Belle de Jour

NARS Belle de Jour Velvet Matte Lip PencilNARS Belle de Jour Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($27.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a light-medium, yellowed peach with warm undertones and a matte finish. It looked a lot chalkier applied to my lips than it did on my arm (which isn’t uncommon with this type of color, in my experience). Though the actual texture did not feel dry and did not tug on my lips, it looked painfully dry–the color “split” at my lip lines and emphasized the natural texture of my lips. It had semi-sheer, somewhat buildable coverage that lasted for four hours. It was moderately drying on me.

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.

Bolero

NARS Bolero Velvet Matte Lip PencilNARS Bolero Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($27.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a bright, medium coral with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had medium color coverage that was buildable to semi-opaque coverage. The consistency felt smooth and velvety going on, but it looked drier and added texture to my lips. Some of the color sunk into my lip lines initially, which worsened as time went on. It lasted for four hours but was drying.

Get Off

NARS Get Off Velvet Matte Lip PencilNARS Get Off Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($27.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a light-medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer coverage, which was somewhat buildable, but it did not go on evenly and had a tendency to build on itself, so it looked uneven in texture, not just coverage. The lipstick was thinner, clingy, and fairly drying over the four hours it lasted.

Aww man. When I saw your post I started singing Prince’s Get Off song – one of my favorites. A shame it performed poorly. :-/

Looks as if these are the poorest of the bunch. I think Belle de Jour was better in the other formula, though I don’t wear it often. Very vintage Catherine Deneuve. I’m in for some of the others…

Both Belle du Jour and Bolero were on my list immediately after I saw shots of it! I can’t believe how poorly pigmented Belle du Jour is! It just seems to highlight the dry part of the skin so badly!

Eeks!!! These all look so dry and lackluster. Also, they appear downright uncomfortable. Not that I can even wear such light or pale matte nudes anyhow, but definitely not something this awful.

I just got Get Off. The color is amazing, an almost grayish peach. It’s a lot like Peach Buff by Maybelline. I agree that it’s a bit drying, but I prefer thinner lip products over thicker\creamier, so I’ll use a gloss when it gets too dry. Lovvve this color (and the Maybelline also!!)

The first is in direct light, the second is in indirect light – the idea is trying to mimic being in direct sunlight and being in the shade (or office, inside, etc.).

Thanks, Christine! That’s what I also thought (because this was stated before in the old site layout) but some people say that it’s a before and after photo. Thanks for clearing that up!

I’ve never had anything added to the captions to indicate anything specifically in this layout or the previous one, actually! It is, however, written in the Review FAQ! 🙂

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
