NARS: Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Roman Holiday Review & Swatches

The Roman Holiday Velvet Matte lip pencil is described as “delicate pastel pink.” It is a beautiful semi-sheer cotton candy pink. Like the other Velvet Matte pencils, this is enriched with vitamin E and won’t dry out your lips.

I found myself having to apply more layers of this than some of the other Velvet Matte pencils to get the color to show up on me. I don’t necessarily think this is less pigmented than the others – I just think it was too light for me. This would look beautiful on my fair-skinned friends with a light wash of pink blush, and  pale blue &/or silver on the eyes .

Wearing Roman Holiday

I do like wearing this alone or with NARS Lip Gloss in Turkish Delight on top for a soft look.
