This Sephora exclusive limited edition ‘Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Set’ by Nars includes four full-sized Velvet Matte Lip Pencils, all sealed in a golden kiss covetable cosmetic case. The golden cosmetic case is inspired by the electrifying art of modern master Man Ray, who is well known as the ‘master-of-modern art’ and a very famous photographer of his time.
As mentioned earlier, this set features four full-sized shades: two of which are new limited-edition shades and two are from their existing line.
This set contains:
- 0.086 oz/ 2.4 g full-size Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Endangered Red (Bordeaux) matte finish
- 0.086 oz/ 2.4 g full-size Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Toundra (rust) matte finish
- 0.086 oz/ 2.4 g full-size Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Wild Ways (mahogany) sheer finish
- 0.086 oz/ 2.4 g full-size Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Spell Bound (shimmering pink beige) sheer finish
- Man Ray-inspired gold pouch
All of these lip pencils have velvety smooth finish and these are very easy to apply. These are not true matte, hence these are quite comfortable to wear.
The non-drying formula of these lip pencils is enriched with vitamin E and other emollients for a creamy texture. Because of this formula, it doesn’t dry out the lips.
All the shades in this set are pretty wearable. The color payoff is also good (not very long-lasting though). It needs re-application after having a meal or a cup of coffee. It is tranferrable but at the same time, it doesn’t leave any stain on lips after wearing off.
‘Spell Bound’ is little too sheer for my skin tone, but it has a little shimmer to it, which helps making it not look dull. Other three have good pigmentation, but then again, I have to apply few layers to see the actual color on my lips.
The only feature, I’m not very impressed with is that, these pencils are not retractable. So you may have to bear additional cost of $6 to buy NARS pencil sharpener to sharpen this product (if you don’t already have one).
Overall, I do think this whole set is a great deal for $49, which is a very reasonable price for 4 full sized NARS lip pencils. As a single lip pencil will cost you 27$ each, if you decide to buy any of these separately! This definitely makes a beautiful gift set for makeup lovers.
Hope you are enjoying this festive time of year with your friends and families 🙂
