|NARS - Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella - $34|
This is becoming a pretty iconic colour in the beauty world. I'm not trying to brag, but I have two. I bought the one above for when Jamie came back to Australia. I wanted something sexy, but kiss proof. Turns out, not so kiss proof, but still incredible. I got my second in the Digital World Christmas Lip Pencil Set they brought out.

I am 100% on the bandwagon with this. It's such a stunning classic red lip shade. The formula is amazing and although may not be completely kiss proof it's pretty good at staying on for a long time and lasts fairly well through eating and drinking.
It contains vitamin E to stop it being too drying but I still find it a little drying so if you have ultra dry lips you may not get a long very well with this one. I would still give it a go, or stop by Mecca or your local NARS counter and talk to them about it because maybe one of the non-matte Lip Pencils would be better. I love the other colours in the digital world set, my only gripe being that Descanso and Torres Del Paine are very similar. Seeing as it isn't available anymore I wouldn't review the set but I'll mention that all the colour and formulas are pretty good. The Satin Lip Pencils are much creamier and glossier, as expected, and are definitely less drying than the Velvet Matte Lip Pencils.
NARS is absolutely one of my favourite make up brands. Definitely one that I use to treat myself with as it's a little pricey, Cruella is $34 on the Mecca website.
