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 colour 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best long lasting lip color I bought this a month ago at Blue Mercury in Charlottesville looking for a dark matte and fell in love with this, it stays on for hours. Best product if your looking for eye popping color

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Absolutely love this. Colour is perfect for parties, and probably for day wear too. Goes on like lip balm and feels so smooth all night. Couldn't fault it. Forever looking for a red that doesn't mark my teeth like the amateur makeup wearer I am, and this is absolutely perfect in every way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long lasting! The first day I wore this was Christmas Day. Lots of snacking and drinking happening. Several hours into wearing this product my cousin asked if I was wearing a lip tint because my color had not faded one bit! Since it's a matte, it's a little dry on your lips but I'm sure there is some secret to fix it that I'm not aware of.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FAV. I only buy NARZ Velvet Matte Lip Pencil. It never fades and doesn't dry out my lips. I did have a sharpening issue when I first started using it, however if you purchase the NARZ sharpener you will no longer have issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning Finish I love mine! It doesn't dry out my lips and it rarely needs a touch up. I love the matte look, I wear this Abby every day! Only down side is you have to buy their sharpener, as I couldn't find another that the pencil fits.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Request for NARS I love Never Say Never matte lip pencil! It's my go-to along with Damage lipstick. Request: Would you make NSN into a satin pencil? Sometimes my lips are dry and I'd wear a cool pink with a touch of shine & moisture. Thank you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cruella is a great color & will suit many people I bought the Velvet Matte Pencil in Cruella and I'm so glad that I did. It doesn't really bleed on me even with lip balm underneath and Cruella is a lovely red on me and will look lovely on a range of many different skin tones as well. My shade in Nars Velvet Matte Skin Tint is Malaga.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wasn't what I expected This was my first expensive lipstick and I was disappointed. I wasn't satisfied with the pen and it's expensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lipcolor for brown skin! I received a sample of this in my birthday gift from Sephora. I have light brown/tan skin and most "true red" lipsticks I've tried turn a shade of magenta on my lips. I tried warmer reds that were more in the "coral" family, but they make my lips look red-orange. On me, Cruella is actually a bright red! Not magenta, not orangey red. Red! I paired it with a drugstore lipgloss (Wet and Wild My Cherry Amour) and it was stunning. Definitely try it if you have tan skin and a similar magenta lips problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME . I recently revived this product as a sample it is a GREAT PRODUCT. I am very happy with this can't wait to try more colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Creamy Matte! Matte lipsticks are usually really drying and can get sort of cakey in the middle after a few hours. I had not had any of those usual problems with this. It's creamy and smooth with full coverage and no streaks and lasts a long time (longer if you don't eat or drink, lol). I plan on buying some for my sister for her birthday because she is forever complaining about how matte lippies always dry out on her. She will love this. One of the reviews complained about "less than a half inch of product" and that it doesn't "twist up for more" - SHARPEN. THE. PENCIL. I love this product and I will definitely buy more and in more shades; right now I only have Cruella and one other that I can't remember the name of right now, but I love them both. :D

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my Favorites! I love this color! It's pretty, feminine and low-key enough for business -- not too vampy. I want to ask NARS to offer this color in gloss because I'd love it with a bit of shine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best true red I love Nars Matte Lip Pencils and have Pop Life and Dolce Vita but was looking for a true, bright red and this is absolutely perfect. I have pale skin and red hair and reds often look too pink on me but this is a very true red.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Strong Chem. Odor I love the pigment but for some reason it smells rather strong in odor, particularly like a paint marker deco-type smell. I prefer to use a more natural lip since, I am not sure if I wish to wear it on my face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOOOVE I got Cruella for my birthday as a gift from a makeup shop in my town and I LOVE it. The color is very rich and long lasting. I don't even wear lipstick but I would wear this one every single day if I didn't have to worry about running out

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING> I have had this for ages and am beyond impressed. It doesn't dry out, it goes on amazingly and the finish is beautiful. My only flaw is that it bleeds a little bit - easily fixed with a liner. It's beautiful, it's amazing, it's a beauty staple. Love love love love love

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great color! I live the lip pencil it is soft and gives off a lovely color not streaky at all!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not enough! I just purchased this and realized that I only have less than an inch of lip color to work with. The pencil doesn't push up to reveal more product, this little tip is all you get for $26. What a waste.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pigment!! This lipstick was given to me by a friend and I love it so much! It works with almost any skin tone!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fantastic colour I cannot get over the gorgeous colour of dolce vita, I'd heard good things but I wish I hadn't put off buying for so long! I have dry lips and this makes them no worse. Only problem is I find it comes off incredibly easily, no staying power. But that doesn't bother me, but might bother some. If you're on the fence, give it a go!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this color! The search is over! This color (Never say never) is the most flattering and wears really well. I just wish Nars would make this in a regular lipstick version.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Lip pencil I bought this product yesterday from Sephoria in Memphis, TN primarily because I love, love all of Nars line. I was looking for a lip pencil that wouldn't dry out my lips and give me a semi-natural color. When I tried this color on I knew that I had found what I was looking for. It glides on to the lips, is not drying and has great staying/staining power. It is my new go to lipstick and this weekend I will purchase two more just in case you all discontinue this color. Happy in Houston, Texas!
