Maybelline recently launched their Color Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencil in Pakistan. It comes in 11 different shades. The range has a nude, pinks and reds. Each Pencil retails for Rs. 750/-
When I first saw these lip Pencils, I was so excited to try them and I instantly decide to buy at least 2 shades but when I went to the Maybelline counter, the girl told me that there are 10 shades although there are 11 shades. Anyways I tried on few shades and ended up buying only one 🙁 The only nude color in “Nude perfection” was not available and others were either too dark or too bright and I always like getting light and nude shades. The shade I bought is “Love my Pink”.
Since I only bought one shade I cannot comment on the intensity of colors. Love my pink is a very nice pink color with purple undertones. When I wore it with pink dress it looks pink and when I wore it with a purple dress, it reflects a purple tone along with pink. So I am very pleased with my choice of shade 😀
It really gives the velvet look and stays for 3 to 4 hours before fading. But if you eat and drink with this lip pencil on, reapplication is required.
The only thing I don’t like about it is that it makes my lips dry and sets into my lip lines. I have naturally dry lips but I have used many matte and velvet lipsticks and not all sets in my lip lines. This particular pencil makes my lips more dry. Other than that I really like it and would like to try more shades specially Nude Perfection.
