Sephora has these nifty little Ultra Vinyl Lip Pencils out in a variety of colors and since I have been on a lip pencil kick lately (see here and here), I decided to pick up a few with the F&F sale they recently had.
I haven’t tried that many Sephora brand products and I’m not sure why. I think I assume they are “lesser” quality because they are the store’s own brand, but clearly that doesn’t always ring true.
These babies are jumbo sized pencils that are a cross between a lipstick and a lip gloss. Oh also of course it’s kind of a lip liner as well since they are pencils and easy to control.
They have the opacity and coverage of a lipstick, but leave a nice shiny finish like a lip gloss. They are very smooth going on and feel very moisturizing.
Currently they offer eight different colors.
Gorgeous Peach is a peachy pink color with pink shimmer. You can see the color here is on the more neutral or natural side. It’s not anything over the top or really that interesting to me. In fact I was a little disappointed with this color on my skin, I felt it was a little “blah”. That’s not to say it’s not a good color but I don’t think it looks good on me.
Fuchsia Fever is a really bright yet deep fuchsia pink with pink shimmer. Now this is more my color! This one is really opaque and ultra-pink and glossy. I just love it and anyone who loves bright pinks will also.
L to R: Fuchsia Fever, Gorgeous Peach
I definitely recommend these even though Gorgeous Peach wasn’t great for me. They only downside I see to these is that with pencils you do have to sharpen them which makes the product seem to disappear quicker. Also they are $12.00 each, which isn’t super expensive but I wish they were more like $8.00.
ALERT: Sephora VIB sale is going now until Nov 15th so if you want to try them you can get 20% off with check-out code VIB20. I’m curious to check out Vinyl Raspberry which is a deep shimmery pink and Fancy Red which is a shimmery rich red.
How do you feel about these colors and would you wear a pink as bright as Fuchsia Fever?
