Quite a while back I was sent the NARS Velvet Lip Gloss Pencil in Buenos Aires to review. It’s a moisturizing lip pencil that’s described as a nude beige pink.

Buenos Aires is a conveniently designed jumbo glossy lip pencil. It’s very moisturizing. It’s not long wearing and lasts no more than a couple of hours on me. I like the color,though sometimes I feeel it’s a touch too pale on me and other times I feel like it looks great. I think it’s definitely best to wear it when you’ve got bold eyes.
What do you think of Buenos Aires? Would you wear it?
Product sent for consideration. All opinions are my own.

Love the color, I definitely would wear it – as long as it was not TOO pale on me… I don’t look good with super pale nudes. I like pencil-style lip products a lot, I just find them really convenient for busy mornings (which, let’s be honest, is pretty much every morning for most of us)
Catherine bcf I love pencil styles, too
I probably wouldn’t wear it; I much prefer berry colored lippies for this time of year!
EmmyJean I definitely feel the draw towards berries and darks this time of year. I keep thinking about popping out NARS Carthage though! Bright pink to defy the dark
I like the color! If it’s not long lasting, makes me think twice about purchasing. I love my Revlon Balm Stains! Those suckers are amazing and so cheap!
Julie_Park I do like the Revlon ones, but Revlon is no longer CF for me. NARS is CF. So while I’ll use up the Revlon pencils I have in this style, I wouldn’t repurchase them.
