NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Bettina Review

NARS is one of my favourite brands. 

Every product I've tried by them has been a hit. 

Their lipsticks do not disappoint either. 

One of my ultimate favourites is their Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in the shade Bettina. 

Find out why below! 







Bettina is one of my go to lipsticks. The Velvet Matte Lipsticks are comfortable on the lips and non-drying. They are long lasting but will transfer on coffee cups and such.  

Pigmentation is also great. Great opacity. This isn't one of those sheer lipsticks. 

Bettina is a wonderful neutral. It's one of those "my lips but better" colours. It's a beige/pink that looks great day and night. I love wearing this when I'm wearing dramatic eye makeup since it's a neutral colour. I also tend to reach for this lipstick regularly and will definitely repurchase when it's finished.

There is one con. I hate that you need to sharpen these. Would prefer if they were retractable like some of the other jumbo lip pencils in the market currently. But it's one con I can live with. 

Overall, I would highly suggest the NARS Velvet Lip Pencils. They're matte, comfortable to wear, non-drying, and opaque. That's all I can ask for.  

Check them out here.

PS. If you're in the GTA there is an upcoming NARS/Shiseido Warehouse sale that I highly suggest you visit. They have past limited edition products from NARS at GREAT prices. Find details here.

Let me know if you've tried these lipsticks before and any shades you love!

Have a great week
