Skintone : Medium / Fair / MAC NC 35
Hi Everyone, 🙂
I am sharing review of MAC Velvetease lip pencils with you (Aim To Please, Temper Tantrum, Just My Type, and Just Add Romance) with you all. These are twist-up/retractable lip crayons. If you are someone who does not like to sharpen their pencils, this could totally be your product, but I personally like pencils that can be sharpened. Even though it leads to a product wastage, I like to work with a fresh tip. With pencils like these, the only problem is that once the tip gets blunt, you are stuck with it. Some retractable pencils come with a little sharpener attached on the end, these don’t. It is a highly personal preference. They are extremely handy to carry around any time of the day. The coloured ends make them easy to locate among a bazillion things in your bag and since they don’t require sharpening, you can do your touchups anywhere without fuss. If you are a fan of lip crayons, you would love them. These have the back packaging with the ends coloured as the co-ordinating shades. That makes it easier to store and locate them easily.

Aim To Please:
It is a soft mauve brown.. a bit like a reddish-toned dusty rose color. It is such a gorgeous n*de color for warm medium skin tones. It reminds me of MAC Taupe Lipstick a lot . Love this shade!
Just Add Romance:
If there is one real pretty red, I have in my collection, it is this one. It is a gorgeous cherry red color that is not too bold, makes for a great day and evening both and adds that lovely freshness to the face. It is definitley one of my favoutrite among the four. Love this one soo soo much.

A warm yellow-based orange. It is not the brightest shade of orange and can look a bit sallow if you have very strong yellow undertones. A closest color from MAC lipstick is MAC Morange.
• It is a thin and light formula. Does not feel heavy on lips at all.
• These are semi-matte lipsticks.
• They can be used as lip pencils as well underneath a traditional lipstick.
• Very easy to use. I call them on-the-go lipsticks.
• If you have different colors, you can mix and match. The formula blends beautifully with each other.

• These do not have any smell to or taste to it.
• Stays on for 3-4 hours. The brighter colors leave a stain behind and stay on for longer. But these are not the most long lasting lipsticks.
• Do not feel either hydrating or drying. They are very comfortable to wear.
• They don’t smudge or smear. Do not accentuate fine lines of lips.
• The coloured ends make them easier to locate and the packaging is very handy.
• I am not a fan of retractable pencils personally but it could be a pro for some. However, the tip does not go very blunt very soon.
• They are very pigmented. I’d say one swipe gives 80% color payoff. These are very buildable without looking thick or cakey.

There is nothing extraordinary about these lipsticks. They are alright – very basic, nice kind. Nothing wrong with them but nothing too exciting as well. You can have them or can skip them. I don’t think you would be missing out on anything. If there is some color that you really like from the range, I would say go for it because you would not regret having it in your kit.
