Review on Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Damned

Hey guys! I've had a pretty busy day. I've been cleaning and organizing my room most of the day. I've been finding things that I've been looking for and found things I forgot about lol! Well this post is a review on the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil I purchased a while ago.

This is my first purchase by Nars!! I know, lol! I've been hearing so much about it but never really made a purchase. After seeing a few friends wearing the products and reading great reviews by my fellow bloggers, I decided to give something a try. I was so surprised I spent 25.00 on this lip pencil but it was so worth it!! There were so many colors to choose from and I decided to go with Damned, which is described as rich magenta on the Nars website. Here is a swatch of it.

This Nars lip pencil is one of the best ones I've ever tried!! I love how rich the color is and how moisturizing it is. Some matte lip products I've tried have made my lips feel dry but not this one. It felt so light on my lips, forgot I actually had it on. The best thing I loved about this Nars lip pencil is I did not have to reapply at all. It stayed on all night and the color didn't fade. The only con about it is that I have to sharpen it, I prefer the twist up pencils. Other than that small thing, I absolutely love it! I will be repurchasing another one soon, maybe in another finish. Here are a couple pictures of the look I created with the Nars lip pencil.

So that is it for my review on the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil. Have you tried this product before? What are your favorite Nars products? Comment below and let me know!!

It is always important to blend, blend blend your makeup!! I do have a few blending brushes but I wanted to have a few backups when I clean them. I love how soft these brushes are and how well they blend out eye shadows. I mainly use the Pointed Blender(black bristles) for the the outer crease and the deluxe crease(brown bristles) for right above my lid.

Have you tried the new Starbucks drink? It seems like it is missing something, like it needed to be sweeter or needed some saltiness. 
They recently opened a Zara in the mall near me! It is so nice in there, I only purchased one dress.

A little background on this company before we hop into the review: 
Fro Butter is a Black Owned Business started in 2012 by owners Susana Stewart and Caroline Maina. They were in the market for affordable and organic hair products and it all started from there. 
I was introduced to this product last year when I received it in my Onyx Box. I really loved the product and so did my husband and son lol. Taken directly from the site, the Emu Oil is designed…
