NYX Lip Pencils – Swatches and Review

I mentioned in my latest haul video that I picked up three NYX lip pencils whilst in the US. I had actually intended to buy more but the local Ulta didn’t stock the entire line, boo hoo. I had 8 shades to choose from, none of which were neutrals. I eventually settled on these three.

Dolly Pink, Rose, Flower

These were extremely cheap (around $3 I think). They are very pigmented and have a nice texture – not too dry or chalky but not too creamy that they might smudge. They won’t last all day on your lips but honestly neither do any of the other liners I own so this doesn’t put me off.

Dolly Pink, Rose, Flower

Here are some swatches to you can have a look at the finish and the shade. Bare in mind that these products are applied designed to be applied to lips (with more pigmentation) rather than hands :)


Top to bottom – Dolly Pink, Rose, Flower

The palest pink shade really isn’t for me, it reminds me of Pat Butcher when applied to the lips. That being said it would be a good base for a medium tones pink lipstick that you wanted to tone down. Rose is easy to wear and works with pink and plum lipstick shades. Fuschia is the prettiest of the three in my opinion.

I’m happy with my purchase and I’m definitely going to try some of the nudes, neutrals and plum tones next.

Any recommendations?
