I was given this sample of the Nars Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil in New Lover a while ago when I got my Clarisonic in Sephora. I found it around 6 weeks ago when have a bit of a beauty spring clean and I absolutely fell in love with it.
I don't know how I didn't realize it sooner but this is the perfect every day lip colour. I feel like this is said all too often in the blogosphere but is really is that my-lips-but-better shade.
It is like a strawberry pink with a little gold shimmer through it. I believe some people compare it to Nars Orgasm blusher in colour but I cannot comment as I do not own it (although I may have to go and get it now if this is anything to go by!) The formula of this is also gorgeous. The texture is buttery smooth and moisturising - described by Nars as "velvet". It is not too soft that it melts but it glides over your lips leaving just enough of that glossy translucent colour to make your lips perfect and ever so slight bee stung. It lasts a decent amount of time too - I normally only retouch once in the day around lunchtime and given this doesn't claim to be a long wear product I think that's pretty decent. I like the fact that it comes in stick form as it is easy to reapply on the go.
P.S. Apologies for the poor quality pictures I just snapped them quickly on my phone.
