Annabelle TwistUp Retractable Lipstick Crayon in Flirtini

Happy Labour Day everyone! I'm at Dylan's cottage today, enjoying some rest and relaxation :) I hope you're all able to also enjoy the last official weekend of Summer!

Today I have Annabelle's TwistUp Retractable Lipstick Crayon in Flirtini* ($9.95 CAD/1.5g) to share with you. This is a gorgeous pinky red lipstick with an excellent formula. This is the third shade that I've tried from the range, and I've been impressed with all 3!

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 Flirtini, 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.

Flirtini is a gorgeous pink-based red with a glossy finish. I think that this is a great easy to wear red, since the pink tones make this colour seem a bit more familiar. If you've never worn a red lip before, then this might be the perfect place to start! You'll get that bold lip look, without going full on red just yet.

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?
