I am here again with NARS Lip Pencil review, but this time it’s from their SATIN FINISH range which launched last year. I so love their lip pencils and find them very convenient to use, but same old story – they are not twist ups and that’s the biggest con for the awesome product. This range has some amazing shades and I am surely picking few more in next sale at SEPHORA.
Size – 2.2 gm

About NARS Lip Pencil:
What it is:
A selection of high-impact, fashion-forward shades in a rich, creamy satin finish that stays on all day.
What it does:
The Satin Lip Pencil dresses up lips in statement shades that seduce with rich, colour-bright pigments, while drenching them in decadent moisture. This modern, long-wearing, vitamin-enriched formula for lips looks sumptuously saturated and dramatically defined.
What else you need to know:
The Satin Lip Pencil Category shade designations are all named for parks and gardens around the world.
My experience with NARS Lip Pencil Majella:
Shade – MAJELLA is described as GARNET and as the description goes, it is deep dark maroon red shade with beautiful sheen to it. These are named after parks and gardens around the world as mentioned above and if am not wrong MAJELLA is NATIONAL PARK situated in ITALY.
Texture – It has very creamy, slippery texture, same as NARS SATIN finish lipsticks or say a little more satiny and hence glides easily on lips. I adore how soft and light weight they feel on my lips and the shine makes them look plumped up.
Pigmentation – MAJELLA was opaque in one single swipe and with second layer it looked little more even. As this is from the darkest shade available in this range, I feel for lighter shades you may need 2 – 3 layers.
Staying Power – I get 4 – 5 hrs of wear with this and then it leaves a subtle red tint which is equally pretty and hydrating at the same time.
What I like about NARS Lip Pencil Majella:
- I love how gorgeously pigmented it is, single swipe and your lips are covered from every corners.
- The creamy texture glides so easily and covers every flaw as it has soft satin finish to it.
- They never leave my lips dry and patchy, fades evenly and my lips never felt any need of balm or so once they wear off.
What I don’t like about NARS Lip Pencil Majella:
- Again like I said in my previous reviews of NARS Lip pencils – they need to be sharpened and that is the only drawback I find in them.
Ratings – 5/5
For a shade like this even if I need to sharpen I wouldn’t mind, it is gorgeous and looks beautiful even without no eye makeup. It just perks up my face and sits pretty for hrs. I highly recommend you to try out their lip pencils and am sure I will be sitting and reading your reviews next.
