NARS Jardin des Plantes Satin Lip Pencil
NARS Jardin des Plantes Satin Lip Pencil

NARS Jardin des Plantes Satin Lip Pencil ($25.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as “fuchsia.” It’s a red-toend fuchsia pink with a soft, frosted finish and a satiny sheen. It has cool, blue undertones. Guerlain Girly is a smidgen redder and has no frosted shimmer. OCC Queen is all cream in finish. NARS Carthage is cooler-toned, pinker. Guerlain Champs-Elysees is similar but less shimmer. Estee Lauder Wild Violet is darker. MAC Insanely It has a glossier sheen. NARS Funny Face is very similar–perhaps a little more frost. MAC Full Fuchsia is slightly less red. Beautiful color, undoubtedly, though a shade that many brands have, so you may want to check your stash!

It’s a rich, vibrant color that goes on with full color coverage with little product. The consistency is lightly creamy but not thick that glides on easily without pulling or tugging on the lips. It’s easy to maneuver the color around the edges, too, because it delivers so much color in a single pass.  Jardin des Plantes wore for an impressive six hours on me, and it did leave behind a stain for another hour.  It was neither hydrating nor moisturizing, though, and that is one aspect of the product that did not deliver.

If you don't mind that it's not moisturizing (but thankfully, not drying either!), then it's worth considering because it has excellent color payoff and wear--but there are numerous dupes available.
