I'm a sucker for lip crayon products. I picked this up ages ago but never opened it. In hopes of working through my makeup collection I started to weed through what I use and don't and came across this brown shade. Click down below to see the swatch and wear power.


What it promises:
It’s double or nothing with this lip liner and lipstick in one. Our masterful Jumbo Lip Pencils infuse lips with alluring, nourishing color, and help you create a perfect pout. Line, define and color with one jumbo pencil. Plus the mineral oil formula does not dry out your lips and it goes on smoothly. 
We likey.


What I found: 

I can not tell you what I was thinking when I picked up this brownish shade. I think I was going for a neutral look. It honestly looks like it'll have a pink tint to it but rest assure there's no pink in this.

I know some people can pull off the dark brown lip stick but I am not one of them. I don't like the color.

But I do love the consistency! It's so creamy and shimmery! I would love this in a pink or red. It's not frosty but it has a shimmer to it. This applies smoothly, sobe careful  around the edges so you don't go outside the lines.

The wear time is 4 hours with light drinking and eating. It doesn't last through a real meal. 

Pros:

  • Affordable
  • Glides on smoothly
  • Lip crayon handling 
  • Cruelty free. 

Cons: 

  • Doesn't last too long. 

VERDICT: I may not like this shade but I won't hesitate to buy this in a different color. I would recommend this line. I do plan on buying more of these in other shades!
