My Take on NYX Jumbo Lip Pencil – Maroon:

This is a very creamy lip color. It’s kind of hard to apply without a brush. It goes on too thick and heavy if you apply it like a pencil. This is a very dark color, something my mother would wear. It’s not very youthful or bright. I’ve tried on a lot of maroons, but this is a very dull color.

I tried very hard to pull this color off but it’s very hard to without looking like an old lady. Plus I’m on the dusky side so it just makes it worse. I took almost a billion pictures to get the perfect picture of my lips but this color is just so BLAH that in almost all the picture my lips looked thin and “aunty” type.
The formula is very hydrating, my lips don’t dry out. The lasting power is okay; it depends on how you’ve applied it. If you just colored your lips with a brush it would last about 2-3 hours, but if you’ve applied it from the pencil itself it would last 4-5 hours. It does not survive meals. The color disappears leaving a slight maroon stain.

I did notice some light and dark patches if I apply it from the pencil itself. It goes light on some part and dark on others. You would need to even it out at the end with your finger or brush. And if you mess up even a little bit applying it, and try to fix it with your finger, well, you can expect a striking red stain on your skin.
No doubt this is a very good pencil, its soft, hydrating, easy to apply, but I wouldn’t recommend this color. Maybe because it’s so dark, but I think it would surely be a good lip pencil in lighter colors.

Would I buy NYX Jumbo Lip Pencil – Maroon again?
No, not this color. I would like to try one of the lighter colors to see if they show the same result has the dark ones.

I haven’t tried this very product. I use Wonder Colour Lip Liner and it’s amazing. It comes in four shades and all of them are worth to use. The product is easy to use and glides on smoothly.
