NYX Cosmetics’ Jumbo Lip Pencil in Honey Nectar

...also known as “Honey”, or “720.” I have no idea why the various retailers and etailers - even NYX's site itself - say one thing and the product says another.

Photos that show how the product actually performs...! See how I create my swatches

A montage of three images: top left, close-up of the lip color in the tube; top right, the color applied over bare skin, to better show the shade; and below, the color applied to the lips.

The color is more red than it appears in the numerous site swatches, both etailers and NYX itself. It's largely a creme finish, with barely enough shimmer to be noticeable. It's a very subtle color and a very subtle effect. The online site swatches put me off - I thought it would be more brown-based.
