The slim lip pencils are one of NYX best-sellers and at only £3 each I thought I’d give them a go. I wasn’t expecting much from a £3 pencil and was pleasantly surprised. Read on to find out why.

Sales blurb:
NYX’s most popular lip pencil. Formulated with the highest ingredients. This pencil provides colour with a creamy smooth application. It does not bleed and has a long lasting wear.

+ great colour payoff as these are just as highly pigmented as the Jumbo Lip Pencils.

+ creamy formula glides onto lips leaving a smooth finish that doesn’t dry lips. This is true for all shades I’ve tried, except the black shade (see below).

+ amazing range of 60 shades! There is genuinely something for everyone.

+ price is a huge bonus as they are as high quality as MAC pencils but so much cheaper

black lip pencil is very dry and not creamy enough for lips. It is very drying and doesn’t glide on smoothly like the other pencils do. I bought this to play around with some two-tone looks but it’s too dry. I will probably use my Gosh or Sleek eyeliner or a creamy brow pencil instead. Disappointing given that I was so impressed by the other colours in the range.


Yay or nay
YAY! I was so impressed by these pencils. I wasn’t expecting much from a £3 lip pencil but these are amazing quality for such a budget buy. I will be buying more shades very very soon.

Nay if you want a creamy black lip pencil. Use a Gosh or Sleek eyeliner instead.

If it’s colour you want, then you can’t go wrong with these.
