My Experience with Kiko 708 Fuchsia Smart Lip Pencil:
This lip pencil comes wrapped in a plastic cover. The body of the pencil is black in color and the cap is silver. The bottom part of the pencil is color coded and represents the shade it belongs to. The number of the pencil is written at the bottom on the body of the pencil.
708 Fuchsia Smart Lip Pencil is although termed as fuchsia, but it looks more like pure pink to me. It basically is a wooden pencil that will need sharpening to get that precise lining. The tip does not need sharpening up until 4-5 times of usage.
I am a big fan of such pencils as I am very particular about precise lining and do not like pencils that are twist up kinds, unless I am able to sharpen the tip. Although sharpening leads to wastage, but I kind of ignore it cause of my precision demand.
These lip pencils are very creamy and soft in texture and the application is very smooth. Although, it is creamy and soft, but in no way it is bound to break due to softness. It has this perfect balance of being soft and strong to be able to apply neatly without breaking.
I did not experience any tugging or pulling while application. The finishing is matte. I have dry lips and so I could not use this lip pencil on the entire lips as a base. I had to use a lip balm, either beneath or above it. So, I prefer to line my lips only.
Due to pigmented lining, the lip pencil does not look like a very vibrant one on my lips. It looks similar to the way it looks on my hand. It looks a tad muted pink on my lips. The staying power is for around 4-5 hours. But, it would not survive much through snacking, drinking water and definitely not any meal. Also, it does not seem to bleed outside the lip line. It is definitely not waterproof and can be removed easily even with water.
All in all, it is a good product, but not a must have one.
