Hey ya’ll. Today, I bring to you a Lippie Pencil from ColourPop in I Heart This ($5.00). There’s actually a heart in the place of the word “heart”, but my blog acts like it doesn’t know what <3 means…!
I ventured to the lippie pencils because they do not contain synthetic wax. I like their eyeshadows enough to buy more and these lippie pencils (so far just I Heart This) really performed! I started by applying lip balm because I figured these would dry my lips out. Application was nearly impossible on top of the lip balm. I wiped everything off and just applied a light coat of lip balm. I let it penetrate about 5-7 minutes and then used the lippie pencil.
I started coloring in my lips starting from the inside, and gradually brought the color out to the line. I lined my lips last. I was pleasantly surprised how evenly this went on and the staying power was impressive. I ate a bowl of clam chowder and I only had slight color removal on the inside of my lips. After I reapplied to that area, this color stayed on me all day until I came home for a bath; literally over 11 hours. Also, there is very little transfer when drinking.

I am very impressed with these pencils. I’m sure they were meant to be lip liners, but I will be using them as full-on lipsticks. These could be a great alternative for the more expensive liquid lipsticks.
