Before 2015 started, I vowed to be more successful, courageous, persistent, stronger, and more assertive. I think I found the perfect lip color for my goals and my year, and it's Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl. You know what? Maybe I should start this project called "Lipstick Of The Year": Every year, I will have my very own IT lip color just like Pantone having their IT color for each year-sounds like a cool thing to do! :)


Nars Lip Pencils were made to be slimmer and more compact versions of traditional lipsticks. It comes in three finishes: Velvet Matte, Satin, and Velvet Gloss. FYI, Dragon Girl is one of Taylor Swift's (yes, that Blank Space singer) favorite red lipstick shades.

 Dragon Girl is a vivid siren red shade with a soft matte finish.

The moment I wore Dragon Girl, I was like "Whoa, what an empowering shade!" It's the kind of red that's bright, almost neon, and truly fiery that you immediately feel a surge of energy in your veins when you wear it, and it's a great feeling! Another awesome thing about Dragon Girl is it doesn't dry out my lips due to its Vitamin E- enriched formula.

So let me enumerate why Dragon Girl is my official red lipstick for 2015:

1. It's an energizing red.
2. It's rare to find a bright red that doesn't appear irritatingly flashy.
3. I was born in the year of the Dragon and I love Red lipstick, and there couldn't be any more perfect lipstick for me than this.
4. I have developed a liking for Taylor Swift's 'Blank Space' lately. (Does this count?)

I have been wearing this for almost three weeks straight now--I love this babeh-it's now up there in my roster of SuperDuperAwesomesauce Red Lipsticks. Of course I will repurchase!

10 Lovely Thoughts

  1. This looks so amazing and flattering on you! Love it!

  2. I agree with you Ms. M, just by looking at your photo I can see that it gives a different aura in you. You look powerful yet sweet. It captures attention :)
    As for me, I think I'll go for a different shade. :)

  3. Wow! Your lips is simply stunning with that shade! Love that idea of having "Lipstick of the Year". With that we can be more determined to reach whatever our goals are. :)

  4. WOW! beautiful red color! I've been waiting so long for this review because i wanted to purchase this product mainly because of its bright red color and... Taylor Swift!! ahaha!! it's already next on my list! xoxo ♥

  5. W-O-W!!! you're so stunning here ms m! i love nars!!! (i just find the price bit steep for my budget *sigh*) the only items that i have tried from Nars are blush and lippie!

    Nars in Deep Throat! every body rave about this and lucky i got the chance to own one.. (it already hit pan so im just looking for a dupe of it.. and found ELF Candid Coral as the cheapest dupe of it (and found another from Wet n Wild in 831E Pearlescent Pink Rose)

    Nars in Joyous Red! Ever since I got this lipstick I’ve been wearing it every chance I get. I could describe it as a deep, muted, amber red with a semi-matte finish.

    and really i love that NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil inDragon Girl (for my love of mattes) it costs much but i cant keep on searching this one on google after reading your review!

  6. Right in time for the Chinese New Year! :) You're right about the Nars Velvet Matte Pencil in Dragon Girl. It doesn't look loud or unnatural. I agree that red is still the best shade to wear because it is closest to the real color of our lips. You achieved a very sophisticated, feminine look! Wow, you gave Dragon Girl an almost perfect rating!

    And yes, #4 counts! :D I've come to appreciate Taylor Swift owing to Louisa Wendorff and Devin Dawson's mashup of "Blank Space" and "Style".

  7. Oh my! Ang fierce!!
    Parang ready-to-take-on-anything look pero hindi masyado intimidating haha. Glad you have found your Lipstick of the Year! :)

    PS How does this compare with Bobbi Brown Art Stick? :>

  8. I am a certified swifty! That's why I like red lipstick more than everything else. :) I super love this shade from Nars! Super sexy, it brings out the youth in us. It's not the malanding kind of red. :)

  9. Can't blame you for loving this lippie. It looks great! :)

  10. The shade that you used looks good on you! You look FAB!
    Personally, I love the NARS velvet matte lip pencils for the comfortable matte finish in my lips.
    I love how these pencils are silky, saturated, and generally perfect when i use it. One swipe and I'm done.
    The longer I use it the more beautiful it gets! It stays on my lips for long hours even after I had a meal that's why I love NARS so much.
    I had the shade CRuella and I get a lot of compliments every single time I wear it.
    I really love that its not like the other lipsticks where I need to re-apply every now and then. I recommend to try out NARS lip pencils ladies!
