Founded by makeup magnate and French artist, Francois Nars, this brand is well-loved by professional makeup artists, designers and beauty junkies alike. Francois is an innovator and creates products instinctively instead of following trends. The result: bold and sophisticated makeup and skincare that are runway to real-way ready. Infamous for provocative shade names like the best-selling blush, Orgasm, this cult brand is a staple for the fashionable set or for anyone looking to add a pop of color in her look.
Awesome matte formula! Very pigmented and easy to apply, because of the pointed pencil shape. I feel like a lot of jumbo pencil lip products are more sheer, but these definitely pack a punch! You don’t really *need* a lip liner with this, because you can get pretty precise. Or, if like me, you prefer a more casual, slightly smudgy look then this is also perfect for that. I find that these last a long time on the lips.4 months ago
I have this in Dolce Vita and it is such a good everyday lip color. I find the color to be unique and unlike any nude or red out there. I also love the consistency of this product. It makes it so easy for me to glide it on my lips.about 1 year ago
I use this as a lip liner to give my lips a fuller shape. My favourite shade is Do Me Baby which is a purplish nude one. I use it to outline my lips then I put the Anastasia of Beverly Hills liquid lipstick. That's my go-to combo whenever I get too lazy to retouch for the day. Mahirap lang sya tasahan since it's a lip pencil.about 1 year ago
Roman holiday is such a perfect pink for me. I am very fair, and typical pinks usually make me look like a siopao with a lipstick. This shade gives me the pacute pink that suits me. It can especially be matched when you have heavy eye makeup. Yes it is expensive, but it goes a long wayabout 1 year ago
I got one in the shade of Valkyrie a couple of months back. It's very soft, moisturising, and lasts long. It also has a nice berry scent to it. The only downsides I see are the price, and the fact that it crumbles a bit whenever I sharpen it.over 2 years ago
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.about 3 years ago
