It's the Drama of It All...

I learned early on, that there are a few lip pencils on this planet that will pretty much go with next to any lip color. The first shade I learned of was MAC's Spice--a pencil that will match the natural lip tone of most medium to tan-skinned women. Needless to say, this pencil has been floating around my makeup bag, glove box, or fishing tackle box for just about every single year since I became privy to the above stated information. I'm always looking for new products that hit the market, but rarely am I willing to completely replace an oldie but goody with just any 'ol thing. This weekend, I purposely stumbled upon some theatre cosmetics that I couldn't help but indulge in. Typically found in costume or theatre stores, these cosmetics give you so much bang for your buck in the area of steadfast, well pigmented shades. By no means will I suggest using all aspects of any theatre line, but I will say that perusing these brands is an affordable and significant way to switch up the contents of your makeup stash. Although I was originally on the search for some Kryolan (Bollywood makeup gurus use this stuff religiously), I picked up an extremely long lip pencil by Ben Nye named, shockingly--Spice! One swipe, and I knew that I had found an exact match to my old standby. After shelling out only eight dollars, did I run to the car to match the swatch. Identical. Not only is it a five dollar savings, but the texture is very blendable and about a quarter to a third longer (7 inches!) than a MAC pencil. I say we all get a little dramatic and check it out.
