I’ve been really loving this lip pencil and find the mini size so easy to toss in my purse! I would definitely recommend this although I’m not sure if I would buy the full size for $28! A bite beauty lip pencil is in the Sephora Gimme Some Lips set again this holiday season so that’s a great way to try out this product!
This little guy came in my last year’s Sephora Got Lips set and I just got around to using it now! The color is described as a plum rose and I thought was more appropriate for the fall. This is a matte lip pencil that’s quickly becoming a favorite of mine! Read on for more of my thoughts!
*PS. sorry for the bad photos. I wanted to get a post out before I head out of town for the week so I had to take them in bad lighting 🙁 *
I have the mini version of this but the full size retails for $28 which is a bit pricey.
Pigmentation wise, there’s a lot of color pay off! It’s pretty much opaque on my lips. I also really liked the color on my lips. It’s a deeper shade that will be gorgeous for fall but it’s totally work appropriate. Lastly, the formulation is really great as well. It’s a very creamy product and there’s no stickiness to it at all. I’d say it feels like a satin finish even though the color is matte, if that makes sense.
The only bad thing I guess is that you need to be careful with application and since the point can get dull, it could be hard to stay within the lip lines.
Swatch on my hand. It looks like there’s shimmer but it’s a completely matte color.

Definitely going to try and update this picture with a more accurate color 😛
