The shade i got is Rose which is light mauve pink, a perfect shade for your no makeup makeup look. It does not feel heavy on lips and becomes part of lips without creating any creamy or sticky layer. As it has slim tip you might find it difficult to apply on lips, it is like coloring an image on canvas with pencil but if you are used to of lip pencils it will not be that hard. The only thing you have to be care full is retractable pencils have tendency to break quickly if you are not very care full. Do not twist up too much and apply with only small tip of pencil to avoid breakage. The texture of this pencil is really good it is smooth to apply, provides matte finish but it is not drying at all.
I am impressed with the lasting power of this pencil as well. Once applied it stays more then 4 hours which is good for such budget friendlily product. While fading it doesn't flake but fades evenly which is almost unnoticeable. It doesn't dry my lips after fading but make sure to scrub the lips before application to get even application.
Overall this pencil is gem in such reasonable price, It has soft texture, applies smoothly provide matte finish without drying out the lips.
