Editor's Review

NARS Train Bleu Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($27.00 for 0.08 oz.) is deep, purpled berry with cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that went on fairly evenly and smoothly. The consistency was velvety, smooth without being emollient, and glided on easily. The lip color could have sat a bit better on lips, but it lasted for six hours and was just a touch drying overall.

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.

Train Bleu was my first Nars pencil purchase, and also my first (and so far only) return. The aubergine tone was lost on me, the color looked muddy and black. I wasn't going for a Wet n' Wild black lipstick circa 7th grade look, and therefore was extremely grateful for Sephora's generous return policy!

I love the shade, but I can't seem to make it appear on me as neatly as it does on Christine. Train Bleu seems to settle into my lip lines even though I also always wear MAC Prep + Prime Lip prior to putting on the lip pencil, in addition to making sure I've exfoliated my lips beforehand. It looks wonderful during the first to second hour, but past that, my lips begin to look as if there are black specks on them and I hate that I have to wipe my lips off entirely to fix the situation. ..maybe I'm doing something wrong? Not really sure, but I've never encountered this with most of the other colors in the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil range.
