BA Star Lip Pencil Review

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.

Swatch on my hand. Picture was taken with flash.

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.

I’m really excited about these lip pencils and I’m happy to share a code for you for 50% off a purchase! Just use the code “BBLIPS” on www.bastar.com (can only be used on full-price items and not in conjunction with other coupons).

What do you think about this red lip o’mine? Do you rock red lips for a glamorous look? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!

  1. I really like a nice red lipstick but I find that I always end up wearing a nice chocolate/pink lipstick or other neutrals. I think this looks great on you and the lasting power is impressive.

  2. Wow, that is beautiful on you! You can really rock a red lip. Have you ever done a full-on pinup makeup and hair – bc I bet you could pull it off perfectly!!

    I have a hard time with reds – they don’t love me, but I keep trying. I’ll have to get that pencil.

  3. This is a really pretty color on you! I was tempted to get this from BrandBacker but I had such a bad experience with the brand when they had their original eye shadow palette many months ago and the brand never got back to me. Now I’m bummed that I missed this because it’s so pretty!
