THE CHAMELEON LIP PENCIL

 I’d like to say that I’ve become a bit more daring lately. Since I chopped my hair (kind of on a limb), I’ve been craving new ways to spice up my life as well. So, I accumulated a few lipsticks here and there, but was too afraid to wear them out. Why? Well, for the 15 year old high school student in me, they’re a disaster waiting to happen. I mean, what will people say? And, quite honestly, I didn’t really know how– what if it gets on my teeth? How often do I reapply? So many darn questions but no answers for this lipstick rookie.

Upon some research, I concurred that I needed a lip pencil to avoid bleeding. But, by then I had bought out practically the entire selection of Kate Moss for Rimmel lipsticks. I can’t buy a lip pencil for each shade! That’s insanity! But then my lovely sister, Amanda, told me about these fabulous transparent lip pencils that can be paired with absolutely any lipstick. So much freedom!
So, anyways, (get it together, Anna) I picked up Lise Watier’s Virtual Lip Contour so I could finally don some of my bright shades. After applying some lip balm, I pencil this in starting with the perimeter of my lips, then colouring in the inside. I smack my lips around a bit to evenly spread the product, then apply my lipstick, blot, then more lipstick. My drugstore lipsticks last a good hour and a bit, and my high end ones about 3 hours (this includes snacking my friends). Oh, and no bleeding in sight. So, I think I can rightfully say, mission complete.
