an ode to lip pencils

Do you remember that time when lip pencils were used only for lining and no filling at all? Yeah, me too... The 90's went by with interesting music and inelegant fashion that almost left a love/hate relationship with lip pencils in general. They seem to quickly come back though, in form of lip crayons just to remind us that even pencils can be used as lipsticks after following two simple steps: lining & filling. Using a lip balm underneath or on top, you can definitely give the impression of wearing a lipstick and let me tell you that a lip pencil is even better. Its sharp end corrects and defines your lip shape in detail, while the matte formula will stay on for hours. It also saves you time and money since you won't have to find the right pencil shade to match your favourite lipstick; it's already a 'does it all' product!
