Recently I've read so many blog posts raving about these new Colour Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencils from Maybelline, I knew I had to try them out. Priced at £4.99 these are an absolute steal and I've heard they are a great dupe for the NARS lip pencils which are almost 4 times the price of these. I actually got these three colours on a 3 for 2 so it was less than £10 for all of them!

I was quite lucky when I was buying mine in Superdrug as they had all the colours to choose from, I've heard a lot of people say that they have almost sold out at their local stores! The collection has 10 different shades to choose from, including dark, intense purples and reds to subtle pinks and nudes.

When I first saw these pencils I thought they would be quite drying on my lips as they didn't look as creamy as some other lip pencils I have, however once I had applied them they were just as creamy and moisturising as a normal lipstick. The smaller tip of the pencil also provides you with a seamless application and doesn't smudge around the edges of the lips - you can also use them as a lip liner!

Fab Orange - I was drawn to this shade as I'm really into orangey red shades, this is a great dupe for MAC Lady Danger. 

In with Coral - This is a neon coral shade really is perfect for summer, the pigmentation of this is lovely and really makes your lips pop.

Minimalist - This is one of paler colours from the collection and has a slight hint of shimmer, it has more of a sheer finish compared to the other colours. The finish of this one reminds me a lot of the MAC lustre finish so its great for a adding some shimmer to your lips.

I hope you're all having a lovely weekend and enjoyed reading my blog post! 

What do you all think of these lip pencils?
