NYX Jumbo Lip Pencil Review - Chaos

Most will be more familiar with NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils
as so many rave about their great base like qualities.
I have tried a few and was generally impressed by the formula
which lead me to trying NYX's Jumbo Lip Pencil's.
Today I have a bright pink named Chaos to share.

The packaging is pretty straight forward,
a black pencil like plastic tube that is easy to sharpen
yet solid enough to protect it's contents.
I like the fact that it is black as it makes it a little easier to differentiate
between the lip and eye version.

Chaos is bright blue toned fuchsia shade that runs slightly cool in tone.
If like I you find red's a little to bold I think shades such as Chaos
as it has a slight red ring in terms of colour would be a great alternative
and a brilliant way to add a pop of colour to your routine.
Chaos is some what similar to Mac Girl About Town
so if you are looking for a purse friendly version this could well be it!

You would be forgiven for assuming that these pencils would be similar
in constancy and texture to a lip liner but they are worlds apart.
NYX Jumbo Lipstick pencils are butter soft, they glide on without tugging
and deliver a high dose of pigmentation in one swipe.
The majority of shades do not have a matte finish rather a satin type result.
The beauty of such lip stick pencils is that they can line and fill the lips with colour
saving time and money on finding a perfectly matching lip liner.
The darker shades of the NYX Jumbo pencils do have a tendency to stain and feather
so obviously those last a little longer in terms of wear opposed to the lighter shades.
On average each shade wears comfortably around the 2-3 hour mark
so not the most long lasting of lip products out there but a good budget buy.

Product Summary
Round Up - A soft and comfortable to wear lip stick that is easy to apply.
Best For - It's multi tasking abilities (lipstick and lip liner)
Pigmentation - 8/10 - Shade Chaos, really pigmented and opaque.
Avaliability - Some BHS stores stock NYX, NYX UK website - link and Love Make-Up - link but love make-up do not have a great selection of shades.
