That Red Lippy That Everyone & Their Mother Loves

nars velvet matte lip pencil in dragon girl
There are some products that are universally loved. You never hear a bad word about them and I would class the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencils as one of these beloved products. People seem to really love these and I have to say my curiosity got the better of me. I had to know what these lippys were all about and whether they stood up to the acclaim (spoiler, they do!)

When I went to buy these I hummed and hawed about what shade to get. There is a gorgeous pink shade called Yu that looked right up my street and Cruella, a deep red, also tickled my fancy. In the end, I went for the hue "Dragon Girl". A pinkish red that is really bright, vibrant and perhaps the most famous colour in the range. 

I have to say from the minute I first applied these I knew they were pretty amazing. They are so simple to use. There is no need for a lip liner as the pencil perfectly outlines the lips. And it's so opaque that you only need a few swipes and your done. It wasn't dragging or difficult to apply. It was so dreamy. 

My only hesitation about these was that they are super matte. And to me, matte equals drying. I also have particularly dry lips so I was pleasantly surprised that these weren't that bad. They certainly aren't moisturising but considering the formula is quite chalkey, I found it remarkably comfortable to wear. I pretty much wore it all day and it looked and felt hella good!

Of course, as it's Nars, there is a high-end price tag but I have to say I'd happily pay it. These are honestly just a lovely product and I completely get why so many people sing the praises of them. Now if you'd excuse me, I'm off to look at a million swatches to see what shade I should buy next!

Have you tried these? Or do you have any shade suggestions that I should try out? Let me know below.
