My Take on NYX Lip Liner in Shade 802 Brown:

For every day looks, I wear corals or pinks or burgundy shades of lip color; however, because of my pigmented lips, every color looks odd hence it is imperative that I wear a lip liner underneath to camouflage the darkness and get an even-toned canvas to work with.

Packaging: it looks just like MAC lip liner except the writings on it says NYX instead of MAC. It is a sharpenable pencil and leads to wastage of product each time.

Texture: Unlike MAC lip liners, these are not as creamy or smooth to apply but I still love it because the shade is pretty, it gives a good coverage and we all can agree that most of us love NYX lip products.

Color: Pale pink shade with neutral undertones – I thought this shade might not look good on me but fortunately it does and goes really well with the smokey eye look.

Pigmentation: I won’t say that pigmentation is over the top awesome but is still good enough. It can perform better if paired with a right kind of lip balm underneath otherwise the job gets a little tedious as the liner tugs on the lips and gives a patchy finish. It would have given better color pay off if it had creamier, buttery texture and also application would have been better.

Shimmer and shine: No shimmer and shine; it gives a matt finish.

Wear time: Once applied, it does stay put and also prolongs wear time of lipstick. However, after meals one might need to do a little touch up but otherwise it makes even a regular lipstick stay for an entire day. I have also used it as is, with touch of lip gloss and I got a good wear time out of it.
