NARS Satin Lip Pencil | Beauty

I must be honest, this is my first ever NARS purchase. I know, I know, how dare I even call myself a beauty blogger if I don't own a vast collection of NARS? I guess I've always been a little overwhelmed with what to choose they do amazing concealers, amazing foundations, amazing blushes and amazing bronzers but how do I even begin to choose? Right now I kind of like my make up in terms of foundation and bases, I've got a range of high street products that work really well for me and I've kind of wanted to explore a little more with lip shades, so trying out one of these lip pencils seemed like a good choice. 

I knew I would prefer the Satin Lip Pencil to the matte version, I'm just not a matte kinda gal. I swatched a lot of different ones and really like the finish of the Satin Lip Pencils, they are very smooth and easy to apply. Originally I was looking for yet another nude but when I swatched this one on the back of my hand, I immediately loved it. This shade is Rikugien - don't even ask me how to say it. It's a really pretty shade that's a little more red than what I'm used to but actually isn't that far off from my natural lip colour. 

I love the way this lip pencil applies, it's a very soft buttery texture that almost feels like a lip balm but it's dries like a soft barrier leaving a bit of colour and a gorgeous satin finish. I'm really impressed with this product, I'm used to lipsticks but there is something very different about this product. It's actually incredibly nourishing which I wasn't expecting .

I'd say in terms of longevity it's pretty standard, for example if I eat, then of course I'm going to have to reapply but in all fairness there is still some of the product left on my lips which I was quite impressed with. The really handy thing is it's so easy to reapply that you don't have to worry too much about taking ages to line everything up perfectly, it's very quick and easy because of the thickness of the tip. 

I love the NARS Satin Lip Pencil so much that I think I'm gonna have to buy maybe one (or two) more. 

Have you tried any of the NARS lip pencils? What shade would you recommend?
