NYX Slim Lip Pencil - Dolly Pink - #SPL839
Bright Barbie Pink
The Slim Lip Pencil buttery, long-wearing lip liner formula goes on easily and resists bleeding.
This is my HG lip liner, the one I reach for time and time again. It's got a dry texture to it, yet doesn't tug when applying. I find that this texture makes it stay on for hours, and helps give my lipstick something to grip onto, extending the wear of it as well. On top of using it for my pink lippies I use this for nude shades as well, because nudes usually tend to wash me out, and the pink helps give a little contrast between my lips and my face.
I really like NYX's Megashine line, but used to bypass this shade because it looked so bright and "out there" in the tube. However, after trying it on, I realized that this is a really versatile shade of cool pink. The color can be super bright and more of a night-time look only if you put alot on, i.e. a full swipe. I found that if I simply dot a little on, it will give me the most natural-looking pop of pink, in a "my lips but better" sort of way, which I can wear any time of the day. This is a great color for someone with cool skin tone, and can be used to create different looks, depending on how you use it. Beautiful shade!
I was in a pinch to find a bright pink liner to work with my MAC Pink Nouveau. The SA at Ulta was a lifesaver when she suggested this liner.Bright blue based pink. Smooth application, does not tag on lips. Wears well under all my MAC lippies I use it with: Pink Nouveau and Candy Yum Yumm.Will be buying NYX lip liners in the future, great product awesome price.Update: now I use this with my YSL lingerie pink as well.
I saw a NYX cosmetics display at CVS a couple weeks ago, and this color looked so fun and fresh, so naturally a lip gloss fanatic like me just had to buy it. The gloss smells like cherries and is fairly pigmented. Make sure your lips are moisturized and free of dead skins before applying this. As long as your lips are nice and smooth, this gloss glides on easily and looks bright and pretty. So good for summer! I liked this lip gloss and I think I might buy some more colors. If you're looking for a sheer gloss, this isn't the one. However, if you're looking for a bright pop of pink, I would recommend this to you! The best part is that this is really affordable too.
I finally found my perfect Barbie pink. I love how pigmented this gloss is, it gives my lips some what of a stain when it has worn and it looks great with my light skin tone. I feel like this gloss is a total underdog product, everyone raves about the butter lipglosses/ balm/ lip sticks and ignores the Mega Shine Lipglosses. It has such adorable packaging too, I love the bow that is on top of the applicator, what a cute detail. Will be r epurchasing!
