As formal season rolls around, it’s a fun time to play up your look. I decided to test out NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil. As someone who loves a fun lipstick, I can say that this product did not disappoint. I tried out the Roman Holiday Color, a bright bubblegum pink. The lip color was perfect; the pencil applies a good dose of color, but is not as opaque as a lipstick. However, I would strongly advise exfoliating and applying a moisturizer before using the pencil, as it can really dry out your lips. Overall this is a great product to use if you want to use a bright color but also keep a semi-natural look. You can purchase this product for $26 on Nars.com.
