(L-R) 630 Nude Perfection, 420 In With Coral, 140 Minimalist and 520 Light It Up

The pencils are small but chubby making it easier to hold on to and line the lips before use. The precision of the wand makes it the perfect pencil to subtly overdraw your lips – while mastering the Kylie Jenner lip challenge – and perfectly contour and fill the lips without leaving any smudges. Loaded with double the pigments of ordinary lipstick, one swipe goes a long way. You can trust this lipstick to last all night, without the need to reapply.

Maybelline Color Sensational Color Drama lipsticks are a hot comparison for the NARS Velvet Lip Pencils but at the fraction of the price. Both giving a long-lasting velvety finish and rich in pigment, we loved the nude selection and pinky tones most.

The matte-tastic pencil is available in 10 shades: 630 Nude Perfection, 140 Minimalist, 130 Love My Pink, 150 Fuchsia Desire, 420 In With Coral, 410 Fab Orange, 520 Light It Up, 510 Red Essential, 110 Pink So Chic, and 310 Berry Much for as little as $9.95.


For best results, apply around the lip line and lightly blend to the centre. Build the colour by applying a few layers and working product within creases.
