Yesterday while picking up a refill of my favorite blush, Nars Orgasm (if you don't own it, you should, as it has long been called the best and most universally flattering blush in history), and I could not resist browsing the Velvet Matte Lip Pencils. I have bought them before and always loved the fool-proof application, the long wear, and the vibrant colors. This picture is of me wearing it in Pop Life, a great red with the perfect amount of coral in it. It has a creamy consistency, but the matte feeling of lipstick that I adore. I am currently wearing it in sweat pants and a t-shirt while working from home and my strut to pick up the mail from the driveway was super glam.
The fun salesgirl from the counter also introduced me to their new chunky pencil, Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil. Basically it is the same concept, except these pencils have a shiny finish and a bit of sparkle. they are great on their own or layering and it stays on so much better than a sticky gloss. I bought Happy Days, as the color worked well with my Matte Pencils and on it's own for a hint of pink shine.
Loving my new lip finds. What shade is on yours?
