NARS Mysterious Red Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Review

It has been a while now that I have reviewed any makeup product, so let’s just take a break from all the skincare rambling for now and discuss one of my favorite lip products. I have been a huge NARS lip pencil fan for a while now – the first shade that I bought was Yu and since then my love for NARS lip pencils has been growing and so is my NARS lip pencil collection. I have quite a few now – both in NARS satin and matte formulation. The shade that I will be reviewing today is “Mysterious Red”.


Price: $26
Product Description:
The application of a lipstick combined with the convenience of a pencil in a jumbo crayon design. Lips are instantly saturated with rich pigments and a velvety matte finish. The long lasting, non-drying formula is enriched with emollients for a creamy texture, while a combination of unique silicones ensures long-lasting, seamless color for hours. Use for lining, all-over lip color, or pairing with another lip product.
• Rich, vivid shades
• Enriched with Vitamin E
• Convenient, easy application
• Works best with NARS Pencil Sharpener. Other sharpeners may be harmful or damaging


My Experience with NARS Mysterious Red Velvet Matte Lip Pencil:

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil comes housed in a matte black chubby stick packaging. It is not retractable, so you have to sharpen it whenever it’s required. The end of the pencil is colour coded to the shade of the lip pencil. The name of the brand and shade are printed in white around the pencil.


NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil is one of my favourite lip pencil formulas. It’s like a jumbo pencil which covers the larger area at a single swipe and takes less time to cover the entire lips unlike the regular lip pencils. The formulation of NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil is just stunning. These pencils offer matte finish without drying out the lips.


NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil glides on very easily and feels very lightweight and comfortable on the lips. I didn’t notice any bleeding or feathering, which is a major concern for some people. It makes your lips look fuller and smooth and does not settle into the fine lines of the lips. But you do need to scrub your lips before applying this since it clings onto the dry patches of the lips.


The shade Mysterious Red is a stunning red with blue undertones. This shade will look stunning on every skin tone. Not only the formula is stunning but staying power is also great. I get full 7 to 8 hours of wear time without drinking or eating anything. It does fade when you eat or drink, but it leaves a stain behind, so your lips won’t look bare even if it’s worn off a little bit.




Pros of NARS Mysterious Red Velvet Matte Lip Pencil:

• Beautiful shade range
• Glides on easily
• Stunning red shade
• Will suit every skin tone
• Non-drying on the lips
• Doesn’t settle into the fine lines
• Makes your lips appear fuller
• Staying power is great
• Feels lightweight and comfortable on the lips
• Colour coded ends makes it easier to pick a particular colour from the makeup stash
• Covers more area of the lips than a regular lip pencil

Cons of NARS Mysterious Red Velvet Matte Lip Pencil:

• Sharpening will be bothersome for some people
• Clings onto dry patches
