I was a little skeptical about this product before trying it out… long-wearing, high-gloss, full-coverage color in an all-in-one pencil? Well, after putting it to the ultimate test (New York Fashion Week, that is)… you better believe it.
This lip pencil swayed me with it’s gorgeous hot pink color, which I was lacking in my lipstick collection (I was loving OCC Lip Tar in Anime for the trend, but I wanted something a bit easier to apply in a pinch). I also loved the fact it was a pencil- SO much easier to apply (first as a lip liner, then fill it in, and pile it on for high-shine). It wasn’t until I wore it for 10-hours straight one day at NYFW that I knew this product was a winner.
With 5 shades, a comfortable, smooth and intense application- this is one of my favorite lip products now. I wish there were more shades (nude pink please?) so hopefully Urban Decay comes out with more. They are a tad expensive, but for the convenience and quality I say its a sure-fire win. Sure it needs a bit of re-applying during the day because the gloss wears off, but its so easy to touch-up that it’s not really a problem.
Now stay tuned as I compare it to the more affordable alternative Lip Flash by Milani!
