Usually I don’t like calling out bad products. I just don’t buy them again. But this time, I really have to make a point of the fact that I am so very disappointed with my Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil 

I bought the colour Sex Machine with the intention of keeping it at work as an everyday touch up item. Sex Machine is a great colour just in between pink and nude. Great for meetings and days in between Monday and Friday. I started using it on a Monday morning – I looked good, I felt good.  But my Thursday I was over it.

Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil goes on almost like a gloss, with a bit of a sheen. But it does not dry like a matte lip product. The colour does not last but a few minutes. The more I reapplied, the dryer and flakier my lips became. Trying to add a lip balm only made things worse. Also, the colour stick started coming out of the pencil, like a cheap colouring pencil from the dollar store. I was like, “really?”

I bought this for $31.00 CAD at Sephora. For a such an expensive product, that’s made by a premiere beauty brand
like Nars, it didn’t live to up all the hype and was not worth the purchase. Two thumbs down. Zero stars.
