As soon as I saw this lip pencil on Laura's blog, I knew I had to have it. Even though I am not a bright lip kind of girl, I went to Selfridges, swatched it, fell in love and purchased it within about two minutes. I find pencils a lot easier to apply than lipsticks, it's very easy to pop on when you're in a rush or on the go. Now, it is very bright and not something I would ever be confident enough to wear but it is such a pretty shade of pink (my niece loves it, points at my lips shouting "pink lips!!" and then makes me put it on hers). It is extremely long lasting, without being dry. I have a lot of issues with my lips being too dry and lipsticks clinging to dry patches but this one doesn't; even though it does have a matte finish. I have worn this so much since I got it as it's so easy to just throw on quickly and doesn't require all that much effort and it's extremely flattering even for a bright, hot pink lipstick!
PS. Sorry for my slightly serial killer like face.
