Nars Satin Lip Pencils02

Nars Satin Lip Pencils ($25) are part of another winning launch. Just released on Nars online and Nars boutiques (New York City, Los Angeles, and San Francisco). These have also appeared on, and will soon be in stores and makeup counters everywhere.

Like Nars Velvet Matte and Nars Velvet Shine pencils, these are chubby sticks that apply with rich color. Named for beautiful parks from around the world, the thirteen colors are:

Het Loo:  cognac

Floralies: light apricot

Isola Bella: peach beige

Lodhi: vibrant coral

Biscayne Park: pink guava

Rikugien: rose pink

Golshan: spiced wine

Majella:  garnet

Luxembourg: vivid watermelon

Hyde Park: cardinal red

Palais Royal: sangria

Yu:  shocking pink

Jardin des Plantes: fuchsia (this color available at Nars boutiques and Nars online only)

We found that the line has a nice selection of nudes and neutrals, but enough brights to keep us happy. We’re working our way through the testing, and we’ll have more complete reviews throughout the next few days. These work with the standard Nars sharpener, or any other sharpener that accommodates a larger pencil.

 Here are some quick swatches in different lighting (click to enlarge):

Although we’re still playing, so far our “must have” picks are Lodhi, Majella, Luxenbourg, and Yu. These feel moisturizing on first application for the first several minutes. As you can see, these have plenty of rich, beautiful color.

Compared to other Nars lip pencil releases, the Nars Satin Lip Pencils did not have any scent or taste. One more swatch set:

We’ll get some lip images up soon, so that you can see the texture as applied. As you might expect from the name, these have a satin texture (rather than glossy or matte, as with the other Nars chubby pencil lines). Click to enlarge:

  1. I can’t wait to get my hands on a few of these! I’ve been eyeing Biscayne Park and Luxembourg. I swatched them at Nordstrom last weekend and they seem lovely. Just fyi, I think some of the names are off in the last swatch picture. It shows Golshan twice and is missing Palais Royale.

    • Thanks Tiffany–fortunately I was able to swap out the last picture for a new one with the proper names! I’m surprised how much I like these. Cheers and thanks for your comment! 🙂

  2. I have Lodhi and I’m really in love with the shade and formula! The only thing(s) that I am not 100% sure about is having to sharpen it. Also, the tip is SO soft that I have real doubts about carrying one around in warm weather. Before I can make sure Lodhi is not going to melt when summer comes, I might refrain from purchsing another spring/summer color. I already know I’ll want Majella when autumn is back though 🙂

  3. Great things! Waiting for your lip swatches so much, I like all the right starting from Majella, except Yu…
    I would think Luxembourg and Palais Royale would be my top-2)))

  4. I have all eyes on Lodhi, Jardins des Plantes, Yu, Hyde Park, and Luxembourg!

  5. So beautiful! Thanks for all of the swatches. Lemming Lodhi and Luxembourg.

  6. Such fantastic swatches. These are calling me, I think. I love all the shades … thank you so very much. xoxo Beth in Pgh 😉

  8. I need to have Rukugien in my life. It is gorgeous (super weird name though!). The formula on these sounds lovely as well. I look forward to a more thorough post!
