    Dragon Girl! You go, girl!

    This is for Dragon Girl only; the iconic red lipstick that makes its way onto top-pick lists everywhere. I give top marks for this pencil's ease of application, color pay-off and length of wear. Even with a dull point, this was still really easy to apply and precise (a sharper point is obviously better, though). I got a good 3-4 hours of wear with eating, LOTS of chatting, and a pretty decent a...read moremount (ok...a lot) of drinking going on. I do use MAC's Prep & Prime Lip (which is also uh-maze-ing!) religiously with pretty much any lipstick I wear, so I can't say with certainty how this would perform without that. My minus one star comes from how it feels on my lips. I find it to be kind of drying and not as smooth as I would like it to be. After a couple hours of wear, I can see those little lipstick+lip flakes you get when you wear a drying lipstick. Now granted, there aren't as many flakes as there might be with a less awesome lipstick, but there are still some none-the-less. I expected complete flawlessness, and I didn't get it. It is quite possible my expectations were a little too high. Anyways, with that said, this is still a pretty amazing lip product and definitely worthy of the hype. I also really do think this would work on a variety of skin tones, I can see it being a perfect universally flattering red. — 1 week, 3 days ago

    A long time favorite.

    I first read about NARS Cosmetics in an internet article - one of those "best beauty finds" stories. It mentioned the NARS Matte Lip Pencil. The recommended color was "Roman Holiday" so I ordered one from Sephora along with Cruella and Bettina. I was truly surprised! It's just a big, fat, lip crayon (NOT a liner). Very sturdy, and the color glides on and covers like lipstick, but has a velvety tex...read moreture like...well, almost like ChapStik. It will last for many hours and DOES NOT "pill" like lipstick (which I have grown to hate very much). The ingredients must be gentle because my lips feel soft even after the color has worn away. The "Roman Holiday" color is a shiny, pale pink. I decided to try "Sex Machine." Nice color, but too "mauve" for me, no shine. These pencils are a MUST-HAVE for any gal's make up bag. And NARS customer service is one the best EVER to work with! Yes, they may be a little pricey, but I think it's worth it. I did read a review from someone who gave this product a low rating because they couldn't get the pencil sharpened. NARS sells a multi-product sharpener ($6) that sharpens 3 or 4 of their different pencils. The wrap of the Matte Lip Pencil is VERY thick, and must be sharpened slowly or it will be ruined. Keep this in mind when it's time to sharpen your pencil. And don't forget to remove the adapter that's stuck in the hole for the lip pencil! — 1 year, 1 month ago

    love it!

    I highly recommend this. The color is very rich, I also like the quality. The only thing I don't like is the price is a little bit high. — 1 year, 9 months ago
