Train Bleu was my first Nars pencil purchase, and also my first (and so far only) return. The aubergine tone was lost on me, the color looked muddy and black. I wasn't going for a Wet n' Wild black lipstick circa 7th grade look, and therefore was extremely grateful for Sephora's generous return policy!

I love the shade, but I can't seem to make it appear on me as neatly as it does on Christine. Train Bleu seems to settle into my lip lines even though I also always wear MAC Prep + Prime Lip prior to putting on the lip pencil, in addition to making sure I've exfoliated my lips beforehand. It looks wonderful during the first to second hour, but past that, my lips begin to look as if there are black specks on them and I hate that I have to wipe my lips off entirely to fix the situation. ..maybe I'm doing something wrong? Not really sure, but I've never encountered this with most of the other colors in the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil range.
