MAC Lip Pencil | Dervish


I'd wanted to get hold of the infamous MAC Lip Pencil in Soar but every MAC store I visited were completely out of stock. In some stores, every alternative to it was also sold out too so I kept my eye out on their website but then noticed a lip pencil called Dervish. I'd heard it to be a similar alternative to Soar so I thought I'd grab it and see what it was like. 

The product itself has a very creamy, smooth texture to it, making it extremely easy to apply and isn't chalky like some lip pencils can be. It is described on the website as a 'Pinky-mauve' - I would agree but I also think it's quite nude-brown, definitely a 'your lips but better' shade but with a slightly darker tone. Such an easy colour to wear on all skin tones. I often outline my lips to give the illusion of fuller lips as mine are quite thin and then I fill them in and leave them as an all over matte colour. On the other hand, I also use Dervish lip pencil as a base colour and layer it with a nude/pink lip gloss or lipstick which also looks lovely. It's a very versatile liner which I think can be accompanied by a number of lipsticks, browns, pinks and nudes. I think £12.50 for a lip liner is pretty expensive but I definitely think they're worth the price tag as the product is such a high quality and will last you ages. I will eventually get my hands on Soar when it comes back in stock!

What is your favourite MAC lip liner and what lipsticks do you pair it with? Let me know in the comments below, would love to know!

  1. I really need to invest in a lip liner but I never know which one to get. This looks like a lovely shade I'm looking for one to go with my nude lip stick so this looks perfect

  5. That colour is lovely! I've only had a couple of the MAC lipsticks - haven't had any of the lip liners. Are they worth the money?

    Thanks x
