Nars Velvet matte lip pencil Red Square Review

I have been on the hunt for the perfect orange toned red for Summer for a while now, and one rainy afternoon while browsing the internet for makeup, a far to regular occurrence! I came across the shade Red Square  in Nars velvet matte pencil range. Now I'm gonna sound like a bad blogger here, buttttttttt I have never tried anything from Nars, IKR!!

I knew I was onto a winner though as I have heard nothing but good things about the about the Nars Velvet matte lip pencils , so I cheekily added it to my birthday list and was lucky enough to receive it on my big day.

So are they worth the hype........ Well the lip pencil applies like a dream, it feels creamy with zero dragging, its super pigmented and dries down almost immediately to a matte finish. It doesn't feel matte on the lips, I haven't experienced any dryness or discomfort in fact it feels pretty moisterising which makes a change for a matte lip product.. The colour for me is just what I was looking for, its red but not a Christmas red, its pretty orange toned and I think a perfect summer shade.

Does it stay put........Yes it stays put pretty well for a red lipstick, the thing is with brighter colours you can rarely find one that lasts, but this Nars one can deal with cold and hot drinks really well, with no transfer. Upon eating it does ware slightly on the inside of the lips as you would expect really but it still manages to look presentable. It can also be topped up easily, and still look great.

I will definitely be adding other shades from this range to my collection as I am smitten with the formula.

Do you have any shade recommendations?
