Review // Maybelline Color Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencil in In With Coral

Forever a lover of matte lipsticks, I recently bought these three Lip Pencils from Maybelline. I couldn't decide which one to buy so I thought I'd just buy 'em all! There are 10 different shades in the range and quite frankily, I could have quite happily bought them all. There is definitely a shade made for everyone!

The Maybelline Color Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencils are fun-sized crayon pencils with chunky nibs which pack plenty of colour. They are semi-matte with the colour very much packed with pigment.

What Maybelline say about their Velvet Lip Pencils:
"Our slim lip kohl makes lips pop with on trend shades and a creamy texture."

The first Maybelline Color Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencil I will be reviewing is in the shade In With Coral. As the name states, it is a really creamy pink toned coral which will look very pretty in the summer months with a bit of a tan. 
I found that your lips have to be in really good condition to make these lip pencils receive their full potential. They do seem to show up dry areas on the lips slightly so using a lip balm and exfoliating beforehand is crucial. It was fairly easy to apply, it glided on with ease and didn't drag or pull at all. I did, however, find it slightly drying on the lips. This will probably be down to not applying lip balm beforehand so it can be a tiny bit uncomfortable otherwise.

Overall, I really love these little Maybelline Color Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencils. They are great dupes to the Nars Velvet Matte Pencils for a fraction of the price. I found that In With Coral didn't last too long on the lips but I did eat and drink a lot that day. It was easy to apply, the pigmentation is amazing and the selection of shades available is incredible. You do need to prep the lips beforehand as they do show up dry skin and because of this, it can be a little uncomfortable but as a whole, for £4.99 they are great value for money!
