Maybelline Colordrama - Intense velvet lip pencil

I had my eye on these for a while now, because I think they could be a good dupe for the NARS lip pencils. I don't know what it is about lipproducts, but they always draw my attention.

I picked up 3 colors from the range. A classic red (Red Sensational), a berry toned one (Berry Much) and a daring orange (Fab Orange). These are the three colors I feel are all I'm ever gonna need. No nudes, I know. But if you know me even just a little than you'll know that I'm not the biggest fan of them. I'm a sucker for bright lips. If you take a quick look at my Mac lipstick collection you'll notice this straight away. 

So let's start talking about these babies. The packaging is quite standard for a lip pencil, which I like. It's easy to use and it doesn't take up too much space in your handbag. 

I was pleasantly surprised when I first applied it. I thought it would be tricky to be very precise because the tip of these pencils is quite wide, but I actually didn't struggle with it at all. 
They also applied way creamier than I had anticipated. It was like love at first sight <3
But then the heartbreak came creeping in. My excitement from before turned when I realised that the creamy feeling I had when I first applied dissapeared after about an hour. I started noticing my lips were feeling really dry and uncomfortable. Even though the color stayed on all night (even through eating and drinking) this does bother me quite a bit. But maybe that's just me. 
Overall I'd rate this a 7 out of 10.
