NARS Luxembourg Satin Lip Pencil

One of the makeup items that I bought during my hiatus was the NARS Satin lip pencil in Luxembourg.  I have to admit, I bought the color solely based on the name.  Luxembourg is named after the Jardin du Luxembourg, an exquisite park I visited last summer while in Paris.  It turns out, I really love the color, go figure.

NARS describes it as a watermelon pink.  I'd say that is pretty accurate.  Besides the color, I LOVE the texture and creaminess of the pencil.  And it is incredibly pigmented.  I barely have to touch it to my lips to get color payoff.  Fair warning though, it stains your lips.  I once wore it two days in a row and after attempting to take it off, had stained lips for another 24 hours.  Another issue, it requires sharpening which wastes product.  For $25, I'd expect this pencil to twist up.

Here it is on my lips:

The next color I'm going to get is Yu, a really pretty bright fuchsia.
