NARS Damned Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($27.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a rich berry with cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied an even, smooth layer of color that sat well on the lips. Despite having a more matte finish, it did not look dry or powdery on my lips. The consistency felt velvety as it glided across the lips, and it was a lightweight formula that was comfortable to wear and non-drying over the six hours it lasted. There was a slight stain left behind after I removed this shade.

The formula is supposed to be “long-lasting” with “rich” and “seamless color.” The texture has a more velvety feel: smooth, thinner but glides on easily, and doesn’t have a lot of wetness/creaminess. The pigmentation varied from shade to shade with most shades having semi-opaque coverage. They were easy to apply along the lips and comfortable to apply, as they did not tug. The formula lasted anywhere from three hours to six hours, and some shades were somewhat drying and others were non-drying.

NARS Loaded Eyeshadow Palette ($TBA for 0.48 oz.) is a new, limited edition spring palette that’s to-be-released. I don’t have much info on it yet, other than it’s limited edition! My guess is sometime in March, though, and as soon as I have more information, I’ll either update this post or create a new post for its launch.

Pussy Control

NARS Pussy Control Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($27.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark purple with subtle, warmer pink undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had good color payoff, though it was not quite opaque without building up the color in layers. The consistency was smooth, velvety, and glided on easily, while the lip color sat fairly well on the lips but some texture was emphasized. This shade wore for four and a half hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating.

NARS Bahama Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($27.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a muted, medium plum with warm, rosy undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had good pigmentation that applied evenly across the lips and never tugged or dragged. The consistency was thin but lightweight and not clingy, which made it more comfortable to wear, though it was not hydrating. The color stayed on the lips well for four and a half hours.

On February 14th, there will be 10 new shades in the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($27.00 for 0.08 oz.), which is a jumbo-sized pencil that’s supposed to have “full-coverage color.” NARS included all the other permanent shades in the range when they sent samples, so I ended up swatching all of those shades as well. The new shades include: Get Off, Intriguing, Do Me Baby, Famous Red, Let’s Go Crazy, Pussy Control, Dirty Mind, Endangered Red, Unspoken, and Lonely Heart. The new shades launch exclusive at NARS and Sephora on the 14th and will be available at all other retailers May 4th.
