The 90's Lip With Maybelline color Drama Lip Pencils

16 January 2015

90's lip, maybelline color drama lip pencils

With the 90's era being a major trend on both the fashion and beauty scene right now, helped of course by Kylie Jenner rocking those now infamous Mac nude lip colours, not only making them a repeated sell out but keeping nude lips still very much the colour to be seen in. If like myself you have yet to get your hands on the Mac versions you may have been looking for a drugstore alternative, and don't worry girls i've got you covered. 
I had heard a few good reviews on the Maybelline Color Drama lip pencils, with people comparing them to the Nars Velvet Lip pencils, and when i spotted these gorgeous nude shades i just had to try them. I picked up 140 Minimalist a dusky pink shade with a very fine gold shimmer, and 630 Nude Perfection a medium brown nude shade which is completely matte. 
I like the chunky crayon design it makes them a lot more precise to apply and they can be used to line or slightly overdraw the lips and also as an all over lip colour, that is of course if you keep them sharpened. Formulation wise i find the two vary slightly, i do have to work a bit harder to apply Minimalist as it is slightly dryer for some reason, Nude Perfection seems to just be a bit softer and easier to apply. Once on the lips again Minimalist is slightly drying but i don't find Nude Perfection drying at all if anything quite moisturizing, I'm not quite sure why they are different in this way. I was really impressed with how well these last, even with hours of wear eating, drinking etc although the top layer might rub off the colour still seems to stay on the lips. 
I love the colour of these pencils Minimalist is a really pretty pink shade thats super flattering and really brightens up the face, like i said previously it does have a slight shimmer to it but its undetectable once on the lips. Nude perfection is a great dupe for Velvet Teddy and is exactly the sort of nude brown shade i was looking for, its not too dark or too light  brown just perfectly in between, its not really a colour i would have seen myself wearing a while back but i love it and i've had a few compliments whilst wearing it. 
I really like the Maybelline Color Drama lip pencils and i recommend them to anyone after a great drugstore nude, they also do some great darker shades i've got my eyes on the purple one.
