Saturated Colour Multitasker Pencil And LIPSstickFriday, June 17, 2016
It's no secret I love lip products, so when I was kindly offered the chance to try a couple of lip products from the brand Saturated Colour I said yes please. I have to admit I hadn't heard of the brand before I received the email but after researching the brand for this post they are definitely a brand not to miss and I couldn't wait to try the products I received.

The Multitasker - Lip Eye & Face Pencil
The Multitasker is a pencil that can be used on the lips, eyes, eyebrows, face and body and comes in an amazing 20 shades. When I was asked to choose a shade I really was spoilt for choice and actually chose 2 shades and said I would be happy with either, so I was really pleased to receive Magnetic Melon, a bright orange shade.
The shade range is extremely varied with 20 shades from pinks and peaches to blues and browns, the pencil can be used for so many different things, whether you just want a lip liner to wear alone or under lipstick or you want to create vibrant body or face art, there really is something for everyone, the Multitasker is a fantastically versatile product and the price is amazing at just £3.50.
I have used the pencil as a lip liner to line my lips, I have filled in my lips with it and wore it as a lipstick, I have used it as a blush and used it sheered out and used it on my eyes. The pencil is extremely pigmented, super soft and applies like a dream, I did wonder how I would apply it to my cheeks and eyes and if it would feel sharp but there wasn't an issue at all, on my cheeks, I used the pencil on it's side and created stripes on the apples of my cheeks and a little further up and blended the product with my duo fibre 130 brush from MAC, it blended beautifully on my skin and lasted all day without fading, it looked lovely and is a stunning blush shade. I have since applied the pencil in the same way to my cheeks but blended it out using my fingers or my Beauty Blender and both times it looked lovely so it's all down to personal preference how you blend it out as all the methods I tried worked really well for me.
I like to wear coral on my eyes sometimes during the summer so I put some of the pencil on the back of my hand and sheered it out with my finger so it was more of a coral shade and used a combination of my finger and an eyeshadow brush to apply it to my eyes, it applied well and the pencil lasted all day without fading or creasing, it is worth mentioning that I do always use an eye primer before applying my makeup.
The LIPSstick also in the shade Magnetic Melon is stunning, I don't own an orange lipstick and did wonder if I would like it, it is a lovely bright orange shade, perfect for summer but a shade I would wear all year round and despite my reservations about the shade being right for me, I love it! The lipstick applies beautifully and feels extremely nourishing on the lips, it is super soft and extremely pigmented giving a vivid opaque finish in just one swipe, the finish is semi matte and the lipstick is extremely long lasting. I have used the lipstick on it's own and worn it over the Multitasker pencil and both times the wear time was incredible. The lipstick fades away nicely from the centre of the lips so I wasn't left with an unsightly ring around my lips, and it removes with ease with my makeup remover, makeup wipes or cleanser without the need for scrubbing.
To buy the Multitasker Pencil and the matching mini LIPSstick it is just £5.00 for both products which is an incredible price.
