I haven't tried out the last Nars product you listed but the difference between the first two are that one has a creamy formula and the other has a dry formula. So for me the satin lip pencil works better on me because I kinda have dry lips and the matte lip pencil will dry mine up even more. Also matte formulas will give you a more flat, non-shiny finish whereas the satin formula will give you just that. It depends on how well the product works with your lips and really what look you want to go for.

The difference is in the finishes. The velvet gloss pencils, are glossy, and a little more sheer than the matte and satin counterparts. The velvet matte pencils have a completely matte finish, opaque colour, and long lasting abilities. The new satin pencils are a mix between the two, has the opaque-ness of the velvet mattes, but have shine like the velvet glosses! I love all these pencils for their Vitamin E enriched, long-lasting colour, and keep collecting them because their is so many fabulous colour options!
