BA STAR Review & Exclusive Discount

With Halloween scarcely behind us, Diwali in full swing, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Eve fast approaching, we’re now in Holiday Season! We’re finally in my favorite part of the year and I’ve been waiting all year for this. I love the weather (winter is my favorite season) and I love the holiday cheer and most of all…..I love holiday makeup.
How appropriate is it that right around this wonderful joyous time of the year BA Star decided to make me even happier with their wisely named Holiday Red Lip pencil? I’ve loved my Beauty (It’s some German brand) Poppy Red lip pencil for about a year but I was in the need for a deeper red. Poppy is a very bright and coral toned red. However, despite my love for deep red lips, I have warm-toned skin so warm toned lippies usually look better on me than deep cool-toned reds. That’s what I was afraid of when I first saw this BA Star Lippie but surprisingly enough it manages to be a deep red with warm undertones that looks PERFECT with my warm-toned skin. So to all my warm-toned friends looking for that perfect strawberry/berry red – I’ve found it!

Obviously, it’s shaped like a pencil and even though I didn’t like the transparent top at first, it makes sense considering there’s no other way to quickly see the color. You can lightly dot the pencil on your lips and then smudge it for a lighter red color.

You can also go over it with another coat for a deeper red. I somehow prefer wearing it like this. It may look a bit glossy in this picture but it’s actually quite a matte finish. I still find it more moisturizing than a typical stain.

Beautiful color!
You can wear it on it’s own and layer on a lip gloss.
Wear it sheer or wear it darker (Versatile!)
Not as drying as pencils, stains and matte lipsticks usually are.
Good sized product

The only thing I don’t like about this pencil is that the color smudges and spreads too easily but that could be because it’s so creamy. In this case I guess creaminess could be a good thing as well as a bad thing. Matte finished products don’t really smudge this much.

Overall I’m really impressed with this product. It’s a better red shade for my skin than I expected and if you’r careful about not smudging it, it’s almost perfect.
