It's never too early to start thinking about summer and with the weather being in the upper 70's this week, that's all I've been thinking about lately. I decided to start taking out my favorite summer products and got reacquainted with my love for this Nars lip pencil in the shade Rikugien. I rarely hear about this shade so I thought a post dedicated to it would be a good idea! It really shouldn't even be called a lip pencil since it goes on more like a lipstick (and since you need a lip pencil for this look! haha). The texture is a bit dry and it's a part of the "satin" collection which might explain why it's considered a lip pencil so I recommend putting some lip balm on beforehand to prevent dryness.
The color is a gorgeous neutral rosey-bronze color that's not too brown and not too pink but something in between. I usually gravitate towards the rose shades which goes nicely with a tan during the summertime. What I love about this lip color is that it's light enough to go with a smokey eye but powerful enough to stand on it's own with a simple eye look. Overall, I prefer products that I can use everyday and actually get my money's worth and this is defiantly one of them.
Here's a link to it on Sephora!
Hope you enjoyed this post, what's your favorite products for the summer?
