This is a sort of lipstick crayon, it’s a really soft and pigmented lip product, which leaves a brilliant matte finish. This is the second Velvet Matte pencil I own from NARS (the other being Roman Holiday) and I think they’re great quality.
As it’s a matte finish, and I have dry lips, I’m always a bit wary of how it’s going to look on my lips. Lighter shades tend to make lips look even drier, but this has such a creamy consistency. I don’t find my lips get too dry when I use this, although a small amount of maintenance usually goes down well before applying!
This is fast becoming my favourite lip product, the colour is perfect – a peachy pink with a hint of coral, and it seems to stay on my lips for ages (something that rarely happens).
It’s a bit more expensive than other lipsticks, but I do think it’s worth the price. I love NARS products, it’s definitely one of my favourite brands and I think the shades they have are all gorgeous.
What do you think of NARS Bolero? (I think this product was Limited Edition but it seems to have been moved to the main collection now wooo)
