NARS Lonely Heart is a slightly warm-toned, dark brown with a matte finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $27.00 and contains 0.08 oz.
NARS Lonely Heart Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($27.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a deep brown with cooler undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had medium, buildable color coverage that applied decently, but it did not apply as smoothly nor as evenly as many other shades in the range. I was surprised, as some of the deeper shades are the best-applying. The texture also appeared less forgiving on my lips and more prone to emphasizing the natural texture of them. This shade wore nicely for six hours but had some color that pulled into lip lines over time, while the formula was slightly drying after four hours of wear.
