NYX Professional Makeup’s Slim Lip Pencil: I’ve found a winner.

NYX Slim Lip Pencil is a creamy, long lasting lip liner that holds its own next to the cult favorite Lip Cheat by Charlotte Tilbury. The smooth consistency in application, the shaping power and concentrated color, and to top it off, the fade resistance. This affordable lip pencil is a drugstore golden gem. Let’s review NYX Slim Lip Pencil.

Promises vs. Performance: NYX Lip Pencil scores big.

NYX presents a handful of important claims about the Slim Lip Pencil on their website. It is promised to do just what I want my lip liner to do; no more, no less: “This buttery soft, long-wearing lip pencil formula goes on easily and resists bleeding.” It is also said to be long lasting and to glide best onto exfoliated, clean, dry lips, and to pair perfectly with other lip products, like NYX’s lipstick, lip gloss, and Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick. In particular, they recommend teaming it with their Suede Matte Lipstick.

My Review Thoughts: NYX Slim Lip Pencil

Honestly, I didn’t exfoliate my lips before trying this product, but that didn’t seem to hinder its great performance. Testing the shade Natural, I found the texture to be just soft enough to make application effortless, though it set quickly and securely. This product sealed any tiny, fine lines around my lips and created a smooth canvass for my lipstick.

How It Compares: Is there a better lip pencil for the price?

I’m so glad that my first introduction to NYX Professional Makeup was their Slim Lip Pencil. This bestselling product will be an MVP of any makeup collection. A winner of Allure‘s Best of Beauty Award, it has over 18,000 Amazon reviews and an average rating of 4.5 stars. The quality is incredible for just $4 a pencil, which allows the freedom to play with this impressive formula in its gorgeous array of nearly 40 shades. Its creamy texture and spreadability, along with its lengthy wear potential, might have you reaching past your high end pencils to grab this dependable favorite.

Milabu Beauty Method: Tips for applying lip liner to get a natural look.

The $4 NYX Slim Lip Pencil is a great option on any budget. Although it comes in close to 40 shades, I love Natural because it comes close to my own lip color. It’s the perfect base for defined, nude lips that are like mine but better.

  1. Start with a sharp pencil tip.
  2. Outline the top and bottom lips following your natural lip shape.
  3. For more opaque lipstick pigment and longer wear, fill the lips with the liner.
  4. Top the liner with your favorite pink or nude shade.
  5. Add gloss for a hint of shine.
