Guess who’s back? NARS. That’s who. This time, my lipstick of the day is the NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien. (I spelled that right after 4 tries, and that’s a win.) This pencil came as a free birthday gift from Sephora, and for longer than I care to admit, I ignored it. It seemed so unremarkable, but I’m here to tell you I COULDN’T HAVE BEEN MORE WRONG. This is the absolute best color when I want “my lips but better”. It’s pink, but not too pink. Nude, but no too nude. And the best part? I can swipe it on without a mirror. It’s become a staple that I keep in my bag at all times.
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.
