Unnecessary shopping for lipstick and lip gloss is what I do best. I walked into Blue Mercury and I let the saleswoman trick me into buying a Nars lip pencil. I say “trick” because I just wanted to walk around and I ended up leaving with a bag full of products. I wanted to add some lip pencils to my makeup collection but I never got around to it. So I guess I can thank that saleswoman because I absolutely love it! The color is Het Loo and the Nars website describes it as a cognac shade. There’s no need to apply chapstick before to keep your lips moisturized because the lip pencil already does that. 26 dollars well spent.
