So the other day i visited Sephora and saw this NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Duo.I immediately grabbed it & threw it in my shopping bag.I always wanted to try these pencils especially the shade Cruella as its a very popular one.Its a limited edition duo pack and only available in Sephora stores.These jumbo crayon sticks are available in a variety of colors that flatter many complexions.

Packaging: NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Duo packaged in a cardboard box.The pencil itself comes in a sturdy black pencil with a cap.The biggest down part of this pencil is that it does not screw from bottom which means you need to sharpen it to use.
Texture: NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil are rich in pigment and opaque.It provides a creamy matte finish and does not gives a feeling that you have something on your lips, it is so lightweight ,glides on like a charm and it does not dries out the lips too.The lighter shades can be little sheer on lips so need to swipe 2-3 times more.
NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Dolce Vita is a dusty rose nude color.Suitable for wheatish Indian skin tones.A daily on-the-go shade.Dolce Vita may wash out on warmer toned skin.
NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in shade Cruella is a deep dark red color perfectly suitable for those who does not like in the face bright red.As being a dark red it does not stains lips at all.Makes teeth looks whiter 😀
Staying Power: NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils are not transfer proof when freshly applied.I discovered that after 15-20 minutes of application the lipstick becomes non-transferable which surprised me as i didn’t expected it to be transfer proof.
