I am quite fond of lip liners, they not only make my lip colors last for longer but also take care of my pigmented lips providing an even base. I have a lip pencil from NYX today, they are so popular and often compared to Mac lip pencils as well, let’s have a look at this one.
About NYX Lip Liner Pencil:
Classic, best-selling NYX lip pencil. Creamy formula glides on smoothly and blends easily.
Provides long-lasting wear that does not feather or bleed. Contains Coconut Oils to hydrate and condition. Works perfectly with any NYX lipstick or gloss. Available in 60 shades.
Price: $3.49 or INR 295
Packaging: The lip liner comes in a simple wooden black pencil with a cap that shuts tight and has to be sharpened. The color of the shade is marked at the end of the pencil, which makes it easier to select if one has more than one of these pencils.
My Take on NYX Lip Liner Pencil Nude Pink:
As the shade name suggest the color is exactly the same. It is a medium nude color and has lot of pink tones to it , the color is very neutral not too cool toned or warm toned, and I like the fact that it has no mauve toned to it like many other lip liners in similar shades. It is a slightly lighter color for most Indian skin tones and may wash them out easily. But I love this color it works with most of my lipsticks since it is so close to my natural lips, just a tad bit lighter and is completely matte.
I have tried other lip pencils from them and they were all quite smooth and creamy. Whereas this one is not hard but is not that creamy as well and I find it drying to use alone so lips need to be well prepped before application. Also if you have quite dry lips naturally then exfoliating them will help or else it will cling to dry patches. On moisturized lips it glides smoothly and does not settle into the creases on my lips much.
I am also disappointed with this shade in terms of pigmentation, it is not as pigmented as their other pencils and does not cover the pigmentation on my lips in a single swipe, but I have to go over a few times. It sharpens nicely because the texture is not too soft. When used as it over some clear lip balm it stayed for around 3 hours with minimal transferring since it is a lighter shade, it prolongs the wear of lipsticks as well.
What I like about NYX Lip Liner Pencil Nude Pink:
- I love the shade it works with many lip colors.
- The texture is smooth.
- Works well with layering and feels light.
- Staying power is decent.
- Price is really good.
What I don’t like about NYX Lip Liner Pencil Nude Pink:
- Can be slightly drying especially if you have dry lips.
- Texture is not as good as their other lip pencils.
- Not as pigmented either and needs layering.
- Not all the shades are still available in India.
I like this shade a lot but the pigmentation and texture are certainly not the best and needs a bit of layering to provide an even base, if you don’t mind that then this is definitely worth a try for the color it is.
