Lodhi Lip Loveliness: NARS Satin Lip Pencil

I can’t believe I haven’t blogged about this sooner – I treated myself to this NARS Lip Pencil from Selfridges last year (still feels weird saying last year!) I used that £50 Selfridges Gift Card which I won.

The shade is called Lodhi, it’s a lovely coral-pink and it’s absolutely perfect for this “new-year-spring-is-here!” mood that I’m in.

Isn’t it lovely? (Do you like my vague attempt at artistic photography…!?) As I’ve said before, I’m a big fan of the crayon format and this NARS Lip Pencil ticks all the boxes. If only it wasn’t so blimmin expensive!

This is the first Nars Satin Lip Pencil I’ve bought and I definitely want to buy more – but at £17.50 a pop, I’ll have to make this a special occasion purchase! (Now just to find an occasion…. half birthday? Almost-anniversary? Friday?)

I love the texture– it’s smooth and creamy and applies like a dream. The colour is true and vibrant and it’s actually quite long lasting too.

I’d also like to try the different finishes next- the Velvet Matte Lip Pencil and the Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil. I just wish it was cheaper!!

Face Value Tip: Make sure your lips are buffed and prepped to perfection using a lip exfoliator (you can get a great lip scrub from Lush, or E.L.F) 

Any recommendations for any NARS colours to add to my new collection?

      DEFINITELY – I loved the Revlon Chubby Stick dupes, they might pull it off again 🙂

    Oh how jealous am I!! I'd love to try one of the NARS lip crayons but as you say they're so blimmin expensive! I'm sure I'll grab one at some point in the future, I can only hold out on these things for so long 🙂 Becky @ The Little Blog of Beauty
