Now I love a good lippy and I’ll be honest my signature style is red and matte; it looks good and lasts, job done.
So when I received these two from Next I was excited to try as they are different to what I would usually slap on. I love lip crayons/pencils as they are easy to apply and I find good for on the go. The packaging on these is great and I particularly like that you simply twist the end to get more product; I hate having to sharpen a pencil as I find it never works well!
The two shades I have are ‘Soft Rose’ and ‘Cherry Red’, both are a balm/cream texture so very different to my usual mattes. I do prefer mattes as I find they last longer, but I must say for a balm these last really well and even when they have faded I’m still left with a really nice finish.
They apply easily as they practically glide onto the lips, and I can build up the colour well for a more defined look; the pigmentation is really good.
The Soft Rose is a lovely pink nude, perfect for day time, whereas Cherry Red is a gorgeous deep red but a red with a hint of pink. It isn’t a pure red, it definitely is a little softer and I really like the shade.
