Maybelline Color Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencil in Berry Much

During a trip to London, Janna brought back two lip colors only available in the UK. Berry Much is one of them.

The Intense Velvet Lip pencils aren’t available in the U.S. at all. I was thrilled when she told me she managed to find the exact shade I asked for.


Here is the swatch:


The color is darker in person, and it builds up.

Berry Much is a rich dark berry with strong vampy tones. It reminds me a lot of Tarte Hangry in color. It has a plush velvet finish to it. It’s not satin and definitely not matte.

It fades after 3 hours, especially in the center. It mostly comes off after eating or drinking. It feels comfortable on my lips and doesn’t dry out the skin or feel too sticky. There is little “slip” as I rub my lips together, but it doesn’t feel especially greasy or creamy.

I like this. I don’t mind reapplying it so I will keep it.

    The shade is so wintery and beautiful ❤ I love applying this shade in winter ❤

  2. I have seen them around here, but have not yet tried one myself. They do sound alright for a lip crayon, so I will see if I add one to my big crayon collection.
