MAYBELLINE COLOUR DRAMA INTENSE LIP PENCILS


A recent release from Maybelline is their Colour Drama Lip Pencils. There is so much hype and these are spread right across the beauty world. And it's totally justified. I love lip products of all kinds, and these are no exception. The ease of use combined with an awesome colour range and great quality colours, I think we have found a winner. These are a hot comparison for the NARS Velvet Lip Pencils, which I haven't tried but I hear Maybelline gives them some good competition at a fraction of the price. 


The pencils are small but chubby. They are easy to hold on to and easy to apply to the lips relatively neatly. Colour range is great, including nudes, pinks, purples and reds. What I really love about these is the incredible pigmentation and creaminess, and the way that they last on the lips without drying. It might be useful to have a lipliner on hand for some of the deeper shades, but overall I can't really fault these. Just remember, you will need to sharpen these (and find a sharpener that fits). 

110 PINK SO CHIC
A really deep "pink" that borders on purple. Pretty and a great colour for the autumn/winter season.  

310 BERRY MUCH
So similar to Pink So Chic, but has a bit more deep plum through it. Really, you probably don't need both shades. 

410 FAB ORANGE
Super bright orange-based red shade. Looks awesome with warmer skin tones and is a great hit of colour, especially throughout summer.

510 RED ESSENTIAL
My new favourite red. Such a beautiful deep blue-based red. Looks phenomenal against white teeth and most skin tones. Super pigmented and looks beautiful for hours.

630 NUDE PERFECTION
A really nice brown-peachy nude that again is perfectly pigmented. Would suit most light-medium skin tones. 

You'll notice that I don't own many pink shades, and this is purely because they don't suit me and I don't really wear them often. I might pick up 150 Fuchsia Desire but then I think my collection will be complete!


Have you tried these pencils? I hope you love them like I do!
