Hold The Phone, I Found THE BEST Lip Pencil!

It’s not often that you can say you found the best of ANYTHING at under $4.

Yes, you read that correctly. Actually, it’s $3.99 if we’re being exact.

Let me give you a bit of background to set the stage for this holy-grail find…

At “30-something”, I recently noticed that my lips quite simply, don’t have the precise definition they used to. Unfortunately, part of the natural aging process is the loss of volume/fullness in the face. (I’m giving you the middle finger Mother Nature!!!) While I’ve never been a huge “lip color” girl, occasionally, I would swipe a natural or nude color on my lips and call it a day. Remember, my CHANEL BOY-friend? Well, this technique was simply not doing the trick anymore. The lip color was fading and bleeding and my face would look washed out. It ain’t pretty, folks.

Finally, I decided to take some action. By action, I mean hauling my a** to the nearest ULTA with 20% OFF coupon in hand to see what could be done. I figured adding a bit of deeper color and definition would be exactly what my lips needed. So when I saw the wall of lip products from NYX, I was drawn in like a moth to a flame.

NYX PROFESSIONAL MAKEUP is a bit of a Cinderella story with a cult following obsessed with its range of colors and wallet-friendly price tags. Just take a peek at the almost 3000 REVIEWS on the ULTA website singing the praises of this SLIM LIP PENCIL alone! I picked up the product in “Mahogany” as I was looking for something a little bit darker than my natural lip color. The best way to describe the color is a natural, rosy plum. Long story, short: I’m OBSESSED.

The lip pencil glides on smoothly with a creamy texture. The sharp point is great for creating definition, while the side of the pencil can be used for filling in the pout. I layer this pencil under lipstick, lip balm (BONNE BELL DR. PEPPER for life!) or sheer gloss. The pencil keeps the color long-lasting and my lips perfectly shaped. You can even wear it on it’s own for a natural matte finish. Really, it’s that good!

$3.99, folks.
