MAC – Lip Pencil in Hip N Happy

Well today has been lovely and bright and sunny and feels just like the first day of Spring. So I’m bringing you a review of a lovely pink Lip Pencil from MAC to help get everyone into the Spring spirit!
A few months ago I wrote a review of Clarins Lipliner Pencils in Bay Rose and Chocolate, and talked about how lip pencils had become a bit uncool. Since then I’ve been trying to increase my collection of lip pencils (which was woefully pathetic in size compared to my collection of lipsticks!) and I recently treated myself to this lovely Lip Pencil in Hip N Happy from MAC.
MAC has such a great selection of Lip Pencil colours available and whilst they’re not cheap they are good quality. This pencil is neither hard nor soft, the perfect consistency to use around the delicate lip area, and you can use it just to line the lips or also to fill in the lips to provide a long-lasting base for your lipstick.
Hip N Happy is a bright Spring sugary pink shade, and it’s perfect for me as I love to wear pink lipstick and have quite a collection. You can see from the image below that Hip N Happy is actually quite close to my natural lip shade, and it doesn’t show up too obviously.
I find that a good lipliner pencil will work with several different shades of lipstick, not just one that exactly matches it. As well as pink shades Hip N Happy also works well with corals, below I have teamed it with MAC Flamingo lipstick – an orangey coral shade – which works really well.
I love MAC make-up and their in-store customer service is usually great too. I think I might treat myself to a nude shade of Lip Pencil next time I buy one, perfect for natural make-up looks.
What do you think of Hip N Happy? What’s your favourite MAC Lip Pencil shade?
Lip Pencil in Hip N Happy is priced at £12.50, available from MAC Cosmetics.
