Pencil style applicator is all in the rage right now. I came across this when shopping at the Barney's and I remember reading good things about this hybrid lip gloss / lip balm. I decided I just had to get it [I am quite addicted to lip products!]. The chubby hot pink pencil goes on sheer and silky, so no reason to be shy. The glossy pencil left my lips feel soft and smooth thanks to the enriching avocado oil. The pencil comes with it's own sharper which is good because none of my 5 sharpers fit this jumbo pencil. So go on scribble on some fun!
