NYX Jumbo Lip Pencil - Chestnut

Tuesday 23 April 2013

Since I loved NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils so much, I wanted to give the Jumbo Lip pencils a go as well.

I picked up 2 colours, but the one I'm reviewing today is Chestnut. I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I ordered this, but I was pleasantly surprised.

Chestnut is a beautiful dark rose colour with a slight peachy/gold shimmer through it with a nice satin finish. While the shimmer really shows up on the picture below, it's not as obvious in person.

I love the formula of the Jumbo Lip Pencils, they are super creamy and just glide onto the lips without being sticking.

The only downside is can feel a little drying after an hour or so, but the colour still stays on the lips. Best to keep the pencil handy for touch ups to keep your lips moisturised or pop some lip balm on top.

Wearing this colour again brought back a little bit of nostalgia for me, it's very similar to my first ever lipstick, I can't remember the brand but I was only few £'s and I remember how much I used to wear it when I was a young teenager. With my dark brown hair, pale skin and a dark rose lip I thought I looked sophisticated beyond my years, where in fact I was just a 13 year old with lipstick! But that was the fashion in the late 90's early 00's (showing my age now!). But now I'm a fully grown adult I think I'll break this colour out more often for evening look.

All in all I like it, the colour and pigmentation is great, the price is good and I can live with the slight dryness after a while. They have a great selection of colours and can't wait to try more out when the store opens in Malta (Yes that's right NYX are opening in Malta)!

Have you tried the NYX Jumbo Lip Pencils?
