Elizabeth Arden introduced this new lip liner pencil to coordinate with their new Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipsticks that came out this Fall. These lip pencils deliver long-lasting wear and come in a variety of beautiful colors.
Sugared Kiss #09 is a plummy-bronze color with a hint of shimmer. It's very pretty and will work great with my Fall lipsticks.
These pencils are excellent quality and I love the new packaging. I will say however, that I don't particularly care for the sharpener and blending brush that is on the opposite end. While the "rubber" blending tip is unique, I just don't find that it blends the lip pencil very well, and it's a bit rough and harsh.
Also, when you remove the cap on the blending side, the sharpener comes off easily--so it's a bit of an annoyance. I would have rather just had either a blending brush OR the sharpener. Not both.
All-in-all, these are excellent lip liner pencils.
|Strange and awkward design -- the opposite end of the pencil has a sharpener AND a blending brush, which is "rubber" -- and when you go to take the cap off, the whole thing comes out.....kinda annoying.|
