I love a red lip, I really do. If my look is just lacking something, you can bet your bottom dollar a red lip will make you feel that bit extra glam.
My big bug bear with a red lip is getting it perfect. You ain’t looking like a sex goddess with lippie smeared half way up your face petal. Lip liner is always a must and for the klutzy like myself, a lip pencil is always a great idea for a two in one. Especially if you’re out and about.
Step up the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil. Before we get started and we just discuss the shade name? Dragon Girl. I love Game of Thrones and Daenerys is totally my favourite character. Who doesn’t want to be a bad ass Queen with her own dragons?? Exactly.
This lip pencil has my number one favourite quality of any lip product. It lasts. Cuppa tea, still there. Lunch, still there. I don’t need to reapply it every two minutes which is my lipstick pet peeve!!!! It is a tad drying but nothing a coat of lip balm can’t keep at bay and the colour pay off is perfection.
You can pick these babies up here.
Have you tried a lip pencil? Which are your favourites?
