Beauty | NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Pop Life Review

Today I’m doing a review on the famous Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil.

Having heard and read so much about the Lip Pencils I was sucked into buying one and I ordered the shade Pop Life.  This shade is a gorgeous matte red with a hint of orange, which makes it wearable for the day or evening. I believe this red would suit every skin tone and look great on anyone.

The packing is gorgeous with the classic Nars sleek black design and Nars embellishment on the side. The application of the product is effortless, due to the simple small pencil nib. 

Being able to apply a red lip shade without having to use a lip pencil and lipstick separately is perfect for me as I’m always on the go and love an all-in-one product.

The main negative about this lip pencil is the staying power, the bold red shade faded pretty quickly. This is a massive flaw as I like to know that my product will be long lasting and stay on all day. The colour started to bleed around my lips and emphasize the dry patches on my lips.

Overall for such a high-end product, the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil disappointed me. The colour range is spot on but the staying power just wasn’t there.  I still use this product as I love the shade but it couldn’t handle all day long without some reapplication.
