I may have bought a couple of bits from Love Makeup the other day, one of them being an OCC Cosmetic Colour Pencil. These pencils come in a rainbow of colours and can be used anywhere on the body. As soon as I saw them on sale I knew I had to try them! You can see the gorgeous range of available colours below – the ones starred mean they are not recommended for use around the immediate eye area.
I decided to go for the ‘Hoochie’ pencil, a bright magenta purple. I have a thing for purple lipstick, and as far as I’m concerned, the brighter the better!
The pencil arrived in a clear plastic case, the packaging is white and fairly basic looking.
The colour of the pencil is gorgeous, it’s intensely pigmented and exactly as I hoped it would be!
The formula was slightly harder than I expected, though the pencil was not sharp. It’s actually a really good density for making clear, sharp lines.
So this is what it looks like! you can see it has a matte finish, just like using a matte lipstick. It has highlighted some of the dry parts on my lips but this is the norm for a matte finish. I absolutely love the colour!!
If you love bright lips, or want to try out purple lips without it being too deep a colour or too blueish, I’d definitely recommend giving this a go. These pencils have amazing pigmentation and stay put all day. It really doesn’t budge! I definitely want to try Anime (bright pink) and NSFW (true red) next 🙂
I hope you enjoyed my review! xxx
