MAC Cherry - the perfect blue based red lip pencil!

I used to be so scared of a red lip and really didn't think I would ever find one to suit me, but before Christmas last year I bought Nars Cruella, after lots of research and I am very happy with it. I was always wary of red lips because they can tend to make teeth look quite yellow, but because Cruella is blue toned, it removes that element. I decided to buy a red lip pencil to team with Cruella in order to prevent bleeding, but also to help the red to last longer. I chose MAC Cherry because it is also blue toned and to me, it is the perfect red.

It is a really creamy formula as with any other MAC lip pencil I have tried, so doesn't drag on your lips the way some lip pencils can. It would look beautiful worn alone, all over the lips, but also provides the perfect base for a red lipstick. I also think it would be nice over a lip balm for a sheer red tint to the lips if you don't want to go for the full on red lip.

Because I only own one red lipstick, I can see this pencil lasting me a long time!

  5. That looks lovely. I wear NARS Dragon Girl which is a bit brighter than Cruella & the lip pencil I use with it is Rimmel Lasting Finish 1000 Kisses in Red Dynamite.

  6. Will have to check out Dragon Girl - this was my first foray into red lip territory & I was nervous, but I'm hooked now!

  7. I have one MAC lip liner that was limited edition. It's really great! I use no7 fire as my red lip liner :) x

  9. I'm so bad when it comes to lip liners but I really need to start using them more often. So, thank you for the great review, I'm definitely going to pick one of these up!! :) xx
