Catrice Cosmetics Long lasting Lip Pencil #070 I Got You Babe
Are you girls enjoying the rain as much as I am? After reviewing a Wet N Wild lipstick, today I will be reviewing another important lip product. I don’t really own many lip pencils, though I have a lots of lipsticks. Lip pencils are very important to stop the lipstick from accentuating from the border of the lips. It is also important to give the perfect desired shape to the lips. It helps the lips to look fuller. The lip pencil that I am reviewing in this post is from a brand that will be new here on Makeupera. The brand I am talking about is a US brand called Catrice Cosmetics.
It’s the ideal preparation for fashion lips: this Long-lasting Lip Pencil sets color limits and prevents lipstick and gloss from streaking. It has a waterproof texture which guarantees ultra long-lasting contour. The creamy tip softly glides over your lips to ensure an accurate application.
#070 I Got You Babe
Catrice Cosmetics long lasting lip pencil comes in a pencil form. The entire pencil is in color of the shade. The cap shuts tightly and makes the packaging travel friendly. The tip has to be sharpened before use which causes a lot of product wastage. The shade code and name is mentioned on the pencil itself.
The texture of this lip pencil is not very creamy and soft. It’s hard and one swipe doesn’t deposit enough color. Multiple times the pencil has to be swiped to get a little color on the lips. It maybe because the shade I have is very light and so isn’t apparently visible on my naturally pigmented lips. I wish the texture was not very drying and softer for a smooth application.

Cons of Catrice Cosmetics Long lasting Lip Pencil #070 I Got You Babe:
- Makes the lips very dried out
- The texture is not very creamy and soft

- Cannot wear only lip pencil on the entire lip
- Not easily available
- Cannot be used alone as a lip color
My experience with Catrice Cosmetics Long lasting Lip Pencil #070 I Got You Babe:
I did not have a very pleasant experience with my first lip pencil. The shade is undoubtedly very pretty. But the texture is not creamy and feels hard on application. More so because it has to be swiped multiple times on the lips. It almost feels like hard rubbing of the tip on the lips. However the shade goes well under all pink lipsticks.
I tried wearing the shade alone as a lip color once and the formula was so drying after an hour that I had to rub it out as soon as possible. The lip pencil stays intact for almost 4 to 5 hours and also prevents the lipstick from accentuating at the corners and border of the lips.
I will rate it 5 out of 10
Will I recommend it again?
No. I did not find it so nice to recommend it to you all. However, you should try other brands for finding a perfect lip liner as they work wonders.
