Despite some delay because life got in the way, we were pleased to be able to present the entire line of Nars Satin Lip Pencils. Like many Nars releases, this includes some highly usable, yet unusual colors.
These are unique enough to create a “what’s she wearing?” look.
Unlike prior releases, these had no scent or taste. The finish is slightly glowy, which fades to a rich stain. The glow lasts for the first hour or less, the stain far longer. Please keep in mind that nothing lasts on us. We didn’t notice any bleeding, but we don’t tend to experience bleeding with any lip products. Although the initial experience with these feels moisturizing, the sensation does wear off along with the gloss after 1/2 hour up to 1 hour. The rich stain left behind is pretty, but those with drier lips will notice the change (and the appearance will look as dry as your lips actually are).
After playing with these, I found the standouts to be Lodhi, Biscayne Park, Rikugien, and Yu. I hope you enjoyed this little series. Which did you choose?
Nars Satin Lip Pencils are available online at Nars Cosmetics online, Nars boutiques (New York City on Bleecker, Los Angeles, and San Francisco on Fillmore), Nordstrom.com, and other Nars retailers that include Sephora.
