I've been using the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils for as long as I can remember, more recently they're awesomeness (is that even a word!?) has been slightly shaded by the Satin Lip Pencils, which I also adore - but let's face it.. matte and me are just meant to be!
The other day I'd done my make up and felt like I looked a little lifeless, I needed to inject a little colour into my look. I grabbed the Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella and in a matter of minutes it completely transformed my look - It was a case of 'from Drab to Fab!' I decided that this was the perfect quick fix red lip. Usually I spend ages perfecting my red lips, I go through all the steps, the liner, the lipstick and even touch it up with concealer. When I've got the time it's all good but that's not often the case, there are those moments when I need a speedy solution and this is perfect! The texture is smooth and because it's a chunky lip pencil it's easy to give yourself a full pout in minutes. These feel so comforting on the lips without leaving your lips feeling dry throughout the day. The colour wears so well and ends up leaving your lips so prettily stained.
Red Square is usually my number one pick when it comes to the Velvet Matte Lip Pencils but Cruella is much deeper, bolder and is the ideal shade for time of the year. A quick Autumnal red and I loved it so much I've been wearing it the last two days! Have any of you tried these? What is your quick lip fix? Check out CruellaHERE.
