Nars Velvet Matte Lip Crayon

I had quite a naughty little purchase a couple of weeks ago, but I feel it was acceptable as it was with some birthday money. It was something that I had been thinking about for a while after seeing so many bloggers rave about this Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil, I picked up shade Dragon Girl (2457). It is a beautiful bright red which does apply to the lip in a deeper, slightly darker shade of red.

For me, this is something out of the ordinary, I don't really tend to wear many lip products never mind something so bright, but there was just something about it which whispered to me that I had to buy it when I tried it on at the Nars counter in Harvey Nichols. I love that you can just apply a small amount to create a red stain on your lips or go for a very bright rich colour which would be perfect for a night out. I feel the best way to describe this look on me might sound a little silly, but it is what always springs to mind; with my pale skin, dark hair applying this product reminds me of quite a vampire esk look (yes I do wish I was Bella in Twilight, but don't worry I'm not obsessed with vampires). 

I also love the fact that it is a matte product, now I do have an obsession with mattes, I'm just not an overly big fan of shimmers and having something so bright and shiny on my lips can be a big no no depending on my mood.

When I noticed it was quite a hard crayon I was a little worried that it would dry my lips out and be a little harsh, but it is the complete opposite, it is so soft to apply and once on you hardly even remember you are wearing it.

I would love to hear if you have used this product before and what you think of it.
