NARS Satin Lip Pencil Yu Review, Swatch, FOTD

Claims : 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

Tips : “Tap Yu Satin Lip Pencil onto the center of lips for an instant pop of pink then use your finger to smudge out. For a statement look, apply Schiap Lipstick all over the lips then finish with a layer of Yu for a full powered pink pout.”β€”Jenny Smith, Lead Makeup Stylist

Price : Rs 1550 approx / $28

NARS Satin Lip Pencil yu Review

My Review :

NARS describes the color Yu as shocking pink. It’s a cool toned bright pink and one of the prettiest pinks I own. I have been wearing it so much since the day I bought. And I am sure it’s going to get over soon. πŸ˜›

  • it’s pigmented and opaque.
  • it feels ultra light on lips.
  • it goes on satin smooth on lips.
  • it has satiny finish to it. Neither matte, nor glossy.
  • does not settle in fine lines.
  • I find it neither hydrating nor drying. Just the right texture.Β But you definitely need to prep your lips with a lip balm before applying it. Your lips might start feeling dry after while. I apply lip balm on top of it only as the day goes by.
  • stays on all day long. Even after 6-7 hours you’d find a bright pink stain on your lips.
  • does not have any weird taste or smell to it.
  • no lip pencil required to be applied underneath even with such a bright lip color.

The only con is the packaging. It needs to be sharpened and a lot of product wastage happens while sharpening. πŸ™

Rating : 4.8/5

*woot* prettyyyyyy shade and you are looking beautiful *woot* *woot* *woot* *woot*
How do we take background as blurred thru SLR? any suggestion *scared*

Reply

princessmascarenhas March 4, 2014 at 1:56 pm

I think it depends upon where the focus is Neha πŸ˜€ I do a lot of macro photography so all I do to blur out everything else is just focus completely on the object *happydance*

Reply

NehaS March 4, 2014 at 2:28 pm

Thanks:) you usually select Macro mode for blurring a background or any other mode?

Reply

princessmascarenhas March 4, 2014 at 5:54 pm

No U don’t have to keep the macro mode on for all the pictures πŸ™‚ Macro mode is usually for objects. For example , U can use it for reviewing products πŸ˜€ U get a beautiful close-up of that object with a blur background *happy dance* If it’s a person then just focus through the lens completely on that person and then viola! U have an amazing picture with a blurred background just like Rati’s here *happy dance*

And also look for this field called Depth of Field on Ur SLR camera πŸ˜€ that can be adjusted as well *haan ji* and it also depends upon the aperture of your lens πŸ˜€ hope this helps πŸ˜›

Beautiful Rati. I love your lipstick reviews. I am NC42 in MAC and I always see your posts on any lipstick before I buy. But, since you are fairer than me, some of them which look beautiful on you wash me out completely. I love your writing style and that is the reason why I visit IMBB again and again
