REVIEW: Marcelle Waterproof Lip Definition Crayon (NUDE)

Lip liner is something that I rarely use. I personally find it to be cumbersome and let's face it, I'm not good with drawing, never have been and never will be and attempting to draw my lips usually results in me looking a little clownish.

When I received Marcelle Waterproof Lip Definition Crayon in the shade Nude*, my heart sank a little. Not only it's a lip liner but I have never successfully find a nude shade that suits my medium skin tone. Picture me as an extra in the Walking Dead, nude shade washes me out and I will instantly look sickly.

I was pleasantly surprise to see how beautiful Marcelle Waterproof Lip Definition Crayon (NUDE)* looks on me! However, I have to make it clear that this is not your usual nude. The shade leans more towards warm rose with brown undertone on my lips. Don't get me wrong, I am not complaining because the shade is brilliant on me but I can see others frowning on the misleading name and shade.

This lip liner is soft and applies very smoothly, definitely one of the smoothest that I have tried. It didn't tug at my lips and I can easily apply it all over the lips as a lipstick. It is very tacky after application but the tackiness disappears after 5 minutes or so. Just don't go smacking your lips like a pervert and you'll be fine.

Unfortunately this didn't last as long as I like it to be by itself. I only managed 2-3 hours wear without eating/drinking before I start to notice some fading. However, when I use NYX Butter Gloss in shade Tiramisu on top of it, I could easily get a 4 hours wear with only drinking.

Another downside of this lip liner is you have to use a sharpener for it. It's not a retractable or self-sharpening pencil which what we lazy people like these days. Is it a hassle? A little but it's no biggie.

This is my first Marcelle product and I must admit it's a very good introduction. I'm definitely a fan of this lip pencil and am really curious about the other products from the brand.

Marcelle Waterproof Lip Definition Crayon is retailing for CAD10.95 and can be found in all major retailers in Canada.

Have you tried anything from this brand?
