Jumbo Lip pencil in Fuschia

Jumbo Lip pencil in Iced Coffee
......................................................................
You must have definately heard of NYX's famous Jumbo eye pencils, well now they come up with the lip versions which is just a treat!
.......................................................................
Fuschia - This is a gorgeous mauve color, a sister to their very famous lipstick 'Thalia'. I usally prefer warm toned colors however this is slightly blue toned in my opinion. Which means whiter teeth - *shrug* I dont mind! :) Although these may look a pigmented mauve pink, it is actually pretty much of a nude-ish pink on application. Universally flattering colour this will be!
........................................................................
Iced Coffee - I had to pick this one. I have always been very fond of nude browns as it is difficult to find a decent one. This one is quite pretty as its not completely beige - hence wont give you the corpse effect and is neither too brown for my preferance. Its a nude beige-brown which is perfect to pair with smokey eyes and it wont look harsh too. Infact it has some flattering peachey undertones in some lighting which makes it appear absolutely stunning.
......................................................................
Consistency/Texture - Think butter! I am not even kidding, they're buttery creamy colors packed in a pencil. They are so soft you have to apply them lightly and they glide like a dream. No dragging for me :) They are neither overtly glossy/shimmery nor completely matte. I would call them semi-matte, almost a dewy finish to give the appearance of luscious lips. They wont look dry hence you can even get away with just applying this and skip gloss completely.
.......................................................................
Pigmentation - They are just as pigmented or dare I say more pigmented than many high end lipsticks. Infact Fuschia is a perfect dupe for Nars Velvet Pencil in 'Sex Kitten'. It may not look so in the pictures above, however it is exactly the same - besides being matte. Then why spend so much on expensive lippies when these deliver so well? We all know no lipstick will stay on our lips forever. They all come off within a few hours and so does this.
........................................................................
Overall, these babies are delicious coloured butters packed in a pencil. I plan on getting many more!
............................
I love getting them from here - its dirt cheap, they have a whole range of colors available, plus the shipping is so reasonable - What more can you ask for :)
...................................................................
Any of you's ever tried these? Anything similar you found or better for the price?

I found this ebay bargain so thought I shall let ya guys know! I know some of you's despise ebay to shop from so just ignore this post :p however the ebay addicts that are here, this is for you :)

Basically this seller named wildcentury is selling some good quality makeup brushes and coastal scents 'inspired' palettes for a quater of the price you would get them for in shops.

I totally love the red and black brush set, and I have seen some reviews of similar brush sets on youtube that claim these to be uber soft. It would make a nice treat for someone or great to start off your brush collection. Or if you run out of reasons, use one like me - 'I feel I need these brushes'.

As for the eyeshadow and blush palettes you see above, I am sure you have seen similar ones on Coastal Scents. However I always tend to look for cheaper alternatives as CS shipping to the UK is a total ripoff!

Anyhow, they look freaking similar to me. I would ask the seller of their finish (shimmery or matte) before purchasing it. The seller also does the contouring pallete and the 88 eyeshadow palette versions. I find these are pretty efficient for expanding ones makeup collection, especially when purchasing each MAC eyeshadow for a tenner becomes hazardous for the wallet.

Another great thing is that they all retail for under £10-15 including postage :D Also the fact that the seller has 99% feedback and is UK based makes life a whole lot easier.

Hope you lovelies are having a lovely start to a brand new year ♥
