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:
Define Lips with beautiful color that lasts throughout the day.
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.
