Editor's Review

NARS Roman Holiday Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($27.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a light-medium pin kwith subtle, cool undertones and a soft, pearl sheen. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable coverage. The color could have applied a bit more evenly, both in terms of overall texture as well as actual coverage. The texture felt smooth and velvety going on, so it was not uncomfortable to apply, but it felt thin and clingy while worn. It stayed on for three and a half hours and was somewhat drying.

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.
