Editor's Review

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.

By Olivia 4 years ago.

Settles into lines and makes lips look chapped, even if they aren't. Shows up unevenly and is not buildable without looking cakey. Nice colour, but the product really needs to be improved and isn't worth the price. Would not buy again.
