Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil

Matte Lips are certainly becoming a regular look for myself, I adore these jumbo sized Lip Stick Pencils. They are great for carrying around and easy to apply and they have staying power which is a BIG bonus for me. I don't always get time throughout the day to touch up my makeup being a busy mummy of 2 little cherubs so long lasting makeup has now become a requirement.

 Bolero is a gorgeous neon pink peach shade and is described as 'Pink Cantaloupe' on the Nars website. I haven't see a shade similar to this on the market, it has a unique neon look almost I think. This is such a stunning shade for the summer, I've been loving this on the lips with a soft bronze eye, the two work so well together. I find that by applying a little lip balm first on the lips is then a great base for the matte lip pencil.

  Enriched with Vitamin E
Super soft and easy to apply

Here's a pic showing you my look using Bolero.

LinkBolero is available from Space N.K and Nars Website online costing £17.50, this is a stunning gorgeous shade.
