NYX Slide On Lip Pencils: Swatches & Favorites!

Hey everybody!

You may keep in mind a couple of month in the past I did a video about drugstore lip merchandise price making an attempt. In it, I raved about these NYX Slide On lip pencils. (The complete title is technically “Slide On, Glide On, Keep On & Positively a Flip On Waterproof, Excessive Shade Lip Liner… LOL.) The NYX Slide On Eyeliners have been round for fairly a while, and I completely love them and have usually in contrast them to the City Decay 24/7 liners when it comes to shade choice and endurance. So when NYX not too long ago despatched me the total line of Slide On LIP Liners… I used to be SO EXCITED. They promote for $7.99 every at Ulta, and for my part, they’re the very best lip pencils NYX has ever launched (and plenty of of their older ones are fairly darn good!) They go on tremendous creamy, they’re extremely long-wearing, do not drift exterior the lips into high-quality traces, and I am actually happy with the shade choice! So I wished to indicate you some swatches on this put up, in addition to my private favorites! (Be at liberty to enlarge any photographs for a better look.)

Left to proper: Nude Suede Footwear, Sugar Glass, Bedrose, Candy Pink, Fluorescent, Disco Pink, Pink Cantaloupe, Rosey Sundown, Summer season Tease, Crimson Tape, Brick Home, Darkish Soul, Nebula

FYI: All of those shades are matte with one exception- the intense pink referred to as Fluorescent, which has a little bit of a pearly sheen. Whereas these could make nice liners within the conventional sense of outlining your lips and filling them in with a coordinating lipstick, I actually suppose they’re superior for filling in the complete lip space as properly. They apply so easily, after which they undoubtedly set for long-wear. You are actually going to need to attempt exhausting to smudge them! However one thing else to concentrate on, and I’ve stated this with reference to many of the long-wearing liquid lipsticks hitting the market… whenever you add moisture, you re-liquify the product considerably, which might trigger some switch. So in case you intend to high these with a gloss, or in case you instantly apply them over a lip balm, you’ll discover that they’ll switch off a bit extra simply. Nonetheless a long-wearing product and may improve the wear and tear of varied glosses and lipsticks… however simply not as 100% set as they might be when worn alone. 

My most popular utility would contain exfoliating and moisturizing my lips after I first begin making use of my makeup- after which apply my lip liner on the finish when my lips have had an opportunity to actually “absorb” that moisture. An alternative choice can be to easily blot the balm off to remove extra moisture earlier than making use of the liner (if you would like essentially the most long-wearing impact). 

The Neutrals: Nude Suede Footwear, Sugar Glass, City Cafe 

The Pinks: Bedrose, Candy Pink, Fluorescent, Disco Pink

The Corals/Reds: Pink Cantaloupe, Rosey Sundown, Summer season Tease, Crimson Tape

The Darks: Brick Home, Darkish Soul, Nebula

My favorites!

  • Nude Suede Footwear (high left): An superior cool, barely pinky nude. Seems attractive alone however can enhance the endurance of so many nude lipsticks and glosses. 
  • Sugar Glass (high heart): Near Nude Suede Footwear, however as you may see much more clearly within the swatch photos, this shade has extra heat. 
  • City Cafe (high proper): I will admit I’ve by no means worn this one alone throughout my lips like I did for this image, however I not too long ago realized that I LOVE the way it seems over a purple to create a reasonably ombre impact! I am carrying it that manner on this video. 
  • Rosey Sundown (backside left): I really like this vibrant, pinky purple… I am fairly certain I haven’t got another liners on this shade. 
  • Brick Home (backside heart): Beautiful alone, but additionally a pleasant technique to deepen up any purple lipsticks which are too vibrant. I really like an excellent matte purple that will not budge!
  • Darkish Soul (backside proper): A deep berry purple that appears so vampy by itself, but additionally makes a pleasant companion for different berry-toned lipsticks. 

I might’ve loved swatches ALL 14 liners for you, however truthfully, as I took each off (with Bioderma), my lip line turned an increasing number of sloppy and it is simply actually powerful with these lengthy carrying merchandise! However my backside line… you may’t miss with this liner method. Should you’re on the lookout for a brand new lip liner, I might completely advocate this vary. And despite the fact that they’re conventional pencils that DO require sharpening… I actually do not thoughts! That is saying loads, coming from this retractable pencil lover!
