How are you guys doing?
I'm back with a review today <3
The one I'm going to review today is a lip pencil from NARS. I always love NARS product!
Sadly, as I am still a student with limited income, I have to save my money first before I can buy one..
NARS is pretty expensive, you know ><
So, the product name is NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil. Bought one at a special price (IDR 190.000/USD 19) at an online shop called Sugar Bomb. The reason she sell it at such price is because it came with no box.

The shade I bought is Dolce Vita.
I'm not good at describing colors, in fact, I'm sucks at it.. >< but in my opinion, Dolce Vita is a warm red, with a hint of orange (or brown..?) in it..

When I took this lip close-up pic, the color shows up a little bit sheerer. But it looks bolder on my lips with full-face pic.
What I love about this pencil is that it doesn't dry out my lips! I tend to avoid matte lip colors and prefer to wear lipgloss because my lip dries easily. At least, lipgloss could hide the dryness.. xDD
I didn't experience any dryness while wearing this one. It doesn't even drying when I wear it to church! (FYI, the air-con in my church building is very cold and tends to dry my lips ><)
The color is also long lasting. And it compliments my skintone too... Really love this one... <3
The color is very suitable for those who wants a bold lips without overdoing it. Or those who meets difficulties when wearing red lip color.
