NARS Lip Pencil Review

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas or non denominational winter holiday. I received these from my brother:

These are five great colours consisting of 3 Satin looks and 2 matte looks.

First up is this festive dark red, Cruella (matte)

Going lighter and a bit more orange toned, Iberico (matte)

These pencils are great for accuracy. They wear like a lipstick but with the accuracy of a liner and no where near as drying. The satin finish gives a bit of a sheen, whilst still being highly pigmented. They are by no means sheer. And the mattes also manage the nearly impossible feat of looking matte without drying your lips. They’re comfy enough to wear all day and they are food proof, meaning the colour withstands a good meal.

I love these pencils and highly recommend them to anyone who wants a lipstick and liner in one.

My favourite YouTube Beauty Gurus

I don’t watch many makeup videos on YouTube tbh, but when I do, its one of these guys.

First up is my girl Camila Coelho. Her English channel is MakeUpByCamila2. She is Brazilian so most of her videos are in Portuguese but she does separate ones for her English speaking fans. My favourite of her tutorials is the Valentine’s Day look

Next is Huda Kattan. A beauty blogger based in Dubai who posts killer makeup and beauty tips. My favourite video is her Lipliner Tutorial where she goes over the basics any girl needs if she want to learn the secrets of overlining (alla Kylie Jenner)

I learnt most of my makeup skills from drag queens, so its no surprise that my favourite makeup tutorials are by drag queens such as Vivienne Pinay, Miss Fame and Fendi Laken

Of course, if you aren’t a drag queen you can skip a lot of the stages in the videos, and you don’t have to be as exaggerated with your makeup, but they are a really good source of tips and inspiration.

Happy YouTubing!
