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.
