Today I’m excited to share a more old school type of blog post where I share a review and swatches of one of my more recent beauty purchases, the NARS Matte Lipstick Pencil in Intriguing. I always love these types of posts when I’m searching the internet for cosmetics, so I’m excited to “pay it forward” if you will and write posts with basic facts about the color and formula of products (like I did with Chanel’s lipstick in Merry Rose).
The pictures shows Intriguing looks on my lips without any other lip color or lip liner. I did use a primer to help with longevity and to neutralize my natural lip color, which means that this is the color of the lipstick that anyone would get if they prime their lips no matter how pigmented their lips naturally are.
I like the rosy color of Intriguing, and that it isn’t too pink. I call it a nude rose. Also, if you are wondering, another day I wore it without priming my lips first and then it veered into a more rosy red color.
The Matte Lipstick Pencil formula lasts for several hours without eating or drinker, and it’s easy to reapply since the pencil fits in any sized purse. It also layers nicely, meaning it doesn’t get too caked or start to pill. The only draw back is that the formula is rather drying, but I think that can be said of any matte formula.
Overall I’d give it a 4/5, which is a pretty high review from me! I really liked the nude rose color of Intriguing, and the fact that you get two colors in one depending on whether or not you prime your lips. Plus the pencil is so convenient to carry around for touchups and makes for an easy application process as well.
Have you tried any new lipstick you really liked lately? I’m all ears!
