If you saw my Sephora haul then you know I recently picked up my birthday gift. This so happened to be my first NARS product. Below is my review on the lip pencils.
Packing: Two lip pencils came in a rectangular box that had a birthday message on the outside of the box. The box itself is really nice and cute. The product was not a full size instead a sample. The full sized pencils themselves twist to get more product. This sample product does not twist so you just get the tip of the product.
Color: There are two pencils that are included in the sets. One is Rose Pink and the other is Scarlet Red. I personally love the colors! The colors are highly pigmented.
Wear: The longest I wore the scarlet red pencil was for 8 hours and only applied once after the first time. I was not expecting the product to last this long. Very shocking! I only have tried to wear the rose pink pencil once and did not have a good experience with it. I felt as if it did not work as good as the scarlet red. However, I only tried it once and its not fair to give a full review on it.
Price: The product I received was free through Sephora’s Birthday Gift. Both lip pencils are priced at $26. I would pay around $18 for this product. In my opinion these lip pencils are very similar to NYX Cosmetics lip products. The formula and texture of the two brands are similar in my opinion. I don’t really see anything special about this product. Its a very nice lip pencil but not worth the hype.
Overall Rating: 4.5 out of 5
