MAC Vino Lip Pencil Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

For a few months I’ve been enjoying the gorgeous color of MAC Vino Lip Pencil and I’ve been pairing it with different lipstick shades and textures. It’s part of the permanent collection so you’ll find it available at your local MAC counter anytime. I discovered it last year when I did some shopping at MAC and also bought Liptensity Lipstick in Burnt Violet (review, swatches), a shade that would definitely need an investment into a new lip liner color. MAC Vino was a perfect match for Burnt Violet, but for other shades as well so it became a one of the most used lip pencils from my collection in the past few months.

MAC Vino Lip Pencil ($17.50 / 71.00 Lei for 1.45 g / 0.05 oz) is officially described as an intense violet-purple. I see it as a medium-dark cool toned burgundy with a touch of purple and a matte finish. It has a good color payoff and it comes very close to a full opacity on the lips. It provides a burst of color in just one swipe and glides easily across the lips but it feels a bit dry at the same time. Continue Reading

NYX Black Lips Lip Pencil Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

A black lip liner is not something that you’ll go shopping for everyday, is it?! But since I got into this trend of wearing black lips this season a black lip liner was a must so I bought NYX Black Lips Retractable Lip Pencil about two months ago when NYX opened its first store in my city. I got a retractable lip liner which is a mechanical one, just because this is what they had in black at NYX counter but I wouldn’t mind using a sharpener for a classic lip pencil. NYX Retractable Lip Pencil comes in 19 rich pigmented shades so you can choose any other color to match your lipstick if you like.

MAC Liptensity and Versicolour Shopping!

Hello pretties!

This season I’ve been hitting MAC counters pretty bad, leaving with a bunch of new products almost every week. Almost a month ago I showed you my newly purchased Vamplify colors and about 10 days ago I stopped to check out and swatch MAC Liptensity Collection (video on Instagram as well). I knew these were pretty intense colors so I didn’t resist the urge to get me some but I wanted something different than my regular pink shades. I also saw the newly released MAC Versicolour Stain (info, photos) shades so I picked a shade out of those ones as well.

Urban Decay Anarchy 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

Well, you are already aware of my current Urban Decay Vice Lipstick addiction but this one goes hand in hand with the matching color lip pencils. Pink is an obvious color choice here on Chicprofile so Urban Decay Anarchy 24/7 Glide On Lip Pencil review comes just as natural. This hot pink color goes well with some of my favorite Vice Lipsticks in Anarchy, Crush and Firebird, not to mention that I’ve used it on other fuchsia lipsticks from YSL, Lancome, Estee Lauder, Giorgio Armani, MAC, D&G…you name it. I wanted to try this color with every hot fuchsia tinted lipstick color I own and it paired beautifully. Just the other day I had it on my lips from morning till late in the afternoon paired with my new purchased MAC What’s Going On! Vamplify Lipgloss (review, swatches, photos).

Urban Decay Pandemonium 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

Those 100 shades of Urban Decay Vice Lipstick are amazing, but for a long-lasting lip color and clear lines you’ll have to find a matching lip pencil. The one I’ve been wearing this week is Urban Decay Pandemonium 24/7 Glide-On Pencil, a perfect match for Urban Decay Pandemonium Vice Lipstick (review, lip swatches) but also for any other bright purple lipstick. I fell in love with this color instantly, but so it happens that I’m the kind of gal who uses lip pencils a lot, on their own, without pairing them with any lipstick, just simply applying them all over the lips. Pandemonium is a gorgeous and vibrant color and those who love purple lips won’t have to miss this one.
