Lip products are by far my favorite makeup item to test. There are so many color varieties and different finishes.
I was really excited when I found out Birchbox was releasing their very own makeup line. I have often wondered if they ever would and now they have!
Their first release was curated with the help of Tati Westbrook who is also known as “glam life guru” on YouTube.
I’ll admit….I’m not a die hard fan of hers. Don’t get me wrong. I have nothing against her at all. But she is just not a “guru” that I really follow.
This is both paraben and cruelty free and is meant to stay soft and comfortable throughout the day.
Believe it or not, this is a full size product. At first, I thought it was a sample because of it’s small size.
Even though the lip pencil applied beautifully, it became pretty dry and uncomfortable after 2 hours of wear. The fine lines of my lips were heavily accentuated even though I exfoliated and moisturized them well.
One more downfall? The product feathered outside of my lip line. One of my favorite features with lip pencils is that they typically serve as both a lip liner and lipstick in one. I definitely needed to use a lip liner alongside this pencil though.
So while I really love the color, the formula isn’t my favorite. It can be tough finding a matte lipstick that isn’t overly drying and can hold up really well.
What do you guys think of this product?
Have a beautiful and wonderful day!
