MAYBELLINE COLOR DRAMA VELVET LIP PENCIL - 'NUDE PERFECTION' REVIEW


Hello beautiful people!
I hope your week has been fabulous so far! I am feeling a little bit "meh" (yep, seems to be the most accurate way to describe myself in one word). I think the flu is coming after me and I'm currently in that stage where I could either wake up tomorrow and feel good OR be stuck in bed looking like a zombie. 

I decided to ban myself from purchasing any more beauty products for this month - except if I get the chance to grab Mac's Velvet Teddy which I have been after for weeks (see the struggle here? Spending bans are a nightmare). As a self proclaimed lip product addict I always do ask myself how many lipstick do I REALLY need. Maybe the absence of lip pencils / crayons in my collection made this purchase justifiable because I just couldn't wait to get feature gem on the blog. 

The Maybelline Color Drama velvet lip pencils have been so hyped up from the moment they got released that I needed to see what was happening and what the magic behind them was. I have been rocking mine for the past couple of weeks now and can safely say that I'm lovin it.

The Product : The packaging isn't anything fancy and you could easily walk past it however the colour selection they have for this lip kohl line is rather promising - from nudes to reds to plums there is a wide selection for everyone! 
Price : £ 4.99
The Finish : Matte (obviously). Definitely moisturise your lips well before applying it since it can be a little bit drying. This can be considered a dupe for the Nars Velvet lip pencils however I find those to be more on the lustre finish. 
The Longevity : I do believe these last well a good few hours however they don't resist the food test which means you have to carry the product in your purse to re-apply after meals - not an issue since I'm sure most of us do anyway!
Final Thoughts : I am totally all smiles about this product. I definitely think the market needed something different from the whole lip lacquer / matte liquid lipsticks and this seems to be the thing filling the gab - especially in the highstreet. They're affordable, fun and overall great to use. I might pop back into Boots and grab a few more shades. 




Excuse the messy brows, definitely need to get them threded this week. Helppp. 
Anyway, me rocking the shade Nude Perfection

Have you tried this product? What have been your favourite beauty releases so far?
