I got this in my Sephora birthday gift (2015) and I have to say it's not a lip product I'd EVER have picked out because it's matte and red...I almost never wear either of those things. BUT I LOVED this!! What a pleasant surprise and a truly great birthday gift from Nars and Sephora. I am definitely a fan. Even though it was matte, it wasn't dry or look chalky. Even though it was a wine-y red, it wasn't vampy or too bright. I have fair skin with pink undertones so red usually looks weird on me, but I would definitely repurchase this. This is going to be fantastic to wear this fall and winter!

Fell in love with it the second I put it on! This is the kind of red lipstick that any girl could wear and pull off. I got it as a sample size gift from Sephora and I am planning on purchasing it from NARS soon. I just love it!

I got this today in my birthday gift from sephora. I dont usually wear red lipstick but since trying this one on, i may have to rethink it. It is gorgeous and sexy, and i think very flattering. Even though it smudged a bit on the corner of my mouth, i can get it off by using a tissue and powder to "erase" it. Red lipstick can smear but since this is a pencil, you can prevent smearing over the lip line by tracing it and then filling it in. I wondered how you get more of it since it didnt feel like a wooden pencil and it didnt twist up, but you do sharpen it with a sharpener.

This is a deep true blue-based red. The lipstick is highly pigmented. Although this is a matt formular it is not drying on the lips at all. Because of the pencil shape, you can use this as lipstick and lipliner. However I would recommend using a colorless lipliner for the outer rim of you lip to achieve a flawless look. The only con is, that the sharping of the pencil is always a bit messy. If you like red matt lips this is definitly a lipstick worth checking out!

This is type of beautiful dark red that works across the board on skin tones, its very flattering! I love the matte finish but it can get a little drying so make sure to prep lips with a nice scrub and a good lip balm. Overall a great product in a great shade, I'll most defiantly be purchasing more of these in the future!

Cruella is the first velvet matte lip pencil I got, but it won't be the last! I am not a fan of glossy finish, so this lip pencil is ideal to me, and inspite being matte, it applys like a dream and I don't find it drying. The red is a very beautiful deep red and it last for hours. It fades leaving a pretty stain. I am eyeing the Dolce Vitta as an option for a nude lip color!
