Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl






When it comes to bold lips I can be a bit of a wimp! I always fear that I can't pull it off, so I don't generally stray too far from my nude lipstick safety blanket. However, I decided to be brave and dip my toe in the red lipstick pool for a change and I purchased Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in the shade Dragon Girl. I may have also been swayed by the fact that this is Taylor Swift's red lip shade of choice and it looks damn amazing on her!

As I don't often wear red lips, on the times that I actually do I'd rather go bold or not at all and Dragon Girl is as bold as they get! The colour is a beautiful, poppy red, that's so vibrant it almost has a slight fuchsia undertone to it. I love it.

Like the name would suggest the formula is matte but it applies so smoothly and without dragging on the lips at all. The pigmentation is brilliant that one or two swipes of it is enough! It's really comfortable to wear and doesn't settle into fine lines or make them feel or look dry at all, which is amazing for a matte lip product. It lasted forever on the lips and even stayed near perfect through eating and drinking!

I think this little one is a perfect colour for the festive season and I'm super impressed with the formula. I will definitely look into getting some more, though at £18 each I may be saving up my pennies for a while!

Do you have any Nars Lip Pencils? What are you favourite red lip products?

xoxo

  11. I've only got the NARS lip pencil in Cruella, but I don't see myself wanting any other product for a bold lip now. I wore it on a night out and by 3am my lips were still absolutely perfect, without even a smudge! This shade looks gorgeous and could well be my next purchase :)

  17. I have a NARS lip pencil (in a nude shade though) and I love the formula and finish. This shade looks absolutely stunning on you. It's bright but the colour brightens up your complexion! Love your hair too, they look really healthy!
