NARS Red Square


All you have to do is scroll down this page to realise that the NARS velvet matte lip pencil in Red Square is an absolute beauty.  After reading endless amazing reviews of these pencils, specifically this shade, I couldn't resist adding this to my basket while making a Debenhams order.



When I was reading the reviews of this, everyone seemed to talk about how it was super matte but still comfortable, and I couldn't imagine it at all.  Surely all matte lipsticks have to be a little bit uncomfortable? I was wrong.  It's hard to tell there is anything on your lips after applying this, let alone a super matte formula.  It's really comfortable to wear, and the colour stays put for such a long time - it was still hanging around after a barbecue and drinks!

The pencil packaging makes it easy to apply (although the sharpening is a bit annoying), and I love how it looks - so easy to find in my stash!  The bright orange-toned red is the perfect party shade for the summer and it will definitely be joining my on my holidays this summer.

  3. How well do you pull this off?!? I have a couple of these and really like them! Can't beat a matte lip! I'm not a fan of sharpening though, I always feel like I end up wasting product!xx

  5. NARS lip products are so good! I was really surprised at how comfortable it felt too, I was expecting it to feel heavy and greasy - but it was so lightweight, it's perfect! x

  7. This looks gorgeous. My favourite red is Russsian Red by mac but since buying it I've stopped using make up tested on animals so know I can't repurchase it! This looks like such a great alternative.
    Love Hayley,

  8. I love the NARS lip pencils, they are amazing! I found the matte formula to be just a tad drying but still comfortable to wear. I need to pick up more!
