Why people love it
  • Surprisingly non-drying
  • Like magic; won't crack, fade, or bleed
  • Crayon lasts much longer than expected

Pretty lightweight compared to other expensive lip products, which really could be a pro or a con depending on what you prefer.


Formula: The jumbo crayon design of the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil combines the application of a lipstick with the convenience of a pencil. Use for lining, all-over lip color, or pairing with another lip product. The long lasting, non-drying formula instantly saturates lips with rich pigments, is enriched with emollients for a creamy texture, and sets to a gorgeous, velvety matte finish.

Shade Variety: While the collection is known for its dark reds and dimensional nudes, this product is available in a total of 31 shades from nude, to pink, to deep red. A few of our favorites include Cruella and Belle De Jour.

Staying Power: A combination of unique silicones ensures long-lasting, seamless color for hours. And if you do feel the need to reapply, the pencil design makes touching up a breeze.

Price: Ouch, $27 for a lip pencil is a little on the pricey side. However, a little goes a long way with this product, so it could be worse.
