New NARS Satin Lip Pencil Swatches

NARS Satin Lip Pencil - Palais Royal

NARS Satin Lip Pencil – Palais Royal

I’ve been hanging out at The Makeup Show Los Angeles, which is a pro-only beauty show, and I have so many pictures and lots of information to share with you all. I’m going to start with one of the most exciting things – swatches of all of NARS’s Satin Lip Pencils, which are new for Spring 2013 – I believe they launch in the U.S. on March 7th, and worldwide on April 1st, though they are available for purchase at The Makeup Show (& I did buy one, which I will review once I have the chance to test it out – review is here).

Note: As of 3/6, these are now available for purchase on Nordstrom.com!

They’re packaged just like NARS’s Velvet Matte and Velvet Gloss pencils – a jumbo pencil that you sharpen – and they come in 13 shades; 12 will be sold at all the usual places, and one shade, Jardin Des Plantes, is exclusive to the freestanding NARS boutiques.

The following photos were taken with flash; you can see how glossy the pencils are! Note that the darker colors all left a persistent stain on my arm, and the lighter colors (the nudes) did not leave stains.  I’m guessing that these are going to be quite long-wearing, but I’ll get back to you on that.

Please note that the shade names Lodhi & Luxembourg were switched for the first hour or so this post was up; I apologize for the mistake! I am reasonably sure the rest are correct (I double checked my notes) – but if you think there’s something wrong, please let me know!

And finally, Jardin Des Plantes – this one (again), is the boutique exclusive. I believe that boutique exclusives are generally available on narscosmetics.com, but not at other retailers.

      Thanks Phyrra! Also – I initially had the shade names mixed up for for Lodhi & Luxembourg – so it’s Lodhi that you liked, I wouldn’t want you to order the wrong one because of me!

    Wow, thanks for the swatches, Emi! I’m eyeing Luxenbourg. I’m back in my coral mode! The reds look pretty good as well. Would love to know how the formula fares!

      They’re all so pretty! Also, since you mentioned one of them, I should mention that I mixed up the shade names for Lodhi & Luxembourg – the post has been corrected now :)

    So happy that they are releasing these because satins are one of my favourite finishes ^^. I’m already loving Lodhi, such a pretty pink! Thanks a lot for these swatches Emi!

    OK I am dying over the two nude pinks, but honestly I love every single color… it’s amazing how a line of 20+ colors will come out and sometimes there will be barely one or two I like… then there are others, like this one. Thanks for these swatches!

    • http://www.project-swatch.com/ Emi at Project Swatch

      I agree completely!

  • Hollie Forrest

    Oh goodness these are SO gorgeous. The shine is absolutely spectacular! I always thought the Nars Matte Lip Pencils looked nice but matte is not really my thing. Glad they finally decided to release a satin version. I love the look of Isola Bella and Rikugien, so I will definitely have to check these out!
