Review time! I received from BA Star via Brand Backer their Holiday Red Lip Pencil. I'm usually leery of wearing a red lip due to the shade and undertone, but I went with it!

Packaging: Simple and sleek. It's a thick pencil with a black barrel and silver font. The end cap is silver which matches the font. The top cap is clear with two thin stripes of silver at the very top tying into the silver font.
Ingredients: Isopolybutene, Castor Oil, Ozokenite, Carnuaba, Candellina Wax, Beeswax, Petrolium, Buty Stearate, Cetyk Ricinoleate, Vitamin E, Precpylparaben, Metabylparaben, BHT, Macadamia Nut Oil, Octyl Palmiate; May Contain: Iron Oxides, Ti02,D&C Red 27 D&C Red 30 D&C Red 28
Scent: Kind of a vanilla scent, could just be me though.
Color: Vivid red that has a blue undertone to it. At first glance though, it appears to have a gold-ish sheen at the start, once you being applying it though, the frosty sheen disappears. I definitely have to say that it has a satin-like finish.
Texture/Formula: Smooth and creamy.
Overall Verdict: Definitely one of those worrisome colors for me due to the blue undertone. Other than that it is a beautiful color with a lovely finish. I did notice a little bit a staining though on the lips as the swatch on my hand. Besides that, this is a moisturizing lip pencil, plus I didn't notice any feathering. I would recommend this, especially for the up and coming holiday season.
