nyx chaos

We've all heard about NYX's Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencils, but what about their counterpart for the lips? I discovered an unloved Jumbo Lip Pencil in my stash and have been using it for the past month - and surprise surprise, it's a bright pink.
Chaos is a hot strawberry pink, not quite fuchsia but certainly in the same realm. This Jumbo Lip Pencil is a dream to apply, it glides on without a hitch and is fairly moisturising. The packaging isn't the best as the lid cracked within the second use, and always ends up covered in gunk. A plus though is that the pencil is one you have to sharpen, I know I'm in the minority here but I prefer that over an automatic pencil as you can always get a sharp point, making it much easier to apply.
I've really been enjoying chubby lip pencils lately (I've been loving an Ulta one too) and my preferred way of wearing them is to apply less than you would to get full-on colour, then buff it in with my finger to stain my lips which gives a more subtle look, and it has the benefit of staying on longer too.

I also got a cheeky little Graze box in the mail...I'm giving it thirty minutes before the entire contents have been devoured. Heads up, you can get your first box free with the code DHW95GKD (free food, c'mon).
