it doesn't dry out like my other lip pencils and has a nice creamy texture

i have used this pencil as lipstick -- it has a smooth texture, glides on easy, assumes a matte color on the lips, lasts through dinners, drinks, etc

Nars Velvet Matte is LOVE

I simply could not love a product more,,. easily my all time favorite lip product. I was deliberating between the colors Dolce Vita, Cruella, & Damned and decided upon Damned because of the beautiful plummy-raspberry tint it gives your lips... I'm pale and usually do a natural face so I love using a bold lip color to amp things up a bit! It stays on forever and because it is a jumbo pencil, you can line lips first which means flawless & precise application! My favorite summer purchase thus far!Note: because it is matte and creates almost a stain finish- be sure to moisturize lips prior to application. If you apply on top of dry lips the pigmentation will settle into cracked lips (just like any lipstick or stain)

Excellent Product

I own both "S*x Machine" and "Bettina." I love these lip pencils. They apply smoothly and are very long lasting. I have small lips with little pigmentation, and these make my lips look fuller and pigmented in a natural way. I think "Bettina" is my favorite since it is such a natural color and easy to wear everyday. Also, because these lip pencils are rather thick, they are easier to color in the lips. The only negative I would point out is that they are rather drying; however, if you put on a bit of lip balm either before or after you will be fine.

Don't get it

This went back! I thought the coverage was sheer and not at all like what other reviewers boasted about. I found better coverage, long lasting lip pencil at a drugstore for more than half the price of this pencil. Bottom line, stick with what works for you. And don't believe the hype!

Great quality and price

If I remember correctly, these are the same size as last year's birthday gift- and they're the same color, leading me to guess that they might be leftover. However, I'm not complaining- though Dolce Vita is not a good color for me, Cruella is my absolute favorite lipstick. The matte stays on all day, doesn't dry out my lips too much (there is some flaking towards the center of my mouth after several hours), has a creamy application, and a wonderful opaque color. Unfortunately, I can't say much about Dolce Vita, but I passed it along to a friend and she adored it. Furthermore, the price is great. One pencil (.086 oz) is $26; there are each .06oz, and are valued at about $18 each. All in all, you save nearly 45%. I would recommend this especially if you wish to try both colors, love both, or love one and want to try the other. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="-2774019673912459462-full" data-show="-2774019673912459462-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>

Very pleased

A great buy! I love the color Cruella! It's a beautiful red, not purple or pink-to me its a beautiful crimson. I have the Dusty Rose to my mom-It was nice on her, so as far as that shade I think it's good for a mature woman since it's not too pink, but a natural pink so it would be good for a younger woman as well! Stays on fairly well and not too drying. Its not a full size but its ok since I believe it will still last you a while since you don't need a ton of it to apply to see the color since its pigmented enough to show up. Worth the twenty bucks!
