Review: MAC Nightmoth Lip Pencil

If you’ve been following my blog for the past week or so, you might remember my review of the MUA Lip Booms – they are both quite dark lipstick shades, and I realised when I was trying them out that I don’t have a darker lip pencil to go with them.

When I was in MAC yesterday, the make up artist triggered my memory about needing one and recommended the Nightmoth Lip Pencil!

When I was showed it at the MAC shop, it looked like a deep berry shade – although oddly, the packaging makes it seem like it’s going to be quite a brown shade!

Even the pencil itself looks an odd shade before it is swatched – I don’t quite get how it works! Here is how it looks in the pencil:

However, once it is swatched (or indeed put on to the lips!) it really comes alive! It swatches as a beautiful deep, rich berry shade:

I think this is going to look beautiful under the deeper shades of lipstick that I own – it’s also quite a creamy consistency but really does stay put. All fantastic quality for a lipliner!

The MAC Nightmoth Lip Pencil cost £10.50, which is more expensive than I would have liked but it really is a good quality product, so I hope I get some good use out of it!

Has anyone tried the MAC Lip Pencils before? I’d love to know what you think of them!

Stay Creative,
