The color I got was a matte hot pink, similar to MAC's Impassioned. It's very pigmented and true to how the color on the stick appears. The formula is creamy and easy to work with. I only swatched it, so I don't know how long it lasts, but it was rather hard to remove so I'm assuming it would. Very happy with it :)
I'm not sure if it was just the pencil that I bought, but it reeked of gasoline! It was the worst smelling makeup product I've come across. The color was stunning (ok maybe just a tad too shimmery) and it felt great on but I returned it straight away. What chemicals were I putting on my lips?!? I really wanted to like this for so many reasons, I just couldn't.
The color of this lip pencil goes on really soft and smooth, feels creamy and not at all dry on your lips, even after hours of wearing. Color-payoff is amazing and it stays where it should during eating, drinking and smoking. Also this particular color is such a beautiful kind of pin-up red, which I was looking for. Definitley considering getting this pencil in other colors as well!
I actually just purchased this lip color tonight and at first glance it didn't really convince me, seemed a bit too dark for my taste, but i said "lets try it out anyways." After coming home and trying it on i actually really liked it. It goes on smooth and hassle free, and is not drying to the lips at all. Big plus!
My favorite red
After searching and searching for the perfect blue-red lipstick, I finally found it. I walked by a SHAPES brow bar and was shocked at the massive NYX display they had. I was originally looking for this shade called Alabama but they were sold out. So the salesgirl recommended this one which is similar. I didn't think twice and I bought it. But I was disappointed that I paid so much for it, when later I found out they sell them at half the price elsewhere. Either way I'm happy with the product. It's goes on so smooth and the bonus is that I feel you don't need a lip liner as this works as one as well. The color is super pigmented and it's beautiful. The reason I'm giving it three stars is that you have to sharpen it or depot it to get the rest of the product out, and it's a plastic tube not wood, so sharpening it feels weird. I wish it was retractable like the clinique chubby sticks.
I decided to try this lip pencil from NYX to see how it works. I think considering the price, it is pretty good. I bought it for $2.99. I apply a little bit of Lip Primer from TooFaced, & it stays on for a little while. I am giving it three stars bc of its endurance. Otherwise, I think it is a pretty nice item to have in your purse for touch ups. My favorite color is Coffee. : )
My new go-to red!
I had been trying for the longest time to find a great red that lasted. I was weary of trying the lip pencil route but I am very glad I gave it a shot! The NYX Jumbo Pencil is very creamy and easy to apply on its own or with a lip brush. The variety of colors is great but this red is absolutely my shade :)!
love this :]
chestnut is a beautiful neutral pinky brown on me. gives me color! also got soft fuschia which is absolutely perfect for fall - its a deep warm pinkish color and very opaque! so gorgeous! theres so many pretty colors to choose from. it lasts long, its smooth and creamy, and doesnt dry out my lips hardly at all! I cant wait to get more! (side note: my mother got 'soft fuschia' as well but said hers broke already because it was too creamy. this hasnt happened to me before but perhaps it was in the heat too long or I noticed you really dont need as much pressure during application.)
Hot Red is my go to red lipstick. These lip pencils are creamy and glide on easily with a consistency much like lipstick, but have the staying power of a lip liner, I can easily get 6 hours of wear out of one application. These also come in a great variety of other colors, but for me, Hot Red is the perfect blue based red.
When I had an obsession with Marilyn Manson (it was brief, but it was definitely an obsession) I had to buy some red lipstick. I figured using a lip pencil would be easier because for some reason red lipstick just doesn't work for me. I did quite like this lip pencil, but it was a little too creamy.
