It should come as no surprise that I seriously love NARS cosmetics. My favorites are their Velvet Lip Glide and Matte Lip Pencils. So when I saw the NARS x Man Ray, The Kiss Velvet Matte Lip Pencil set at Sephora, I knew what I had to do. This set is valued at $132 and was on sale for $50. That is a killer deal. You’d have to be crazy to not take advantage of it!
So these lip pencils are great. I suggest using a lip primer before application. As you can see, Wild Ways and Spell Bound in particular are rather sheer but still highly pigmented. Endangered Red isn’t a shade I’ll use often, as it is quite dark, but it would be perfect for a night out on the town. Tondra is my personal favorite. This shade is gorgeous and it really compliments my fair skin.
- Endangered Red (Bordeaux) Matte Finish
- Wild Ways (Mahogany) Sheer Finish
- Tondra (Rust) Matte Finish
- Spell Bound (Shimmering Pink Beige) Sheer Finish
The bag is everything though. It has a super cute lip pattern with a shiny gold finish and you can fit a fair amount of items in it.
