Annabelle TwistUp Retractable Lipstick Crayon in Cherry

Happy Sunday friends! Today I have Annabelle's TwistUp Retractable Lipstick Crayon in Cherry* ($9.95 CAD/1.5g) to share with you! This shade is just gorgeous, and it's definitely a statement shade that will get you noticed.

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. 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 Cherry, 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.

Cherry is a beautiful berry toned red shade with a glossy finish. You can easily use the tip of the pencil as a liner, which comes in very handy with statement shades like this one. I think that Cherry would pair beautifully with a neutral eye and cheek, but it can also be paired with a smoky eye for a more dramatic effect.

Overall, I'm very impressed! This shade is just gorgeous, and the formula is great too. Annabelle's TwistUp Retractable Lipstick Crayons are available in 20 shades, and I'm eyeing the shade Breeze, which looks like a cool lilac colour. Have you tried this formula before? Are you a fan of jumbo pencils?

  6. You always have such gorgeous lippie swatches. One thing about being in SF - they don't have Annabelle or Marcelle here :(
