NARS Dragon Girl Velvet Matte Lip Pencil

There's a special place in my heart for Nars Dragon Girl. My first red lipstick, the one that started a verging on obsessive, craving for red lipstick. To-date I have around a dozen red lipsticks in a variety of brands and finishes but Nars Dragon Girl is my undeniable favorite.

 It's a firey red, almost impossibly bright, and although it has a pink undertone it's reads as definite red on me. Although the brightness and pink-tone might make it seem more summer appropriate, I find the color so flattering, I wear it all the time, all year round. In winter when I look all pale and dead-like, sometimes I think that the brightness is what I need! I mean, I might be totally making this up to appease myself... but what's not to like? Perfect color, perfect formula, and even the name makes me feel a little cooler.

Yes, perfect formula! The Nars Velvet Matte pencils are the best matte lipstick formula I have tried. Despite being a 100% matte finish they're creamy, soft, and lightweight. They glide on with a perfectly even finish, dont stick to dry patches, and wear for hours and hours. Honestly, even if you aren't a fan of mattes, it's impossible to find fault in this formula.
Not to mention they're a good value. I've had this pencil for two years and have only had to sharpen it a handful of times. I mean it's not an everyday color, but considering it's my most used red I think that's pretty impressive.

I've tried many times to do this post, but I've never been satisfied with how it's turned out ('til this time). It's so difficult to accurately capture this lipstick, from the brightness, the slight pink-tone to the velvety finish. It's something that has to be experienced in person, but it's worth the trip!
