NYX Jumbo Lip Pencils – Small Haul and Swatches.


After seeing that Amy used these pencils and liking how they looked on her, I had to give them a shot. Everyone seems to be using some sort of NYX product these days as well, which was just another excuse to have a go. I got three pencils, for comparison, in three very different shades: Deep Red, Soft Fuschia and Iris.

And for some reason I can’t really fathom I swatched them in reverse order. The Iris is a pale frosty pink shade, the Soft Fuschia looks like a very dark nude pink swatched and the Deep Red scared me with how bright it was.

I really don’t like the Iris shade on. I guess frosted colours just don’t suit me – and it looked awfully silver in the light which made me feel like a robot.

The Soft Fuschia comes out a much lighter shade when it’s applied to the lips and I feel it just enhances the natural colour of my lips. I really liked this shade on, and it’ll probably become one of my every day staples.

And the Deep Red was just… I was quite shocked. I’ve never really worn red lipstick (or red anything) before and was surprised by how it looked on. The picture makes it look a little bit lighter than it really is – it’s actually a fairly dark, almost blood red.

The application of the pencils was really easy – they dragged on the first swipe across my lips but after that they were smooth and just felt really creamy. I’ve only had them for a day so I’m not too sure about wearablity and if they’ll have a drying effect on my lips, but I will be sure to let you know.

I bought the three pencils as a bundle from Joy’s Cosmetics shop on eBay for $6.99 plus P&P for a total of $10.52, which through PayPal conversion was only £6.70ish. She has most of the NYX products available for pretty cheap. She also ships out super quick – I paid on the 26th of January and they were sent out the next day on the 27th – they dropped through my letter box yesterday, the 1st of February. All the way from America.

Have any of you tried out any NYX products that you absolutely adore?
