One of my favorite parts of Sephora’s rewards program is the birthday reward they give out during birthday months. This year’s is especially great- two mini NARS lip pencils, one satin, and one matte! The satin finish pencil is a more neutral shade, and the matte shade is more bold, so there is a lot of variety in this set.
I picked mine up last time I went to Sephora, and have been loving both colors!
Rikugien is a lovely rose color with a touch of brown. It has a glossy finish, and is so comfortable and easy to wear. I was also surprised by the lasting power of this pencil, and how much it seemed to hydrate my lips. It’s definitely a winner!
Cruella is a stunning matte deep red, similar to one of my favorite lipsticks, MAC’s Russian Red. I had heard several people talk about this shade, so I was doubly excited to try it, and I love it! It is so easy to apply for a bold color, and I love that it isn’t too dry feeling like so many matte lip colors.
