Review & Swatchfest: NYX Slim Lip Pencil in Coral, Pinky, Purple Rain, Bloom

From left to right: Coral, Purple Rain, Pinky, Bloom
After finding a my-lips-but-better color from the last batch of NYX pencils I reviewed and swatched, I thought I would try to boost the population of my Spring/Summer brights. The best part is that at such a reasonable price (and an additional 40% off), there was some serious room to try a few shades.

At $3.50 a pencil, these won't be the smoothest or creamiest products to hit your lips. But, the color payoff is great and they provide good, relatively long lasting coverage. I get about 3 hours of wear - 4 hours if you don't count minor wearing in the lip center from eating & drinking. And, when worn under lipsticks, I notice the lipstick lasting longer. When worn alone, they aren't moisturizing. But, then again, they don't claim to be. Unfortunately, I haven't tried MAC lipliners, so I don't have a point of comparison, but I do know that for an inexpensive lip liner, they far exceeded my expectations and are an excellent way to add an affordable pop of door to your Spring & Summer makeup.

Coral: An orange-heavy coral (rather than pink)

Purple Rain: Deep orchid purple

Pinky: Pink that's slightly deeper that bubble gum pink

Bloom: a purple leaning, berry pink
