BA Star Holiday Red Lip Pencil Review

Hello loves! Today I would like to tell you about the BA Star Holiday Red Lip Pencil! I would like to start off by letting you know that this is a sponsored post. I was sent this product from BA Star through BrandBacker in exchange for a review. All opinions in this review are 100% honest and mine. Now that that's out the way let's get started!

BA Star is a cosmetic line specializing in makeup for competitive dancers, cheerleaders, and theatrical uses; however, their products are great for everyday use as well! The prices are pretty affordable too. The lip pencil retails for $8.75 which I think is very fairly priced for this product. Besides lip pencils BA Star has tons of other products including: eyeshadows, glitters, blush & bronzers, and tools.

When I first received the pencil I was a little scared of the color. I just recently began experimenting with reds, but this shade seemed dark to me. However, once I finally used it I loved it! The color doesn't look dark on my lips and is actually a very pretty red. It is a matte shade, which I like because I don't own any other matte lip pencils. 
It goes on smooth which is great. It's a bit sheer so I had to use a couple of coats to get it to my desired shade. When I swatched it on my hand it lasted for over 8 hours and through multiple hand washes. But when I actually put it on my lips it came off a bit when drinking. It wasn't very noticeable though and only needed to be touched up in small spots.
This is after about 3 hours of wear. My lips were drying out just a bit.
Overall, I'm pretty impressed with this pencil. My biggest gripe is that it has to be sharpened. It's not a huge deal, just more of a nuisance. The only other complaint that I have is that it dried my lips out a bit. I'm not sure if it's because I didn't hydrate my lips before applying or if it just dries out after a few hours. 
The Verdict: While I'm still not 100% sure if I will be re-purchasing this, I have seen other products on their site that interest me. I definitely have my eyes on those glitters! All in all, I would recommend this product to others. If you are looking for a good matte shade that is buildable and long lasting then I would suggest checking this line out!
