Cult-favorite Velvet Matte Lip Pencil instantly delivers the impact of a matte lipstick with the spontaneity of a pencil. The long lasting, non-drying formula is enriched with Vitamin E and emollients for a creamy texture, while a combination of unique silicones ensures long-lasting, seamless matte color for hours. Lips are instantly saturated with rich, vivid pigments and a velvety matte finish. Its jumbo size provides the application of a lipstick with the convenience of an artist pencil, and the tapered end is perfect for lining, defining, and filling in lips. This versatile formula also makes it easy to pair with another lip product for added dimension or as a tinted base. Whether it’s soft and neutral or bold and edgy, this lip pencil is ideal for making a lip statement. Works best with NARS Pencil Sharpener. Other sharpeners may be harmful or damaging.

Velvet Matte Lip Pencil is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 320.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sharpening is a PAIN Beautiful color and feel, but why would you design a lipstick that requires a SPECIFIC sharpener? This is crazy! Buying a $27 lip pencil should be enough, I should NOT have to also buy your lip sharpener because the product doesn't fit into any standard size sharpener.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Base color is hrre My only regret is that I haven’t tried other colors. This color is exactly the same as my natural lip color.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dolce Vita I bought this couple months and and really like the way it glides on and feels on my lips. It doesn't smear. The only thing I don't like is I had to go back to buy the sharpener. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product, great color After a lifetime of lipsticks I thought to give lip pencils a go after reading a great review of these. Bought Damned....LOVE the color. Easy to use and do like it but color doesn't stay any better than lipstick which is disappointing. I do like the matte quality. Hate the fact that I had to buy yet another sharpener. But happy enough to be looking for another color.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great colour and texture but terrible design! Have bought several of these because I love the product - great colour and lasts long on the lips - but I've had it and won't buy any more. It's a lot of money for a product that breaks off every time you sharpen it so it only lasts a week or two. Why can't they design it so that it pushes up instead of sharpening so you don't waste most of it?
