The colour is a gorgeous pink based natural color with a hint of mauve. It's the perfect colour for me as it's not too pale and not too bright, just a lovely shade that doesn't vary too much from my natural lip colour. A more muted pink can be achieved if this is worn on top of a nude shade like MAC's Creme d' Nude or with The Body Shop's Tantalising Lip Butter on top for a more milky colour.
The consistency of these pencils is one of the best things about them. They are incredibly creamy and soft so they only needed to be applied with a light hand. For this reason they glide beautifully and don't drag along the lips. Not only perfectly creamy, but highly pigmented too. In fact I'd go as far to say this pencil is just as pigmented as my MAC lipsticks and Rouge Volupte. Amazing!
Finally, this pencil has amazing staying power, better than any other lipstick I've ever used. I apply it in the morning and it's still there in the afternoon, even after eating and drinking (albeit a little faded). Therefore there's no need to constantly re-apply, perhaps the reason why I've had this almost a year and it's still going strong! Despite the fact this lip colour is long lasting, I've never had a prolem with it drying out my lips, another bonus.
I'll be looking to try some other colours next to see if they are just as fabulous as this one.
Has anybody else tried the NYX Jumbo Lip Pencils?

The best part of this product for me is that the smell reminds me of this...
Soap & Glory describe this product as smelling like bergamot, strawberries and mandarin, with floral and fruity mid notes and musk, amber and warm vanilla base notes. Delicious! Containing Shea butter and aloe vera, this not only smells amazing but it leaves skin feeling silky smooth and soft too. As a body butter however, I must say I do prefer Soap & Glory's Peachy Cream as I find it glides along the skin more easily.
The Righteous Butter is priced at £10.00 for 300ml and is available at Boots

♥ I graduated from Loughborough Uni with a 2.1
♥ Change my hair. I'd love to try going lighter, and also experiment with a fringe. I've always been cautious to experiment with hair, but I've realised it's just hair, nothing too bad can happen! I love the hair in the picture below, both the cut and colour are perfect...(the outfit too!)
♥ Buy our first house.We're currently house hunting and have found somewhere we love so we'll see what happens. I can't wait to move out of our awful tiny rented flat and have a home of our own. I'm already excited about decorating and have numerous wallpaper samples flying about!
