The new NARS Satin Lip Pencils are easy to use, not sticky, highly pigmented and come in colors for every skin tone. NARS sent me samples of three shades: Het Loo, Isola Bella and Palais Royal.
Isola Bella is a winner for me. It’s a peachy pink, which is always a favorite of mine. This is more of a nude tone for my pale skin.
Het Loo is a, “modern take on a classic nude tone.” On my fair skin, it shows up as a rosy-brown color, reminiscent of MAC’s “Spice” which was hugely popular back in the day. On darker skin tones, this could be a lovely nude color.
Palais Royal is a deep wine shade. When I’m not using self-tanner, I find it to be too bright for my skin tone. BUT, when I’m using Beautisol self-tanner, it looks amazing!
I wore Palais Royal to an animal charity event recently and got several compliments on the color. It’s definitely sexy and not for the timid! Here’s a pic I snapped from my phone:
What do you think? Would you wear these colors? Have you tried other NARS lip pencils?
