I was supposed to include all the products that'll be mentioned in this post on my first "Marsala Week" entry but then I realized that it will just make the post too lengthy (and ain't nobody got time for that) that's why I've decided to just separate them. In this post I am sharing Marsala-inspired lip pencils and glosses that — in my opinion — would be perfect for the lipsticks that I mentioned on my first post.
NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Bahama ($25.00) - Combining the convenience of a pencil with the application of a lipstick in a jumbo-sized crayon design, these pigment-rich sticks provide a matte, creamy finish that will not dry the lips. Enriched with emollients, vitamin E, and silicone, each gorgeous shade glides on and stays put.
Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Honey Berry ($24.00) - Made with a double-dose of premium micronized pigments, this lip pencil delivers a modern matte look. This lip color delivers super antioxidant resveratrol, which fights free radicals with potent long-term antiaging benefits. Each lip pencil contains the amount of resveratrol found in five glasses of red wine. This product is free of synthetics, polybutenes, and petroleum byproducts and made exclusively with lip nurturing food-grade ingredients that are healthy enough to eat.
MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Lip Waterproof Lipliner Pencil in Beige Brown ($19.00) - Stop worrying about your lip liner smudging or fading. This nonstop, highly pigmented color is waterproof and stays put. It glides on with vitamin E and jojoba wax, making it is easy to shape and define your lips. The Aqua collection of lip and eye colors was created for the Parisian Aquatic Ballet. Tested under water for five hours, Make Up For Ever’s longest wearing makeup has an extensive palette of high-performance colors with nonstop results.
Bite Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayon in Glacé ($24.00) - BITE’s latest breakthrough formula boasts a collection of beautiful nudes, striking reds, and deep burgundies with a matte yet moist texture. The secret is the moisture-locking power of orange peel wax along with the antioxidant properties of resveratrol. The colors are water-resistent, and long wearing. The lips-only collection is certified gluten-free and made with food-grade ingredients, without sacrificing pigmentation or performance.
Buxom Full-On Lip Stick in Amsterdam ($19.00) - This hard-working triple-action lipstick defines lips like a liner, fills them in with creamy, velvet-matte color, and helps to deliver major hydration with vitamins A, C, and E. It also features a refreshing tingling sensation for a sexy, lip-plumping effect. The formula contains a deep infusion of antioxidant vitamins A, C, and E for soft, smooth lips. It also includes a built-in sharpener.
Laura Mercier Lip Glacé in Blush ($25.00) - Laura Mercier Lip Glacé is a high-shine, perfectly pigmented lip gloss that makes lips appear fuller, virtually enhancing any skin tone by creating a subtle contrast in texture. Containing the Laura Mercier Lip Complex, Lip Glacé hydrates and protects lips, leaving a wonderfully smooth surface. The non-sticky formula plumps and conditions lips, adding a glamorous touch without looking too heavy.
BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in Maverick ($18.00) - Luscious, vibrant color loaded into a refreshing formula that slips on satiny-smooth for sheer-to-medium coverage with nonstop glistening shine. Lips look fuller and more voluptuous. Naturally-derived Shea, Avocado and Murumuru butters help to deeply hydrate and smooth lips while an infusion of minerals revitalizes lips for a healthy-looking pout. All the while, an encapsulated vitamin A, C and E complex helps to deliver antioxidant defense, so you're ready for anything — and everything.
Yves Saint Laurent Baby Doll Kiss & Blush in Nude Insolent ($40.00) - Kiss your cheeks. Blush your lips. Play with color and mix and match your lips and cheeks. Yves Saint Laurent introduces the latest innovation in the edgy Baby Doll attitude. This 2 in 1 ultra blendable air whipped mousse beautifully highlights your lips and cheeks with a sensual soft matte finish.
