Sephora Pastel Pop Jumbo Glossy Lip Pencil Review & Swatches

Sephora Pastel Pop Jumbo Glossy Lip Pencil Glossy Orange

Sephora has introduced their own line of Jumbo Glossy Lip Pencils with their new Pastel Pop Spring 2013 Collection. Best part about these is they are near to drugstore brand prices at ten bucks a piece.

Nice right?

They are sadly limited edition though and come in a smaller variety of shades (a mere three le sigh!) but you might want to pick them up before they disappear.

Jumbo Glossy Lip Pencils seem to be the trend of the moment with all brands jumping in and doing their own variation. Sephora’s version is a twist up design with a fine chunky tip for application. The nice part about Sephora’s formula is the shade I tried had a very nice pigmented finish with a creamy texture. Most of the pencils I’ve tried have more of balm-y texture with a sheerer finish.

Sephora’s version seems true to pencil color which translates very well onto lips. I tried out Glossy Orange and the color had a nice pop to it with a tiny hint of sparkle and a high sheen finish. It wore comfortably for three hours before needing a bit of a touch up heading into hour four. The texture resembles a lighter lipstick versus a lip balm pencil like say Clinique’s version or Tarte’s. They are most comparable to the texture of Covergirl’s new pencils but have a lighter feel and a more moisturizing texture.

I find these pencils terribly easy to travel with and apply super quick on the fly for touch ups on the go without unleashing lipstick and gloss as the pencil kinda acts as both. Color, glossy finish, one pencil, easy to apply on the go. And cheap!

After trying out Glossy Orange I went ahead and ordered the two other shades before they sold out to add to my growing empire of glossy jumbo tinted lip pencils.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I had my fingers crossed that you would review these. Nice that they’re cheap, but not anything extravagant or pastel-y about them, eh?

    This looks lovely…I too, am always looking for a beautiful coral shade of lipstick so this will be the next thing I pick up at the mall. Thanks!

    Thanks for the review… Was inspired and picked one (glossy orange) up this morning when I was at Sephora. Love, love, love it!!!! Was a pit disappointed with the other two shades as they are very similar to each other. But this one really stands out. And smells AMAZING!!! Once again – the muse inspires. Thanks 😉
