After trying the full range of Non Transfer Lip Colors from Blue Heaven cosmetics, I really wanted to try some more products from the brand. So, I bought the full collection of their Xpression Lip Color Pencils which I have already swatched. Today I’ll be sharing a detailed review of ‘Blue Heaven Xpression Lip Color Pencil 03’ which is the pink shade from the collection.
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
Blue Heaven Xpression Lip Color Pencils come in a weird golden brown looking pencil with a transparent lid. The transparent lid does give it a plus point as the color can be recognized without actually opening the lid. But, the way it looks and the not so tight lid, makes it look cheap. I can’t really complain about the packaging much as the pencil only costs 75 bucks and for this price, nothing too fancy can be expected.
Though I really wished that the lid was at least tight enough to make the pencil safe to carry in the bag.The lid is very loose and it tends to come off only with the effect of gravity. All you have to do is invert the pencil and the lid comes off. The pencil comes with a sharpener of its own which is always a plus. The sharpener is packed with the pencil in the original blister pack.
My Experience with Blue Heaven Xpression Lip Color Pencil 03:
After trying ‘Blue Heaven Xpression Lip Color Pencil 01‘, I was really disappointed with the product, but as I had all the shades to try, I went ahead and tried the safest shade 03, which is the pink of the collection. Thankfully, this is much better than the other one I tried.
The shade 03 is a fuschia pink color, which is a decently good color for everyday use. Some ladies might find the color a little too bright for everyday use, but if used as a lip pencil only, 03 can go well with a variety of pink lipsticks from many other brands.The color is decently pigmented, one layer might be enough to get the color, but I personally like to use at least 2 layers of the product.
I am not someone who only lines their lips with a lip pencil, I like to cover my entire lip with the lip pencil before applying the actual lipstick, but this particular formula might not be the best for this purpose. The formula on these lip pencils is a bit drying and might bother some ladies if used without a lip balm underneath.
Staying power of the product is not amazing, but 03 does stay a little longer than some other shades from the collection.
Overall I won’t say that I am impressed with the product. But this particular shade, considering the price is not a bad purchase.
