I've been loving all of the new lip products that have been released lately. We've come a long way from the traditional lipstick with the releases of liquid lipsticks and twist-up crayons.
I'm so glad I picked it up. The color drama lipstick looks more like a giant eyeliner pencil. You sharpen it rather than the chubby sticks/matte balms that have recently been on the market which twist up. I'm thinking it was to save on packaging and this way your lipstick is more affordable as you're not paying for a plastic casing and twist up mechanism. This will also keep the pointed tip too which I found difficult with the twist up versions.
They've kept it very simple. They describe it as an intense velvet lip pencil -which is a perfect description given the great colour pay-off and soft consistency. It's really creamy and the pointed tip makes it easy to be precise. I found it stayed on a good few hours without smudging at all.
My lips are really dry at the moment so I had lib balm on underneath and didn't find that a problem, maybe on it's own it would cling slightly to dry patches but a lip balm solves that.
I love the colour, it's great for everyday but you still look 'done' if you wore it on a night out. It sways a little towards the darker 90's trend lip without being too bold and it has a semi-matte finish. I'm really excited to try some brighter colours!
I love it and I'm definitely going to be picking up more shades.
Have you tried these yet?
