NYX Slim Lip Pencil in Natural and Hot Red review
I am an avid user of lip liners and have many of them from high end to drugstore brands.
They are great as a base for your lipstick or lipgloss or even by themselves they give a nice matte lipstick effect. They also make your lipstick last longer. My favorite brand for lip liners is NYX slim lip liner pencils (Rs 295) so far. They have a great range-60 shades. Many beauty bloggers have stated that it is almost as good as Mac lip liners. I will be reviewing the ever popular Natural and Hot Red shade.
As mentioned on the website:
Sorbitan Isostearate, Isocetyl Stearate, Phenyl Trimethicone, Polyethylene, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) Unsaponifiables, Beeswax, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) seed oil, Caprylic/Capri Triglyceride, Nylon-12, Octyldodecanol, Polyglyceryl-2 Diisostearate, Silica, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Hydrogenated Coconut Oil, Tocopherol, VP/Hexadecene Copolymer, Stearalkonium Hectorite, Stearyl Glycyrrhetinate,Propylparaben, Prolylene Carbonate.
Natural is a very popular lip liner shade and probably the one I use the most. It looks lovely with any color over top or just a pink gloss. It’s neutral and goes with most of my warm lipstick/lip gloss shades.
Hot Red is a nice cool toned red lip liner , which depending on the layers you put on, is actually very wearable. It is almost a pink shade when applied with a light hand. I actually wanted a more darker shade of red, so I don’t think the color lives up to its name of being ”Hot Red”.
They are just the right amount of creamy, long-lasting and not drying at all. I love their simple packaging and the cap fits smugly.
To sum it up-
Pros of NYX Slim Lip Liner Pencil
- Great color range
- Great quality(in fact I like it better compared to my Estee Lauder and Smashbox lipliners).
- Natural considered a dupe for MAC spice lipliner by some.
- Great matte effect for a velvety lip look if used by itself.
- Natural is a good color for a neutral lip to compliment a smokey eye look.
- Hot Red is great as a base for pinks,reds and maroon lipstick shades.
- Opaque enough to camouflage any natural lip colour imperfections.
- Great price compared to brands like MAC and Estee Lauder.
- Not drying at all.
Cons of NYX Slim Lip Liner Pencil
- The swatches on the website are horrible.
- Natural might be a bit lighter for Indian women who have very pigmented lips.
I would definitely recommend it to anyone. I personally think they are just as good, if not better, than MAC liners. Very creamy but stay on surprisingly long. It is soft and blend-able in terms of color. Also I found that if I use a light brown lipliner and then use a warm pink gloss over it, it gives anyone a perfect MLBB shade.
