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! It’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.
