They come in a twist up crayon packaging and have to be twisted from the end, from where the blender is. There is a white blender on the other side. The crayon has a black cap and the blender has a transparent small cap.
The texture is super creamy, it feels like butter and the pigmentation is amazing too. And amazingly they have a nice, comfortable, matte finish.
You can either apply it to inner half and/or outer half and create a shaded effect with the blender or mix two shades for an ombre lip.
The shade names are very funny, how and why Red 1, Red 2 :/ Could have had better names.
Here are the swatches:
I got the Mauve shade, coz the reds and pinks looked pretty similar to lip crayons I already have. Loved Coral too, and was loving the look of Orange too. Maybelline has again not launched the super pretty burgundy and wine shades the ColorBlur Lip Pencils have 🙁
These are slightly priced on the expensive side for Maybelline, I think around 400-450 would have been an ideal price but nonetheless I have tried it once and like it, will update with the full review super soon 🙂 For all others who are looking to try this out, I would suggest getting the Coral and Mauve as both the shades are quite different.
