If eyeliners I love direct greatest love, the pencils for the lips - a totally different story. It needs to be so gel and moisturizing, so my lips looked decent, but, in fact, I met very few. Here is the pencils from Provoc was for me ... one of those "better left lip naked"
Where to buy? Cosmetics of this brand, you can easily find in many online stores, for example, Wildberris

Pencils for lips was originally packaged in a protective film, which is proof that the product had not been touched, never opened, and never inflicted. I love it when a manufacturer cares about its customers, and makes high-quality protection.
On the cover there is a small sticker, on which he placed all information. Its very small, but it is all useful, and useful in use.
Long wear gel eyeliner-pencil, Semi Permanent Gel Lip Liner lubricated, does not spread, does not leave marks on clothes. Waterproof formula with microcrystalline wax.
He pencil looks solid, the case itself is black, crisp white text and catch the eye, drawing attention to themselves.
On the tip of a colored portion and a number of shade, which can be easy to understand, and the store offline this is a useful feature. Also, this is useful when pencils Provoc in the Arsenal of more than one, and look for the one you want without opening every and just look at the tip.
Cover a transparent, plastic, closed well, and in transporting it from place to place, and flies.
The pencil lead is thick enough to sharpen his need almost before each use, as it is very soft, and is wasted in incredible amounts.
Semi-Permanent Gel Lip Liner makes it easy to draw smooth, with a bright outline. Turned the sharpener.
Texture - gel, I would call it more a creamy, very soft
Finish - Matt
Color - rich, dense
Initially I liked much more for the sole reason that the red shades, in my opinion, I don't really go. But, according to the characteristics proved to worse.
The second reason was the effect on the lips. Red, still, not so much fails on the lips.
Bright, rich red. A very beautiful shade that I absolutely is not.
Characteristics seemed to me a little better, as not so much fails, and emphasizes not so much the cracks and dryness. It's a given that your mouth problem I would not call.
METHOD OF APPLICATION AND THE RESULT
I tried to put pencil and clean bare lips and lips covered with a lip balm. Result in any of the cases I was not pleased.
Let us first discuss each method, view the result and make the shortest conclusion.
1. On bare lips
Pencil terrible sinks into all the cracks, just emphasizes all that is possible, and of course, with this result to go somewhere impossible. Since the pencil is dry, and lips are difficult to close, they stick together.
2. The application of lip gloss on top
Decided to rectify the resulting situation, and put transparent lip gloss on top of the pencil, as a result, still underlined all the peeling, cracks, but close your lips is quite real.
The view still looks pathetic, actually, and to correct the situation did not work out.
In different lighting it looks this "masterpiece" according to various, but different awful.
3. Applying pencil on top of lip balm
Difficult to implement as the pencil simply leaves a blank not plots, glides on the lips and the shade does not fully. But it is at least better than the first 2 options.
Just another light, the shade looks a little less bright.
The hue does not depend on anything, and both red and lighter shade behave almost identically. To tame them in the exact format in which they should go (matte finish) I did not like, as dry lips shamelessly, and looks to put it mildly, not very.
And if usually, to summarize, I have described the advantages and disadvantages, now you want to walk only disadvantages, and be done with it:
And in the end, I can only put 2 stars, and I can assure you that I use them more and I will not! Although, as stated by the manufacturer, the pencils really are resistant chic (24 hours will suffer no problems), not imprinted anywhere, it is possible to kiss her husband on the cheek, drinking tea, and the pencil will remain in place, not spread out and does not go beyond the contour.
