I found a sharpener at my local drug store for pretty cheap. It's metal and has different holes for different shaped pencils. Hope that helps!

Best way to sharpen these pencils is to get a jumbo sized eyeliner sharpener. I've found that by putting the pencils in the freezer for 5 mins before I sharpen them it makes it easier and I waste less product too.

The matte pencil is the most long wearing of the three. the others are more like glosses lipsticks. None are stains.

This doesn't wear as permanent as a stain but it is long lasting & lasts through meals & drinks. The boldness of the color wore off just a little but was definitely still vibrant enough. I typically use makeup removing wipes at the end of the night to ensure all of it comes off.

This is like a stain. It lasts ALL day, with very little touch up needed. I needed to use Make up remover to remove all the color.

Can you sharpen
I have purchased these pencils in the past and once they wore down, I was unable to access the remaining product in the pencil. I was unable to sharpen. Once the tip wears down is that it?

I have never had a problem sharpening these pencils. If you are finding your normal large sized sharpeners aren't working, I would purchase the Nars sharpener to ensure it will fit.

Sephora's sharpener has two different sized wholes and the bigger one fits the Nars lip pencil and sharpens it perfectly. Plus it's cheap. Give it a try!

It's not a matte lip color that's for sure. If I prep and prime my lips before lining and filling with a matching liner, then the satin color stays on a bit better. As far as kisses, you may be able to get away with a few LIGHT pecks, but odds are you'll still end up a SO with matching lip color. I always tell my SO it's a great color on him.

I wouldn't recommend it for that. It has some staying power on your lips, and I found that it transfers even hours later. (I tried it about 4-5 hours after application.)

NARS for sure, at least on me. I have Urban Decay in Love Child and although it is a very nice shade and I will continue to use it, NARS definitely has greater staying power. They are my go-to for going out, etc.

I would reccommend going in stores and having a Sephora representative help you, they can match shade best fit for you in person. Also these colors look better in person than they do online.

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!
