NARS Satin Lip Pencils


I treasure my NARS lip pencils — Matte, Gloss and now Satin varieties. Within this repurposed NARS candle (how meta of me) are several tiny pencil nubs hidden from sight. It’s a very loved collection. Naturally, I was anticipating the launch of NARS Satin Lip Pencils and debated for hours over the exclusive Pinterest boards that debuted the collection. The reds looked perfect – and we know how I feel about NARS reds – but the pinks really spoke to me. And the neutrals? So MANY options. One more pink, another peach and of course a version with a cognac twist. So I was saying…hours? Yes, the life a NARS lip devotee. In a late night online spree, I ordered the shocking pink Yu, pinky nude Biscayne Park and the rose pink Rikugien. The colors are even prettier in person and feel smooth on lips. The Satin Lip Pencil is a happy medium between the Velvet Matte and Velvet Gloss fomulas. There’s nothing sheer about these, which I love. Yu is a major bright but surprisingly easy to wear, and apply. I can’t resist a staple nude, and Biscayne Park is just that. Rikugien fits into my spring lip wardrobe seamlessly — it’s fresh and rosy. To see swatches, click on over to my Instagram. As I lamented there, these have the potential to drain my beauty funds. Any recs on colors to try next?

    I’ve been reading so many amazing reviews on these. I love how I’ve been reading that they are pigmented and glossy! What a great combination 😛

    I recently reviewed the NARS Pressed Powder, if you like I would love if you checked it out 🙂
