It’s finally Friday again so I have my Friday Favorites for you again (previously just called “My Favorites”) and this time it’s my favorite current lip pencils. Was that enough “f’s” for you?
I’ve pretty much been partial to lip pencils since age 16 when I discovered my first bright red. I cannot remember the brand, but I know it was some super cheap pencil that I found at a drugstore. I wore that red constantly, despite the fact that it was super drying. I also vividly remember that I didn’t have a fat pencil sharpener at the time, so I would either use a knife or my fingernails to peel back the wood to expose more of the product. Oh yeah, I needed that red on my lips badly, haha!
Luckily now most brands have lip pencils out and they are much better than back in the 80’s. Oh, I also finally have a great sharpener for them (the Urban Decay one is my favorite.) 😉
You know how guys are all like “You already have a pink lipstick, why do you need another one?” This is why. Because there are a gajillion shades of pink and we need them ALL! Each of these is pretty different and I love them all for various reasons. Bite Beauty Velvet and Kumquat are probably the most tame pink shades in these ones. Topshop Clueless and Bite Beauty Satsuma are great bright pinks. And Bite Beauty Violet is a nice medium purple.
And here are two more pink for good measure. Urban Decay Lovechild is a very wearable shade. Urban Decay F-Bomb and NARS Luxembourg are great intense red colors. NARS Lodhi is a very unique coral, which I really love. NARS Yu is yet another great cool-toned bright pink.
What are your favorite lip pencils? Are any of these on your list?
