NARS Timanfaya Satin Lip Pencil Review & Swatches



NARS Timanfaya Satin Lip Pencil

By now most of you are aware of my love for NARS Lip Products and my absolute favourite is their SATIN LIP PENCILS. I had shared two shades in past and they were – Het Loo and Majella. The shade am sharing today was limited edition and I picked that from SEPHORA USA. I guess it is still available for purchase as it launched last year.

My experience with NARS Timanfaya Satin Lip Pencil:

Shade – TIMANFAYA is described as Mandarin Orange Red, it is warm toned bright but not in your face Tangerine Orange shade with super fine golden sheen to it, the sheen is really fine and can be seen if light hits, it’s almost invisible but lends that soft golden touch to lips. I’m NC 40 – 42 and this shade takes a lot of effort to work, if you are little lighter then it would be super glam on you.

Texture and Staying power – The texture is same, light weight and easy to glide and does not settle into fine lines. I love SATIN Lip Pencils for the glossy sheen they have, it does fade but the strong tint stays. I get some 4 plus hrs of wear with this shade with small snacks in between and it fades evenly.

Pigmentation – The pigmentation is bang on! It is opaque in single swipe and stays nicely once sets.

What I like about NARS Timanfaya Satin Lip Pencil:

  • I do love the shade but it would be more flattering on someone lighter than NC40.
  • The staying power is good if not great.
  • The texture is a breeze on lips.
  • There is no distinct smell of NARS Products.

What I don’t like about NARS Timanfaya Satin Lip Pencil:

  • The sharpening leads to lot of wastage.
  • The price is too steep for the size.

Ratings – 4/5

Recommendations – Having confessed that am in love with SATIN LIP PENCILS by NARS but I find this shade is hard to work on my skin tone. However if you are below NC 40, then please give this a shot . It speaks SUMMER!
