As beauty editors, we spend a lot of time on social media—some of the best products and trends are born there. And if our Instagram feeds have shown us anything, it’s that NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils are still having a moment. Yes, you already know and love them, but they won't be going anywhere anytime soon. Seen on some of our favorite beauty buffs from around the world, they’re a modern staple for a few reasons: The creamy formula provides major color payoff that won’t budge or leave your lips feeling dry, and the crayon-like shape makes application easy and precise—even on the go. The beloved collection includes 29 double-tap worthy shades, and we're dying to try them all.
