Answers to Your Burning MAC Velvetease Lip Pencil Questions

Got some questions about the MAC Velvetease Lip Pencils the other day… Do they retract? From Tatiana: “They twist up, but do they retract as well? Or is it just a one way mechanism? I love the NARS pencils, but the caps always fall off in my bag and make a mess. Show More Summary

With Long-Wearing Matte Liquid Lipsticks, My Lips Are NOT a Winter Wonderland

Alleged Minimal Makeup
