For some time, I have been oogling the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencils. It was just a matter of which color to get my creepy, little hands on. Then, as it got closer to fall, I decided it was time for a new red lipstick. And when it comes to red lipsticks, they have to be matte for me. I'm just not a fan of a shiny, red lip. So, after swatching Nars Dragon Girl, I decided it was the one. The formula of this is just lovely. It glides on really smooth and the pencil shape eliminates the need for a lip liner. This sits nicely on the lips, not highlighting dry areas, which is a big plus for me. There's few things I hate more than having my lipstick settle into my dry, cracked lip patches. Well... ok, serial killers, maybe. And rude drivers. Well, you get the idea. Anyway, this also has some awesome lasting power. I have issues with my lipstick lasting longer than 30 minutes, but this lasts hours without budging. I have a feeling this might even replace my Mac reds :)
