The Only Red Lip Pencil You Need

NarsAnyone who knows me knows that I don't wear a ton of make-up. I very much prefer a fresh-faced look complemented by a sleek ponytail or a halo of tamed curls. But who doesn't want something completely mistake-proof to seamlessly transition her from a day at the office-or in my case, a day spent dashing between appointments and cover shoots-to impromptu outings with friends? Enter Nars's Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella, which is the most perfect fire-engine red for evening. You just draw on your lip and save for the occasional touch up. It stays put without smudging. Awesome.

Purchase the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella for $25 at amazon.com.
