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.

- I could go on forever….But I won’t:)
What I’m Not Feeling About These?
