The NYX Jumbo Lip Pencil in Hera is a Fuchsia pink with purplish blue sparkles. It wears comfortably for about an hour then the sparkles really start to become irritating. I wore it on top of a lip liner and it started wearing off after about 2 hours. So this is definitely not a long wearing product. It wears similarly to a creamy lipstick so it becomes drying after prolong wear. Its not very moisturizing. Once it starts to wear off you will want to wipe off the product from your lips entirely. I do really like the color payoff. Its not too bright and its very wearable for daytime.
[REVIEW] NYX Jumbo Lip Pencil in Hera
I have really been diving into lip products lately. With summer I love wearing bright pink lips so I got the chance to try out some products from NYX lately and I picked out the NYX Jumbo Lip Pencil in Hera. The NYX Jumbo Lip pencils come in a variety of shades but the computer generated swatches are really not accurate! Hera looked like a softer pink but it works really well on my lips since they are naturally pigmented.

To Sum it up:
I'm really undecided about the formula. It applies really smoothly, its a hybrid of a lip color and lip liner which is great. It doesn't feather or bleed on my lips. It has a very creamy texture but the glitter is just too hard. Its such a gorgeous color and it does start to feel scratchy after an hour. With a darker color lip liner it adds a nice effect to the lips. Overall it is a great color but I would only wear this on a night out. For daytime I hate the residue it leaves behind, leaving your lips feeling really uncomfortable. I am sure it is just the chunky glitter so the other shades might be better to try out! If you love pinks this is the perfect subtle shade.
