Worth It? Nars Satin Lip Pencil
By Julia Tanghetti
Have you ever felt like a lipstick was magical? The kind of lipstick you put on and every picture you take is amazing….the kind that gets you backstage at concerts and making out with cute boys….the kind of lipstick that makes you a better person? Ok, maybe I am reaching here, but I feel like the Nars Satin Lip Pencils are truly magical.
What it promises:
The Satin Lip Pencil dresses up lips in statement shades that seduce with rich, color-bright pigments, while drenching them in decadent moisture. This modern, long-wearing, vitamin-enriched formula for lips looks sumptuously saturated and dramatically defined.
While most lip pencils are very drying, the Satin Lip Pencils are incredibly moisturizing. They feel like a lip balm going on and the color is super pigmented. The color also wears very well. After hours of wearing, the lip color fades to more of a stain on the lips, but it still looks fabulous.
I am a fan of the brighter colors, but I have bought 5 different colors of these pencils and have yet to be disappointed.
Here are my recommendations for the top shades: Yu (outrageously bright pink), Luxembourg (luscious watermelon), and Lohdi (coral madness).
If anyone ever needs to find you in a crowd, this lipstick works for that too. When I was at an Alabama Shakes concert that was being televised around the country, the bright pigment of the Nars Lip Pencil allowed my friend, who was watching via TV, to find both me and my fellow GOTG Jamie Romas in a sea of people. (For real!)
