When it comes to drugstore makeup, other countries often get things earlier than we here in the states. This is great for those of you who live in other countries, but it requires a bit of patience on our part here in the US!
Last week I showed you the nude eyeshadow palette that L'Oreal has released in the UK (oh how I hope it comes here...soon) and today I want to let you know that those rumors of Maybelline jumbo lip pencils that we've been hearing about all year have finally come true!
Many thanks to my pal Halifax of Sparkled Beauy Blog (she does what I do, but for Canadian drugstore shoppers, by the way!) for this one. Halifax let me know that the Maybelline Color Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencilshave landed in the UK!
According to the blogger who posted that review, these are nice dupes for the NARS Velvet Lip Pencils, which retail for a cool $25 each.
Just like with everything else I post about from other countries, I have no idea if/when these are coming to the US. I would venture to say that we ARE going to get them, but that's just a gut feeling at this point based on the fact that jumbo lip pencils are everywhere and Maybelline has yet to release a version here in the US (actually, I think they did have jumbo lip pencils in the 80s or 90s but you know what I mean!).
Thanks so much, Halifax, for the tip about these!
