Color Blur: Our newest vivid matte lip pencil will be your favorite new accessory for a night on the town.
My experience with Maybelline Berry Misbehaved Lip Studio Color Blur Lip Pencil:
Packaging: The lip pencil comes in a slender stick format which is thinner than the average lipstick but not as thin as a lip liner. The packaging is bright and colorful and quite attractive. The color of the packaging matches the shade of the lip pencil.It has a color side which houses the actual lip product. This side is retractable and you don’t need to bother about a sharpener. I like this as there is no wastage of product due to sharpening. The narrow lip product makes the application easy and precise especially in areas like the Cupid’s bow and inner corners of the mouth.
There is a soft silicone applicator at the other end of the pencil. The idea is to use the applicator to blur / smudge the product to create a softer, lesser pigmented look or an ombre or gradient look. The packaging also a small diagram depicting how to use the smudger to create a gradient look.
Both the sides have caps which shut tight. The packaging is quite sturdy and travel-friendly.
Shade / Pigmentation: Berry Misbehaved is a gorgeous bright magenta shade. This is a shade which will very much suit warm skintones and will look good when paired with Indian traditional dresses. It might not be an everyday wear lipcolor though.
The lip pencil is strongly pigmented and imparts a bright pop of color in a single swipe. But if you do not prefer a full on intense bold look, you can use the smudger to create a softer look.
Texture / Finish: The formula is creamy and the lip pencil glides easily on the lips. Since this is a matte pencil, it has a velvety powder like finish with no shine. It slightly accentuates the lip lines but nothing too drastic. The product feels soft and luxurious on the lips. Despite being a matte finish, it wears comfortably and does not feel very drying. But this lip product is not moisturizing; so I would suggest that dry lipped beauties use a lip balm underneath.
The lasting power on the lip pencil is pretty good and it easily stays put for around 5-6 hrs with light meals. It does transfer to cups and glasses. Since this is a bright shade, it leaves a stain behind. You need a makeup remover to remove all traces of this lipstick.
