NYX Slim Lip Pencil - Natural - #SPL810
The Slim Lip Pencil buttery, long-wearing lip liner formula goes on easily and resists bleeding.
I've gone through two of these. It's almost perfect but the color is a touch too brown for me. It leans neutral-warm and I have really pigmented, cool, almost-berry lips, so the tones kinda clash but it doesn't turn orange so lots of points there. Gonna give it a 5 anyway because it goes with almost any lipstick that's even remotely in the same shade category, makes lips look luscious, is opaque, creamy enough to glide over lips but not so creamy that it affects lasting power, easy to sharpen, and the price is RIGHT. The NYX Slim pencils are definitely the best in this price range. And in higher price ranges for the most part. I love a nice old-fashioned wooden pencil I can sharpen, I think the product inside is almost always superior and I like to huff the scent of wood shavings.
Great lip liner very close to my natural lip color. Gives a nice subtle definition without being too showy. Can be used with lots of looks, very versatile. I like lining and slightly filling in my lips and adding a light gloss for a nice neutral look (currently using wet 'n' wild lip gloss in Rose Gold)
I bought this liner out of desperation because the one I've been using (I don't even know what it is; got it at TJ Maxx a million years ago) is getting down to the base. I just needed a basic neutral liner, which seems easy but we all know it ain't. The number one issue is everything turns orange on me. The second, is I like the precision of an actual pencil but has to be creamy, obvs. So I got this, figuring it's not expensive and better than nothing. I love it! Much better than I expected, because it's much better than most. Creamy yet holds a point. The color is natural but visible. And not orange! At all! Goes well under virtually any shade of lip color. Phew.
On me this is a light brown shade, not too light not too dark. I wear it under my lipsticks but I noticed it's ideal for all my nude lipsticks. I never wear lip liner on its own. It stays put and helps my lipsticks last longer and it's very affordable. Definitely a win for me.
I use this almost everyday, it is a perfect shade for me. It matches my natural lip colour flawlessly, and I use it to over line my lips for a fuller look since my lips are on the slimmer side. I wear it alone or under a lipstick such as NYX whipped caviar. The only downside is that it can leave your lips slightly dry and you have to go over it a couple of times to get the colour to show. Overall I would definitely repurchase this, I am a huge fan of matte, nude lips and this helps me achieve them.
