Here is another NARS Velvet lip pencil which I picked recently after lusting for months , am seriously addicted to these , just the sharpening thing makes me think 100 times before buying else I can just go on and on and on and buy backups as well .
Size – 2.4 gm
Price – $ 25 + tax. You can buy it from AMAZON
Shade – RED SQUARE as you can see in pictures is fire engine red – it is hot and its orange based red shade, what not to love about this beauty? It is described is Bright Orange Red and true to its description it is bold and fiery shade of Orange and looks very flattering on warm olive skin tone . I adore this beauty and love to wear on its own but with gloss on top it can look equally flattering. AS opposed to the shade I shared in my last post – this one needs a bit of courage to sport and I know you all have that!
Texture – I adore the soft creamy easy to glide velvety matte texture, it is not absolute matte but surprisingly there is no hint of sheen in it – very light weight on lips. The shade when wears off doesn’t fade unevenly nor does it settles in fine lines.
Pigmentation – It layers opaque in single swipe like all velvet matte pencils do, I have 4 so I can pretty much understand – they are consistent overall, this is what I feel.
Staying power – I get 6 + hrs of wear with this shade provided am not eating too much of oily food, else also it looks pretty good with marginal fading which looks decent.
What I like about NARS Velvet Lip Pencil Red Square:
- The light weight creamy texture which glides so easily provided my lip is conditioned.
- The velvety matte texture which looks so polished.
- The shade is so gorgeous – little tricky but if you love bright this one is not to be ignored.
- The fact that it stays for hrs but doesn’t make my lips feels dry.
What I don’t like about NARS Velvet Lip Pencil Red Square:
- It is not twist up and you need to sharpen it which leads to a lot of product wastage.
Ratings – 4.8 / 5 – I highly recommend you to give these a shot blindly and am sure you will be addicted as I am. The colour selection is very limited and basic but still a great product for matte lip lover and if you love orange then this one is for you no doubt.
