Lipstick Advent Calendar Day Three: NARS Satin Lip Pencil

Day Three! This one is a mega throwback. I bought this NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Luxembourg years ago, and I’ll admit that I’ve neglected it as my collection has grown. To be honest, I wasn’t sure if I’d like it after wearing so many different formulas and brands. But I’ll give credit- this lip pencil is amazing! Sephora describes the shade as ‘watermelon’.¬†Pigmented, comfortable to wear, and fades the best of all the lipsticks I own. I drank three cups of coffee and because this lip pencil stains a bit, the fade was so natural. NO CLOWN MOUTH FOR ME, THANKS. This is a bright, fun pink, and now that I’m back to brown hair, the pinks have become my fav.


As you can see, I pair a bright lip like this one with a classic stripe tee, and I’m good to go.¬†These lip pencils are gateway lipsticks. I’d highly recommend the NARS Satin Lip Pencil if matte formulas intimidate you, you want something easy to apply and reapply, and you want the color to wow. I’m so glad I’ve rediscovered this old fav. At $26, It was my first luxury beauty purchase. It launched an obsession that has deepened over time.
