NARS Biscayne Park Satin Lip Pencil ($25.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “pink guava.” It’s a warm, light-medium peach with brown and pink. It looks lighter applied to lips than it does just swatched on the skin–I triple-checked this bad boy, because it wasn’t computing for me! MAC Cozy Up is more orange. MAC Posh Tone is darker. MAC Delectable is also darker. MAC Peachstock is lighter, more beige. MAC Gotta Dash! is pinker. Bobbi Brown Bare Pink is more beige.

NARS Het Loo Satin Lip Pencil

NARS Het Loo Satin Lip Pencil

NARS Het Loo Satin Lip Pencil ($25.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “cognac.” It’s a muted, orange-toned, medium brown with a soft, satin sheen. MAC Tea Ceremony is lighter and more orange. MAC Mocha is redder. MAC Spiced Tea is shimmery and sheerer.

The color payoff was rich and intense; I had no trouble achieving full color coverage with a few strokes–it was really pigmented. Het Loo had glided on well, due to the creamier consistency. Despite the creaminess, it didn’t have too much slip, so it did not slide around on the lips. Once it’s on, it sets a bit, which results in that natural sheen that keeps it from being totally matte but not enough to make it glossy. When I tested this shade, it wore for five and a half hours, and it was neither drying nor hydrating.
