NARS Satin Lip Pencil in "Rikugien"

My NARS obsession continues! I've been eyeing up the Satin Lip Pencils for a while now and just couldn't decide which shade I wanted to get. Finally during one trip to Sephora I just picked a shade that I usually gravitate for in picking other lip products. The NARS Satin Lip Pencil in "Rikugien" ($25) has been in my possession for a couple of weeks now and (of course as it goes with all NARS products) I love it.

"Rikugien" is a bit more sheer and lighter than the packaging would suggest, but applies like a dream. It's like butter going on the lips and it stays for ages. It's completely set the bar for what I refer to as long lasting. All other products I've once said last a long time definitely don't last as long as this. It feels more like a lip balm now that I think of it. I love the shine it gives to my lips and what an easy, everyday color it is.

I'm already figuring out which one I want to get next. The obsession has begun. I'm thinking "Hyde Park" as it'll give me more of the dark mauve color I originally thought I was getting with "Rikugien". Or maybe I'll give one of their Velvet Matte Lip Pencils a go as that line has a lot of shades that are right up my alley.

Have you tried the Satin Lip Pencils before? What are your thoughts?

  1. this is such a pretty colour! i love lip products that do actually last a long time xx

  2. I would so recommend trying the Velvet Mattes - they're even better than the Satin ones! Dolce Vita is my go-to shade. :)
