mac patentpolish lip pencil

the chubby lip pencil is nothing new, and just when i had been starting to feel like i had tried them all and that they were all the same, mac up and changes the game. their new patentpolish lip pencils are refreshingly new and exciting for three reasons:

one – the tip is actually chubby (not just the pencil!) and perfectly shaped to cover lips in a few swipes. it’s a snap to fill things in with such a¬†broad and rounded color stick – i love the way these apply.

two – the color pay off is rich and opaque, which means that the sheer, semi-lackluster coverage that you’re used to in a pencil like this is a thing of the past.

three – the finish is shiny like a gloss, but as smooth and comfortable to wear as a moisturizing lip balm. i can put it on bare lips with absolutely no fear of dry out.

sometimes my affection for a product is as simple as one-two-three, and mac’s patentpolish is a perfect example. someone has finally nailed the pencil product in a way that makes it wearable as an everyday lip. if you scoop these up, you’ll be applying them over and over – and if you see me out and about, the shade i can’t get enough of is called fearless.

    Have you tried the Nars Lip Pencils? I was wondering how they compared to these?

    • lara ramos says:

      these are glossier and much more moisturizing – the nars have a bit more of a matte/satin finish (although, i do love them!)
