I’ve had this since Friday & only just got round to getting the photos done so I could try it out. I’m not used to lip products but the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencils had been all over Youtube. I thought it may work better for me than a regular lipstick. It’s not cheap but it’s Nars so what did you expect. I went with a safe nude pink shade but not if you count the name, Sex Machine.
The words I said to my fella before we went to Leeds to basically convince myself that I would only be ever wanting one was this. I’ll get a neutral colour that I can wear with most of the make up I already have just to enhance my lips and finish whatever look I will be doing. Its going to last me a long time so the price is covered in the fact I will be wearing it often
All I can say is I’m already regretting saying it because I’ve not found a product this easy to apply before. Other than the fact that I clearly need to go out and get a lip scrub or get into gear and make a D.I.Y version it works perfectly. If I can use this on my first try to it look this good then anyone can. It glides on and doesn’t drag in the slightest. This one has a bit of shimmer to it but very subtle, not glittery in the slightest. It is a warm rose-pink tone, with a matte formula so it’s not sticky or shiny but also not flat or dull making my lips look fuller.
Nars Sex Machine is the perfect my lips but better shade.
I like that I can touch it and it doesn’t come straight off or go patchy. I also love the box, the only bit of the pencil that is matte like most Nars products is the lid so its easy to pull off. At first I though there’s nothing stopping the lid hitting the product inside but the lid is designed to be the perfect size around the pencil so the air inside compresses and lid can’t go any further usually it just springs back. I know people don’t like that it has to be sharpened and I’m not completely pleased with it but I like the lip pencil enough for it not to be an issue.
And I totally want more, I think I could live without buying lipstick again and just get more of these. I can’t afford to obviously so I will have to keep an eye out for other versions if there are any. I know I’ve seen a Max Factor one like them so maybe a good cheaper version but I don’t think its matte though. I still am trying lipsticks in the hope I find something cheaper than I can like as much.
