Birchbox Breakdown

It took us a while to learn how to draw inside the lines, but our childhood addiction to coloring books is finally paying off. These user-friendly chubby lip pencils are a goofproof way to lasting, moisturizing color. A cross between a stain and a gloss, each gel-based tint goes on sheer yet stays true for hours. The wearable shades include peaceful, a beige-toned neutral tint; lucky, a soft pink matte tint; and joy, a juicy peach tint. Naturally, our favorite is amused, a bright fuchsia tint.

How to Use

Glide the blunt pencil over your lips (no need to fret about being too precise). When you want to release more pigment, just twist the base counterclockwise—no pencil sharpener necessary.

Pretty color but dries lips

I love Tarte products.
Lipsurgence color was pretty but it over dried my lips to the point to being unable to wear it.

Perfect tint!

I love this color for when I am ready for a different color then what I normally wear. Goes on smooth and lasts.

Not the right shade for me, but still good!

The color was tough, but I did like this product- especially when paired with a lip balm or gloss. It has staying power, but (as is often the case) gets a bit dry. I wore it around the house and ended up buying a different color since I liked the formula!

Great lip product!

I loved the smell and feel of this lip stick. It's a matte color but applies smoothly and stays on. I really liked it but the shade wasn't right for me. Either way I still enjoy trying it on.

I love everything about this lip tint - the saturated color, the moisturizing qualities, how long it lasts, how easy it goes on. Everything! It's my go-to when I need a punchy magenta that lasts all night and it's super shiny.
