Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Mysterious Red was launched in 2013 fall collection, as a limited edition. Thankfully, they decided to continue this shade and its now permanent. I have not been very keen towards trying out brighter shades as I usually stick to nudes or lighter ones. This fall, well there is no fall here in Dubai technically, but it seems like it when you do enter the malls as the stores are out with their fall collection and the temperatures are setting a bit lower, I decided to experiment with darker shades.
It would be so hard for me to decide on my favorite makeup brand but Nars definitely is on the list as one of my favourite makeup line. The moment I tried on the Nars pencil in Mysterious Red, I knew it was for me. It was just the perfect red I was on the lookout for. Its probably the look, feel, packaging, branding and pigmentation of course which does the magic each time! I love, love, love NARS !! My association with Nars goes back to my first Nars purchase from Paris, about 6 years back.
It is a combination lipstick and a pencil. The first look and feel of the pencil is more crayon like. Its as thick as a jumbo crayon which makes it extremely easy to hold on to and work with. The grip is non slippery and has a semi plastic-rubbery feel to it like most of other Nars products. I personally love their branding and packaging which intern plays a very important role in selecting a product.
The pencil glides on velvety soft in the true sense of the word and has a gorgeous matte finish. It is a brilliantly pigmented colour with a non-drying formula. Very chic indeed! The texture is uber smooth, silky and feels baby soft on the lips. Just line and fill in your lips, its that easy!
It tends to bring a smile on my face each time I wear it, as I enjoy the smoothness of the texture when I apply it on! Its OH-SO-GOOD! With added Vitamin E and a unique blend of silicones it makes it for the best show stopping colour. The colour is long lasting and does not move even when you are on an eating/drinking spree! It totally has the traits of a limited edition lip colour and makes me fall in love with it each time.
