Plus a quick peek at MAC’s latest chubby pencil, the Patentpolish
Lip Product Lovers: Have you noticed that MAC has jumped aboard the chubby pencil trend with their limited edition Patentpolish Lip Pencils ($20)? As a huge fan of these portable, multi-tasking lippies, I could not wait to get my hands on a few shades. We took a look at three pretty hues:
Kittenish – muted peony pink
Sultana – black cherry
Patentpink – cool light lilac pink
MAC’s Patentpolish pencils provide a shiny, sheer, balm like finish that doesn’t wear very long (about 2 hours) but is fun to apply so you don’t mind reapplying! The chubby pencil is super portable and easy to find when reaching into your bag. Plus with a built in twist-up sharpener, you’ll always be prepared to quickly add a swipe of light color and shine.
I’m loving Kittenish lately – it adds a hint of reddish-pink, just-had-a-popsicle tint to my lips and keeps them feeling soft and hydrated as well. Make sure to check these pencils out the next time you visit a MAC counter. But act quick, they’ll only be around through May 15th.
Now onto the Lipstick League!
