Maybelline really did hit the nail on the head with their Color Drama Lip Pencils (here) and I even went as far as calling them the best beauty launch of 2014. I am absolutely smitten by these super affordable babies, so adding a new shade to my collection was in order. I was after a nice vivid and bold companion for the summer months and In With Coral (here) was the answer to my prayers. It has everything on my checklist sorted and if you fancy getting your paws on a bright lippy that hangs around for ages you’ve come to the right place. In With Coral is hands down the most stunning coral pink in my collection and I love the way it warms and brightens up my complexion. The shade definitely is the brightest bulb in the box and I love its neon vibe. It still manages to be rather wearable though and it’s perfect for taking away on summer holiday.
In With Coral has beautiful sort of satin finish and the touch of moisture is everything my naturally dry lips need. The lippy feels really comfortable on and the creamy, velvet-y texture is just dreamy. My favorite part of the item in question though is the easy-to-apply formula that just glides on, giving full-blown, even color in just one swipe. Brilliant. In With Coral is one of the most rich an opaque lippies I’ve swiped on and the fact that doesn’t settle into fine lines is what makes me love it even more. The five+ hour longevity is bloomin’ impressive, considering the pencil practically melts into the lips. This gem definitely measures up to the big, high end boys (NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils I’m looking at you!) and I can’t really find a fault. It’s a good’un and if you fancy dipping your toe into the rather bright lipstick pool In With Coral is a good staring point for Summer 2015.
Have you tried this beauty before? Which is your favorite shade of the Maybelline Color Drama Lip Pencils?
Lots of love,
