Now that my beautiful family of Lipsticks has grown, it’s high time I get an updated lip pencil suggestions post up. I know a few of you have been asking for this, so thanks for your patience!

My Velvets and Insanely Saturated Lip Colours are highly pigmented with a matte finish, which means you don’t have to use a lip pencil, but if you wish to create crisper definition around the lip line or tweak your shape, you can either apply a pencil in a shade as close as possible to the lipstick’s colour for subtle defining or use something deeper for stronger definition. Here are a few options for each shade, and please do let me know on Instagram if you have found any other great pencil matches that I can add to the list.
