Review:- Smashbox Double take lipstick in Apricot

The Debenhams website says :-
The doubletake lip colour from Smashbox is a lip pencil and creamy lip color in one! This vitamin-packed, long-wearing formula has caffeine and nourishing wheat glycerides to moisturize and protect lips

I do like that this lipstick is dual ended and that you get the matching lipliner with the lipstick
the formula is smooth, and creamy and has a good pigment it is a somewhere between a satin and cremesheen lipstick since i know alot of people prefer descriptions in mac cosmetic terms.
Im not sure what effect caffeine is supposed to have on the lips -maybe to wake up my lips??? lol!

The only con i would say is that it will need sharpening so dont make this your only handbag lipstick if you are not very efficient at making sure all of your makeup (pencils) are prepped and sharpened at all times

The colour is so this season, the name apricot really suits it s it is just that a peachy, coral apricot shade!
It is close to revlon peach colorburst lipstick and Mac Ever hip lipstick

I think this shade might be limited edition however there are four other colours available from the debenhams website

  • Sugar and spice

  • Amaretto

  • Praline

  • Cranberry

Ameretto is quite nice but my favourite of this bunch is Praline its a very neutral and versatile shade

This pencil is not cheap at £20.50
But worth it if you consider it as a lip liner and lipstick
