Train Bleu
Skin Tone: Fair, Skin Type: Normal, Undertone: Neutral

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!

Surprisingly awesome on me! I thought it would be too bright but it is superb as a summer red. Sometimes I tone it down with Dragon Girl to make it a little less orange.

Never Say Never
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!

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

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.

Cruella
Skin Tone: Fair, Skin Type: Normal-to-Dry, Undertone: Neutral

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!

Cruella
Skin Tone: Tan, Skin Type: Combination, Undertone: Yellow

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

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!
