NARS Mysterious Red Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Review & Swatches


NARS Mysterious Red Velvet Matte Lip Pencil

I absolutely adore these pencils and leave no stone unturned to pick these if they are available. I have shared two formulas here Velvet Matte and Satin. My absolute favorite is velvet matte and the shades I shared in past were WALKYRIE and RED SQUARE, the shade which am sharing today was Limited Edition but now it is part of permanent line MYSTERIOUS RED.

My Experience with NARS Mysterious Red Velvet Matte Lip Pencil

Shade: NARS MYSTERIOUS RED is described as Crimson Red , it is warm toned Bright and Vivid shade of RED it is very flattering shade and I find that there is no need for extra efforts on face once I have this .

Texture and Staying power: The texture is creamy, easy to glide and sits pretty once sets and the finish is velvety matte like the nature of pencil . The pencil is light weight on lips even if you layer it back and forth although that’s not required. The lipstick doesn’t move easily nor settles in fine lines. I get some 5-6 hrs of wear with this and it looks polished and intact even with light munching.

Pigmentation: NARS Mysterious Red is gorgeously pigmented and is opaque in single layer, even if you layer it feels very light weight on lips like I mentioned above.
