NARS Hyde Park Satin Lip Pencil
NARS Hyde Park Satin Lip Pencil

NARS Hyde Park Satin Lip Pencil ($25.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as “cardinal red.” It’s a deeper red with mostly neutral undertones–it looks a bit berry-ish–and a satin finish. MAC Fire Sign is warmer. Guerlain Pour Troubler is cooler-toned, more berry-hued. Shiseido Sweet Pea is warmer. NARS Flamenco is more muted. Dior Technicolor Red is similar but has shimmer.

While many shades in the range are screaming with pigment, this one was actually a bit translucent; there’s a hinto f my lip freckle that still comes through. Hyde Park looked a bit like a lip stain/lipstick hybrid. It lasted four and a half hours well on me, and then a noticeable stain lingered for the next hour or so. The color did settle into lip lines somewhat after four hours of wear. It was neither hydrating nor moisturizing while I wore it.

Hyde Park

B+
It could be more pigmented (it would not build to totally opaque color) and wear better--the settling in the lip lines wasn't something I expected but occurred the longer I had it on.

    For a person with lighter skin, which color works better? Dragon Girl or this one?

    I hope you would compare it to other NARS red lipsticks.
    Can you compare it to NARS Mascate, Vesuvio and Dragon girl?

      I mean whether Mascate/Vesuvio/Dragon girl is darker/lighter than Hyde Park.

    • It’s not really a blue-based red, so it’s not going to compare to shades like Dragon Girl. I don’t have Vesuvio, so I’m not sure how it would compare. Mascate is much darker, more matte, and cooler-toned.

    I can’t believe *none* of these are doing it for me… Every one has been too pink, yellow, or orange. I’m finally at the point where I want to try NARS lip products, so I was so excited for these, but none will work for me. At least there are a few of the regular lipsticks I want to try.

    Christine — any drugstore dupes for this color? It’s stunning, but that price point it too painful! xx

    That´s my kind of color. Totally pretty! I love that kind of “everyday wearable reds” :)

    I didn’t think I’d like this but I really really do. I have Sweet Pea, though, and i want to get Pour Troubler, so I don’t know as I *need* this.

    cute color but it’s not worth it: too little of it(-waste, tho that has a hygienic advantage, not moisturizing and not that long-lasting.(it would surely be gone way quicker from my lips than yours, it’s cool that you can keep l/s on for so long :D i drink a lot of water and that ruins it all the time-or if not, the lip product becomes dry on me)
