BA Star is a company that has products directed toward dance, cheerleading, ect but like I have said before it is perfect for the everyday girl as well. Since their products are for performers they are always very pigmented and long lasting. I am always thrilled to get sent their products through brand backer and this little baby is no exception.
I received the Lip Pencil in the shade 'Holiday Red'. The name fits this lip pencil well because I would absolutely wear this color during the holidays. Before I get into my likes and dislikes, here's a swatch:
I love how vibrant and pigmented the color is and it applies very creamy. This lip pencil is long wearing and lasted about 5 hours on me. It leaves a little bit of a stain as it wears and I like that I can add a little gloss to the stain and it looks great. Even though it applies creamy, I think it dries matte. It is very drying but I don't think it is any worse than other matte lipsticks. I would suggest using lip balm before applying the pencil and then a gloss over. The thing I dislike the most is that it has to be sharpened. I don't like to put my lip products in a sharpener so I wish it had a twist up dispenser.
The BA Star Lip Pencils are priced at $8.75 each and they do have a few other colors to choose from on their site. Even though I think this is a good product I don't think that I would repurchase it. I love the color but I would only wear it on certain occasions during the holidays but I would recommend this product to people who can rock a red lip all the time.
