Gorgeously glossy, intensely hydrating. NARS takes everything beloved about its Velvet Matte Lip Pencil—the convenience of a pencil with the application of a lipstick in a jumbo-size crayon design—then swaps the matte formula for one that lends lips luminous.
From NARS Cosmetics: Luscious Lip Pencils: Velvet Matte and Velvet Gloss
Lipstick in a Pencil
Available in six beautifully glazed shades, from seashell pink to raspberry sorbet, the Velvet Gloss Lip Pencils feature a lightweight formula that is enriched with Vitamin E. A blend of special emollients increase moisturization and improve barrier function for a lustrous look that’s exceptionally rich. Velvet Gloss Lip Pencils can be used alone or with other NARS lip products. Apply directly to the lips, lining first and then filling in.
Q & A WITH FRANCOIS NARS
Why did you want to create the Velvet Gloss Lip Pencils?
Makeup artists and customers have always loved our Velvet Matte Lip Pencils –they are so easy to use and very convenient. We thought a gloss version of the pencils was a perfect addition to the line. The Velvet Gloss Lip Pencils are so versatile and provide more precision than a lip gloss, without being sticky. They are the perfect hybrid of a lipstick and a lip gloss!
How are the pencils used in conjunction with other NARS lip products?
Velvet Gloss Lip Pencils are great to use with other lip products. They contain vitamin E and other moisturizing ingredients, so they can be used alone or over other lip products for added shine and dimension.
What makeup looks do they complement?
Given their sheer formulas, I love how the Velvet Gloss Lip Pencils look paired with nude or earth-toned eyes and cheeks. The total look is very sexy. But as they are layerable, they can be adapted to work with virtually any makeup look.
