Maybelline Color Blur Matte Lip Pencils

Maybelline’s Color Blur Lip Pencils are finally available in the US and according to Maybelline Canada PR, they will be released in Canada in early August 2015.

This is a new permanent release and consists of 10 vibrant shades and are dual sided twist up lip pencils that contain a creamy matte lipstick pencil on one end and a smudger on the other.

The cushion smudger is rubbery and is to be used to blur out the lip colour and create an ombre effect which has been popular in Korea.

You can apply the lipstick to the centre of your lips and smudge out towards the edges for the ombre effect, or wear normally as an all over colour.

I purchased the colours: #45 I’m Blushing, #50 I like to Mauve It and #05 Pink Insanity.

You don’t have to worry about sharpening the lip pencils as they are retractable.

The pigmentation of these lip pencils are AMAZING!  Below are swatches with just one swipe.

Here they are with the 2 outer colours smudged using the smudger.

Like I said, amazing pigmentation!  They glide on so easily without any tugging and leave a soft, velvet feel on my lips.  The formula is creamy and completely matte and do not feel drying on my lips.  Because it’s a pencil you get very precise application.  Wear time was up to 4 hours, with Pink Insanity leaving a slight stain on my lips.

I haven’t tried the ombre effect with these lip pencils as of yet.  If you have, let me know how it goes.  I’m not sure I could pull that look off 🙂

Very well done Maybelline!!
