I’ve been on a lip pencil spree for the past 3 months already. I don’t even remember how this started because if I remember it correctly, I am not interested in lip pencils before. I find them useless. I guess watching beauty bloggers like Viviana and Lily changed my mind. They’ve been talking about MAC lip pencils for the past months and it got me interested in it again.
My first MAC lip pencil was Cherry which I got 2 years ago? I bought it together with MAC Red here in SM Aura. I thought I needed a red lip pencil to prevent my red lipsticks from bleeding. I also tried NYX lip pencils a few weeks back but didn’t like them because they were too dry. I thought, that’s it, I’m so done with these lip pencils.

You know when you have so much makeup that you already ignore most it? Makeup hoarders, raise your hands. Agree with me? I think my addiction is beyond control already. I know, sad.
Recently, I found some awesome lip products in my stash that I haven’t been using much. I was looking for cheaper alternative to MAC lip pencils when I found these ones from Ever Bilena. The shade that I have is HOT PINK. I swatched all the pencils and not all are creamy and pigmented. HOT PINK is one of the nicer shades. I fill my lips with this pencil and then top it with Maybelline Colorsensational High Shine Gloss in Berry Brilliance and you get luscious berry lips. I love the fact that this lip combo is just 300 pesos. Ever Bilena lip pencil is only 100 pesos and I got the Maybelline Colorsensational High Shine Gloss for 200 pesos from Bonmarche. I checked their site at the moment and the price is now 210 pesos though. It’s still a good price I believe. The gloss is not very sticky and stays on the lips for a good 2-3 hours. EB lip pencil is a no-brainer. It’s pigmented, cheap and it works. I really love this lip combo on days when I don’t have too much eye makeup.

I have been hearing a lot about these NARS lip pencils from bloggers and Youtubers from all over the world. I finally succumbed and bought my first one 4 weeks ago at Rustan’s Shangrila. It was actually Anna from VDM who made me do it. She posted about the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella on this post. I was like, okay, I have to get it.
