NYX Slim Lip Liner Pencil – Citrine Review

Hello ladies,

After the long gap, I am back 🙂 I am going to review a lip liner for you all today. I got this NYX lip liner in the shade Citrine from the USA and as you know NYX products are cheaper in the states than in India, so I bought some as gifts also and this particular shade, I gave to my mom. So, some time back when I met my mom, I used this lip liner too and here I am to review this for all of you.

My Experience with NYX Slim Lip Liner Pencil Citrine:

Unlike many other lip liners I have used till date, this lip liner is very creamy in texture. Even when applied on dry or bare lips, it glides effortlessly.  The shade Citrine is a pearly mauve pink, which looks move mauve on my slightly pigmented lips. It does not have any visible glitter particles in it, but it gives a pearly finish which is not over the top shiny.

However, I prefer matte lips over anything else, so this pearly finish is not very great for me. It is a very understated pink which is good for everyday wear and can work well underneath light pink and mauve lipsticks. I generally wear it all over my lips and as this has pearly finish, a lip gloss is not required on top.

It has a decent staying power of 2 hours after which it fades living sliver + pink tint behind. It is not a twist up pencil, so every time I sharpen, some product gets wasted. It does not come with a sharpener but works with any ordinary sharpener.  At this price, this is sa great product, but this particular shade is not something which flatters my skin tone.
