Looking for a comparable lip color to NARS Bolero

I love the color of NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Bolero.  However, I have recently returned the item because it is so drying on my lips.  Even with lip primer or gloss, my lips simply cannot handle how dry it is.  Can you please recommend the closest color to this item in a lipstick?  I would like to find a lipstick (not gloss) as close as possible to Bolero (not gloss) but one that is not so matte or drying.


Thanks to anyone who can help!  Smiley Wink

NARS "Lipstick" (Sephora Product Page) is very pure and creamy and enriched with vitamin E to increase wearability and not dry out lips. The shades "Napoli" (sheer pinkish beige) is the closest lipstick shade I know of to the shade "Bolero," though "Napoli" might be slightly more peachy.
