I am the proud owner of quite a few NARS  matte lip pencils but in the past I’ve only really gone matte for red and now I’m really enjoying wearing more neutral mauve shades in a matte formula. I decided to pick up a new NARS velvet matte lip pencil but this time in the shade ‘Bahama’. It’s a beautiful shade that sits somewhere between a rosey brown and a mauve. It’s right up my street and less pink than MAC ‘Mehr’ so a bit more on trend.

The Velvet Matte Lipsticks are long wearing but not drying on the lips. Some shades are more drying than others but I found this one to be really comfortable. There’s not much else to say, the photos do all the talking. It’s £20 and available at Space NK.

    This shade is the perfect browny rose tone!
    Suits you very nicely.


  2. I have to say that the velvet lip pencils are so creamy and almost feel non existent, I love them!

    It really suits you but am I the only one who is getting a little tired of the 90’s lip? I have spent all week with bright pink lipstick on!

    I don’t have any NARS products yet, and can’t wait to get my hands on some. This is such a beautiful colour, it’s so deep and vibrant

    Steph –

    Wow this shade is simply stunning! The matte effect does look great and it is less bold than with a red, so maybe more wearable. I have to get one of these Nars pencils, and this colour is different from everything I own so it would make a nice addition to my collection! 🙂

  23. Cassie says:

    That’s such a beautiful shade! I wish I got on better with the Nars pencils, but unfortunately they’re a bit drying on my lips.

  24. Rebecca Day says:

    This color looks amazing! I have a few of the Nars pencils and I don’t hate them, but I always seem to forget about them. I will definitely be pulling out a few of my favorite shades this weekend! Thanks for the inspiration!

  25. Cloud Esmé says:

    This is the sort of colour I steer towards as I’ve usually got too much food planned for a red lip! Suits you really well:)

    I adore that colour! It looks really good on you as well 🙂 x

  27. Joules says:

    That lip color looks great on you! I love lip pencils in general because I feel like they look a bit more natural than lipstick.

    This lip colour is gorgeous! I also love the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils in the red variety (most likely in part thanks to you and Anna!) but this colour is beautiful. I might just need to add this to my collection as well! xx

    This shade is absolutely beautiful! It reminds me of most of the lipsticks in my collection, I always tend to go for this type of shade at the moment, so pretty 🙂

    This shade really suits you, it looks brilliant with your dark hair as well. Haven’t tried any of the matte lip pencils from Nars but I have tried the Satin version and I’m a fan!

  31. Such a lovely color! Not too browny and suits you perfectly, I find 🙂 Myself, I probably wouldn’t go for a red lip color, but I really want to try these range from Nars!
