NEW TO MY WARDROBE

Nars Red Square

Every November I seem to rediscover my love of a bold lip colour, last year I was all about the purple vampy shades and spent a small fortune on lip products in preparation for the upcoming trip to Paris and Christmas parties ahead. Fast forward a year and absolutely nothing has changed except the shade choice. Nothing. Even Paris is still on the menu. But more on that one later...

This year it's all about the reds for me, mostly I seem to be gravitating to darker, more vampy reds. But on one very drizzly day, post boring bank meeting, I decided to add a hint of sunshine into my day and might have had a little splurge in Space NK. I instantly gravitated toward the orange toned red that is the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Red Square. Call it the lip sister to Essie's Meet Me At Sunset. I know I blogged about the Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick last week which is very similar in colour but hear me out on this one:

Easy to shape: The crayon/pencil application is far better than a lipstick bullet for precise application. This means I can actually make my almost invisible top lip seen in my videos *fist pumps the air*.

It doesn't move: Seriously, I'm a messy eater at the best of times (the food marks on our beautiful sofa accounts for this *cries*) and this stuff didn't move at all after I ploughed into breakfast. This is great for wearing to work, as my days are so crazy its unlikely you'll ever have the chance to re apply anything. The formula also seems to start out quite creamy, before setting to a matte finish. As a result this one never seems too drying on the lips, basically making it the perfect matte lip product for winter.

Being the girl who's slightly allergic to lip pigments (small face rash after long periods of wear - I won't go into too much detail), you know it's love when they appear in this little space. But now the question is - which other shades do I need?

  1. This is so gorgeous and as you say very close to the Rimmel one. However this is a matt formula which i love, i might have to spend a small fortune on buying this!

  8. This looks really great on you! Bold red but yet kind of natural. How do they smell? I'm always looking for lipsticks without scents.

  14. Hello! Love the colour! I've also been wearing brighter reds as the weather has turned darker. Do you know how this compares to the Lord and Berry lipcrayons? I absolutely love them and have a review coming soon on my blog, my favourites at the moment are 'Kiss' and 'Cherry' but I also have 'Scarlet' a more true red. But wondered how they compare in terms of wear-time and finish?

  18. The colour is absolutely gorgeous, I have the matte lip pencil in Pop life which is another deep red but I really don't like it, its patchy and not very pigmented. I'm begining to think I got a dud version :(

  20. This red is such a beautiful colour. But i have a question, do you associate a lipstick w/ this lip pencil? or do you only use the Nars lip pencil?

    ReplyDelete
  21. I've wanted to buy one of these NARS pencils for a while now, but am a bit thrown by the price. I would just buy it anyway, but it bother me that these don't have a twist bottom! Who makes you actually sharpen anything these days? It's a hassle and a waste of product!

    That being said, this looks so gorgeous on you I may purchase it anyway. Damn.
