Annabelle TwistUp Retractable Lipstick Crayon in Royale

Jumbo lip pencils seem to be taking over the lip stick world! Annabelle's TwistUp Retractable Lipstick Crayons are a great drugstore option, and there are 24 shades in the line. Today I have the shade Royale* ($9.95 CAD/1.5g) to share with you!

First of all, I'm so happy that these lip pencils are twist up! I hate having to sharpen anything at all, so this packaging is right up my alley. The pencil format makes application really easy, and the product is essentially a lip liner and lip stick all in one. The shade Royale is a beautiful berry with slightly blue and pink undertones. This pencil has good pigmentation, it isn't sheer but it isn't a very bold lip either. I love lip products like this that are really easy to apply and wear. I can apply Royale on the go without a mirror - partly due to the lip pencil packaging but also because of the formula.

This formula from Annabelle glides on smoothly, and leaves my lips feeling smooth and hydrated. The creamy texture is also slightly tacky, meaning that this colour stays on my lips for quite a while. I can get about 5 hours of wear out of Royale, and it stands up well to light eating and drinking. I haven't had any issues with this lipstick bleeding outside of my lips or transferring onto my teeth.

Overall, I'm really impressed with Annabelle's TwistUp Retractable Lipstick Crayon in Royale. This berry shade is appropriate to wear year round, and I feel like Royale would look great on almost any skin tone. Have you tried this lipstick crayons from Annabelle before? Which shades are your favourites? :)
