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.

Velvet Matte Lip Pencil is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 340.
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 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 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! After seeing a review of this color pencil by others, I immediately fall in love with it. It didn't fail me. The color is gorgeous, more close to Russian Red. Really like the velvet texture of it, and it is not dry at all. I can easily wear it all day. It becomes my favorite lipstick for now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Stick Ever in History I've used every brand of liner on earth and this NARS stick has always surpassed every single one. There's no point in using a liner and a lipstick. This is both in one. The fat pencils are the only thing I use on my lips and NARS is worth the price for this. I reapply only once and it stays perfect all day with no smudging, etc. Best features: it's an actual pencil (must use sharpener) and pencils look better and last longer than the twist pencils; it's also so velvety, without the gloss. Very natural look but with a "wow!" I can go without any other long as I'm wearing my NARS matte pencil!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Perfect Red Got this as a sample for Sephora and used the whole thing in a week. It is a perfect red, not too orange like some end up being, and it doesn't dry out your lips. It stayed bright for hours and through two lattes! Really just a great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every single penny I own about 7 different reds. this is without a doubt my favorite. Ive never reviewed anything online before, but i love this so much I had to. I lost mine and I am so so sad, but whenever anyone asks about a red lipstick, I direct them to Dragon Girl. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT COLOR! This came in the mail to me as a birthday gift (from Nars) and this color is the perfect match. My skin is brown like Janelle Monae and it's always difficult to find the perfect shade of red for my skin tone but this one is it. And it's a shade of red that will work well with any skin-tone. Suggestion: Once you get to the end of the first "stub" of the product, don't throw it away, use/buy the Nars sharpener. :

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sexy lips I love this lip color. My friend and I both have it and are completely different complexions,but it looks fab on both of us. The only thing I didn't like is that I can't find a way to sharpen it. I love lip color and am always seeking the best color and finish. This was one of my all time faves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful BOLD color This was in a duo pack as a birthday present from Sephora this year and quite honestly I was never confident in shades of red so at first I thought it was a shame that THIS super bold color was a present but boy was I dead wrong, this is such a beautiful semi matte color oh my god it truly brings out your best features and ties various makeup looks together. As soon as I finish my birthday gift I'm headed to restock on this color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nars you are simply the best. This is my first time using a lip pencil and at first I thought it would be drying on the lips but once I tried it, like whoa! The application was seamless on the lips. The texture was creamy and non drying and lasted hours. I just picked up another red. Love!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best red ! I got this a while back but thought it would be to intense for me. Well for a holiday part I decided to pull it out and give it a try and thank heavens I did because I have just found my signature red. Usually I'm too nervous to wear red because I'm self conscious but this red makes me feel confident and beautiful! If that's not a good lip product i don't know what is!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful colour The shape is very handy and the colour is wonderful. It makes my lips dryer but the colour lasts long, even after a meal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pencil/Color Not As Pictured The Velvet Matte Pencil is a wonderful product, it goes on smooth and creamy without drying out my lips. The color (Dolce Vita) was disappointing and not as pictured. I normally wear nudes, light pinks, blushes and neutral shades. The color is much darker than expected with orange undertones. I would recommend the lip pencil but not the color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing texture This is absolutely wonderful!! Glides on so easily and feels amazing on the lips. Don't think I will ever buy a lipstick again. Will stick to these great pencils.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely colour, very flattering I use this product with a lip liner underneath.. I was surprised that this had tiny shimmer particles in it as it wore off throughout the day considering it's a matte product other than that it's a beautiful colour, perfect for my skin tone.
