Hey all lovely people!!! Today I am going to review NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Torres del Paine. Quite a mouthful, actually. This is my first review on this blog and am extremely thankful to Kinkinee for making me a part of the team. Chubby lip pencils are the new trend everywhere. Convenient to use and travel around with, these are my new love. NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Torres del Paine is a perfect example of comfortable wear and awesome finish. Let us know more about the pencil.

Product Claims: The Satin Lip Pencil dresses up lips in statement shades that seduce with rich, color-bright pigments, while drenching them in decadent moisture. This modern, long-wearing, vitamin-enriched formula for lips looks sumptuously saturated and dramatically defined.

Price: $26.

Packaging

NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Torres del Paine are packaged like a chubby pencil. However, it does not have a twist up mechanism and has to be sharpened. Which literally breaks my heart every time. How I wish I could avoid such wastage of an expensive product. NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Torres del Paine has a matte black outer packaging. There is a colored band on the end of the lipstick, which is very similar to the lipstick shade. This makes it easier to spot in a bunch of similar looking lip pencils.

Shade

NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Torres del Paine is described as a ‘peach coral’. And I think it is very aptly described. The shade is a bright peachy coral with a pastel undertone and translates into a rocking summer shade. Especially this year, when pastels are so in trend, this shade screams warmer and pleasant weather. The shade is super pretty, but will need a bit of a makeup on the face to look more beautiful. It is perfect for both fair and medium skin tones. However, will wash deeper skin tones, unless you wear with a darker lip pencil underneath.

Texture

NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Torres del Paine is very smooth and creamy in texture. In fact, it is too creamy for my liking. The shade has a tendency to appear patchy and emphasize fine lines when it is applied fresh. With a little blending with the fingers, it looks better and wearable. Since it has a pastel undertone, it can also look chalky in the beginning. However, it feels very comforting and hydrating on the lips and keeps them looking healthy with a subtle shine.

Staying power and Pigmentation

NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Torres del Paine has a semi-opaque pigmentation and will need 3-4 swipes to get a saturated color on the lips. Once you build up the coverage, it can also hide lip pigmentation to an extent. The lipstick stays on for 3-4 hours on me and does not leave even a minimal stain behind.
