MAYBELLINE | Color Drama Intense Velvet Lip PencilsMonday, March 16, 2015
I feel like I've been waiting yonks for the Maybelline Color Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencils* (could you get a longer name?) to get their NZ release. It seemed like years had gone by since I was reading about these things on the UK blogs, but finally they are here, and they are blimen' good.
Matte lips are my finish of choice so I knew I was really going to like these ones. They come housed in pencils (much smaller/shorter than I expected for some reason), that need a jumbo sharpener to sharpen them (a little bit of a pain, but I can live with that). These are crazy pigmented and creamy in just one swipe, but after a little while on the lips they do start to dry down and that makes them last pretty much all day, with a little touch up here and there. The pencil point makes them easy to apply and you can get quite precise with them (great for the bolder shades) and there is a beautiful selection of colours. I have In With Coral, a vibrant coral pink, and Light It Up, a true classic red.
I'm already eyeing up a few of the other shades, and to be honest at NZD $11.99 a pop these are a complete steal and I could easily end up with the whole collection if I can't hold myself back... You can find them at any Maybelline stand, or online via. Beauty Bliss (free shipping nationwide).
Have you got any of the Color Drama Velvet Lip Pencils? What is your favourite shade?
