My Experience with NYX Slim Lip Pencil Hot Deep Red
‘Deep Red’ is a gorgeous red color with slight deeper hues. It is a cool toned red that flatters my NC 35 skin tone beautifully. In the pictures it looks Brick -red, but it is really a true cool toned red. The color is so beautiful; it instantly makes my skin look bright. The pigmentation is really good too. You can easily fill in your lips and top it off with some balm or gloss and you are ready to go! That’s how I like to wear this lip pencil. I think any lipstick would steal its beautiful color unless it’s an exact match.
This lip pencil isn’t super smooth and creamy unlike my Lakme 9-to-5 Red alert lip liner. But it isn’t too harsh on your lips either. It goes on nicely without tugging or pulling. The tip is strong enough not to melt or blunt in humid weathers or break if you apply a little extra pressure. It doesn’t moisturize the lips neither does it strip your lips off the moisture once you have removed it. Also it settles to a satin-matte finish and feels very light on the lips.This lip liner stays for a good amount of 5 hours and survives light meals. It also leaves a cute stain behind when it fades.
Now moving onto product summary.
