Canadian beauties, keep an eye out for these new Annabelle Twist Up Retractable Lipstick Crayons ($9.95 CAD) hitting drugstores this month! These were one of my favorite new products to check out at the Annabelle & Marcelle Fall 2012 Preview Event in Montreal a little while ago- the shade range is awesome (12 in total)!
These twist-up lipsticks have medium-to-full coverage color with a gorgeous semi-glossy sheen. They are super creamy and comfortable! At first, I was a little hesitant about ditching the sharpener, because with lipstick crayons, I love using them to first line my lips then fill them in (and a precise point is needed)… but I’ve been using them for a while and I really have found the point to stay! Naturally, most of us apply the lipstick on a slant, so it’s actually keeping point nice and precise!
I wish I had more shades to show you guys- but I’ll definitely be picking up some more when I see them hitting the stores. This shade in Absolute is a gorgeous nude pink; it gives an awesome illusion of fuller lips for my skin tone! They also have some awesome bold shades coming too- so I’ll be sure to pick them up.
They are fairly long lasting for such a smooth, creamy lip color… but I do notice a bit of drying towards the end of wear. It’s nothing uncomfortable though. Also- keep it on hand for touch-ups because it didn’t survive lunch either.
