Packaging: 9/10

This lip pencil comes in a classic pencil form that will need sharpening as you use the product up.

Quality: 9.75/10

New Lover is a pigmented, medium pink color with a gold sheen. The color is noticeable while still blending into, and without distracting too much from, the rest of your look.

The formula for this lip pencil is soft, creamy, and moisturizing. The formula is not sticky.

This product is not transfer-proof, but lasts significantly longer than your traditional lip gloss–about two and a half (2.5) to three (3) hours before needing re-application.

Ease of Use: 10/10

Because of the pencil form and soft, easy-transfer formula, this product is very easy to apply.

Price: 9/10

For $24.00 you get 0.09 ounces of product.

    Wow! I didn’t used to be a huge fan of these types of products but I am honestly going to have to try this one out! It looks so pretty and I have full faith in your judgement! The price seems a little high and I hope it will be worth it.

      There are definitely more affordable, great quality alternatives out there (NYX Jumbo Lipstick Pencils, or example). But for a higher-end brand, I really liked this shade/product. :)
