Hope you all are enjoying the pleasant weather these days due to the rains. I love lip liners and they are truly must have for me ,they make my lip colors last for longer and take care of my pigmented lips providing an even base to make lip colors appear more evenly and true to their color. Today I am sharing one of the most popular shade and my favorite lip liner pencil from NYX in the shade natural.
About NYX Lip Liner Pencil Natural:

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 Natural:
As the shade name suggest the color is truly natural and very versatile! It is a warm nude almost a light brown color with slight pink and peach undertones. Being a warm shade and due to the pink and peach undertones it has it does not look pale on my medium skin tone or wash me out. This is the one lip liner I have in my vanity which comes closest to my natural lip color, it is like my lips but better for me and hence works under almost all lip colors from neutrals to bright without altering the color. I like using it under sheer lip glosses as well. If you are not too fond of lip liners in general then I would highly recommend this shade since it goes with many lip colors.
The texture is just right in my opinion, they are not the creamiest lip liners I have used but the texture is not hard either. I always use a chap stick before application since it is not very creamy and on its own it feels drying. But on well prepped lips it glides smoothly without any tugging and has a matte finish and is almost smudge proof making it last for long .On moisturized lips it glides smoothly and does not settle into the creases on my lips much.
It is quite pigmented and does not need a lot of layering; in a few swipes it covers the pigmentation on my lips well. It sharpens nicely because the texture is not too soft. I don’t just line my lips with it and fill it in as a base. When used alone it lasts for a good 4 hours with minimal transferring, when paired with lipsticks it extends their wear time by a few hours.
What I like about NYX Lip Liner Pencil Natural:
- Neutral shade works with many lip colors.
- The texture is smooth.
- It is quite pigmented.
- Feels very lightweight on lips.
- Staying power is good.
- Does not transfer much.
What I don’t like about NYX Lip Liner Pencil Natural:
- Can be slightly drying and a lip balm cannot be skipped.
- Requires sharpening.
- Not all the shades are easily available in India.
Overall Verdict: I love this shade and reach for it often. They have a wide selection of colors and you are bound to find a color of your choice. Everyone must have a neutral lip liner that goes well with a lot of shades, and nyx lip liner pencil in natural is just perfect, I have already repurchased it and highly recommend it to everyone.
