NARS Isola Bella Satin Lip Pencil
NARS Isola Bella Satin Lip Pencil

NARS Isola Bella Satin Lip Pencil ($25.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as “peach beige.” It’s a warmed-up, medium peachy-brown with a satin finish. It is reminiscent of NARS Biscayne Park, which is lighter and not as warm-toned. MAC Posh Tone is more beige. MAC Delectable is very similar. Bobbi Brown Soft Coral is darker and warmer.

It has decadent, rich color–full color coverage–and it just takes minimal amount of product. One even layer seems to cover everything, and it ensures that the lip color never looks heavy when worn. The texture feels creamy, almost wet, when you apply it, but it doesn’t have much slip once on. It stays on nicely, and Isola Bella wore five hours when I tested it. It was lightly hydrating over the time I wore it, and it didn’t cling.

The Glossover

Isola Bella is somewhere between peach, beige, and brown, and it really comes together and should flatter warmer complexions quite a bit. Cooler skin tones may find it pulls too orange on them, and may want to look for something with more beige in it.

    Hi Christine! Out of NARS’ Isola Bella, Biscayne and Lodhi, which do you think is the closest to MAC Cozy Up?

    I love Cozy Up but since it’s matte, a creamier version can be a nice break. And if it’s going to make a difference, which would look best on an NC40? Thank you!

    I have a Casablanca lipstick,and I’ve been wondering how these two are similar..
    I think Isola bella seems to be a little darker than Casablanca..
    Could anybody tell me the difference please?
