I was over the moon when the sales associate with the MUA(“make up artist”..isn’t that cute) tattoo in Sephora turned me on to these lip pencils. I don’t remember what I went in for that day, but I do know I ended up getting a mini make over with these pencils. I’m a late bloomer when it comes to lipstick so I’d never heard of lip pencils like these before.
They are matte and my lips are chronically dry which is not the best combination, but I loved the colors and the ease of application so much I said what the heck and bought them anyway.
Damned is a very nice every day mauveish, burgundy color. It photographed much lighter than it appears in person. Dragon Girl is a really nice bright poppy red. It’s like this nail polish color for your lips. Train bleu is all about the drama. It reminds of that lip color that Lauryn Hill use to always wear back in the day.
The pencils are $24 each and can be found in stores and on Sephora.com.
I'm a sucker for sparkle and shine so it might take me a while to try a full color pencil. I have to avoid lip dryness too… so I use a shea lip butter under any product. Do you pre-moisturize?
@pVI:I pre and post moisturize :). My lips are just chronically dry.
Pretty! I'm actually surprised that I like Train Bleu the most because it looks so natural and effortless! Oh and of course anything Lauryn Hill inspired is already on its way to awesomeness 🙂
My sister loves Train Bleu. I tend to reach for the red Cruella more. I took some pictures of my updated Nars collection last year. I just need to swatch them all 😜
