Beauty Must-Have: NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil

I love it when products are multi-tasking and made for an easy application!

These NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils are one of the best lip products I've seen out there. Not only are these lip pencils creamy and long lasting, but they are also matte! It is so hard to find matte lip colors that are moisturizing. Matte lipsticks usually have a drying effect and can make your lips look shriveled and unhealthy.

But that's not all! These little things are multi-tasking, so they can be used as a regular lip pencil for lining lips, or as a filler color for applying over your entire lip. They are pigmented enough so that your application goes on smooth with just a few swipes back and forth and they are almost fool proof so there are no boo boos! They are also compact so you can easily throw them in your purse or clutch! Also works perfectly for weddings! Just throw some gloss over it if you want a more glossy look!

My favorite is definitely 'Cruella', a true red which looks great on any skin tone!

See how we use some of these to make an ombre lip for an upcoming post! If you have any requests for beauty and hair looks, or if you have a question, feel free to email us:
