Nothing like the bright shades of A'pieu Satin Color Lip Pencil to lift Autumnal moods. Jump in for my review and lip swatches!

By now you undoubtedly know that I love bright lippies - bold reds, purples and pinks will always reign supreme in my makeup collection, and while I'm shopping.
So it should come as no surprise that when I was picking shades from A'pieu Color Lip Pencil line, I went with another two bolds!

The Color Lip Pencil in Satin formula is supposed to be less glossy and more longwearing, but when you apply it straight from the tube it looks just like any regular lipstick.
The change comes about 15 minutes in - nothing drastic, but the lippie settles and becomes slightly more matte, and the feel becomes satin-y instead of creamy.

It will stain the lips - I find myself removing traces of it after 12 long hours of food, drinks and talking. It's not transfer proof - until you blot away the shine - after that very little will end up on your mugs.
My tip for wearing these is to apply a full layer, let it sit for 5 minutes and then blot, and apply another layer. Blot afterwards - you'll be left with the full pigment, long-lasting colour, but a lot less transfer!

These lippies actually came in two phases - I first got the A'pieu Color Lip Pencil in PK02 Cherry Pie, because not only does the name is reminiscent of one of the best, and naughtiest, rock songs, the shade seemed like the perfect balance between a pink and a red. I got this in Spring, and have worn it very frequently throughout the summer.

I was right - this shade is right in the middle between being a bright fuchsia pink, and a cherry red. Depending on the lighting it will look either more pink, or more red, but always fabulous!
Now, that being said, this is not a 'summer' shade - it's very versatile and will look amazing no matter the season.
I  can totally see this as the 'It' colour for Christmas & Holiday soirees!

The swatch you see here is one coat, straight from the tube - it's insanely pigmented and smooth! As you can see, there's a decent amount of shine, but as I mentioned - it settles after a while.
It has blue undertones, so do beware if you prefer warmer shades!



Fast forward a few months later and I was so in-love with the A'pieu Color Lip Pencil Satin formula, that I decided to pick up another shade. This time, as it was nearing Autumn, I went with a darker plum/oxblood RD04 Ending Page.

Same deal as with the PK02 Cherry Pie - ridiculously pigmented and smooth formula that, if you play it right, will last for hours on end!

The RD04 Ending Page is a more muted oxblood shade that is simply divine for Autumn - pair it with a smokey eye, or make it the highlight of your makeup by wearing the absolute minimum on your eyes (in my case it's just mascara). Not to mention that it will complement most outfits, whether occasion or for the office!

Again, just one coat - it's incredibly pigmented, and the tint lasts forever! There's one difference, from my experience - the RD04 Ending Page is less shiny upon first application than the PK02 Cherry Pie. I think this is due to pigment itself, because otherwise the lip-feel is identical.

Now, the A'pieu Color Lip Pencils come in a rounded shape - which, in my opinion, is really not ideal for applying such pigmented lippies. I wish they were shaped like an actual pencil, because I struggled getting a clean line straight from the bullet.

My tip - for ultimate precision use a lip brush! Or, if you messed up, dampen a cotton bud (Q-tip) with some makeup remover and sharpen up the lines. Just water won't do, as the stain really sticks.

I absolutely adore the A'pieu Color Lip Pencil Satin lipstick formula, and the shades are amazing. I see myself using these to the core in the coming Autumn/Winter season, and I highly recommend you pick up a shade or two for yourself!
