NARS Lip Pencil Dupes


Hello! High end makeup is great, but it is expensive so I love finding great inexpensive dupes for high-end makeup. I love that there are so many great drugstore products that are just as great as high end makeup.  I was so happy when I got these NARS lip pencils as my Sephora Insider Birthday Gift because they aren't something that I would have picked up for myself. I ended up totally loving them, but since they are expensive I was determined to find dupes for them that were affordable. After looking for awhile I finally ended up with some great dupes, the Burt's Bees lip crayons which are very similar to the NARS lip pencils. Keep on reading if you want to see the dupes in action! 


On the left there are swatches of the NARS Lip Pencils and on the Right are swatches of the Burt's Bees Lip Crayons. The NARS lip pencils come in two different finishes, satin and velvet matte while the Burt's Bees lip crayons come in what I feel is a satin finish. 


These are the two nude shades which are the (Top swatch) NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien link! and the ( Bottom Swatch) Burt's Bees Lip Crayon in Sedona Sands. link! I know that in the swatches the NARS one looks more pink and the Burts Bees one looks more brown, but they look very similar on the lips. I think that the only difference is that the Burts Bees lip crayon looks a bit lighter that the NARS one when they are on the lips. They both have the same satin finish and aren't drying on the lips. Both of these colors are the perfect your lips, but better kind of colors that really go with any makeup look. 


The top swatch is the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella link! and the bottom swatch is the Burt's Bees Lip Crayon in Napa Vineyard link! which are both a true red shade. The NARS lip pencil has a matte finish while the Burt's Bees lip crayon has a satin finish, but that is really the only difference between these two products. They are both creamy, highly pigmented, and provide long lasting color. You can easily make the Burts Bees lip crayon a matte finish by dusting a bit of translucent powder over the top. 

Overall, I think that the Burt's Bees Lip Crayons are a great dupe for the NARS Lip Pencils. The Burts Bees crayons are really great quality and I think they were just as amazing as the NARS Lip Pencils without the high end price! I had a lot of fun finding these dupes and I can't wait to find more dupes for high end makeup so please leave your favorite drugstore dupes for high end makeup in the comments below. 

See you soon,
