Sephora Birthday Gift
April 17, 2015 § 5 Comments
This year’s Sephora gift once again did not disappoint! I am always so excited to see what they have in store for their birthday gift, and this year, it’s two Nars lip pencils! The box included the Cruella Velvet Matte Lip Pencil (don’t you just love the creative names?) and the RIkugien Satin Lip Pencil. What I love about the two lip pencils is how strong the pigments are. Just a quick brush over your lips and the color truly pops out, you can see this in the second picture (Cruella being the bold red line). I do admit that I generally shy away from bold lip colors, so I’ll probably be sticking mainly to the Rikugien Satin Lip Pencil.
I generally like to add a base coat of lip balm or nude lip butter (currently, using eos lip balm and nivea lip butter) before I use the lip pencil. This gives it a smoother application and when used with lip butter, there’s a glossier look. Below, have the Rikugien Satin Lip Pencil on!
