I recently picked up the Maybelline Color Drama lip pencil in the shade In With Coral, I'm sure those of you who read my blog regularly with know that I love coral lip and nail shades and wear them a lot especially over the spring and summer months, and when I saw my friend Khila wearing a really lovely coral lip colour I naturally asked what it was and when I found out it was the Maybelline color drama lip pencil I snapped it up the next time I placed a Boots order. I have worn the pencil quite a few times since featuring it in my huge beauty haul post around a month ago and today I thought I'd let you know my thoughts on it.
I really like the lip pencil style of lipstick, I own a few from different brands and I also already have one of the Color Drama lip pencils in the shade Light It Up which is red and I really like it and have worn it quite a lot so I hoped I would feel the same about In With Coral, the packaging has changed since I bought Light It Up so I hoped the formula hadn't too.
In With Coral is a bright coral matte shade, and although it's matte it doesn't feel dragging on the lips when I apply it and actually feels quite creamy for a matte lip colour and it is very easy to apply, I usually line my lips first and then fill them in. The lipstick feels comfortable on the lips and doesn't dry my lips out at all, it is worth mentioning that I don't suffer from dry lips, I really like the way the lipstick applies, it feels nice on the lips and has brilliant lasting power, I can wear the lipstick for around 4 hours without having to re apply when eating and drinking and if I'm not eating it lasts a lot longer. The lipstick fades away well and doesn't leave me with an unsightly ring of colour around my lips where it has worn away.
Me wearing In With Coral
I am really pleased with the lipstick, it is a lovely shade and I have worn it a lot since buying it. I love coral lip shades so I knew this would be the perfect shade for me and it really is, it is bright but not too bright and looks lovely with a neutral eye look as worn in the photograph above. I like the way the lipstick applies, it feels comfortable to wear and has great lasting power too, there are 10 shades to choose from and there is something for everyone within the shade range, I have my eye on a couple of the pink shades.
