NARS Mandore Satin Lip Pencil

NARS Mandore Satin Lip Pencil was my one lip color pick from Night Caller, the Fall 2014 collection. This red berry color is limited edition (Bansar, the other new Satin Lip Pencil is permanent); since I love the Satin Pencil formula it was an easy decision. 

This color goes well with the various smoky neutral eye looks of the season, and as a twisted on my favorite classic, a black liner-bold lip combo. Longevity is excellent: the pencil creates a long-lasting stain that barely requires touch ups (it survives a Sunday brunch intact), and since it's a non-drying formula, my lips remain in good shape for hours. 

Bottom Line: I'll keep buying them as long as NARS makes these pencils.

  1. How's the pencil-sharpening aspect of these? I love a good lipstick-pencil hybrid but they often fall apart and get wasted in the sharpener, or there's not enough product….

    1. There's some product loss, but using NARS's own sharpener keeps it rather minimal with no breakage.

  2. This is gorgeous! Seems like a beautiful, classic color!
