NYX Jumbo Pencil in Pink Nude

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.

Pink Nude is not at all a nude shade not even in bullet form,
it is in fact a light yellow pink which has a high pearl finish.
Applied it is very much an oyster shell pink shade with a high level of frost.
I don't personally find this shades all that pleasing nor flattering,
they are a little dated and stuck in the 80's for my personal taste.
The problem with such shades (frosty dead lips aside) is that they can
also make your teeth appear much more yellow than they actually are...yuck!

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 or gloss 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.
