Maybelline Colour Drama Instant Velvet Lip Pencils

I'm totally obsessed with lip crayons. They even have their own compartment in my makeup collection. Lucky ducks. I had been itching to get my hands on these ever since they were released in the UK, and finally they're here down under! I picked up the 2 shades Berry Essential, a deep berry shade, and Red Essential, a true classic red. You can see these watched on my lips below. Also, I wasn't intentionally trying to get my lips and shirt to match in the first picture.

Red Essential

These were so easy to apply on the lips. They're creamy and easy to sharpen to get a defined point to help with precision. I didn't find them too drying on my lips which is good, but I suggest just using lip balm before and blotting it off before you put the colour on. And for $9.95, you cannot go wrong. With 10 shades in the range, I'm sure you'll be able to find the one for you. I still love my NARS ones but this is a great drugstore option.

Have you tried these yet, and what are your thoughts?




  1. I was so surprised by the price of these, very reasonable! I have a couple of shades as well; a nude and an orange-y red and I'm loving both! The formula is pretty damn great!

  2. I really want to try these out in store! Not that I need any more lip products heehee but these look fun!
