NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Het Loo

Het Loo is described as “cognac”.

It’s seemingly named after a palace in the Netherlands. That’s kinda interesting.

On me it’s a midtone brown with very slight yellow tones.

On me it’s a straight up brown. It doesn’t look very muddy because of the yellow tones, but I can remember wearing lipstick shades during the 90s that looked like this. Het Loo would have been a bestseller had it been released in 1995. It sure as heck wouldn’t have dried out lips the way matte browns did back then.

It’s available for $25 on NARS and Sephora.
