NARS Bettina Lip Pencil



Not looking it's best because it's nearly a year old is my NARS matte lip pencil in shade Bettina.
It's the only lip pencil I own and it's undoubtedly made me want to go out and buy an entire collection.

I've been wearing Bettina as both a lip liner and all over the lips on its own, it's a gorgeously soft beigey-pink shade that is both easy and long wearing.
Unlike a lot of matte lipsticks I own (MAC, I'm looking at you...) this doesn't dry my lips out at all, and they don't look horrendously cracked within a couple of hours.
The staying power is hmm, alright, but when it does wear away, it wears away good. It doesn't leave an outline of colour around the rim of your lips, nor does it turn patchy, it wears away very evenly and subtly until re-applied.

The pencil point takes a while to run down before it needs sharpening (which I HATE doing and it usually breaks the sharpener I use, which is the only downside to this product.) If you have any tips of sharpening these please leave me a comment!

If you're after an easy to wear, warm nude lip that you can throw on in a rush with any outfit for any day, Bettina is for you, at a cost of £19.00 of course. (I totally agree with anyone that thinks that's over-priced by the way.)

  1. Gorgeous shade! Love the NARS Lip Pencils, but have to agree that they're rather pricey!

    1. If they came with a specially made sharpener it would be totally worth it!

  2. I love nude colours, so I need to try this, especially as lipsticks usually dry my lips out

  4. This shade looks gorgeous. I have been rocking their Cruella lip pencil non-stop recently, but I'll have to try this out for a nude option. Thanks for the review! x
