I purchased this lip pencil to wear with some of my new summer clothes. I don't have any light shades of lipstick so I thought I would give it a try. I love the color, but the forumula was not so good. It looks dry and flakey on the lips. The only time I can make it look decent is if I exfoliate and wear chapstick AND primer underneath. It does last quite a long time though and stayed on my lips even after eating.

It's a lovely colour. Horrible formula. Absolutely disgusting looking on the lips, always look dry and flakey. I am definitely returning this

I was at the NARS counter not planning to buy anything. I was testing some lipsticks and the MUA suggested I try Bolero on top of a bright pink lipstick I already had on. It looked good together. But when I use Bolero on its own, it looks to pastey and dry on my lips. I held onto the pencil but eventually returned it about 4 months later. The gloss pencils by NARS will probably be better for my lips.

I love this color on me. Unlike the previous reviewer, this looks like a light coral/tangerine on me. It's reallly matte, but not too much that it's corpse-like. It also has pretty decent staying power and fades evenly.For the price though, I wish it were a twist-up pencil. I hate sharpening but have to deal with it sometimes for products I like.

I wanted to write this review for all of the women who have the same problem with pink lipsticks that I do. I have very fair, warm skin but highly pigmented plum lips. I love the way that pastel pink lips look on me, but with my deep lip color it is hard to find a product that actually looks pastel pink on me. Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Bolero is perfect for creating a pastel pink lip on me. I get full coverage on my lips without applying large amounts of the product. I have never tried a matte lip pencil that wasn't drying, but this is not at all. With a bit of balm beneath it, it is very comfortable. There is no unpleasant smell or taste. The color does look a little bit "Barbie-ish" on the pencil, but when applied is a subtle, neutral pink.It is easy to create a casual pastel pink look by combining this with Nars Deep Throat Blush and Nars Baby Girl Eye Shadow. Chanel Glossimer Lip Gloss in Constellation adds a little sparkle. Wetting the eye shadow and applying it as an eye liner as well adds some definition.
