I wanted a flattering nude shade and tried this (and floralies). 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 this after 2 hours but that hasn’t put me off from buying it again.
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.
