NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Yu

nars satin lip pencil in yuBright pink is my signature lip color and I’m always looking for new shades to try. I’ve written before about the NARS Lip Pencils in Dragon Girl and Luxembourg and I liked both of those so much that when it was time for a new lipstick, I looked to that line for ideas. My newest bright pink is the NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Yu.

nars satin lip pencil in yuYu is a great hot pink in pencil form. I love the look of NARS’ black matte packaging and I really like how their Lip Pencils have a swatch of color at the end so you can keep them organized. These pencils do need to be sharpened so you can waste a lot of product if you’re not careful. I haven’t had too much of any issue with product loss but I’ve also found I’m able to use these even if the tip gets a little dull so I can go a lot longer between sharpenings.

nars satin lip pencil in yuYu is part of the Satin Lip Pencil line, which means it has a shiny, satin finish instead of a matte (like their Velvet Matte Lip Pencils) and it’s also super opaque (unlike their sheer Velvet Gloss Lip Pencils).

Yu is very pigmented and super opaque. It lasted nearly all day on me (even with eating and drinking) without any touch-ups.

Yu is slightly moisturizing and doesn’t dry out my lips throughout the day. Unlike a lot of glossy, moisturizing lip colors, it doesn’t transfer or wear off quickly.

    Wowee, that’s a gorgeous shade, Molly! It’s bright enough to drive the winter blues away! I have one of the NARS Satin lip crayons and I love it. I have a couple of gorgeous red NARS mattes but they’re too drying for me. I’ll stick with the satins!

    After a ridiculous Sephora haul I got two of these pencils as freebies. I’m not huge on makeup, but these are AMAZING! This color looks soooo good on you! I definitely need to go back and get more.

    p.s. do you just sharpen it with a regular sharpener??

    I’m always looking for fabulous new lip shades. I just started trying lip stains, and I really love them, because they last so much longer than normal lipstick. I haven’t tried out any NARS products before, but I’ve heard great things. I’ll definitely have to look in to this. Thanks for sharing!
