Here's part two of my NARS Lip Pencil set (Sephora Beauty Insider set) post.
Yesterday, I posted about the other half of the gift that Liz gave me for my birthday two months ago. So today, I'll be sharing the swatches of the other half...
NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella
As I mentioned in yesterday's post, I received the Sephora Beauty Insider which contains two lip pencils from NARS—Rikugen and Cruella.
The NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugen has the simpler and easier to wear warm pink shade. The Cruella shade, on the other hand, is this very bold, matte, cool-toned, red lipstick that I think is becoming a new favorite lip color of mine...
But first, here's a photo of the back of the box containing the products' ingredients list and other important details:
So... yeah. This is becoming a favorite red shade along with MAC's Ruby Woo. I love cool reds because they compliment my warm skin so well and they give you that sophisticated look.
The lip pencils are in deluxe sizes though and I'm pretty sure that ones I run out of this, I will most probably buy a new one. :P I just don't like that I have to sharpen it. Do they have lipstick tube versions? :P
Here's a closeup of the pencil...
And the swatch on my hand
See! Pretty right? It's darker than Ruby Woo and I guess Ruby Woo is a little cooler in tone... but both are equally gorgeous of course!
Here's how Cruella looks on my lips!
I'm in la-la-la-LOVE!
I adore this color and I'm so happy that Liz gave this to me. Yay! It lasts long but it can be drying though so I sometimes put a layer of a matte lip balm underneath. :)
And that's all for this post. What are your thoughts on the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella? Do you like wearing this kind of shade of lippie? Do you know other dupes I can check out?
