Sorry it’s been awhile since I posted! I have been super busy getting ready for college graduation!

I picked up two of these lip pencils at my neighborhood Ulta. I got the shades Sand Pink and Natural. Natural is a very neutral, plum-brown color and Sand Pink is a bright, blueish pink.

I like Natural because it is close to my natural lip color so this can be used for a lot of different lipsticks and glosses. Sand Pink I like to pair with my MAC Sheen Supreme lipstick in Ultra Darling. Ultra Darling is a more yellow-based pink, but these work well together.  These lip pencils glide on smooth and creamy, and kept my lipstick from bleeding and fading all day.

If you are looking for an inexpensive lip pencil with lots of color options, these are a really good choice. These are my go to lip pencils and I love them! I will definitely purchase these again in the future.

Price: $3.50 (Ulta)

I got two NYX Soft Matte Lip Cremes in Antwerp and Stockholm.  Antwerp is a hot, peachy-pink color and Stockholm is a pinky-nude color.

Both of these lip cremes have a matte finish and are extremely light-feeling on the lips. I got about 4 hours wear before I had to touch these up. These have a sweet scent, like vanilla frosting. The only drawback to these is that if you have any sort of flaking or texture imperfections on your lips, these lippies will show it. Make sure your lips are exfoliated and smooth before applying these.

Overall, I love the color options and staying power of these lip cremes. The matte finish is also a nice deviation from most lip products out there. NYX, I think I’m in love!

Price: $5.99 (www.ulta.com)
