Nars Dragon Girl Velvet Matte Lip Pencil

I have this is the shade Dragon Girl and it is gorgeous! Despite it's velvety matte finish, Dragon Girl never makes my lips dry and peel. It may not be as moisturizing as the Velvet Gloss line, but the formula of this one is way better than your average matte lipsticks (err.. Mac Ruby Woo). It's very comfortable to wear and lasts decently (4-6 hrs) on the lips. You could get away with a good number of bites and drinks, and still see the color evenly faded on your lips. So f you have plans on going hardcore on partying and needs a reliable lip color, make sure to tuck this in your purse!

This velvet matte lip pencil is definitely a must in any girl's growing lip pencil collection. These aren't just any other lip pencil. They are extremely pigmented and have so many beautiful shades to choose from. They are long wearing and moisturising to the lips, as well. Dolce Vita is my fave!

Subtle and sexy matte lippie

Dolce Vita is the the kind of red I dream of - a dusty hibiscus red that is subtle and sexy. The lipstick has a powdery matte feel to it. It's more of a stain on the first swipe, which you could probably build, but I really love the way the looks don't look overdone and even to an extent, natural. I use a lipbrush because I don't want to ruin the point. It's pricey which is why I don't like to use it often, but it's a joy to bust out on those special days.

Love at first swipe!

I first got this in a sample size, in the shade Cruella. I loved it! the shade is a prefect red. Since I have dry lips, I like how it doesn't make my lips dry even though it is matte. It's super pigmented, one swipe is enough. I'm almost done with the sample size and I am planning to buy it! Fell in love with it.

Love it!

Super love this velvet matte pencil!! This is my first makeup product from Nars and I'm really impressed. I got the shade never say never, it's on the purple side and it has small specks of glitter but it's super pretty and flattering!! I just wish it was twistable because sharpening the pencil is such a waste of product and money :(

Beautiful puckers that reflects your every mood!!

Okay so I'm just going to put my foot down and say I have several of this (Thanks so much Mom!) and I am addicted to each and every one of them! Haha. I have this in Bahama, Bettina, Consuming Red, Infatuated Red, Red Square and Walkyrie. And yes, I still want more. It's sooooo addicting! *sighs* I love this because of how it's a liner and a lipstick in one (duh!). It lines my lips perfectly and fills it with a smack of color! It barely transfers once it sets to matte and lasts fort a good 8 hours on me without retouch! It is such an amazing lip pencil and definitely a must have for every girl out there!
