Review: NYX Slim Lip Pencil - Coral, Hot Pink, Nude Pink, Deep Red

Best Blogger Tips

Pardon my being MIA for the past weeks. Beginning late October upto the third week of November, I had been terribly busy preparing for our company's participation in  PHILCONSTRUCT 2011 two weeks ago. I was finally able to have a breather from all the stress this week, which explains why i am finally able to blog! Yehey!

About a month ago I had a major NYX haul at NYX Wholesale PH. Their prices are incredible low, so i obviously went crazy online shopping for some lippies, liners, etc. For only P95 a piece, who can resist these NYX lip pencils? These pencils come in over 60 colors and in different finishes - satin, matte, frost, etc. I got 4 colors: Coral, Hot Pink, Nude Pink, and Deep Red. 

L-R: Coral, Hot Pink, Nude Pink, Deep Red

L-R (w/ flash): Coral, Hot Pink, Nude Pink, Deep Red
L-R (w/o flash): Coral, Hot Pink, Nude Pink, Deep Red

I super love these pencils! They're really creamy, glides easily on the lips, color payoff is really good, lasts long, and best of all, they're really cheap - only P95.00! 

Coral is a true coral peachy color. Surprisingly though, this wasn't as creamy as the 3 other colors. The color payoff is great though, and i can wear this as a lip liner, or all over the entire lip. Just top off with a corally or nude lipgloss and it'll look great. As this color and formula is a bit drying, make sure to put on lip balm first. 

Hot Pink is well, a true bright, hot pink shade. This is really creamy, and glides like a dream on my lips. The color payoff is really good so you can wear this alone. 

Nude Pink is a gorgeous light pinky brown shade! This is great to use when you do not have any lipliner to match a certain lipstick shade. It's very versatile. Color payoff is average. This is not as creamy as Hot Pink and Deep Red though. 

Deep Red is a true deep dark red. Great to match with deep red lipsticks. This, or any red lip liner, should be a staple in every girl's kikay kit. To properly pull off red lips, it is a must to use a lip liner. Great color payoff too and creamy so i sometimes wear this alone. 

What the Label Says

Slim, trim but never prim, our lip pencils come in 60 dashing shades—from auburn to orange and traffic-stopping red. The buttery, long-wearing lip liner formula goes on easily and resists bleeding. Available in 60 shades.
