The Dragon Girl Velvet Matte lip pencil by NARS is described as “vivid siren red.” This is one of my absolute favorite things at the moment. It is a beautiful, bright, pinkish-red. Wearing it alone, it almost looks like a stain on the lips, but is not at all drying. It is enriched with Vitamin E and just glides on and stays on.

This pencil wears alone on me for about 4 hours without touch up. I topped it with the NARS Norma Lip Gloss here and it stayed through a whole work day with just a little bit of feathering around the edges. I can see this shade of red being flattering on several skin tones, and can be worn alone or under another lip product to change the look.
If you are even considering picking this up, I would say go for it! Keep in mind though, this color is not for the faint of heart… you will definitely get noticed! I normally don’t really wear a bright red lip, but I am LOVING this. 😀
