Last month I swatched all the 6 shades of Blue Heaven Xpression Lip Color Pencils. Today, after using the pencils, I am here to share my experience with ‘Blue Heaven Xpression Lip Color Pencil 01’. These lip pencils are super affordable, but are they good enough? Read out the review to find.
Price: INR 75 for 2.5 g (BUY HERE)
I bought these lip pencils a couple of months back when they were priced Rs 60. The brand seems to have increased their prices.

Mentioned on the back of the packaging
These Xpression Lip Pencils come in a golden colored pencil with a transparent cap. The packaging of the pencil, as well as the not so tight cap, make it a cheap looking product. The pencil is not safe to travel with as the cap tends to fall with the lightest pressure. Yes, the pencil does come with a free sharpener which is packed with the pencil in the original blister packaging.
My Experience with Blue Heaven Xpression Lip Color Pencil 01:
Color: Shade number 01 from Blue Heaven’s Xpression Lip Color Pencil is a pinky red-colored lip product which is easy to use by almost anyone and for any occasion.
Pigmentation: The shade is decently pigmented, one swipe is decent enough to get an opaque color onto the lips.
Texture: The formula of these lip pencils is super drying. Though, yes, these are supposed to be used to line the lips, but I usually fill my entire lip with the pencil first before applying a regular lipstick and this product does not seem to be meant for that.
Staying Power: This is another area where the lip pencil fails miserably. The pencil cannot withstand even a light snack, forget a full meal.
I do like the fact that these lip pencils are affordable, but the flimsy pencil cap and not so amazing formula, makes this product a no for me.
