This chunky pencil glides on effortlessly and delivers a creamy matte finish, made even better by the fact you can line the lips and ensure a super precise result; there's nothing more elegant than a perfectly made-up lip. Bobbi Brown's Art Sticks provide a blend of emollients and shea butter to create a rich creamy texture that allows for smooth and effortless application; you simply colour in your lips and you're left with a fabulous finish. These can even be applied over or under a touch of balm, finished with a slick of gloss or topped up on the go - unlike a heavy and sometimes drying lipstick, these don't compromise on comfort.
If you love the idea of lipstick but don't quite buy into the texture, then these Art Sticks offer a much more 'daytime friendly' approach to colour. They don't smudge or transfer nearly as much as a traditional lipstick, nor do you need to blot or faff when applying; you can add a touch more colour on-the-go, as well as using them in conjunction with a balm. They're so flexible, fun and much more practical than a sometimes messy bullet of colour - plus they offer so much product for your buck. I estimate you get at least double the amount of product when compared to a lipstick bullet, making them a wise investment for spring.
The Bobbi Brown 'Art Sticks' are available in ten shades, priced £19.50 each.
