CoverGirl Jumbo Gloss Balm Pencils in Berry Twist, Haute Pink - Photos, Review, Swatches

These new CoverGirl Jumbo Gloss Balm pencils caught my eye the other day at Target (I don't actually know when they were rolled out, but they're new to me!). I love chunky lip pencils so this purchase was a no-brainer, really. Here we go!

Here's Haute Pink, a cool, sheer pink -

These are touted as colored, moisturizing balms and, for the most part, they live up to that description. These CG jumbo pencils provide a sheer wash of color that is very fresh and easy-breezy to pull off; not overwhelming or loud, by any means! I should mention that Berry Twist is very similar to my natural lip color, so I don't see much of a difference. However, I'm sure it delivers a whisper of pigment based on Haute Pink - I can quite clearly see the subtly pink tint, so I know it works! On me, both Berry Twist and Haute Pink were only moderately moisturizing. I do have SUPER dry lips and usually have to use a heavy-duty balm to whip them into shape, so it's very possible that for the average person these balms would suffice.

Overall, a nice product! Very shiny, low maintenance, and great for summer! What do you think?

CoverGirl's Jumbo Gloss Balm Pencils are available at drugstores for around $6.99. You can also purchase online from drugstore.com.


  1. Those are cute shades. I really like chubby lip pencils, especially Revlon's. I'll have to keep my eyes out for these.

    1. I've yet to try Revlon's - but it's on my to do list! :)

  2. They look very similar in your pics, but both very pretty!

    1. Yeah, I think it's due to the pigmentation of my lips. They're quite distinct when swatches on skin!
