Editor's Review

NARS Bettina Velvet Matte Lip PencilNARS Bettina Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($27.00 for 0.08 oz.) is soft, medium-dark rosy mauve with subtle, warm undertones and a pearl "matte" finish. It had the flat, shine-free look of a true matte finish but definitely had shimmer. It had medium coverage, which was somewhat buildable, that applied without tugging or dragging on the lips. The texture felt thinner and a bit clingy on my lips, and I found the formula somewhat drying over the four hours it lasted.

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.
