I’ve had this lipstick once before a few years ago, and I absolutely loved it, I knew I needed to pick another one up, but I’d just never got round to it.. My dad said he was popping to the Metro, I was like right, let’s just try this ~yeah dad, while you’re there pick me up Nars Cruella~.. He actually bloody did it SCORE, he says it was an Easter present, gosh, best I’ve ever had. ~note to self, ask him to pick more up from the metro~.
So seen as I have this beautiful lipstick back in my collection I thought it was only right to do a review on it, as it’s literally stunning. It’s the velvet matte lip pencil, in the shade Cruella, great name if you ask me because Cruella De Vil is a red lip type of lady ~she’s not real I know, but everyone knows who she is..~. But yes I love anything matte for the lips, as it normally stays on, this lipstick in general stays on for hours for me, after eating and all.
I’d describe the colour to be a deeper red, but I’d say the undertones are pretty neutral it’s neither cool or warm, so it would pretty much suit anyone. I’m also a fan of the fact that it’s a jumbo pencil because you get much more of a precise lip line.
Personally I love Nars’ packaging, I think it’s super sleek and luxurious feeling, yes you are paying more, but you get the quality. I do own a few Nars things, I have a couple of lipsticks, blushes, highlights & a palette, I think of them as a ‘treat yourself’ brand, defiantly not one I’d buy from everyday.
So I’ve done a photo shoot with it, as you can see below, I’m trying to get into taking pictures with props rather than just the product on it’s a bit more appealing to the eyes, let’s hope so anyway ~hahah~.
