Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella



Say hello to my new lipstick best friend, the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella. This shade has been on every bloggers lips, except mine, and it's a shade I've been dying to try. This deep red is very different from my trademark nude lips but ever since this popped through my letterbox, I've not been able to take it off. After searching high and low and it's been sold out everywhere, I finally spotted it on ASOS and next thing I knew, it was delivered and my love affair started. I'm so impressed with this lip pencil, the colour is so rich and pigmented and lasts all day. I applied this on a test run on Saturday before an intense and hot cleaning session and 3 hours later, it hadn't budged. When I wear this, I choose a very simple make up look, opting for a light dusting of blush, lashings of mascara and a light base and let the red lip stand out. This shade suits my pale skin tone beautifully and I've certainly got my eye on more of Nars' red lip offerings such as Red Square, and for a peachy pink offering, I've purchased the shade Bolero which is on its way to me. My lipstick days seem to be over for now and the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencils have a firm place in my make up stash.

    wish you'd never mentioned they stock it on asos, its going to be 10x harder to convince myself I don't need it when I'd get student discount too!

  11. Such a classic and glamorous red! NARS can do little wrong in my book. Bolero has been on my wishlist for ages as well :)

  15. Aaaagh I've been lusting after this for so long! I'm desperate to try the NARS pencils. I bought the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Standout and Striking and they have a similar crayon-like concept but the staying power really isn't too great!X
