NARS Lip Pencils: Satin, Velvet Matte & Velvet Gloss

NARS Lip Pencils

Just a short post about the NARS Lip Pencils I have. I received two of the NARS Lip Pencils as my Sephora VIB Birthday Reward and I have also purchased one. I have one in each of the finishes: Velvet Matte, Velvet Gloss and Satin:

  • Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella, a blue-red
  • Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil in New Lover, described as a “gold infused strawberry pink”
  • Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien, a mauvey-pink

My favourite is definitely the Satin Lip Pencil. I love the finish of this one the best. Rikugien is such a pretty, wearable my lips but better type of shade. The Velvet Gloss is a little too frosty for me. Cruella is the right shade of red for me, but I’m generally not a huge fan of matte finish lip products.

The thing I like about the NARS Lip Pencils is that they are completely unscented. I’m not a big fan of other NARS lip products I’ve tried (like the lipsticks and lipgloss) but I really like the Satin Lip Pencil. I would totally get more of these. I have two on my wishlist, Biscayne Park and Het Loo, two gorgeous nude shades!

  1. I just bought a kit the other day and I’m really digging their velvet matte formulation! Mattes can be tricky, but the velvet mattes are stunning and comfortable

  2. Pretties! I can’t wait to get mine (damn having a late-in-the-year birthday). I am generally not a fan of lip pencils because I hate sharpening them, though.

    I haven’t tried the velvet gloss, but I’m intrigued. Maybe they aren’t all too frosty. I really love Cruella as it’s one of the few products that lasts all day on me without drying out my lips.

  7. I just picked up my Sephora birthday present and I LOVE the look of Rikugien too! I’m giving the red matte one to a friend – I just don’t like mattes and hardly ever wear reds. I love your picks of the 2 satin shades! πŸ™‚
