Today I’m going to talk to you about Urban Decay Lip Pencil and my lip tutorial on how to whip up a full and semi-ombre lips. Oh… I love ombre lips and have been obsessed with trying out with several different looks but today I’m just going to do a semi-ombre only. Many of you may know that I’m a proud owner of this Urban Decay 24/7 Lip Liner pencil which I got from my Ipsy Glam Bag. Yay!!!
I did mentioned in my previous post that I’ll be doing a mauve lip look using the Urban Decay lip liner and that day came sooner than I thought. I’m so excited to share some of my lip tutorial using the Urban Decay lip pencil and lip gloss.
So, first thing first. The products needed for this look are :-
NYX Butter Lip Balm in Lady Finger, NYX Lip Liner Pencil in Mauve, Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Lip Pencil in Ozone and Lip Gloss in Bittersweet by Urban Decay (samples are from my Ipsy glam bag).
I start with applying NYX lip balm on my naked lips. Once it’s moist I go ahead to draw the lip outline using NYX lip liner pencil in mauve. I draw both top and bottom lips. For nice even lip, I usually use a darker shade on the outer lips and moving inwards with lighter shades.
Once I have a nice and even outline, I continue by applying the lip gloss in Bittersweet by Urban Decay around my lips but still leaving the centre untouched.
Lastly, I just use the Urban Decay Lip Pencil in the centre of my lips and again outside the lip outline so that the NYX lip liner won’t budge. Immediately when I tried this lip pencil on my lips, the tip broke because it as too soft. I have to sharpen it to do this lip look but there are sharp edges after sharpening that makes gliding a challenge. This ozone shade is in clear transparent that doesn’t show anything except been a lip gloss. It feels more like a primer than a lip pencil and I’m fairly disappointed to say the least. I heard many good reviews on this 24/7 glide on lip pencil but mostly in its color shades.
For me, this Ozone lip pencil doesn’t do anything for me except that it does hydrate lips. It supposed to block feathering and smudging. I feel that this clear Ozone formula lacks something important. The fact that it’s in clear transparent shade makes it difficult to know if it actually works or just a gimmick. I’ll have to say that this is not my cup of tea 😦 I will not repurchase it. This is just my own opinion and maybe you might like it, I don’t know.
Who love a good ombre lips this summer? Have you this Ozone Lip Pencil? Is it a hit or a miss for you? Please leave your comment on the section below.
