It’s not hard to figure out why NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($25) is an Allure Best of Beauty Award Winner. It’s a lipstick and a lip pencil all-in-one. Combining the convenience of a pencil with the application of a lipstick in a jumbo-sized crayon design, these pigment-rich sticks provide a matte, creamy finish that will not dry the lips. Enriched with emollients, vitamin E, and silicone, each gorgeous shade glides on and stays put. With fourteen (and counting) colors to choose from, the perfect hue for you won’t be hard to find. Tip: Exfoliate your lips and moisturize before using. This will allow for the color to go on evenly. Don’t expect to get beautiful results if you start with dry, chapped lips.
