Skin Tone: Medium to Dusky
Zoeva recently released a lot of new lip products. They came up with a new line of matte liquid lipsticks and also a set of lip pencils. I really liked their lipsticks, so went ahead and picked up a lip pencil as well. Today, I am going to talk about the Zoeva Graphic Lips – Blooming Impression. Read on to find out whether it is a HIT or a MISS.
Price: USD 7.80
Our ZOEVA Graphic Lips “Blooming Impression” offers everything your beauty heart desires. Sharply define and shape your lips with an ultra-precise and highly pigmented texture and posh up your look in an extra matte warm rosy brown. Ensuring high coverage, the wooden lip liner allows for clean, well-defined application and effortless, long-wearing lip definition with high opacity.
The formulation of the lip liner is enriched with vitamin C & E and is 100% free of animal-derived ingredients, fragrances, mineral oils, parabens, and phthalates. Made in Czech Republic.
My Experience with Zoeva Graphic Lips Blooming Impression:
This lip pencil comes packaged in a black cardboard box which contains all the product details and the shade name. The lip pencil itself is a regular sharpen-able wooden pencil, which has a color-coded strip at the bottom that makes the identification of the actual shade easier. The packaging is pretty sturdy and neat and looks more like a MAC lip pencil.
Zoeva came up with eight shades in this collection to match the new set of liquid lipsticks that they launched recently. Most of the shades in this collection are nudes, neutrals and unique shades. The shade ‘Blooming Impression’ is a beautiful brown shade with a hint of orange – almost like a terracotta shade. This color is more on the neutral side and looks beautiful on its own. This is the kind of a shade that would probably look pretty across skin tones.
The formula of the lip pencil is like an old-school lip pencil. It is not extremely creamy and it feels a bit drying on the lips. The pigmentation of the lip pencil is amazing – one stroke gives opaque shade payoff. The pencil is semi-creamy and maybe a bit difficult to apply if not sharpened properly, but a pencil with a well-shaped tip is easy to work with and makes the lining and filling of the lips easy and precise. If the lips are not exfoliated these may cling on to dry patches. Since the lip pencil is not super creamy it does not break even if pressure is applied. I feel the formula is similar to the MAC lip pencils.
The product lasts an entire day almost for eight hours without fading. If the lip pencil is worn alone it may tend to cling to dry patches at the end of the day, but if it’s worn under a lipstick that may not be the case.
This is a decent lip liner which pretty much does its job wonderfully well. I feel these are a great dupe for the MAC lip pencils. I really hope that they launch more shades in this line.
