itself is going to last me many seasons- I haven’t even put a dent in this pencil yet!!

Another thing to note- this pencil travels well in your purse since it won’t leak (always a plus in my book). Overall, it’s a very handy product to stash in your bag (beach bag, travel bag, whatever) and the color is great for those with light skin. If you have darker skin or want more color, check out one of the other 16 colors (may I recommend the gorgeous Dolce Vite? It’s beeeeautiful!)

Thanks for sharing this review! I am definitely going to try this pencil. I just love Nars. I am addicted. I like the Dolce Vita also. Going to Sephora on Friday to check it out!
Thanks again!

This sounds absolutely beautimous. I love lip liners like this because they increase your lip color’s staying power and keep the color in bounds. Thanks BB!
