NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Yu

NARS Satin Pencil in Yu contains .07 oz of product and retails for $25.00. There are a total of 13 shades in the Satin Lip line. Yu is not a limited edition shade and it should be available at NARS retailers nationwide. I have to give credit to my girl Kathryne and her blog TheFabZilla for making me bust out my bold lip colors!

NARS Yu is a bright, blue pased pink, almost fuchsia that is on the cool side of the tone universe. It is extremely comfortable to wear, very light on the lips. I don’t feel Yu at all. The formula for this particular pencil  is super opaque. It has a satin finish making it perfect for those of us who cannot normally do super matte formulas. The satin finish also negates the need for an additional gloss as it has a natural sheen to it. Yu wears for a good 4-6 hours depending on what I am doing (eating, drinking, kissing, etc!) and it does leave a slight stain behind. It  did not dry my lips out as it wore, keeping them moisturized which was a nice surprise. Yu  stayed in place without the need for a liner, staying put like a champ.

The elephant in the room is the price. One NARS Satin Pencil will set you back $25.00. That is quite pricey BUT NARS is closer to the luxury end of the cosmetics spectrum. It’s definitely a splurge but every once in a while a beauty splurge is ok.  I also don’t like that you have to sharpen this lippie as opposed to a twist up option. At $25.00 a pop I want to use all the Yu possible and not waste it in the trash!

NARS Yu is my go to lippie for a bold, pink lip. I adore the formula as I have fussy lips and Yu does not bother them at all. I say if you’re looking for a great summer color and you want to splurge on yourself grab NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Yu.

  6. This colour is so pretty on you. I looked these over last time I was in Sephora but no way am I paying twenty-five clams for a lippie, half of which is going to sharpened away. Nars needs to improve the packaging for these.
