NARS Majella Satin Lip Pencil

NARS Majella Satin Lip Pencil ($25.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as “garnet.” It’s a deeper red with cool, blue undertones and a subtle, natural-looking sheen. Rimmel #111 is more orange-toned. MAC Runaway Red is darker. MAC Eden Rouge is slightly brighter. MAC Russian Red is more matte and a bit darker. NARS Mascate is deeper and darker.

It had great pigmentation that applied with opaque , even color.  Majella wore well for a full six hours, and being that it’s a red, it did leave behind a stain that was rather potent for another hour or so.  Even after eight hours, my lips still looked redder than normal.  It was slightly hydrating though not quite as moisture-packed as NARS described, but it did last for awhile and didn’t dry out lips.  I didn’t experience any feathering or bleeding of the color, and I didn’t see the color settle into lip lines over time or as it wore away.  It had a lightweight, thin consistency despite the actual feel of the product–it is soft, almost as if it were melting, when it touched my lips.

NARS Luxembourg Satin Lip Pencil

NARS Luxembourg Satin Lip Pencil ($25.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as “vivid watermelon.” It’s a vibrant, pinky-red with a satin finish. There’s quite a bit of pink in it, so while it calls to mind certain famous reds, I don’t think it matches because it has such strong pink coloring. MAC Ronnie Red is redder. NARS Dragon Girl is deeper. NYX Chic Red is darker.

NARS Biscayne Park Satin Lip Pencil

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.
