There are a few products that I can't resist hoarding. For example my Chanel Illusion d'Ombres, Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill shadows, Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks and others ahem (blush).I have developed an unhealthy obsession for the NARS Satin Lip Pencils. They are just absolutely great lip pencils. My lastest NARS acquisition is Luxembourg. I was able to score this for USD $20 from Beauty.com from a friends and family event.
Luxembourg is a bright watermelon red pink. On my picture it looks more pink but in fact I see more red in real life.

I am already contemplating what other shades to get but nothing is jumping out at me. Perhaps Rikugien, Hyde Park or Golshan. I think they need to make more shades, perhaps an orange or deeper coral.
Just to recap, Satin Lip Pencils are not the most moisturising lip pencils but with lip balm preparation, it applies wonderfully. They are pigmented with just one swipe. They not dry my lips. They have amazing staying power and actually looks better after a few hours of wear. Although there is wastage from sharpening them, I love how easy they are to tote around.
If you want to buy more than one, might I suggest you wait for Beauty.com Friends and Family events. You can get these at USD $20 as opposed to the normal retail price of USD $25. Selling at local counters for SGD $37. That is almost a $12 savings.
