My Experience with NYX Slim Lip Pencil – Pinky:

Lip liners are essential, especially with creamy lipsticks as they tend to bleed a lot, but they can also be worn on their own or along with a lip gloss. NYX is very popular for its lip liners. The packaging is simple, black wooden pencil with a small tip of the lip pencil color at the base. It is slim and trim like the description and also long compared to other eyeliner and lip liners.  Storing it is slightly difficult because of the long shape.


The name “Pinky” sounds very cute and innocent, but the color itself is a very bold and hot shade and does not come anywhere near the name. It is a matte bright medium pink, looks slightly neon and leans towards fuchsia, also has warm undertones. It is a really bold shade, that will instantly brighten up the face and your mood as well, but it is not that easy to pull off, and with such a color, rest of the makeup has to be kept very simple. This shade is best suited for medium to dark skin tones, as it could look slightly harsh on very fair skin tones.  Dark skin beauties can carry this shade with ease as it has slightly warm undertones.


The pigmentation is superb; it gives opaque coverage in a single swipe and will work for pigmented lips as well.  The texture is good, it is soft and smooth and glides easily, without tugging. It is not overly soft or hard, just right, but make sure to prep your lips well.  Currently, my lips are slightly dry, so I cannot skip a lip balm underneath for smooth application. Lips have to be well exfoliated before application or else it will emphasize lines and look flaky.  Also, it does settle down in lines on the lips, but using a lip gloss on top solves all those problems. It is not at all drying and can be worn on its own. It stays well for 4-5 hours with meals after which it starts fading, it fades evenly and leaves behind a stain.


Without meals, it stays for good 5-6 hours, but also because this is a darker shade, it prevents lipsticks from bleeding and makes them last slightly longer. It does leave behind a stain and has to be removed completely with a good lip makeup remover.  It is available in 60 shades and you can find shades for your lipsticks which is great.


Its reasonably priced and you get a lot more product as it is quite long. Sharpening is not much of a problem, and it sharpens well with a good sharpener. In the swatches above, I have applied it on its own and below with a clear lip gloss.
