Skin Tone: Medium, Skin Type: Oily, Undertone: Yellow

Definitely my most favorite shade in the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil range! I have never loved a matte lip color as much as I love this. It’s very versatile (I love it most with NARS’ Mata Hari, though) and it always gives me that fun-yet-sophisticated overall feel about my makeup.

Regarding its application… well, I guess I have nothing to complain about because it always glides on nicely but it remains matte all throughout (I wear MAC Prep + Prime Lip under it, BTW). It neither tugs nor pulls, and I also do not feel it to be drying or settling into my lip lines. I don’t exactly remember how long it lasts on me because I’m fond of retouching my lips after eating or smoking, but I do recall that whenever I retouch it, it hasn’t faded much. When it does fade, though, it leaves a very pretty lilac-berry stain. Definitely going to repurchase this when I run out!

Temptalia Review

NARS Never Say Never Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($24.00 for 0.08 oz.) is described as a “lilac rose.” It’s a cool-toned rosy pink; it’s not as red as raspberry pink, but it’s not so cool-toned that it leans magenta or purple. NYX Rose is similar but has a very frosted finish, so it appears lighter. Guerlain Bloom of Rose is a warmer pink. Guerlain Belgravia is slightly pinker. Revlon Carnation is a bit frosted. MAC Unlimited is lighter and less cool-toned.
