A little while ago a lovely fellow blogger, Latasha, sent me a few UK beauty products including the Look Beauty Fat Lips! in Pucker. Pucker is a coral/orange color that reads more pink on my lips (because of my lips’ natural pigment). It’s a gorgeous lip color that gives me that “just drank fruit punch” look. I’m going to compare the color and formula to other jumbo pencil balms stains like the Tarte LipSurgence and Revlon Just Bitten Kissables.
I won’t ramble too much about the Fat Lips! pencil since almost every single brand has their own version of a jumbo lip pencil. I’ve found them all to be very similar with the main difference being the strength of the scent (usually mint) and the thickness of the formula. The Look Beauty Fat Lips! reminds me of the Tarte LipSurgence LipTint in that they’re thinner than the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains which feel almost a bit waxy in comparison. I prefer the thinner formulas because I feel like the stain sinks in better and lasts longer.
Overall, I find all the jumbo balm pencils to be pretty much the same. Different brands may offer different shades and differ in price but they all deliver a balm-y tint to the lips. From the ones in the market, the Look Beauty and Tarte ones are my favorite. If I take price into consideration, I would pick the Look Beauty Fat Lips because at £6 (sometimes 3 when on sale) they are a much better deal. However, one thing that sets the Tarte Lip Tints ($24) apart is that they offer matte finishes (which are amazing).
Which brand of jumbo/chubby lip pencils is your favorite?
