Maybelline Colour Drama Lip Pencils

Maybelline Colour Drama Lip Pencils - £4.99
A couple of weeks ago, Boots had one of their wonderful (yet very dangerous) 3 for 2 offers across all makeup. I only went in to get one thing but when I saw this offer I obviously couldn’t resist making the most of it. I have wanted to try one of these Maybelline Colour Drama lip pencils for a while now so I thought this was the perfect opportunity. I went for the shades ‘Keep It Classy’ and ‘Minimalist’.
Keep It Classy is the most gorgeous girly pink shade - it is quite light and has a gorgeous subtle glittery finish to it. This has become a daytime favourite for me, as I am a lover of pink shades and it isn't too bright so it goes with most outfits. Minimalist is a lovely raspberry dark pink shade - though it can look more red at times depending on what light you are in. It has such a nice creamy texture but gives a more matte finish and doesn't have the glittery finish that Keep It Classy has. 

The lip liners are so lovely to apply, both are really creamy and moisturising. The staying power is good, but not as good some other pencils I have tried. I think that is because these don't have a matte finish, which does mean they tend to rub off the lips easier. They are perfect if you have dry lips like me as they are not drying at all, whereas I find quite a lot of lip pencils can be. I love lip pencils like this - they are so convenient for a quick top up of colour if you are in a rush and don’t have time to properly apply a lip liner and lipstick. I find them absolutely perfect to keep in your handbag for when you are on the go.

These lip pencils cost £4.99 each which I think is such a good price! They have so many other shades available and I hope to get my hands on some more soon. Have you tried any of these Maybelline lip pencils? What do you think?
