I have been loving any and all lip crayons lately (these Revlon ones are awesome and the Annabelle TwistUp Retractable Lip Crayons are also favourites), so it's no surprise that I found myself hovering over the lip pencils while at the NARS counter a few weeks ago. After swatching a few, I ended up purchasing the NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Lodhi.
This is my first time trying NARS lip pencils but since I love all their other products, I knew this would probably be a hit... and I was right!
Lodhi is described as a "vibrant coral" and while bright, is still easy to wear. It's well pigmented and would make a great summer colour (I'm a total follower of seasonal makeup). Personally, I can see myself wearing this shade a lot once the weather warms up. The formula is also creamy and hydrating on the lips, which makes for comfortable wearing. So pretty, right?
NARS always gets me on their packaging and these pencils are no exception. They feel smooth and sleek to the touch with a colour swatch on the end so you know what's inside. However, because they aren't twist-ups you do have to sharpen them with a special sharpener. This can get a little messy and waste precious product so I'd recommend popping the pencil in the fridge first to firm it up a bit. Nonetheless, despite this minor annoyance, I still feel the product is worth the money ($30 CAD) and can't wait to check out some other colours!
