NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl & Cruella has made a famous matte lipstick in pencil format.

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil is one of the first lipstick pencils to be found in the store. Now they are everywhere, but then they surprised with their format not only ordinary people, but also makeup artists. Not everyone understood the meaning of a thick lead lip liner, which is actually lipstick. I feel like I’ve already confused you with the introduction, so I’ll just say that this is a lipstick pencil.

You should not be intimidated by this format, because it has more pluses than minuses. But first things first…

Description NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil

Matt lipstick

This pure and noble shade comes in one of our most practical packaging – a pencil!

I sharpen it with the Nars sharpener, which I bought with the pencils. Its price is 200 rubles. – seemed attractive to me.


General impression

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil is a must have for every woman because you don’t have to wear it out. And that’s why:

  • the first layer completely covers the lip color and does not require reapplication
  • lipstick does not flow into the folds of the lips
  • does not emphasize peeling
  • withstands a light snack and a few glasses of water
  • does not require lip liner


  • treacherously leaves prints on glasses
  • after it fades, the color remains along the contour of the lips
  • dry lips

But all this is incomparable with the fact that lipstick is not capricious “in the sock”! You do not have to constantly look in the mirror, worry that it has “moved out” or smeared because its durability makes you forget about the problems that are inherent in classic lipsticks.

Description of shades and swatch

In terms of color and comparison, NARS has two classic reds that I absolutely love: Dragon Girl and Cruella.

They are very different in tone from each other and if “Cruella” (the first photo above) is still wearable in the daytime, then I attributed Dragon Girl to the evening version.
