May was my birthday month and so of course I got the Sephora bday sample. It came with two mini Nars lip pencils: Rikugien and Cruella. The first thing I thought was, YASS Cruella, I'm going to rock that red lip. I didn't care for Rikugien, which is a satin finish whereas Cruella is a matte finish. A few weeks later, it's safe to say that I reach for Rikugien nearly every day.
The best way I can describe it is SO cliché, but it's that kind of "my lips but better" colour. It also has a slight frosty finish when you swatch it, but on the lips it doesn't look frosty at all. I like to wear it with the Urban Decay Ozone lip pencil which is a primer for lip colours. Paired together, the colour lasts for hours and hours. It's also such an easy colour as it goes well with all different kinds of makeup.
