Sephora Ultra Vinyl Lip Pencil

Sephora's Ultra Vinyl Lip Pencils were on sale for $5 apiece so I couldn't help but to snatch a couple up. You know how I can't say no to a bargain! :) At more than half off the original price of $12, I got 2 lip pencils for less than the cost of one! Though I was really tempted to go with my usual hot pinks and fuchsias, I forced myself to get colors that I wouldn't normally consider. I settled on Gorgeous Peach and Strawberry Delish:




The Gorgeous Peach has shimmer and the Strawberry Delish has none. Both had a semi-opaque, glossy finish. I really like the jumbo pencil format, it makes shaping and filling in very easy. The formula itself is silky-smooth and the texture is moisturizing. Lasting power is pretty average, but since they're so portable, reapplying is a snap.

Gorgeous Peach and Strawberry Delish

I was a little apprehensive when I first received the Gorgeous Peach. When I uncapped the pencil, the color looked very orange-y and the finish looked very pearly. From experience, I know that such a combination looks ghastly on me. Upon application, however, the color was more of a warm, pinky-nude with just a touch of shimmer. Very wearable.

My favorite of the two is probably the Strawberry Delish, which ended up being a bright shade of light raspberry, demi-gloss, no shimmer. I liked it so much that I decided not to wipe it off and attended today's brunch with it on. I only had to touchup a bit in the center of my lip after two hours of eating and drinking. :)


Cheers!

Thanks for reading, happy Sunday, and goodnight! 

Hugs,
Cat
