Happy Friday!! I thought before September was over I should get my VIB Rouge Birthday gift post up. So this year’s gift was NARS One Year Bolder and included Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien (rose pink) and Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella (scarlet red). For us VIB Rouge’s they also tossed in a Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner in Via Veneto (black) which just instantly went in to my constantly growing pile of deluxe sample black eyeliners. The lip pencils though are beautiful and so I needed to share!
Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien
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
I absolutely love this rose pink pencil, though I can’t pronounce the name. It feels moisturizing and gives my lips just a hint of colour and shine. It definitely feels like more of a balm, and I needed to reapply frequently (every 30 – 45 minutes), but it goes with everything and is an easy product to grab out of my purse if I need something on my lips!
Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella
The application of a lipstick combined with the convenience of a pencil in a jumbo crayon design. Lips are instantly saturated with rich pigments and a velvety matte finish. The long lasting, non-drying formula is enriched with emollients for a creamy texture, while a combination of unique silicones ensures long-lasting, seamless color for hours. Use for lining, all-over lip color, or pairing with another lip product.
Rich, vivid shades
Enriched with Vitamin E
Convenient, easy application
Passionate scarlet red – Be still my beating heart ♥♥♥♥ The formula is amazing… it goes on easily, and it stays in place for hours. The colour is ah-mazing and the finish is something that I never thought I would like, but really really do. I do need to put on a bit of lip balm underneath (I typically apply, and then blot to get rid of any excess) otherwise my lips feel dry instantly.
I can’t wait to see what they come out with next year – I only wish I didn’t have to wait until September to get it ♥ Have a great weekend!
