Orange Lips | Maybelline Velvet Lip pencil






I have a feeling my make-up uniform for this summer will consist of bronzed glowy skin and a bold orangey-red lip. So, with plenty of time, I've set myself a challenge to find the perfect shade searching both the drug store and high-end make-up counters.

The first contender comes from the Maybelline Color Drama Velvet Lip Pencil in the shade 410 Fab Orange. This is the perfect balance of orange and red, making it a potential winner already. Costing only £4.99, it's super affordable! However, the only downside to these pencils is that you waste so much product when sharpening and these Maybelline ones aren't the biggest to begin with. 

The formula is matte without being uncomfortable or drying on the lips and they have some seriously good staying power, although their size makes them very portable for on the go touch ups if needed. No need for a separate lip liner either, if sharpened they have a really precise application. I'm not a fan of lip liners, because my lips are so odd and small I prefer having more of a blurred blended edge, rather than a crisp line. So I colour in my lips then blend it in using my fingers.

Super impressed with this first contender! I also have my sights set on Mac Morange and Nars Audacious Lipstick in Lana #feelingspendy.
