NARS Majella Satin Lip Pencil
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.

Majella

A+
As long as you only need some hydration while it is worn, Majella is well worth a look--rich in color with a lovely feel and consistency, plus it's long-wearing.

  11. My eyes seriously became so wide when I saw the shade on your lips. It’s so stunning! I so need this color in my life! It looks fantastic on you by the way!

  12. Veronica

    Gorgeous. This is one of my favorite shades of red, very polished and chic. :D This being said, Russian Red is already on my wishlist, so I might pass it up for that reason…but it may likely reel me in at some point, regardless. :P

  13. Meg

    Oh wow. This is such a gorgeous red!

  14. KK

    These colors all seem great to me. Every review you’ve done on them, I’m like “ooh! I want that one!” and this is no exception!

  15. xamyx

    These deeper shades look so rich & intense in the product photos, but when actually swatched/applied, they just don’t read the same. None of these shades so far make me want to put up with a pencil product… I think I’ll just stick with the traditional lippies.

  16. Hazel

    Is this the same shade as Ruby Woo?

  17. Wow. That is SUCH an awesome red!!!

  18. These satin Lip Pencils do perform really well ! !

  19. Doll

    Oh Christine you must be a mind reader! I was looking desperately for a red like this until now.. Thank you for the review, you look amazing (as always)!

  20. anna

    If I have a warm undertone,does that mean that I could not wear lip color with blue base?
