NARS “YU” Satin Lip Pencil Review & Swatches


NARS “YU” Satin Lip Pencil

In my previous post I had mentioned about the two formulas which I shared here for the NARS Lip Pencils Satin and Velvet Matte. The SATIN Lip Pencil shades which you have seen here are MAJELLA , HET LOO , TIMANFAYA and RIKUGIEN. The shade which I picked very recently is NARS YU and OMG; I kick myself hard not to pick this earlier. It is freaking awesome shade , BUT, by online swatches I felt that it may be little pale for my skin tone but it is an amazing shade.

My Experience with NARS “YU” Satin Lip Pencil

Shade- YU is described as Shocking Pink, it is cool toned bright and vibrant shade of blue based medium dark hot pink shade with super glossy sheen to it. I really wonder why I hesitated to pick this in first place. Anyhow, it’s here and am totally loving this these days and you have to believe me I wore this thrice in a row past week. It is super gorgeous and very easy to wear kind shade.

Texture and Staying power- The texture is light weight and easy to glide covering my lips easily and doesn’t fade unevenly. I get some 5 plus hrs of wear with this and it leave behind a beautiful pink tint on my lips.
