MAC Lip Pencils Review And Why You Should Get Them

Makeup is an expensive hobby to keep especially if you love trying new stuff like me. I would invest in basic things (according to me) like foundation, blush, lipstick and kohl, but if you ask me to invest in things like mascara, eyeliner, lip pencils, lip gloss, bronzer I would be a little reluctant. But give me a product that’s a multi-tasker and then we’re talking.

A few blog posts back I mentioned getting MAC Lipstick Ruby Woo as a present and how I would never buy one because of the price tag. RO 9.275 for one lipstick, seriously? Not happening. Fast forward to a few months and my hopeless attempts at applying Ruby Woo perfectly on my not so defined lips. I had no idea how to make it work and the idea of getting a lip liner wasn’t something that would happen with me because lazy AF. I don’t use a hair conditioner after shampooing my hair, what makes you believe I would use a lip liner to define my lips before I apply a lipstick. No I don’t care my lips need them. I would never go that extra mile for anything. Also, they are always almost the same price of a lip stick which seems unfair to me.

Ruby Woo lip pencil hit the market a bit back. I really wanted the lipstick to look good on me, so I went to the store, swatched it, and bought it. MAC Lip Pencil in Ruby Woo has the same deep red shade as the lipstick. The pencil has a defined tip and glides on the lip’s line perfectly to give you your desired result. Putting on lipstick after that has been an easy peasy task. It looks so well done, ha. The best thing about it is its creamy formula. Some days I use it as a lipstick if Ruby Woo lipstick is being too dry.

My MAC Lip Pencil love affair didn’t end there. Last year just around autumn/winter, I swatched a few lip liners from MAC and there were some brown shades I really liked. I was kind of sure I would get them but I have been obsessed with bold lips recently and I ended up buying MAC Lip Pencil in Beet. It’s a berry toned/magenta shade and I absolutely love it. It has the same creamy formula and because I don’t really have a lipstick to go with it yet, I apply it all over my lips and it looks fab.

Now a lip pencil range that has amazing nude and vibrant shades, is creamy and can be worked on as a lipsticks too, is available and you don’t avail the opportunity to use it, would be a very sad thing, really! Do I say it’s worth the money? It so is.

Let me know in the comments below if you try some or if you have a favorite one already. Also, I would love it if you suggest some other lip pencils to me. I heard Maybelline came out with a new range. Need to check them myself.

Thanks for reading, guys! 🙂

Life

I ❤ Autumn

Copy of Autumn

The downside of living in a desert country is that you will only get two seasons: very hot summer and mild summer. For some people this might be ideal but for me not really. I like all the four seasons and there is nothing more I like than to daydream about them when most of the world is enjoying them and I am not.

Autumn is my favorite among the four and the amount of autumnal vibes coming my way through social media this month made me want to write a huge post on all the things I love about this gorgeous season. ❤

Changing Colors

Changing Colors

This is my most favorite part of autumn. I love how the trees change colors from green to yellow and orange. I love how the roads and parks are filled with dried up leaves and the crunchy sound they make when a person walks on them. Sunsets become even more beautiful than usual with the sky displaying shades of deep blue, pink, purple and violet and a trip to the beach is always an amazing idea.

Outdoors

Outdoors

I love it when summer turns to autumn and instead of harsh heat we are welcomed by a cool breeze in the afternoon and evening. For someone who works out this is such a great time to leave the gym or indoors for a while and do their cardio outside. I love walking in huge parks that are not stripped off most of their nature. I love it when we can walk to places that are not very far to get some errands done. I just generally like the whole idea of spending more time out in the nature when the weather is being such a babe.

Hot Beverages

After summer and all the cold beverages encircling that season, I love how the choices go from cold coffee/tea and frappuccino to latte, mocha, macchiato, black and green tea. I love drinks so I am always happy when there is a change in that section. I also love how Starbucks comes out autumn inspired drinks like ‘Pumpkin Spice Latte’ and if you’re lucky enough you get autumn themed cups to go with them.

Trends

Trends

I love how the lip colors get berry colored bolder and eye lashes become intense than usual. The copper eyelids are another of my favorite thing about this season. Fashion wise I love how everything starts getting darker. Maroon and navy blue colors are such hits. I love those stunning slouchy sweaters and blanket-y yet stylish scarves people start wrapping around them. I also like how everyone starts wearing super cool boots and sneakers.

Halloween

I love it how with the start of autumn everyone gets excited for Halloween for real and planning their getups. I like it how YouTube gets filled up with videos and tutorials of new ideas every day. I love the mad obsession with pumpkins too and lovely shots people post on their Instagram.

All the Other Things

These are things that I haven’t experienced yet but love them still. I love how everyone starts talking about and buying new fall inspired candles and fairy lights and lanterns become a part of home décor. I love it when people talk about Lush Bath bombs or put up picture of the lovely effect of them in their tubs.
