Cosmetic Addiction

As a NARS junkie–their killer lipsticks in particular–I was hesitant about their velvet matte lip pencils, but decided to give it a try.

I went with bolero, described as “pink cantaloupe” on Sephora’s website.  It was a lot brighter than I anticipated although not jarring. The lipstick worked great with my neutral look of jeans, booties and a sheer cardigan, but I could see this color working great with a short cocktail dress.

Pro’s: lightweight, heavily pigmented, great color

Con’s: needs re-application, watch out for cracks or dry lips because the matte only highlights those cracks

I suggest exfoliating your lips with either a scrub or toothbrush, adding a moisturizing chapstick and then start by lining the lips with the color first and filling in the rest of your lips. Hello, gorgeous!
