7 must-have pen products
I’m just going to put it out there – we’re all getting lazier.
We text our friends instead of calling, write a status to update people on what’s going on in our lives and check the weather on our phones instead of opening the window and looking for ourselves.
The beauty industry has cottoned on to this and is now catering for all us lazy girls, producing a range of make-up, dental and body care products in pen form. Happy, happy days! These are on high rotation in the bh office…
Struggle to perfectly line your eyes? Say hello to the solution: Designer Brands Absolute Precision Liquid Eye Liner Pen. The felt tip allows you to draw lines with absolute precision – even if you’re prone to shaky hands!
If you haven’t already heard of (or stocked up on) Yves Saint Laurent Touch Éclat, where have you been? Honestly! The illuminator kick-started the pen trend, and it’s not hard to wonder why. Along with illuminating the face, brushing away signs of fatigue and fading imperfections, its pen-like packaging means it’s super easy to apply. We recommend applying it under the eyes, along the bridge of the nose or anywhere in need of a little brightening.
It’s pretty standard for eyeliners and illuminators to come in pen form, but blush? Not so much. The Clinique Chubby Stick Cheek Colour Balm is awesome - brush it straight onto cheeks for a sheer tint of colour. The formula contains goodies like vitamin E to hydrate skin at the same time.
#4 Lip colour
Pens and crayons are pretty much the same thing, right? In this case, we’re going with a resounding ‘yes’. Burt’s Bees 100% Natural Lip Crayon delivers creamy, matte colour, and the wide crayon tip makes filling in lips super easy.
At-home manicures often end with about as much nail polish on the nail beds as on the nail. Thank the beauty gods for Sally Hansen Quick Care Clean-Up for Manicures. The pen erases smudges with a chisel tip applicator, so you’ll never need to rush to the salon to fix a botched DIY job again.
If you want pearly whites all day everyday, invest in Paula’s Choice Brighten Up 2-Minute Teeth Whitener. Perfect for on-the-go touch-ups, the formula eliminates stains quickly, so pop one in your handbag when you’re heading out for coffee or red wine.
Does your fragrance fade before lunch? Try a solid perfume. Carry it around, and swipe onto pressure points when necessary. We recommend the Lush Breath of God Solid Perfume – the combination of cedarwood, rose, ylang ylang, vetivert and lemon is divine.
