NARS Lodhi Satin Lip Pencil
NARS Lodhi Satin Lip Pencil

NARS Lodhi Satin Lip Pencil ($25.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “vibrant coral.” It’s a brightened, orange-coral with warm undertones and a creamy, satiny finish. MAC Style Surge is very similar, but it is more pink-tinted. MAC Vegas Volt is darker and has some pink/red tinge. OCC Electric Grandma is more orange and shimmery.

It had rich, opaque color coverage, and it applied evenly, smoothly, and easily onto the lips. Lodhi had a creamy, lightweight texture that glided across lips with ease–no tugging or pulling–and felt comfortable to wear during the five and a half hours this wore for. So far, this is the most hydrating shade I’ve tried from NARS’ new range. I’d actually describe it as hydrating, rather than just slightly! ┬áIt’s packaged in pencil form, and it does require sharpening. It is not nearly as soft as the Velvet Glosses but a touch softer than the Velvet Mattes.

Lodhi

A+
Lodhi was hydrating, wore well, and had excellent color payoff--it really hit on all the characteristics NARS called out for the new formula. If only it was twist-up!
