Long story short, I had a moment of weakness and came home with a palette and a lip pencil. I really must learn to resist the urge to sit on that makeup chair. I’ve tried NARS lipsticks before— pure matte Carthage is one of my favorites, Montego Bay is also a nice nude/MLBB shade, but their Velvet Matte Lip Pencil just did not sit well with my lips at all. It emphasized my dry and flaky Sahara-levels lips. Thankfully the NARS gods have heard my grouses and came up with these nifty Satin Lip Pencils. Same packaging, same look except the finish of these are deliciously creamy without sucking your lips dry (yes, I am talking about you, MAC Satin lipsticks – you painfully drying formula you). Lodhi is said to be one of the most saleable colors among their Satin Lip Pencils. Local celebrities reportedly hoarded this color! It’s a vibrant coral shade that for some reason, I have no close dupe of yet in my stash. It’s one of the few corals that don’t pull pink on my lips and actually look orangey. I can’t believe I actually love it! Pigmentation is medium yet buildable. One stroke though delivers full opacity without feeling heavy on the lips. I can liken the lightweight feel to Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet. The creaminess though, makes for a tricky application especially with my two left hands. Control is key to avoid bleeding. One of my favorite things about this lip pencil is how long it lasts and the beautiful stain it leaves behind when it fades. It lasts on average 5-6 hours on me, more if I don’t eat in between. Also, absolutely transfer-free! I bought a Guerlain L’Extrait which is a matte liquid lipstick that transfers like cray-cray on everything! Doesn’t even last 2 hours on me, so sad (but I’ll save that review for another time!).
A NEWFOUND LOVEJust when I feel like I’ve given up on lipsticks because it’s very rare to find a formula that suits my parched puckers, I stumble upon this lip pencil that sparks yet another (expensive) love affair. It’s rare I don’t regret buying an item an SA pushed on me. Au contraire, I even want to collect all the yummy shades!
OVERALLThese NARS lip pencils don’t look so attractive physically (I mean, a fat lip pencil reminds me of the Crayola jumbo crayons I used when I was a kid) but they perform outstandingly. I truly feel that these are several notches up a MAC lipstick in terms of formula. They are long-wearing, delectably creamy, non-drying (!!!) pieces of lip heaven in pencil form that leaves a beautiful even stain when it fades. Definitely recommending these!
