The colour result is suprisingly subtle, making this a perfect product to use on the lips all day for a delicate finish - dialing up the colour and finish with a hint of clear gloss. The precision tip (kept that precise by the chunky sharpener included!) enables you to line the lips for a super elegant result, while the chunkyness of the pencil helps you to fill the rest of the lip area in seconds. Because they're 'art' sticks, you can even use some of the colours on other areas of the face - there are some fab peachy, brown shades that would look great as a cheek stain, while some of the stronger colours would make great eyeliners. Put simply, this is a pencil version of the lip crayons we're used to seeing; it won't be for everyone, but it's great to see Bobbi Brown pushing the boundaries while making lip colour even more accessible.
The Bobbi Brown Art Sticks are available exclusively in Selfridges as part of their Beauty Project this May, priced £19.00 each.
