If you’re a beauty lover like myself (who am I joking, why else would you be here?) you’ll know that the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencils are a cult favourite for well, everybody. As I don’t have a Nars counter in close proximity, I thought I’d try the much raved about high street dupe before I get my hands on the real thing.
When I wandered into Boots a few weeks ago, Maybelline just happened to be on 3 for 2, so it would have been rude not to take full advantage of the offer. There are seven shades in the range (for the UK) and I picked up 2 bolds and a neautral – Red Essential, Fab Orange and Nude Perfection.
The formula, although matte, is extremely creamy and is not drying at all which obviously in turn means that they’re quite transferable when eating and drinking and can be smudged if you’re not careful. The three Colour Drama Lipsticks I tried are all extremely pigmented so you can skip the lipliner (one less thing to do if you’re in a rush which I always am!)
I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments box below!
Ciao for now
