I spotted these lip pencils whilst on a late night chocolate hunt at my local Tesco store. I couldn’t decide which colour to pop in my basket and ended up buying five. Although I’m wishing I had bought more as these short little chubby pencils are a fantastic find.

The pencils are all in beautiful colours and a excellent formula – semi-matte but still creamy and not too drying. Comparisons to the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils are obvious – they’re quite similar in finish. Maybelline’s lip pencils tend to wear off without leaving a stain, are smaller and a great low budget alternative. At £4.99 you won’t be horrifically upset if you lost one of these babies on a night out.

They’re lightweight and easy to carry around in your purse or pocket. I like the simple black pencil with the colour swatch at the bottom so I can see what I’m reaching for out of my lippy drawer.

The first shade I have swatched is “Light it Up” – a bright pink toned red. My favourite by far is “Nude Essential.” I’ve already had to sharpen this shade as it’s perfect for trying out Kylie Jenner inspired lips. “Keep it Classy” is a surprisingly deep colour, a pinky plum shade that will suit most skin tones. Next is “Minimalist” which is a sheer wash of nude-y pink on the lips. The pencil is slightly shimmery but this doesn’t translate well on the lips. It’s a great colour for Spring. And last but not forgotten is “Berry Much” – the perfect Autumn/Winter berry shade. It’s deep, dark and great for those who enjoy wearing a bold lip colour.

I highly recommend keeping your lips well scrubbed and moisturised before applying these as they will highlight flaky dry lips. I am a big lip product lover and these Colour Drama pencils tick all the boxes.

    • They are!
      I didn’t think I’d like the lip pencils at all as I’m such a massive lipstick fan, but these have me converted. Applying a lip pencil is so much easier and precise.
