NARS Cruella Velvet Matte Lip Pencil

Oh, Cruella, I love you so much! You’re my holy grail red lippie now, and I’m not afraid to shout it to the rooftops! You’re the red I’ve been waiting for. ❤

You may remember that I purchased this lip pencil on my work trip to NYC. Dragon Girl was out, so I decided to get this instead. It turned out to be a happy accident, because Cruella is the red lip for me!

What I like about Cruella is that it’s a bit darker than Ruby Woo and other blue-based reds that I have. I think the darker red is more flattering on my complexion.

Cruella is very long-lasting. The first time I wore it, I went to a wine and chocolate bar and it stayed on through two glasses of wine (which for me is a LONG time, because it takes me hours to drink it). It actually stayed on for about six hours that day, until I removed it! I didn’t experience any bleeding outside of the lip lines either.

As you can see from the swatches, Cruella is darker and not as bright as the rest of the swatches here.

NARS lip pencils are very comfortable to wear. They never dry out my lips (yay!) and don’t budge. I highly recommend these if you’re in the market for a long-lasting lip pencil, and especially recommend Cruella for the best red in the land! 🙂
