“I wanted to create a modern way to wear a very classic matte lip. The creaminess of the texture makes them very easy to wear.”—François Nars, Founder and Creative Director of NARS Cosmetics
“Lips are all about fun. Virtually every color can work on everyone. Paired with a soft eye, even the darkest or brightest shade of lip color can create a striking makeup look on its own. With lips, more than any other features, I follow a no rules approach.”—François Nars
“Using these as a base for any other lip product makes your color wear much longer. They glide on super easy and stay put!”—Lisa LeSeur, NARS National Makeup Stylist
“I love using Velvet Matte Lip Pencils together to create dimension on the lip—try one shade for lining and another for filling in.”—Shayna Shapiro, NARS Lead Trainer
