I am slowly getting used to wearing lipstick but I am not ready to go for the full red matte lip yet. Which is the reason I love these Big Color Glossy Lip Pencils as they give me color, shine and a bit of moisture. It is a trendy product as many brands have come up with jumbo lip pencils: see Sephora and Nars to name a couple. Avon’s Big Color Glossy Lip pencils are not as shiny as a gloss but more pigmented and they’re not as pigmented as a lipstick but shinier. I’d say these are a nice hybrid oflipstick and gloss even though Avon presents them as glossy lip color and liner in one. I wouldn’t say that these deliver on the “lip liner” claim. They are too glossy and creamy to hold and actually can bleed a little.
As you can see they do offer quite a bit of pigmentation and are very shiny and creamy. My favorites are Glossy Sunset and Glossy Mauve (which, by the way, isn’t “mauve” at all, more of a orangey-peach-nude color).
The least pigmented is Glossy Rose and, as you can see on the picture applied on my lips, it still offers a bit of color.
Overall I definitely recommend this product. They are reasonably priced at 9.99$ (and there are often sales on Avon.ca so you might get’em for less) and although the wear time isn’t the best (2 to 3 hours) their application is very pleasant and easy, no need to pull out your mirror and lip liner to touch up.
Also…you’ll need a big pencil sharpener for these :-) Buy here
