NARS Velvet Matte and Satin Lip Pencil Reviews + Swatches

Every year during your birthday month, Sephora offers a free gift with a purchase during that month. Last year, Sephora offered a set of two NARS Velvet Matte and Satin Lip Pencils. I have fallen in love with lip pencils/crayons this year, so I was super excited to get this as a gift. I have been meaning to write this review since I first started my blog back in November, but I kept pushing this one to the back burner. Now, I have time to write about these lip pencils.

The first color is called Rikugien. It can be purchased here for $26. It is a sheer, rose pink color. When I first tried it out back in September when I got them, I was not a big fan of the color. I don’t usually like tinted lip glosses, so I just tucked it away. However, after trying it on again a few months later, I kind of started to like it. I figured it would be good to wear on a day where I’m just running out to the grocery store and don’t want to put on lipstick, but still want something with a little color. The formula for this lip pencil is very satiny. It wasn’t sticky and it went on smooth. That’s always a plus in my book!

The second color is Cruella. It can be purchased here for $26. If you know anything about me, you KNOW I love a good red lip and this color does not disappoint. I LOVE this shade of red. It is a scarlet red. However, what I did not like about this particular pencil is that it was extremely matte, which means it was very drying. Some mattes can be moisturizing, this one was not at all. In addition, the color faded quickly. I felt I had to keep reapplying it and I hate having to do that with my lipstick. For the quality of this matte lip pencil, I could never see myself paying $26. I literally only wear this lip pencil when I am going out for a really quick run.

Scroll down below to see pictures of the actual lip pencils and swatches of the colors.

What Are My New Beauty Faves?

Welcome to the first edition of my monthly favorite beauty products! I will do a post at the beginning of every month with a list of at least 5 new beauty products that I started using the previous month and fell in love with. Some of the products may have been previously reviewed on my blog throughout the month, so this can ensure you did not overlook any amazing products! I also think this is a cool way to introduce you to some products that you have never used or heard of, used and forgot about, or see that we have something in common because you use the same products as me! And there’s nothing better than that! So, without further ado, let’s start this list!

MAKE Face Gloss, $25

I have been raving about this product on my Instagram page and my blog since I was introduced to it in my November Birchbox. This product is so amazing! It is marketed as a highlighter. However, I use it as an all over face moisturizer and it really helps to keep my dry skin feeling fresh and moisturized. Click here to read an in depth review of this product.

Benefit Gimme Brow, $24

So, this product I have been sleeping on. It came as an added sample to a Sephora purchase a few months ago. I tried it once and never went back to use it until recently. I love how this product fills my brows in and makes them appear thicker. Click here to read my full review of this product.

Smith’s Rosebud Salve, $6

I use this as a lip balm and I love it. It keeps my lips moisturized for a good amount of time and I appreciate that. It can also be used as an all over body moisturizer…I haven’t used it for that purpose though. Click here to read my full review.

MBA Cosmetics Luxury Matte Lipstick in Salsa, $9.50

If you love a good red lip that is also matte, this is the one for you! It is a matte formula that is not in the least bit drying. It is also a true red. There’s no better combination for a lipstick than this. To read my full review of this lippie, click here.

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Amande, $29

I do not wear concealer very often. Honestly, I only wear it when I know I will be taking pictures for something special or going out for a special event. That’s neither here nor there though. I absolutely love this concealer. The liquid formula and the doe foot wand make application very easy. The liquid formula is also very blendable. I use a knockoff of a beauty blender to accomplish this. Head over to this page to read my full review.

What are some new beauty products that you started using last month? I’d love to know in the comments! 🙂

Top Coat, Concealer, and Lippie Review

I took a little trip to Sephora with my mind set on buying only a top coat and concealer. That’s it. The good news is that I bought those two items…the not so good news is I came out with a new lipstick and a GORGEOUS eyelash curler and mascara set. Get into my purchases now!

*Click on each photo to go to the product page.*


tarte Eyelash Curler and Mascara, $20

I didn’t need an eyelash curler or another mascara, butttttt when I saw this stunning curler, I just COULD NOT resist!!! It caught my eye and for 20 bucks for both, why not? The mascara is good, not great. It separated and lengthened my lashes and I ended up with a nice bright, wide-eyed look. This is the perfect mascara for a casual outing. I probably wouldn’t wear it for a night out. I haven’t used an eyelash curler in soooo long, but I definitely noticed a difference in my eyelashes after using it. I’ll definitely be using this more often. This stunning duo is a limited edition item at Sephora, so get it now before it’s too late!!


NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Amande, $29


One of my best friends recommended this concealer to me, so I thought I would try it and am I glad I did! This concealer sets on its own, it doesn’t crease, and it blends perfectly! The doe foot wand makes application easy. Definitely recommend this concealer! It comes in 10 shades so you really shouldn’t have a problem finding the perfect shade for your skin tone.


Nails, Inc. 45 Second Top Coat, $15

Before trying this product, I was using the Sally Hansen Fast Dry Top Coat in the red bottle. I thought it was an awesome product. My nails would be completely dry within 7 minutes or so. However, the shine wouldn’t last as long, but I kept using it because it was the quickest drying top coat and it was cheap. BUT, today, I came across this top coat and I will NEVER go back to the Sally Hansen one. Like the product advertises, my nails were dry to the touch in 45 seconds and COMPLETELY dry in 3 minutes and the shine is super glossy. No smudging from pressing my nails against something too long. No polish being pushed back at the tips from trying to pop the top off of something. Nothing! This top coat is a little pricey, but it is worth the splurge!


Bite Beauty Creme Lipstick Duo in Scarlet/Mulberry, $14

Left: Mulberry; Bottom right: Scarlet

This duo is AMAZING!!! The formula is super moisturizing! However, the color does fade after eating or drinking. The color payoff is opaque after two coats. Scarlet is my favorite. It is a dark blood red. Mulberry is also a beautiful wine color. This duo is perfect for mixing the two colors together or wearing them individually. The lipsticks are kind of small…so I’m sure I will get through these pretty quickly, as I intend for these to be my go to colors. This is another limited edition product, so make sure you get it before the holidays end!


Which of these products have you tried or will you be trying? Oh, and look for one of these products in a future giveaway!!
