NARS Luxembourg Satin Lip Pencil
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.

It’s a rather bright, rich color that applied mostly opaque on the lips. I found that this shade stained very quickly and readily, which helped make it wear longer, too–a solid six hours with a residual stain that continued on for another two (of course, tapering down over those hours). Luxembourg didn’t feather or bleed on me, which is always good news with a shade as bright as this! It had a thin texture that felt lightweight on the lips, but it wasn’t hydrating–I would not say it was drying, though. If you like your reds with a lot of pink, you’ll like this shade, because from afar, it looks more pink than it does red, which is what makes it less dupable.

    Hi Christine

    I hate sharpening those pencils with the soft interior, it sticks in the sharpener, and it is a total mess

  8. Caitlin

    Any tips on the best way to sharpen these or a good sharpener to use? I love the color and the finish but I’m a little worried that I’ll just be wasting product every time I need to sharpen them. Color looks gorgeous on you Christine!

    I got this one a couple of days ago and haven’t worn it yet. It looks great on your coloring! I have fairly pale skin and figured if it was too dark/intense for wearing to the office, I could mix in a little of the Florales satin lip pencil to lighten it up. I admit to being obsessed with lip liners (always use with anything placed on my lips to add very subtle depth and dimension) but I really don’t think you even need to use any lip liner with this formula!

  10. I am absolutely loving these swatches and reviews! They all look so pretty! I just wish you didn’t have to sharpen these! :(

  11. KEG

    WOW-it’s gorgeous on you. Thanks for doing all of the Nars pencil reviews so fast!

  12. Katie

    Can you get this at sephora?

  13. I LOVE this!! I’m actually quite excited – so far the Satin Lip Pencil shades had been leaving me flat.

  14. Smidge

    I have a Rimmel lipstick called In Vogue that looks a lot like this. I really enjoy the color.

    Hi Christine!
    How does it compare to Mac’s Moxie?

    Has anyone else had an allergic reaction to this? I am devastated as I love the colour but the next day after wearing it my lips were sore, over the following days they proceeded to crack and peel and become very tight! My saving grace was carmex lip balm!! So gutted, I had a similar experience with MAC cremesheen glass. I would definitely be interested to know if anyone had a similar reaction, I may give it a second try just to see if it was a one off coincidence! x
