Velvet Matte

Spring 2017 collection
My burning desire to swatch makeup was reignited when I received this set of NARS’ newest Velvet Matte Lip Pencils – 10 new shades to add to their famous matte range. It is undoubtedly one of my favorite matte formulas to date (although my lip compatibility with it varies from shade to shade). One of my top favorite, will-forever-wear red shades ever hails from this line – Cruella, a deep scarlet red that’s neither too warm nor too cool. I was so excited to try this out that all my “beauty blogging EQ” was thrown out the window. What “photos first before swatching or trying on the lips”? Nope. Way too excited for that.
As with the original Velvet Matte Lip Pencil range, the formula is thin, smooth, velvety, superbly saturated and super comfortable almost-as-if-you’re-not-wearing-anything-on level. If you hate wearing lipstick because of the heaviness since most mattes are heavy and drying, you have to try these. They’re not as long-lasting as liquid matte lipsticks that cling on to your lips like there’s no tomorrow, but I’d rather have lightweight matte lipsticks I have to reapply every 5 hours than a pruned up lip that’s cracking in the same amount of time.
I wore all the shades (except Get Off which I forgot to take a still photo of!) below and even did a lip swatching video so you can see the pigment when applied. Told you guys I was so excited. I hope this beauty blogging mojo doesn’t fade! Light a candle, please, guys. Hahaha!


NARS Do Me Baby Velvet Matte Lip Pencil is a deep plum with neutral-to-warm undertones. One of my unexpected favorites! Such an easy shade to wear and reminds me of a lighter, more livelier MAC Whirl.

NARS Let’s Go Crazy Velvet Matte Lip Pencil is a bright, medium-dark fuchsia pink with subtle, cool undertones.

NARS Intriguing is a dark pink with warm undertones.

NARS Famous Red is a bright medium coral with warm undertones.

Ahhhh! Love this! Pussy Control (let’s get past the name) is a muted medium-dark purple. Quite patchy as it isn’t as saturated as the darker ones in one swipe. But I love this shade!

NARS Dirty Mind is a deep, purply plum with warm understones. It’s muted and deep so it’s easy to wear than bright purples. This is also an unexpected like – I thought it’ be scary to wear but I actually quite like it against my skintone!

NARS Endangered Red is a deep, berry red with cooler undertones. These shades are my go-to reds and vamps so this is an easy love for me.

NARS Lonely Heart is a deep brown with cool undertones. It reminds me of MAC’S Antique Brown shade that I wanted to purchase but was undecided on. This shade is quite patchy and requires several layering to even out.

And finally, the most unique shade, Unspoken – a muted dark navy blue with cool undertones. The darkest lipstick I’ve ever worn, I think! NOT BAD. It’s not an everyday shade personally but it doesn’t look too ‘cartoony’ or ‘Avatarish’ as I expected. Will be reserving it for occasions that call for something dark blue, even black. I have to commend Nars for taking this leap, especially since it’s not such a popular shade others would actually buy but they still took the chance. Props!

They all looked sooo good on you Ms. Shari! My most favorite shade is the Endangered Red. I like those deep & vampy red ones. I think it suits any skin type kasi. Hehe. Well, i also think that suits you the most, together with Let’s Go Crazy, Do me baby & Unspoken! How can you still look good & pull off that kind of shade? Waah pero ang ganda niya. Hihi. 🙂

Hi Ms Shari, I think all of the shades naman ay bagay sayo eh. Me, Hindi ko Keri ang dark shades. Kaya ang pinakagusto ko ay Get off at Intriguing.
