I wanted a flattering nude shade and tried this. Having not tried Nars products before, I didn’t know what to expect. I actually was a little put off by it because its a pencil (you’d get less wastage if it was a lipstick) but its so easy and quick to apply because of this. I’m impressed with the quality, colour payoff and the shade itself. The only reason I didn’t give it top marks was because its not long-wearing. I had to reapply after 2 hours but that hasn’t put me off from buying it again.
NARS Floralies Satin Lip Pencil ($25.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as “light apricot.” It’s a peachy-brown with strong warm, orange undertones and a satin finish. MAC Peachstock is more beige. MAC Sheer Mandarin is more orange and darker. Cle de Peau Just Joey is darker and browner.
