NYX Slim Lipliner Pencil in Hot Red

Hey dears!

Happy Mom's day in advance to all the mothers out there! We celebrated this day today since my mom will be off to London early in the morning tomorrow. She'll be having a two-week vacation there with my aunt. I'm a bit jealous because I want to travel as well, especially to a European country. But it's okay... someday I will get to do that once I'm more financially stable and independent. Haha! But going back to my mom, I really think she deserves it because my mom is such a hard-working woman. She raised all three of us alone for 20 years now. But enough of this for now, more about our mom's day on tomorrow's post. For now, I'll share a quick beauty swatch about...

NYX Slim Lipliner Pencil in Hot Red
This is probably around Php 250-300.00.

Got this product from the Sample Room Inspire Goodie Bag.

I was happy that I got the Hot Red shade because I do not own one yet and I happen to own many red lipsticks. But I actually don't use lip liners because I do think my lips is... well-shaped? Or already defined? I find that lipstick application is very easy for me to do.

Here's some description from the website:

Slim, trim but never prim, our lip pencils come in a variety of dashing shades—from auburn to orange and traffic-stopping red. The buttery, long-wearing lip liner formula goes on easily and resists bleeding.

Sorbitan Isostearate, Isocetyl Stearate,Phenyl Trimethicone, Polyethylene, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax,Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) Unsaponifiables, Beeswax, SimmondsiaChinensis (Jojoba) seed oil, Caprylic/Capri Triglyceride, Nylon-12,Octyldodecanol, Polyglyceryl-2 Diisostearate, Silica, CoperniciaCerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Hydrogenated, Coconut Oil, Tocopherol,VP/Hexadecene Copolymer, Stearalkonium Hectorite, StearylGlycyrrhetinate, Propylparaben, Prolylene Carbonate

A swatch on my hand

I really like how pigmented this is. I believe most of the lipliners from NYX are this pigmented. Just like most of their lipsticks!

Here's how I lined my lips with it.
Obviously, I am not that well-practiced with lining my lips. Haha! Like I said, I don't use lip liners. :P But besides the great, bold color, this product is very smooth and creamy which makes it glide easily on my lips.

Though it's a good lip liner, I think it is even better when you fill your lips with this or make it act as a matte lipstick. Check out my lips on the photos below:

See how great they are when you fill the lips with the liner? It's quite long-lasting too. Unfortunately, they can be a bit drying.

Here are some FOTD photos of me wearing it as a lippie:

So what do you think of this product? Do you like NYX lipliner pencils? Do you use lipliners? :)



  1. Oh my, it looks soooo good on you! I almost never wear a red lip but I realize now how good and polished it can look! Totally need to put on a red lippie soon! That' lovely that your mom's going on holiday! I would love to go to europe for holiday too! But I need to save money!

  2. It took me a while before I realized how great a red lippie is. Now it's a must that I bring one along with me everyday! :D
