I'm Back!!! I took a little break the last few weeks to recharge the blogging batteries, and I have returned with the fabulous Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil (€18.50) in the shade "Blackmail". With 5 new shades to join the lineup I was delighted to be sent this to try out.
I have to admit first off I'm not used to lip pencils. I own the grand total of three and dodn't get on super with them due to how dry they are. This, however, I jumped into trying to see how different it could be and if I could easily use it. The colour also was totally out of my comfort zone but I embraced it.
Blackmail is described as a deep berry wine and has a matte finish. I found applying it creamy and it stayed put ALL day which was super impressive. I did pair the lipliner with my Bourjois Colour Lip Boost in Russian Plus to soften the look and it worked a treat and then I feathered the lip liner in a bit.
I found wearing the lip pencil as an all over colour a tad bit drying on my lips and a bit patchy but I have tried another URBAN DECAY GLIDE-ON LIP PENCIL in a different shade and didn't have the same problem, so I think it's just because of how matte it was and the deepness of the colour. A light hand is how I use this pencil. That's not to say that this is not a great product, I am super impressed by the packaging because the barrel is the shade colour so easy to find. The longevity is excellent, and there is a lip pencil shade to match any of the Revolution Lipsticks! I would definitely pick up more along the way as I loved the defined look and how it lasted through lunch and dinner.
The lip pencils are made with vitamin E, jojoba oil, and cottonseed oil, to bring a moisturising lip product that glides on and keep lips nourished.
