These Jelly Lip Pens are amazing. Gorgeous things. Thanks to Clinique’s Chubby Sticks, many brands seem to have jumped onto the lip pencil / balm hybrid bandwagon.
Dior’s no exception with their Jelly Lip Pens.
A little blurb from Dior:
Dior turns the pro jumbo pencil into a trendy summer gloss. A moisturizing balm formula that combines pure colour, ultra-shine and lipcare in an intuitive applicator. Coloured like after biting into tropical fruit, the lips burst with sensuality without that feeling of unwanted texture for those long summer days.
The name itself – Jelly already got me excited. The scent? Sweet. Really sweet. If a sweet had this scent I would be sure to eat loads of it. Moisturising? Heck yes!!
This gives me the coverage of my favourite Guerlain Rouge Gs when layered on without drying my lips up. Texture is definitely jelly-like. It feels incredibly smooth and comfortable, wearing this. It does give me a lovely hint of colour that brightens up my face instantly, well the shade I’ve got does, at least. =)
636 Carioca takes on a peachy tone that has a bit of shimmer. Perfect wearable shade for me. It also lasts a reasonable amount of time on me, about four hours’ wear if I do not consume any greasy Asian food. It lasts through sips of water and a cup (or two) of coffee.
I can’t stop singing praises and I wish I could provide you lovely people with a swatch of this product, but all the photos I’ve taken does not seem to do justice to this pretty colour so…. I promise a proper FOTD will be up real soon! 😉
Until then, do check these out if you can! They retail at RM85 here, about RM20 more than Clinique’s Chubby Sticks but comparing them would be likening them to apples to oranges so I can’t say much, really. But one thing to note, though is that the Dior Jelly Lip Pens only house 2.75g of product whereas Chubby Sticks house 3g of product.
Not much of a different but I thought I’d let you lovely people know anyway.
But back to the Jelly Lip Pens, their texture is different to that of the Chubby Sticks, think I should do a comparison post soon! If I had to choose, I would go with the Jelly Lip Pens as I love how comfortable my lips feel after wearing them. Having family compliment my lip colour helps loads too. =D Dad, who’s not one to compliment my use of makeup (because he thinks natural beauty’s best) even said that my ‘lip balm’ looked really good on me.
FYI, I doubt Dad can tell the difference between a lipstick or a lip balm. =D
Have you caught onto the hype of these chubby pencils? Let me know what you think!
