Generally speaking, I'm extremely intimidated by lipsticks. However, if you put it in a pencil form, I seem to be able to handle it xD
This pencil glides on so smoothly, and the pencil makes application fool-proof. This is what I keep in my purse for when I'm on the run and just need something. Love Child is a perfect soft pink thats universally flattering. It doesn't dry my lips out like crazy, and it doesn't need a lip liner because it stays put all by itself!
I also like that this product doesn't have any noticeable smell or taste. The generic cheap lipstick smell and taste sickens me! But this is odor free, it's the perfect lip pencil for me!
I love this new craze in fat lpencil lipsticks. I personally think the old school lipstick packaging should be done away with forever. When using on actors they get their own pencil and i generally don't even use a lip brush anymore. Great for touch ups on set and super easy (ok, when I am doing print or red carpet I still like the control and precision of a brush) I have tried lots of these style pencils: Tarte, Clinique Chubby Sticks, Bite, Urban Decay. I love them differently for different reasons and I think its helpful to see all in one review.
Tarte: I love the option of sheer or more pigmented matte. the colors are so fashion forward with the brighter matte choices. The sheers are perfect for every day wear and are fairly moisturizing
Clinique Chubby Sticks: Sheer and moisturizing. Love the color selection. Two Ton Tomato is such a fun orangey bright red and you don't have to have a surgeon's steady hand to apply like you do most reds. I apply it on the go mirror free! and Bountiful Blush is just hands down the best natural color out there. It works on everyone!
Sephora Bite: Not a huge color selection as of this review (4 or 5 colors at most at this point) but what they have is great! highly pigmented and smooth application. Great find!
Urban Decay Super Saturated High Gloss: I love this pencil. But it is not for the shy one. The colors are super vibrant (wow!!!) and yes, some of them quite loud. Which is so fun!!! Very pigmented! and smooth silky app. love love!
Hope this helps! If you are still going old school with your lipsticks, ditch 'em grandma!. come on over to fat lip pencil lipsticks - you'll never go back! (unless of course you are a makeup artist for runway, print, or redcarpet events where the control of a brush is still a tool we should be using... but who needs all that hassle if you're not??)
This is the first time i have bought urban decay. The price tags compared to the size of the products always put me off. But after reading reviews and seeing this lipstick in pictures, i just couldn't resist. It was not cheap at £14, i wouldn't mind if it lasted a long time, but i've only had it two days and need to sharpen it already. The colour is very pretty, but not a pale pink as it is described. It's more of a mid pink. I love the way it feels on my lips, smooth and doesn't dry them out. overall, it's a very nice lipstick but for the price i will not be purchasing it again, unless they actually do bring out a PALE pink.
When I saw that UD released a new lip color in the SSHG lip color (which really looks like a lip pencil), I wanted to try it out because I love Fbomb, Punch Drunk, Adrenaline, etc. Now, I haven't tried the UD lipstick version of this, but I imagine they should be the same. The color they describe as a pale pink. I would also add that this pink on my lips (I'm NC35) makes me look like Nicki Minaj. So, if you're looking for that type of pink, this one is very blue based and is prone to making your teeth look yellower if they're not super white. That being said, I say to UD to keep cranking out colors in the lip pencil formula because I love 'em.
