Neve Cosmetics Pastello Lip Pencils and Neve Giveaway



"With the intensity of a lipstick and the precision of a lip pencil these lip pencils from Neve Cosmetics contain precious oils and waxes to provide full colour, high definition and protection for your lips. Use to line and then fill in your entire lips. Vegan friendly formulation. Available colours: Mauve, Pink, Rose, Scarlet, Crimson, Fuchsia, Burgundy, Peach"

I am a big fan of Neve blushers, so I couldn't wait to try their new Pastello lip pencils. I received 3 colours to try out: peach, crimson and rose and they are lovely! The formula is enriched with precious oils to protect lips and the pigmentation of the pencils is amazing! I use them to line my lips before applying lipstick, or fill in my lips entirely and add a clear lip balm on top. The effect is lovely and long lasting. My favourite shade must be Rose, it is a dark nude and it looks beautiful on the lips. Shade Peach is a light coral shade and Crimson is a bright red. The pencils apply beautifully, without tugging. The formula is creamy and moisturizing. I swatched them on totally dry lips and they actually looked nice on their own, without a lip balm or prepping. I would recommend applying a lip balm or a lip gloss   though, if you want a glossy finish. I have been embracing matte lips lately :)

Overall, the new Pastello pencils are great value for money- super pigmented and long lasting.


"The contouring lip pencil from Neve Cosmetics helps to give your lips shape and definition.
Draw the perfect shape for your lips, with this universally flattering shade of ivory rose, in order to highlight the cupids bow, to prevent smudging lipstick and gloss, or to help your natural lips appear fuller. Semi opaque with a satin finish. Vegan friendly formula." 

This little pencil is my new saviour when it comes to lipstick emergencies! If I smudge my lipstick and I am left with a stain outside the lip line I can hide it with the Perfettina pencil. It usually happens when I wear red lippies. The texture is creamy and easy to apply. It is a light beige shade, perfect for shaping your lips and highlighting the cupids bow.  Great addition to any makeup bag. You can see it on the picture of my lips with shade Crimson on.


"Dual cosmetic pencil sharpener. Ideal for sharpening all of your lip and eye liner pencils, suitable for regular size cosmetic pencils and larger cosmetic pencils. Pencil holes have separate covers to keep sharpenings contained within the unit, along with an integrated pick to clear any pencil residue from the blades. Once full, simply lift the lid and discard the sharpenings."

Perfect for regular and big pencils, easy to clean with the pick (hidden inside).
