PRETTY PERKS...#34. NARS VELVET MATTE LIP PENCIL IN RED SQUARE.




Nothing says Summer like a bright Pop-lip! I love a bold matte lip shade, one that lasts well and looks a knock out on a nearly bare face. I know so many of my friends aren't brave enough to rock a seriously bright shade on their lips but I say ladies, you only live once, get yourself out their and show those sexy lips off! Make them your statement accessory! Meet Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil.















My favourite lip finish has always been matte, as for me, it lasts well and has always suited my style. I am not a lip gloss gal I'm afraid, never have been, never will. I was immediately drawn to this shade in Space NK, when I was "just browsing" and I couldn't help but try it out and purchase! This lip shade is Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Red Square. The fab chubby crayon style applicator, is great with or without a lip liner, as it fits around the shape of my lips perfectly and doesn't tend to bleed. The colour applies with a creamy even finish that really packs a punch.

Red Square is a rich pigmented burnt orange, which against my fair complexion, looks fab, if I do say so myself. When I wear this lip shade, I like to keep my make up bare with just a thin line of liquid liner and mascara. That way my pop lip will certainly steal the show! The colour lasts well, with usually just a little top up for me as I am one of those terrible lip lickers but I would say it lasts a good few hours.

I know Red Square, is a great investment for me, as I will most likely be wearing it all throughout the year not just for Summer.

What's your favourite Summer lip shade? Would you rock this Pop lip?

  3. Such a gorgeous shade, I often find it harder to pick up a red shade that works with lighter hair but this is just perfect!

    1. Thats fab! It's a great shade. I do love a matte lip so it's perfect for me but with a light gloss bet it looks great.

  8. This colour is gorgeous! looks a lot like russian red but I always find lip pencils are much easier to get a really nice defined shape!
