NYX Slim Lip Pencil in Nude Pink, Plush Red, Rose, Hot Pink and Bloom
I'm not sure why I'm only posting this now but I have this and been loving it for the past year. For me, price doesn't guarantee quality (ahemMACahem). I have experienced high-end products that doesn't deliver that much for its price and it's dupeable most of the time. The only lip pencil I had where the Nars' and Etude House which, for me, works terribly the same. So when I came across with NYX lipliners, I never came back.
(L-R: Bloom, Plush Red, Hot Pink, Rose and Nude Pink)
For Php100.00 a pop, you can never complain! They're pigmented, they stay and they stop the lipstick/gloss from bleeding serving their purpose. The pencils are hard in terms of texture but not waxy. It glides on smoothly and it's true to color. But it can be drying, so exfoliating the lips and prepping it with lipbalm is a must ... and something I didnt do. *yikes*
This is my favorite from the bunch! It's the perfect lip base for nude lipsticks. It's warm enough that it didn't wash me out. (NC35 for reference)
A milky kind of pink, a great base for pink lipsticks. Although I dont tend to use this that much because it's too cool for my taste.
The photo doesn't give justice on how bright this is! It's really such a bright pink, but not neonish. It's perfect for morena skintones.
If I have to pick among the 5, I will choose Nude Pink and this. It's a staple if you love wearing red lipsticks, it makes the wear so darn lasting. :)
Pardon the excessive pout. This lipliner is soooo pretty! I've been lemming for MAC Rebel for the longest time, but knowing that I wont wear it that much, I kindly pull myself out of it. Since I've been sad about that, I cannot count the times I wear this lipliner alone. I just love it. And I think this is the least dragging from the loot.
What I love:
- Inexpensive but still works
- Now available at online stores such as Digital Traincase
- A huge range of colors! 60 amazing colors.
- Easy to sharpen
What I dont like:
- Dragging and Drying. but you will expect this with lipliners. because it's their job to prevent feathering.
Will I repurchase? Definitely! I'm getting a backup of Nude Pink because it's nearing its death. :))
Thank you for reading. Till next time
