I don't often wear light colors on my lips. I'm more of a red or deep wine girl, but I really like this color for my less "dramatic" days. It seems to last all day. My only complaint is it's difficult to find a sharpener to fit it. The NARS sharpener is too small.

I was gifted this from my mum since she didn't use it much - I was a bit shocked that my very conservative mother bought a lip colour called 'Sex Machine' (gasp!) but I'm thrilled she let me have this otherwise very expensive product!
Similar to the chubby pencil lip colours at the moment, this is in an easy-to-apply chunky pen form and features a lid so you can throw this in your handbag and not worry about leakage or mess. When used, the product 'melts' from the soft pencil on contact with skin so it applies ultra-smooth yet still wonderfully matte and not the least bit drying. With my NW20 skin and very pink-red pigmented lips, this is a gorgeous dusty rose with a touch of plum colouring - not a shade I'd pick off the shelf in a store, but it's incredibly flattering with my colouring and ideal for the cooler winter months when I move away from the coral lipsticks and prefer an everyday, neutral lip for school.
The lasting power is excellent - it wears for at least a couple of hours (maybe more if you're not eating or drinking) but I do need to touch up or reapply after meals. The only annoyance: yes, this does need to be sharpened with an extra-large sharpener every few uses. I picked a dual one up from Space NK which has been ideal - they are comparitively inexpensive and can be found in most specialist beauty stores for a small price.
I had been ignoring this product for a few months, but I'm thrilled to have rediscovered it just in time for the impending winter months - I'll be sure to get plenty of use out of this and will no doubt repurchase!

I am obsessed with this MLBB shade. The staying power is excellent too. However, I hate having to sharpen this pencil and the quantity it comes with isn't that much to sharpen it all away. I'm also done with mine and I haven't even had it that long. Hello Nars, please change this to a twist up.
Dupe alert: MUFE matte #5 is very close to this, but it's so matte you need to put it over a lip balm. I still prefer the Nars, but it's nice to have something that is a close second in retractable packaging

I bought this color thinking it's kind of a my-lips-but-better color, but its so much more than that. I love the mauve tones in it which make the pink-rosey color a little more edgy. I can wear this color for all occasions and it'll look great (more natural or more vamped up). I love that its easy to carry around and applies easily since its a pencil but I also hate this aspect of it. It is the same price as a Nars lipstick but comparatively there is less product and you have to keep sharpening it! So not only is the sharpening part a hassle, but you are sharpening away product EVERY TIME!! I guess I wasn't using a very good sharpener at first because it broke off the tip a few times and I basically wasted a good amount of the pencil. I went and bought a Nars sharpener so I could finally sharpen it without it breaking. It makes me sad every time I see some of the product going into the garbage when I sharpen but it is what it is. If they made this color in lipstick form I would be ecstatic! This pencil glides on easily and smoothly but its not very moisturizing. So basically, I love the color, ok texture but hate the packaging.

I love wearing this with super dark eyes. I have a hard time finding lighter lip colors that don't completely wash me out, and this is one of my favorites. It's smooth, non drying, and looks soft and feminine while still making my lips stand out and perking up my pale complexion.

I absolutely love how subtle this colour looks on my NC 40/ NC 42 skin! I just wished i didn't had to sharp it all the time although that's my only complaint. This lip pencil glides on smoothly on my lips and gives my lips a beautiful matt finish.

This is my daily lipstick. Its so neutral on my NC42 Skin with a touch of pink.
My lips are extremely pigmented to begin with and I've always had problems finding a lipstick/lipgloss that works. This one is amazing. I dont even need to use my 'MAC's stripdown Lip pencil" first - its that pigmented
Only issue is that you have to buy a special Nar's sharpener if you wanted a precise tip.but its not crazy expensive

Love love love this product, I only wish it was little moisturizing. Love this shade so much, perfect everyday pink. I am on my 2nd pencil now.

a bit more mauve than i would have liked. will finish the pencil but i have to top it with a rosier gloss to make it work for my face. for ref. i am C4 winter/NC42 summer. On my pigmented lips this comes out a bit too purple/cool toned. Loving the color payoff though and chubby stick lip pencils are the best! Will not repurchase. I bought Dolce Vita also and i am LOVING the DV!

Awesome pinky mauve pencil that does not have a lot of purple. The SA at the NARS Boutique in Greenwich Village recommended this color on me. Love to mix it with a bronzey gloss. Only minus is that it's in pencil form, and I have to sharpen it at least 1X a week. Otherwise, this is the perfect color for me.
