NARS Velvet Gloss Lip Pencils…

February 11, 2011

I’ve seen a bit about these online but wanted to take a closer look myself in store. So I popped along to the counter in Brown Thomas.

What NARS say: “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 luminosity.
Available in six beautifully glazed shades, the Velvet Gloss Lip Pencils feature a lightweight formula that is enriched with Vitamin E. plus a blend of moisture-rich hyaluronic spheres for a lustrous look that’s exceptionally rich.
It doesn’t get glossier than this.”

They’re the new NARS Velvet Gloss Pencils.  A pencil….that’s also a gloss? Yeah, I was a bit skeptical too but they’re beauts! Here are some swatches…

The only thing I’d be worried about with these pencils is that you’d use them up very quickly and at €25/$24 each they’re not exactly cheap. I still want one in every shade though. Have you tried any of these yet?
