Beauty VIP of the Week: NARS New Lover Velvet Gloss Pencil

I’ve documented my obsession with NARS Velvet Gloss Pencils on a few occasions, and I thought I’d follow-up. Because many months later, I’m still obsessed! Of all the lip products released this year – and there have been many – I think these might be my favorite. I remain fascinated with the gloss in pencil format and am seriously impressed with the staying power. And they never dry out my lips. It’s just an awesome lip gloss.

Currently, I’m really hot to trot for the shade New Lover. It’s a strawberry pink with flashes of gold that is supposed to mimic the look of overly kissed lips. It’s the “official lip color” of summer, at least for me! It leans a little coral, which I love. I’ve been going the light makeup route in the extreme heat, and New Lover makes me feel put together. This one is worth your hard-earned dollars, ladies. Especially if you want to fool people into thinking you just had a hot romp in the middle of the day. Get yourself a New Lover!
