I hope you all are doing well.. Although its summer and we tend to gravitate towards bright & bold colors, I was instantly drawn to this velvet matte lip pencil in ‘Damned’ by NARS.. Its a gorgeous wine-burgundy color (Magenta as the website describes it).. Best of all, its a Matte finish that almost goes on with a velvety feel!! – hence the name I guess… Its great that it leaves behind a matte finish which means it has great staying power.. 🙂
It can be worn lightly like a lip stain or can be amplified into a rich deep burgundy shade..
Retails for $25.00 USD.. Here are some swatches..
In the images below, I have worn it as a lip stain.. haven’t really added layers to deepen the color since I like to be fairly light-handed.. For those who like a lip product to be versatile, this can be a great one..
You can always top this off with additional layers of the product or layer it with a lip gloss of choice..
Overall, I am very pleased with this color and am a fan of NARS velvet matte lip pencils in general (I have other colors too)..
Have a great rest of the week.. 🙂
