Lipstick Queen Chinatown Glossy Pencil - Crime

There is something inherently fun about a chubby lip crayon. The pencil-style applicator means you don’t have to be super careful with application and, in the case of this hot pink shade, being playful is practically required. Don’t be intimated by the bright shade — this hue goes on sheer and silky. A single swipe is noticeable, but not overly bold (layer it on for more pop). And there’s no need to worry about where you’ll find a sharpener big enough to fit this jumbo number—each pencil comes with its own oversized one.

Works great, though not what I thought

I bought a trio of these at a beauty shop over the holidays since I love Lipstick Queen. I admit maybe it's my fault for not reading the packaging thoroughly enough, but I thought I was getting a pencil or lipstick, and not a gloss in pencil shape. The product works well once you realize what you've got: a moisturizing, not sticky, lip gloss with a beautiful sheen that's extremely easy to apply. However, it needs to be said that because it's a gloss it comes off on whatever your lips touch, but it does not smudge onto your face or teeth. Because of this, layering the gloss for a deeper hue seems impossible. I've been using them over a traditional lip pencil or stain, and thrown it in my purse for easy reapplication.

Nice color, odd texture

Love this lipstick color. The red generally works on most skin tones. Not an orangey red but a deep red. I keep it in my purse for touch ups. Not my go to, but I do like it. Not as easy to put on like a regular lip stick--think Clinique chubby stick. Nice pigment, but texture feels a little grainy? Three stars.

Lovely lips!

This is a nice, light, moisturizing lip balm that has a great pink hue. I like layering lipsticks & balms for the look I like; however, his provides a nice& light natural look.

Worth trying out!

Cute packaging, easy to apply and gorgeous color.

The gloss itself is great and easily buildable without looking or feeling too heavy on the lips. The price may seem a little steep, but I've had mine for about six months, wear it all the time and have yet to sharpen it once, so its a product that will last you awhile. I'll definitely be purchasing more of these in different colors.

Great color
Purchased

Great color that layers on for a bright pop. I wish it stayed on better though. It tends to come off when I drink things. Also, the sharpener isn't the best.

Pretty in Pink
Purchased

I love the way this color compliments my complexion and also stands out on its own. This particular shade of pink is bold but flattering and the application is smooth and long lasting.

perfect color and texture
Purchased

Love this! Not too sticky, not too goopy, not too thick. Gorgeous color. When it wears off, the effect is a little like a lip stain. I just wish there were more colors available.

This lip pencil is beautiful - it's not drying like some can be and can easily be layered for bolder color.

Its ok

I was wanting to experiment with pink shades. I like the color but not really on me. If I layer it with a gloss or another lipstick I can achieve a color I like. I really liked the texture of this lip pencil and it has pretty good staying power. I like that it comes with a sharpener. But it will only work on the top. It seems like once you get to the level of the applicator you will have to depot it like a nyx eye pencil and keep it in a container.
