Let your lips do the talking with MAC's NEW PatentPolish Lip Pencil!Monday, May 05, 2014
I got something in the mail last week, and I was delighted to have received something new from MAC Cosmetics, it's their new PatentPolish Lip Pencil! These lippies will be available in MAC Stores this May 2014.
MAC PatentPolish Lip Polish is a gloss that is composed of a unique blend of creamy emollients -a product that replenishes and softens the skin as you use it. A gloss that is not heavy or sticky on the lips. Perfect for this high humid weather we've been having.
Here's a product for women who love topping their lipsticks off with high shine gloss but can't stand the sticky, heavy feeling this summer!
|MAC PatentPolish Lip Pencil in Innocent, PhP 1,120|
This lip pencil reminds me of Clinique's Chubby Sticks, but with a more professional looking packaging.
The product itself is rounded so you can easily glide it on your lips like a lip balm. No need to worry about how to maintain a pointed tip, I actually found this rounded tip easier to use than pointed ones, and you don't have to worry about accidentally breaking off the tip.
You twist the bottom to get the tube to extend the product when you are running short. Don't make the lipstick go out too long though, it might break when you glide it on your lips. Keep it short, dispense just enough product.
Swatching this shade on my hand, you can hardly see any pigment. It actually looks like skin and it has high gloss. It has a whisper of delicate beige color which is actually lovely and very dainty. I think this shade will suit tweens, an entry-level lipstick that they can use.
This is a photo of me using the product ALONE, with no lipstick underneath. I found it to look a little pale, but it did provide coverage on my lips in terms of color. The shade is really a pale nude-beige, that has medium to high shine!
Now here's a photo of me wearing PatentPolish on top of lipstick. It gave my lipstick a nice shine to it, and it didn't "disturb" the color when I applied the polish on top of it. I just love how balm-y it feels on the lips. The long wear lipstick underneath though is no longer transfer-proof because I topped it with the PatentPolish.
