I love lipstick, and I love lip gloss.
Lipstick + lip gloss in one? Yes please!
NARS Velvet Gloss Pencils promise the best of both worlds. The convenience of a pencil, and the hydration of a gloss.
Frivolous is described as an iridescent seashell pink. It is the lightest of the colors offered, and is exactly what I was looking for.
It is a soft neutral pink with iridescent pink shimmer, which is very subtle. It adds a soft healthy look to bare lips, or adds some shine when used over a lipstick.
They are unscented, but do have a faint waxy smell that disappears almost immediately. It isn't strong enough to bother me, but sensitive noses beware. The formula is light with a hint of stickiness. Just enough stickiness to keep it on for a few hours, but not so much that it feels goopy. Not hair getting caught on a windy day sticky. It truly feels like a gloss/lipstick hybrid.
I love the formula, and will definitely consider picking up another color or two. Check *KarlaSugar* and *TheBeautyLookBook* for swatches of all of the colors.
