NARS DUPE AT THE DRUGSTORE?

Feb 12, 2015

When I heard that Maybelline had released new jumbo lip pencils I really wanted to try them. The first reviews where super convincing. How can you resist and not buy something the whole blogging world compare to the NARS velvet lip pencil? NARS is my favourite make up brand, I love their black packaging and I have never been disapointed by any of their products, especially their lip pencils which are to me the best on the market! Only problem ? 25 euros for a pencil. meh ... right? If I can get the same finish for a fraction of the price, I guess I can say that this product worse the hype.

Now let's start the review. The Maybelline Color Drama is a little bit smaller than the full size NARS Velvet lip pencils. They are super handy, and will allow you to get a precise finish. I picked up the color "Light it Up" which is a true red. The color is super opaque, just one layer is enough to really cover your lips. The consistancy is also really creamy and non drying even if the finish is matte, however as usual with anyting matte, I would recommend to exfoliate your lips because it might enhance any dry patches. The main con to me is that you have to sharpen it. I prefer the pencils that you can twist up; it's more hygenic and left the pencil way cleaner. Anyway, I totally recommend this product and it is in fact really comparable to the NARS one! Next buy? The mauvy shade "Keep it Classy"!

  7. Whoa this is so cool! Not sure if they've brought it out here yet but I would totally jump on that Maybelline one. The NARS pencils are simply too expensive to own more than one of xD
