NARS Satin Lip Pencil – “Yu”- Review and Swatches.

By- Sushmita MJ


I heard a lots about NARS satin lip pencils but never really got a chance to buy it, until one fine day when “Royalicious” watsaaped me with the pictures, bless that day when I placed order for such a beautiful product. The shade I choose was “YU”- a hot pink for every pink lover. Everyone says it is long lasting, creamy, non drying yet set as matte finish on lips. Lets us see how it performed so far.


What Company Claims: Satin Lip Pencil dresses up lips in statement shades that seduce with rich, color-bright pigments while drenching them in decadent moisture. A modern, long-wearing, vitamin-enriched formula in a jumbo pencil format to provide great wear and intense color with a satin finish. Use for lining, all-over lip color, or pairing with another lip product.

High-impact intense color

Convenient, easy and precise application

Artist Tips: Tap Yu Satin Lip Pencil onto the center of lips for an instant pop of pink then use your finger to smudge out. For a statement look, apply Schiap Lipstick all over the lips then finish with a layer of Yu for a full powered pink pout. —Jenny Smith, Lead Makeup Stylist.

I always love Nars cosmetics; So far whatever I’ve used from this brand, they never let me down. I have used their satin lipsticks, audacious lipsticks are fabulous. Nars came up with 14-16 different shades in satin lip pencils and has huge colour diversity that suits from lighter to darker skin tones. NARS Satin Lip Pencil – “Yu”- – is a perfect hot-hot pink, those who don’t fear of wearing statement bold lips – this is for you gurl! The shade is perfect to light up the face and enhance that glow on your make you feel like a vanquisher; I always believe a bold lipstick has a power to change the whole look. I just need a face powder, get my brows done and Yu on lips- I am done for the day!

These are even better than the satin lipsticks-mark my word. The jumbo style crayons are very easy to carry; it can even fit inside those skinny jeans’ pocket 😉 The texture is smooth yet has a satin finish (not completely matte). As days goes, it tend to set as matte but I can still feel that creaminess on lips. It goes on very smooth, with opaque pigments while maintaining “moisture”. Nars Satin lip pencils are transfer proof, smudge proof, highly pigmented product. I have been using this since I brought it and each time I get compliments. The product does leave a strong pink tint on lips which look beautiful. I don’t have to re-apply throughout the day, as it tends to fade evenly, and after a long day the strong tint looks so much better.

What I like about NARS Satin Lip Pencil – “Yu”:

  • A perfect hot pink for pink lovers- spring appropriate.
  • Very smooth and creamy texture, glide on lips like butter.
  • The formula set as satin matte finish yet maintains the moisture.
  • It has long-lasting, high pigmentation and gives opaque coverage in single pass.
  • Doesn’t make my lips dry or flaky.
  • Wears comfortably whole day-even during winters I never had to use any lipbalm underneath.
  • Fades evenly leaving a strong pink tint behind.
  • Scentless, flavorless product comes in large colour selection for every skin tones.
  • The jumbo crayon fits in slimmest place that you may have.
  • I love this satin lip crayons, they are multi-usage products. You can sheer it out- smudge it with finger for sheer coverage, or line your lips, use it alone or add it with lipsticks or lipgloss.



What I don’t like about NARS Satin Lip Pencil – “Yu”:

  • The product is expensive and then sharpen is total wastage. I wish Nars change the mechanism to retractable one.

  1. I like how the Satin Lip Pencils conveniently combine a liner and a lipstick. They really simplify the process of applying lip color by eliminating the excess doo-dads, like lip liners and brushes, especially with the super-saturated brighter reds and pinks, which we all know can be a pain to apply.
