NYX Cosmetics’ Jumbo Lip Pencil in Hazelnut

This is a very soft color. I almost don't see any color at all, just a very slight deepening and muting of my natural lip color. (Other than the pearl finish, which is the most visible thing about this.) The brown color is attractive. If this were an eye pencil, or a cream base, it would also be pretty subtle, but perhaps not invisible.

I won't be getting this color again, but I have worn it occasionally, once I learned that it wouldn't just be a solid layer of brown, even if it is a neutral-bordering-on-cool shade.
