Okay ladies, I have for you a truly amazing red lip pencil to show you today. I know, red? It’s so hard to find the right tone of red! Believe me, I’ve searched high and low for one. I prefer a cool-toned red to warm-toned reds, but usually when I find one, it doesn’t last but a minute! Well, I do believe that what I’m going to show you today will impress you as much as it did me!
This is the BA Star Holiday Red Lip Pencil. BA Star is a makeup company that caters to dancers and cheerleaders because of the products’ brightness, and long-lasting products but they should definitely be known outside of that community.
I paired this bold & bright lip with toned down makeup, to really make an impact.
I’m really impressed with the stay power of this. I did have a bit of feathering by the end of the day, but otherwise it was good. (The redness you see on my skin in the above 2 pictures is not from the pencil but from ruddy undertone of my skin.) The pencil also didn’t dry out my lips, so by the end of the day I didn’t feel like my lips were chapped at all. There was also a sweet smell to the pencil, but it was almost not noticeable. (I am pretty sensitive to smells which is probably why I could smell it.) There was just an almost velvety feel/texture to the lips after application.
