If you haven’t seen the NARS Final Cut collection for spring, I recommend Googling it ASAP. If you love pink and peach, it is a dream come true! I picked up two blushes and this lip pencil: Descanso, which is described as “tea rose”.
It has a satin finish true to its name, and on my lips, it leans more peach than pink. I have one other NARS lip pencil in the shade New Lover, which I got in a little freebie bag from Sephora some time ago. Like that pencil, this is very comfortable to wear, and texture is very creamy. If you’re suffering from dry winter lips like I am, this formula is a pleasure to wear.
It isn’t drying to wear and it lasts for several hours on me. I’ve mentioned this before, but I prefer lippies that don’t wear like iron and would rather have to reapply than to have something on me for hours at a time, but that is personal preference.
While Descanso is not super unique, it is beautiful. It has warm undertones and is a beautiful shade to wear year round, though it will really shine in the spring and summer months.
I really love this pencil and find the color flattering with my skin tone and complexion. I foresee this in my January favorites, because I love it so much. This pencil is pricey and will set you back $25, but that’s no surprise from NARS.
Do you purchase anything from the Final Cut collection?
