Many of you are familiar with Annabelle Cosmetics but are you aware that they have some of the most gorgeous lip crayons on the market?! When it comes to lip pencils I am usually a bit weary because I have encountered formulas that were too transparent, too oily or too dry but the retractable pencils by Annabelle are wonderful! In fact they are some of the best lip pencils I have tried and they provide stunning color.
Now that I have raved about them you are probably wondering what makes them a cut above the rest; for starters the pigmentation and the rich color is impressive for a crayon. At first glance they look decent but when applied, they drench lips in vibrant silky color.
The shades I have are Kinky Pink and Cherry which are mesmerizing and opaque enough to tempt me into purchasing all 24 colors! The texture is a combination of gloss, cream and lipstick with a lightweight, velvety formula that hangs in the delicate balance between shiny and matte. The pencils also double as lip liners for easy application and the smooth texture moisturizes with omega oils and shea butter.
The shades are grouped according to hue such as: Dramatic Bordeaux, Essential Nudes, Glamorous reds, Vibrant Pinks and Trendy Basics. They are long-lasting and tend not to feather.
The pencils retail for $9.95 (Canadian) and can be found in most drug stores including Shoppers Drug Mart. You can also find them on the website HERE. I definitely recommend trying these...I want them all!
