NYX Cosmetics’ Jumbo Lip Pencil in Plush Red

Not as deep a red as I thought it might be. It doesn't lean orange, though - it's very close to a neutral red, if it isn't actually a truly neutral red - and while it is deep, it isn't an intense color. It isn't a shade that I can wear easily, but that's mostly due to preference. This is a very 1940s color.

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.

As you can see, this color has a tendency to feather a bit. I think that's also down to this shade, rather than the formula of these pencils specifically. I wouldn't be surprised if all of them feathered just a little bit, but they weren't nearly as noticeable because this color is so very pigmented and intense.
