NARS Sex Machine Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Swatches & Review

Do you fancy yourself as a sex machine? No? Well maybe after you put on NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Sex Machine you will feel that way. Cheesy enough for ya? ;)

This is my first ever experience with a NARS lip product and so far, I’m happy. I know, where have I been?

I mentioned before how much I love the lip pencil idea because it’s so easy and combines a lip liner and lipstick all in one jumbo pencil . What’s not to love about that?

The color is a medium pink mauve with tiny silver shimmer particles inside. The formula is SUPER creamy and amazing. No chalkiness or dryness here. It applies much like a lipstick would and has a fairly matte finish (hence the name) but not totally flat. I love how saturated the color is, the swatch above is just one swipe. The pencil is infused with vitamin E and emollients which helps keep it creamy and non-drying.

Overall:

For me this is a perfect pink color. I love the formula, love the packaging and will definitely consider buying more. There are two drawbacks I see. The pencil isn’t that long so I could see if I used it a lot, it would disappear pretty quickly. Also this baby ain’t cheap, so I think I’ll try using her more sparingly.

Have you tried any of these yet?

    It looks really nice on you; is the formula better than Milani’s?

      Hi Arlyn,

      It’s a little creamier and more opaque going on. The one I tried from Milani is on the sheerer side so I had to apply more to get the color depth I wanted. This one is like butter and more matte than glossy.

    I love the color! Is the shimmer really blingy in person? Would you consider it OK for everyday wear?

      Hi Christina,

      No it’s verrrrry subtle and it’s definitely ok for everyday wear. You could really see the shimmer on my hand swatch more than my lips.

      Hi Styrch,

      Yay! I haven’t yet tried it with a gloss on top but plan to. Do you have any other colors?

    I love it when you show shades on your lips. Because we have very similar coloring, I really get an idea of what they’d look like on me. I love Nars, but haven’t tried this product, might have to add it to my shopping list.

    Did you get a new haircut? Your photo is different, maybe I missed a post, eek! Regardless, looks great!

      Hi Winnie,

      Yep I chopped it off again :)

    I love that color on you. It does look PERFECT with your complexion!

    I’ve tried this and wrote a review of it a few months back – like you I thought the formula was nice, but I hated the colour itself. Normally mauve-based pinks look fine on me, but Sex Machine just looked flat and awful and super 80’s. :(

    It sounds good. More matte than glossy. Does it have good longevity though? Why aren’t more companies doing these?

    I like matte finishing in lips, and this one have a very subtle shimmer.

    I love these lip pencils. I really loved Stila’s Lip Glaze Sticks ($15), but they’ve been discontinued.

    I like this type of pencil. Pretty shade on you.
