Disclaimer, a lot of these lip pencils are a similar colour hue. Also, most of them are from two specific brands. Now that is out of the way, let’s get into some of my most reached for 🙂
Brown nude and mauve lips are my jam! I have four lip pencils here that help with that addiction. I will wear them on their own, with lip balm over top, or of course with lippie as well. I have a bit of a complex about my top lip. It’s not in proportion to my bottom one, so lining my lip and slightly over drawing my top one is a normal occurrence.
Whirl from Mac is about as nude as I get, from a lip perspective 🙂
Their liners are pricey, but they last really well and are generally super smooth to apply. Whirl is €17.50. You can buy it from the Brown Thomas website here.
I reach for Rimmel’s Exaggerate Lip Liner in Addiction when I want something super brown.
These lip pencils are mechanical and much softer in texture. You run out of product pretty fast if you are partial to a particular shade. But, they will only set you back €5.49 from Boots here.
If I am looking to go mauve, I reach for Mac’s Soar.
This is a newer addition to my makeup collection and I don’t think I will ever be without it. I think a mauve lip is the most flattering on me, (if I do say so myself). If in doubt, I mauve it out :).
When I am in more of a pink mood. Rimmel’s Eastend Snob is my favourite. I actually did a blog post on it here a while back. I compared it to Charlotte Tilbury’s Pillow Talk. Spoiler alert, it came out on top!
Ok, we have to touch on reds, because I do enjoy a dabbling in a red lip. I have two here that I alternate. Mac’s Cherry would be in the mix too, only I sadly left mine in a pub somewhere in Dublin. RIP.
I have another Rimmel Exaggerate Pencil here. This is Red Diva. It’s the perfect cherry red shade.
Another one I reach for is the PS Love Lip Liner Pencil in 05 from Penneys.
I love these, I dedicated a whole blog post to them here. Such great value.
If I am feeling a berry lip, which I do alot, especially when the weather is a little cooler. Mac Currant is one I pick up if I am feeling particularly brave. Generally though, the Essence Longlasting Lip Liner in Yummy Berry is what my hand gravitates towards. These are another great budget buy and come in a multitude of shades.
Yummy Berry is a bit more pink. I generally fill the whole lip in with it and then dab over it with something like Mac’s Plumful or Rebel for full on berry mode.
I could probably go on, but I will leave it there for now 🙂 Spot any of your favourite lip pencils?
