Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencils in Bettina and Damned

Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencils are a matte lipstick in an easy to use jumbo crayon form. These lip pencils can worn as a lipstick,  used as a liner (which Bettina is pefect for), or worn under lipstick for longevity. They apply smooth with no pulling, feeling creamy and soft while giving you a matte finish. The formula is long-lasting and non-drying. The pencil needs to be manually sharpened and will fit into most jumbo sized makeup pencil sharpeners (NARS has one available). They come in a variety of 17 shades.

Bettina is the perfect beige/nude pink with a subtle frost. It is a gorgeous, non corpse-like, wearable nude worn alone and serves as a great neutral base. It is also makes a great nude-tone lip liner. I am almost never without this one. Photo shows exact tone.

Damned is a very wearable deep magenta, berry-tone. Photo shows exact tone.

    Love them both, Taylor! Bettina looks like my kind of nude. I just ordered ‘More’ from the Fall collection – it will be my first NARS pencil (I know here you’re talking about the matte ones, but just as a note). I’m looking forward to picking up some others in this format too!

    • Hi Latoya…I was eyeing ‘more’ but I’m not a huge fan of the glossy pencils. Maybe because I am more into matte or satin these days, I do hope you love it. I can’t wait to see it on you. The collection looks lovely.
