NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Red Square

You must know my love for red lipstick by now and having gone 25 and a half years without ever wearing them; the past eighteen months (please don't do the adding up) have been an awakening and I can't seem to stop buying them.

'The long lasting, non-drying formula is enriched with emollients for a creamy texture, while a combination of unique silicones ensures long-lasting, seamless colour for hours with a velvety matte finish.'

Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencils are possibly my favourite formula of lipstick their description above couldn't be more accurate; they are so creamy upon application and highly pigmented but dry to a gorgeous matte finish.

Red square is a beautiful bright orange toned red, the lasting power of the Velvet Matte Lip Pencils are fantastic without being drying at all. If you're brave enough to rock a bold lip for work or during the day then these are definitely the formula for you, they are long lasting and easily topped up if needed.

I really want to get a few of the more toned down shades for when I get a bit brave on my eye look, oh hell I want the whole collection. Have you tried any of the NARS pencils? the satin ones are equally amazing.


  1. This color is so pretty and looks lovely on you... I have soooo many reds but now I'm wanting this too.

  2. Oh My god, GORGEOUS! I wish red lips suited me but my lips are so thin it looks like my tongues coming out ;) haha
    good blog love,

  3. I got the shade sex machine last year it's alot less scary than the name suggests and for me it's a few shades darker than my natural lip colour with a little bit of shimmer to it, red square looks gorgeous
