NARS Satin Lip Pencils in Biscayne Park & Rikugien

NARS recently released Satin Lip Pencils ($25) which are a selection of high-impact, fashion-forward shades in a rich, creamy satin finish that stays on all day.
What Sephora says:

What it does:
The Satin Lip Pencil dresses up lips in statement shades that seduce with rich, color-bright pigments, while drenching them in decadent moisture. This modern, long-wearing, vitamin-enriched formula for lips looks sumptuously saturated and dramatically defined.

What else you need to know:
The Satin Lip Pencil Category shade designations are all named for parks and gardens around the world.

Biscayne Park Satin Lip Pencil is described by NARS as a pink guava. To me it’s a medium nude with brownish pink undertones. This color is a warm nude that is very versatile (work friendly) and will be easy for most skin tones to wear.  Biscayne Park applies smoothly with opaque coverage.  The finish and texture is super creamy with a definite satin finish, hence the name.  I didn’t find this formula drying at all but it was super moisturizing either.

Rikugien Satin Lip Pencil is described by NARS as a rose pink. I found it to be a medium pinky rose with a frost finish. It gives mostly opaque coverage, not as much as Biscayne Park; the color can be built up. The texture is also creamy and glides on lips easily. Overall both shades are a win for me!
