Color Blur: Our newest vivid matte lip pencil will be your favorite new accessory for a night on the town.
Why You’ll Love It:
Undefine the rules of color with Color Blur cream matte pencil and blurring smudger. The cream matte pencil feels extremely smooth and comfortable on lips while the blurring smudger means you can create your own looks from full-on bold to softly blurred. Color Blur comes in 10 shades ranging from vivids to neutrals.
For Best Results:
To achieve the softly blurred look, apply color in the center of your top and bottom lips. Using the smudger, gently blur the color out towards the edges of your top lip and then bottom lip.
My Experience with Maybelline Lip Studio Pink Insanity Color Blur Cream Matte Pencil and Smudger:
Packaging: The lip pencil comes in a slender pencil format. The packaging is bright, colorful and quite attractive. The color of the outer packaging matches the color of the lipstick inside.
One side of the pencil has a color side which houses the actual lip product. This side is retractable and you don’t need to bother about a sharpener. The narrow lip product makes the application easy and precise especially in areas like the cupid’s bow and inner corners of the mouth.
The other side of the pencil is a soft silicone smudger. The idea is to use the smudger to blur/ smudge the product to create a softer, lesser pigmented look or an ombre or gradient look. The packaging also has 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: Pink Insanity is a lovely mauve-pink shade. Those of you who like slight purple undertones to their lipsticks will like this shade. The lip pencil is strongly pigmented and covers the lips 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. The product feels soft and luxurious on the lips.
I found that this particular shade slightly settles into lip lines. I would recommend exfoliating and moisturizing the lips prior to application.Otherwise, the lipstick wears comfortably and does not feel very drying. It does not provide any extra hydration to the lips and hence dry lipped beauties are advised to wear a lip balm underneath.
