Damned

NARS Damned Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($27.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a rich berry with cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied an even, smooth layer of color that sat well on the lips. Despite having a more matte finish, it did not look dry or powdery on my lips. The consistency felt velvety as it glided across the lips, and it was a lightweight formula that was comfortable to wear and non-drying over the six hours it lasted. There was a slight stain left behind after I removed this shade.

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.

Endangered Red

NARS Endangered Red Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($27.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a deep, berry red with cooler undertones and a satin finish. It had medium, buildable color payoff, while the texture was smooth going on, it did seem to gather in lip lines slightly. The color wore well for over six hours and left a stain behind, but the formula was mildly drying.

Dirty Mind

NARS Dirty Mind Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($27.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a deep, purply plum with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. The pigmentation was mostly opaque, while the texture felt smooth and velvety going on, though it looked a little drier on the lips. It was lightweight, fairly comfortable to wear as it only felt drying after five hours of wear, and the color lasted for six in total.

Looks like Damned and Dirty Mind need to go on my wish list. Damned sooner rather than later. I think I can wait until fall again for Dirty Mind.

These are my kind of shades! But looking at the dupe list, I have dupes for 2 of them and plan to pick up NARS Fanny for the first one. So I think I’ll pass on these!

Every single one of these shades are in my proverbial wheelhouse! Love them ALL. You know what that means, right? Dupesville here! UD Troublemaker and After Dark, Colourpop Bijou, Never mind (which is horrid), Panda and MAC Media, too. Could possibly even add UD Disturbed into the mix, though warmer.

I’m really, really liking these NARS pencils. First of all, I prefer the pencil format; second, there are some great colors. This is severely testing my don’t-need-any-more-lipstick-EVER resolve.

I will definitely have to pick up Dirty Mind next fall. I am all berried out right now! Trying to finish one of my berry lipsticks before purchasing another one.
