Jillian Dempsey for Avon Professional Multi-Pencil Review and Swatches

I don’t have any issues with lighter, natural makeup in the Summer. Who wants a ton of makeup on their face in this humidity? If you favor a more natural look or desire some lighter makeup for Summer all with a budget price you might want to check out Jillian Dempsey for Avon Professional Multi-Pencil.

Check it!


A dual sided pencil that’s purse perfect which offers a coordinate look for lips, eyes, and cheeks on the go!

I actually like this alot and recommend picking up one or two as they sure do make life easier particularly for chicks on the go, those who want a natural look, or anyone who wants a cheaper yet pretty makeup look.

This is a dual sided pencil that contains a eye shadow/highlighter on one end and a cheek and lip pencil on the other. Multitask away peeps!

Both sides sport a creamy formula with plenty of pigment. They are available in three shade selections two of which I just placed an order for and the third which I’m reviewing for you today in Sugar Plum (eyes) and Rose Bon Bon (lips and cheeks). Sugar Plum can be used to line, fill, or just as a little highbrow highlighter to make eyes look more awake. The shade is a sugary shade of pale whitish pink. Now the star of this show, in my opinion, is Rose Bon Bon which is a warm shade of rose that mimics a sweet blush or a just bitten lip. The shade is warm, cozy, and very flattering. It can easily work with many skin tones since it’s a deeper rose with a nice bit of color pay off.

The finished look is one of simplicity. Your lips cheeks will sport a warm dusky rose shade while your eyes will have a hint of sparkle.

Honestly I don’t have alot of ranting with this because I’m too in lust with it particularly the lip and cheek part but of course, like Stila Crushes, this freaks me out as I don’t like using on my lips and proceeding to follow up on my face, little grossness there but it’s a little problem in the big picture of things.

  • Anyone who wants no nonsense makeup that’s travel friendly yet flattering!
  • Anyone who wanting to tote around three products in one package (lips, cheeks, and eyes here).
  • Anyone who likes natural makeup!

  • Anyone who wants a bolder look.
  • Anyone who isn’t keen on using the same pencil on lips and face!

I really liked this one and thought it made a great carry around product for quickie touch ups. It’s also fabulous for lighter makeup in the Summer, quick errands when you don’t want to leave the house without makeup, or just on days you want a minimal makeup look. The packaging is ideal as you can do eyes, lips, and face with the one product plus the price tag of around $8 bucks (or right now get 2 for $9.99) doesn’t kill your bank account.

Loves it.

Muse Approval for purchase.

I think you’ll enjoy this one.

    I have this product in the same colour as reviewed and I too love it, its great when popping out for qucik touch ups and when wearing matching eyeshadow in a deeper colour the highlighter is lovely on the brow bone and inner corner of eye! Great review! 🙂

      hey colette cool 😀 happy to hear another lover! Aw thanks glad you liked the review and thanks for the tip on sharpening 😀

  • Colette

    Oh I meant to say, I sharpen after use on my lips if I am then going to use it a cheek stain … sort of helps me get over the grossness of using one product for lips and cheeks! It probably doesnt fully irradicate my fears as a germaphobe but it does make me feel a little better.

  • eckness

    Im a bit curious as to how you apply this pencil to your cheeks.. do you just scribble a circle with the pink end of the product on your cheeks?
    Also, does it blend easy?

    Thanks =)

    • the Muse

      just dab on eckness. It’s a very creamy pencil so dab on a few dots and blend. yup blends easily 🙂
