Packaging:
The Patentepolish Lip Pencils come in retractable black lip crayon tubes embedded with subtle silver glitters. The tip of the lip crayon is dome-shaped. The shape looks really cute but it actually makes application less precise, especially near the corner of the lips.

Formulation:
Right off the bat, these lip crayons remind me a lot of the Revlon ColorBurst Lacquer Balms. It has a lightweight and slick formulation with a juicy sheen. The pigmentation is sheer but very buildable, one coat provides a tint of color and several gives a more intense pout.
The formulation is moisturizing but the wear is just okay, three or four hours with minimal eating/drinking. Additionally, these have that classic vanilla MAC lipstick scent.

Teen Dream: Soft papaya orange
Pleasant: Bright berry pink
