Play 101 Pencils from Etude House are gel-type pencils that comes with vivid colours and various textures for easy and fun makeup play. They can be used as lip colours, eye shadows, concealers and eyebrow pencils.
I bought a deep red colour #23 from Yesstyle for £7.90.
The pencil packaging is matt black and comes in a dark red box.
Play 101 #23 comes with a twist up bottom and has a fine tip for precision application.
I’m sure you can see from the picture above the pencil is so soft, creamy and feels really moisturising on the lips. It gives fantastic coverage and makes your lips looks plump and hydrated. You get about 4-6 hours wear on this lip pencil and it fades to a nice matte tint, without any colour bleed. The finish is shiny but you can blot it to give a matte appearance.
This colour is sort of similar to MAC Diva but a little less dark and has a high shine finish. It is extremely wearable even during the day because the colour isn’t bright, but more muted.
Play 101 #23 is perfect for you if you (like me) find that most lip products dry your lips, or if you find applying red lipstick difficult (the pencil takes all the work out of drawing perfect lines). My only issue with this product is that I can foresee it finishing quite quickly as there isn’t a whole lot of product in the pen, but overall I am delighted with it and will be looking into different colours in the Play 101 range.
