It’s time to get some weekly features installed onto my blog. I want to really show some love for the high street, drug store bargains – who doesn’t love a bargain or dupes, right? So, to the rescue come my weekly edits of the ‘Sunday Beauty Steals’. Okay, they won’t always be beauty steals – they could be hair, nails, skincare or even the odd fashion steal of the week! Kick starting this feature are the new Maybelline Color Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencils. I wanted to just pick up 1 when I popped along to Boots, but I have no idea how 4 fell into my basket…
Firstly, can I anyone say NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil dupe? I sure can! These are down right BRILLIANT. The colour pay off, texture, consistency and longevity are all reasons why these have become firm favourites of mine. Not to mention the £4.99 price tag which comes along with them – even better when they are 3 for 2 😉 Now onto the selection of shades I picked up. As you can probably tell, there is quite an Autumnal theme going on, with a pop of colour which might as well be named after me because we all know that my lips totes love a bit of coral ♥

I wouldn’t say they are completely matte, but I like it. They have the right balance of ‘matte-ness’ and moisture to stop your lips getting try. They also last for hours. I tend to reapply these about twice a day – but as always this depends on how much I am drinking and eating. Saying that, they still last for a long time on my lips! One thing I have to say is you will definitely struggle picking the shade you want to buy – I wanted to get them ALL.
Maybelline Color Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencil retail for £4.99 and are available HERE or at your local drugstore, phamarcist or event grocery shop 😉
