Today I am continuing my nyx lip product swatches, focusing on the jumbo lip pencils. In a previous post I swatched the Round Lipsticks, so check those out!
For reference I am NC35-40 in MAC and for Face & Body foundation I am C4. Right now I am leaning toward the end of that spectrum because I have some color from the sun.
Jumbo Lip Pencils:
Iced Coffee is a strange color opaquely applied. It is very brown toned and I feel it doesn’t go well with my skin tone. Perhaps it might look better on dark skin or fair skin. Applied with a sheer coat however is perfect for a nude lip.
Fuchsia is not what you would expect at all! You would think it would be a bright pink but instead it is a neutral mauve. I feel this color may not suit my skin tone all that well. But I am not used to these type of mauve colors, so it may just be that.
Chaos is a bright barbie pink color! I think it will work for any skin tone and doesn’t make your teeth look yellow. 😀
Plush Red is a gorgeous, bright red color. It doesn’t make your teeth look yellow and is a definite showstopper! Definitely recommended.
Burgundy is a dark prune-ish color. Great for the bold, dark lip, bare face look.

I put on more powder than I would normally wear because in the photos the flashback would make me look sweaty. lol
These jumbo lip pencils are very slippery. They are very comfortable to wear because they feel like a gloss rather than a balm or pencil. However, because of this, they easily slip all over. If you have problems with feathering this may not be worth the trouble, considering the whole point of the lip pencil is easy application and hassle-free. Like the round lipsticks, if you use these with a lip liner and blot they’re lasting power is dramatically increased. The good thing is they are easy to reapply and convenient to shove in a small purse to go out. Let me know what you guys think of these if you have them.
