Bright 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.
Yu 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.
Yu 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).
NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Yu is a vibrant bright pink shade. It’s a pretty common lipstick color but the formula is what makes this stand out from the rest. Yu is very pigmented and super opaque. It lasted nearly all day on me (even with eating and drinking) without any touch-ups.
And although it may not be a very unique color, it is super pretty! I love how glossy Yu looks on the lips. This is such a fun color to wear and it’s really comfortable. 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.
I’m really happy with the NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Yu, it’s even better than I was expecting it to be. The color is gorgeous and I love the opaque, glossy finish. The formula is even better than the color. It’s moisturizing and long-lasting and doesn’t transfer or flake throughout the day. This is easily my favorite out of all the NARS Lip Pencils I own, I’m so glad I picked up this bright pink shade! NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Yu is $26 here.
