Berry Much Maybelline Color Drama Lip Pencil


I can't believe I almost ignored the Maybelline Color Drama Intense Velvet lip pencils at first. I just wasn't fussed by yet another not quite-a-lipstick lip product but on a bit of a whim I picked one up and fell in love straight away. 

I raved about the Nude Perfection shade a few weeks back and I knew it wouldn't be long before I picked up another shade.


Just the other day 301 Berry Much made it's way into my collection and it cost me less than 5 of my English pounds. It's the darkest in the range, a deep berry tone which is stunning and great for this season.

It looks a lot darker on the pencil than it looks on the lips. It's got a beautiful pinkness to it which doesn't make it as scary as it might seem at first. It's a daring shade but so wearable. Much like the other shade I've tried it sets to a semi-matte finish and is amazingly pigmented.


The formula is lovely and creamy and although the pointed tip makes it easy to apply I recommend using a lip liner as it's such a dark shade you want to ensure there's no bleeding and you get a really sharp line.

They don't smudge and are so long lasting considering just how creamy they are. Even through eating a drinking they last a good few hours without a touch up. 

They are £4.99! Four pounds and ninety nine pence! I'm almost a bit worried that Maybelline are going to realise how much of a bargain these are and put the price up!!

I'm already planning another purchase... which one to go for next?!

Have you tried any of these?

What's your favourite?



  1. Ahh how did I not notice this shade before?! Definitely want to add it to my collection, looks like a gorgeous berry shade! xx

  2. I love these! I have the shade Light It Up and have been looking for Berry Much everywhere but it's always sold out :( xx

  3. I fell in love with Nude Perfection and then bought Berry Much too! I'm actually too scared to wear mine out as bold lips scare me, but it's so affordable I don't mind. It looks gorgeous on you though :)

    I have Red Essential and I really like the formula.
