Its seems as though this spring and summer is all about the bright, semi-glossy lip.  Intense colour like a lipstick with the glossiness of a lip gloss.   But not super shiny, more like a really slick lip balm.  All in a chubby pencil.  Cute, convenient. So NARS Satin Lip Pencils are a perfect example of this and are now available online at narscometics.com and at their boutiques.

NARS Satin Lip Pencil

Speaking of boutiques, I recently went  to the NARS boutique on 413 Bleecker when they unveiled their Satin Lip collection as well as I was able to see their new Radiant Creamy Concealers.  Some pics of that are below, but here’s the scoop on the new Satin Lip Pencils.

Arresting Color, Seductively Satin Finish.  This season, NARS dresses up lips in the new Satin  Lip Pencil.  Drenched in decadent moisture for an ultra creamy finish, thirteen statement shades smolder with rich pigments.  Created by Founder and Creative Director Francois Nars, the Satin Lip Pencil combines the convienence of a pencil with the application of a lipstick in a jumbo-size crayon design.
