Press hard on paper with a red crayon, and you'll get a special texture: smooth, rich, and incredibly flat - it's one color with no variation.
The same principle applies to Tarte's matte lip pencils, which use all-natural ingredients like beeswax to coat your pout in a singular hue and shape - as if you were literally drawing on your lips.
That's great for those who love wearing deep red or hot pink - the colors don't rub off on glasses or kisses, and show from a mile away. But those who prefer natural shades can also find some excitement with this stuff - you can use them to outline and shade your lips, and enhance their size or shape.
Much like our Crayola fixation during childhood, we're kind of obsessed.
