Nars Bolero Velvet Matte Lip Pencil: house of fraser (£17.50) 

Nars Bolero Velvet Matte Lip Pencil is a light pink with a hint of coral lipstick in pencil form. Its a creamy matte formula which I dont find very drying. I think it does settle quite a bit into lip lines if you look at it up close but its not too bad for "normal" distance viewing. Colour wise its my dream colour, I feel it suits my skintone really well and has a lovely matte finish. Sort of reminds me of a MAC satin finish lipstick, but creamier. I just think the formula itself is a little off though and could be much better, Despite it being creamy and smooth, i think can lead to it coming off a tad chalky despite it not feeling chalky or dry at all when being applied, which is strange.

If you wanted a drug store sort of dupe Barry M 147 is kinda similar in colour but less pink and more orange, which I dont think is as nice nice. The texture is completely different though as Nars Bolereo is a smooth creamy matte formula where as Barry M 147 is quite stiff and drying. I think it looks a bit like Illamasqua Obey, but not as coral as MAC Ever Hip.

  6. I love NARS' matte pencils but at that price I feel like they're only something I would treat myself to once in a blue moon. I'll stick to my MAC lippies for slapping on everyday. This colour is lovely though, reminds me slightly of a lighter Shy Girl.

  9. I'd love to try this product for the color, the resulting finish looks great on you, but if it's a tad chalky then perhaps I'd pass it up. Chalky lips are gross, but the color is just so pretty. The pinky shade reminds me of their blush in 'Orgasm'.

  12. Have you tried the topshop lipstick in coy? From the photos i'd say their a pretty good match, although I do find the topshop lipsticks (in pencil/crayon form like this) don't have much lasting power.

  13. I have never used a lip pencil before and never even really thought about them but this colour is just so pretty and I'd love to just try one out to see if they're any more convenient to apply for me. Perfect colour on you

  17. This looks so so similar to the ELF Studio matte lip pencil in coral, which I love and wear constantly! Would be interesting to see if it actually is a dupe, and if so, if it's any better/worse!
