NYX Lipliner Pencils: Swatches/Review

NYX Lip Pencils

Let me start this bit by saying I don’t judge you, so you better not even think of judging me, and my lip liner whoredom….capiche? Good! Let’s move on!  I cannot stop buying these pencils, and NYX lip pencils are some awesome lil suckers….yessur….yesssur….they are!  Most people compare them to MAC, but I won’t, well simply because I don’t own any MAC pencils. Thanks to a YT subbie of mine I have a few swatches of some MAC pencils:)

NYX has been doing the job for me for many years, even in my black liner, unblended on the lips years :). These little creamy goodness sent from lip heaven are awesome, and some of the best lip liners I own! There’s no need for anyone to rush out and buy the most expensive liners, because most liners are created equally, and can be easily duplicated (remember I said most not all).

These pencils come in a variety of finishes also.  There are matte, frost, satin, and cream finishes. NYX carries over 50 shades of pencils, and is always adding new shades to the bunch. There are also two versions available, long/short.  The long version of the pencils is about 8″ long with 2g/.08 oz of product, while the shorter version is about 6″ long with 1g/.04 oz of product(hey, I’m scratching my head too) The price ranges from $1-$3.50, depending on where you get it, and the size of the pencil.  I also have pencils that says made in Germany, and a few that says made in France.  I was told by a friend that the newer pencils are made in Germany and the older ones in France, well *Küsse* from my international lips…lol! 

 I’ll be showing the swatches in groups of: Browns, Pinks, Berries/Reds:

(L) is for the long version of the pencil/Underlined shades are actually eye/brow pencils, I use these to darken or tone down certain lipsticks I wear.

Guest Swatcher: MAC Lip Pencils


Why I love NYX Lipliners? They are:

  • Very affordable
  • Soft & creamy
  • Easily accessible
  • Long wearing
  • Easy to blend, but doesn’t smudge after lipstick application
  • Available in many colors
  • Very pigmented
  • Available in many finishes
  • I could go on forever….But I won’t:)

 What I’m Not Feeling About These?

  • The online color swatches SUCKS!!!….uhmmm, yea…….that’s it!

 You can find these pencils at most local Beauty Supply Stores(BSS) or online at NYX  ulta , cherryculture or ebay.  But shop around, because the prices vary!

    I love NYX products as well and I absolutely love the lip pencils. Can you do some more swatches for NYX’s verses Mac like you did with purple rain.

    I heard about NYX a while ago but only recently tried their lip liners and round lipsticks and I’m LOVING THEM!! The lip liners are fantastic. Round lipsticks are pretty drying on me, but using a balm underneath helps to work that out.
