Jumping on the band wagon yet again with these gorgeous lip pencils. The world and his wife are going absolutely crazy for these lip pencils at the moment, so of course, I needed to get myself some of the action!
These lip pencils are very much like the NARS matte lip pencils although Maybelline's version are a little smaller in size and the NARS pencils are in plastic packaging rather than wood. Apart from that they are an extremely similar product, and the Maybelline version is a lot cheaper!
Currently there is 9 shades in the collection which range from nudes to pinks to reds. Unfortunately in my local Boots they were only stocking four of the shades, so I only managed to pick up "Love My Pink" and "Light It Up". Love Me Pink does exactly what it says on the tin and is a lovely bright pink shade. Light It Up is more of a classic red shade and is my personal favourite as it looks fantastic on my pale skintone!
I have to say that I am absolutely in love with these lip pencils. For £4.99 you really cannot fault the quality and they can be used as both a lip-liner and a lipstick. The pigmentation is incredible, in fact they might have the strongest pigmentation I've ever seen in a lip product. They also have such a gorgeous velvety texture which feels smooth and silky on the lips. Staying power is fantastic as well - because it's a pencil there is barely any feathering and the product seems to stay on your lips for ages! My only complaint is that after a few hours it can make your lips feel a tiny bit dry but it's not really that big of a deal as you can just use some Vaseline over the top if it's really bothering you that much.
I'm definitely going to be investing in the whole collection because I just love these lip pencils so, so much. What do you think? Have you tried them out yet?
You can get your hands on Maybelline's lip pencils by popping into your nearest Boots or Superdrug.
