New Maybelline Color Blur Lip Pencils | Review and Swatches

Wednesday, July 15, 2015

Yes I know, more lippies and again from Maybelline? But you know me, if it's new and shiny, I gotta have it. Enter the Maybelline Color Blur Lip Pencils.

Having just gotten new shades of the Creamy Matte Lipsticks, it was very hard to justify more matte lip colors from a same brand. But, oh look it's skinny, and twist up and it has a smudger! Yes, I fell right into the trap (well in my defense, I willingly jumped in).

These come in 10 shades, they are still a bit hard to find (I believe they are just now starting to slowly get released). 

But again, it's a creamy matte lip color. The smudger is designed to "blur" the lipstick if you wanted to soften things up or create sorta that ombré lip I suppose?

The formula is just as exciting to me as the Creamy Matte Lipsticks : buttery creamy, thin (as in how it feels on the lips), non drying, saturated/high impact color. Fairly similar but thiner, almost feels like lip balm when you swatch/apply it, but had a very nice matte finish.

And what I particularly like about these, is well the pencil format. Especially when the colors are on the "bolder" side, having that precision makes everything easier and faster. Again, it's not essential to me, and I've managed fine with regular lipsticks, but given the option, I do prefer this.

As far as the smudger goes, as you can guess from my previous statements, I'm not quite sure I get it? I did smudge out my lipstick on first try, and it gives you that more sheer and even color which is great but it also affects the lasting power. I find if I don't smudge, and just blot, the lip color will last much longer, in fact surprisingly long. What I did  like about the smudger is I can use it to kinda of clean up the edges and make sure I have a really clean line and even color. So it's not completely useless to me I suppose...

(N.B : If I have to write smudger one more time, I'm going to die. Sorry about the repetition guys)

With all that being said, let's look at some colors, shall we?

The take away : beautiful highly pigmented lip color, creamy, smooth, matte, non drying, precise application, long lasting. All in all I'm a big fan!
