Saturated Colour Multitasker Pencil And LIPSstick

Hello Lovelies

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. 

Saturated Colour Multitasker Pencil - Magnetic Melon

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

The LIPSstick

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.

My Overall Thoughts On Both Products

The first time I wore both products I wore the Mulitasker on my cheeks as a blush and wore it all over my lips with the LIPSstick over the top and I was absolutely blown away by both products, the pigmentation of both products is incredible, they both applied effortlessly and the pencil blended out beautifully on my cheeks. The wear time of both products was amazing, the blush lasted all day until it was time to remove my makeup, it didn't fade at all. The wear time of the lipstick was absolutely incredible, I applied it at 9.40am and when I removed my makeup at 8pm I was still wearing the lipstick, it had faded away a little but it was still very evident I was wearing orange lipstick, I hadn't eaten anything but I had been drinking bottled water throughout the day and my friend visited for a few hours so I had been chatting a lot, I couldn't believe that over 10 hours later the lipstick was still very much on my lips, it is incredible. 
To be honest I wouldn't ever have picked up one of the Multitasker pencils but I would definitely buy more in different shades now I have tried the Magnetic Melon, they are a brilliant product and so easy to use, they would be fabulous for travel too.  I also think the pencil would be perfect not only for regular makeup looks but also for body and face art looks for Halloween or festival looks too and they would be ideal for makeup artists to have in their kits for the same reason. 
In the photograph below I am wearing the Multitasker Pencil on my cheeks as blush and all over my lips with the LIPSstick worn over the top, this was the first time I wore the products.

Both products are absolutely incredible and come with a fantastic price tag, if I had tried the products without knowing the brand or price of the products I would definitely had thought they were high end makeup products that came with a high end price tag. I am so impressed with both products and cannot recommend them highly enough, they are incredible and I would love to try some more shades in both the Multitasker and the LIPSstick, they are incredible and if you haven't tried them yet, I seriously recommend you do so, you will not be disappointed.
