Ardency Inn comparable to?

Has anyone tried the Ardency Inn brand yet?  From a price point (at least lipstick) it appears to be in the mid-range (Laura Mercier, Bite, Bobbi Brown, etc...).  It is comparable in quality to those brands?

I brought the Americana Natural lip color in Essex and I really like it, mainly because I have such a hard time finding nudes that actually go with my skin tone. I've only worn it once (today!), matte finish without drying my lips out and I reapplied once after eating. I want to try the lip vinyl next.

What is your skin tone?  Have you used any of the NARS lipstick pencils?  I'm curious how they compare.  Thanks for the review - so few have bought this brand.

Maybe they should come out with a collection of minis????

Dark with beige undertones. I've only ever tried Nars' matte pencils. I feel like the Ardency wasn't as drying but I can wear my Nars without having to retouch (with normal wear).

I haven't tried the brand but, I'm really curious about the ARDENCY INN AMERICANA Natural Lip Color Pencil. The reviews are really good and the nudes look pretty!

I have seriously been considering their mascara but I just haven't heard enough about this brand to commit to purchasing.  All of their products look great.

I have not tried it but have had the Custom Color Concentrate sitting in my basket for a week or two. I am so tempted to buy it as I really  like the idea of being able to add a little color to my moisturizer or primer that I already use and love. 

 

I have some foundation samples coming in the mail today and if they don't work out, I will probably go ahead and order it. If I do, I will definitely post about it!

Even though I'm on a no buy this month, I do have my eye on:

Hi kimchikween,

 

I had a whole post for you and its gone! Darn, but I wanted to tell you that looking at Ardency Inn, the style and image seems very similar to that of Bite or Smashbox- trendy and fashionable yet practical!

 

The Natural Lip Color Pencil looks similar to the Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo:

and the lip base looks close to that by Soap & Glory as well as Tokyo Milk:

Femme Fatale Collection Lip Elixirs A Great Kisser™ Lip Moisture Balm

That Boom Base Lip Balm looks very interesting too. I just added it to my Loves. That's something I would definitely use.
