MAC Lip Pencil
Advantages: stays on well, creamy texture glides on easily
I don't own a huge amount of lip pencils but I went for this in the shade 'Spice' after seeing it in a magazine. I usually wear it with my Mac lipstick in the shade 'Faux' as the two really compliment each other well.
Mac is available obviously in the Mac stores, in some department stores and also online. There website is one of my favourites for make-up shopping as the swatches are very clear as are the descriptions.
* A pencil designed for shaping, lining or filling in the lip
* Lip Pencils have a smooth, creamy texture that is perfect for lining the lips or filling them in.
* The colour of Lip Pencils is protected by Vitamin E, which acts as an anti-oxidant
One thing I've noticed with lip liners in the past is some are very hard and tend to drag the lips when you apply them. The end result being a really harsh drawn on line that doesn't blend nicely with your chosen shade of lipstick. I think it was once fashionable for your lip liner to be very noticable but not so much anymore. The texture of this lip liner is creamy and soft so during application the colour glides on smoothly. The liner stays on very well and helps to prevent your lipstick bleeding, very important especially when wearing very vibrant shades.
The pencil is available in 33 shades which is very impressive, the colours range from very natural to very bright so there should be something for everybody.
The pencil is very basic, it's black with a black lid. It does have a coloured band around the bottom showing you which shade it is, I find this very helpful when I'm rushing around in the morning.
VALUE FOR MONEY:
The price of the pencil is £11.50, I've had mine for ages and still have a lot left so I'm pleased with the value for money. The quality is excellent and I will definately be repurchasing.
Summary: brilliant lip liner
