NYX Slim Lip Pencil in 817 Hot Red Review & Swatches

By Thursday, July 30, 2015 , , , , , , , , , , ,

Hello Everyone,
Today I am reviewing NYX Slim Lip Pencil in 817 Hot Red. I picked up this lip pencil in my last haul here. I have already reviewed Bloom here and if you have read that post than you know that I really liked that one. Hot Red is from the same line so the formula wise they are same. Let's see how this one fares out.

Product Description - 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.

Price – 3.50 USD

Packaging – Packaging is simple nothing fancy. Black glossy wooden pencil with a colour coded bottom.

Performance – NYX slim lip pencil in 817 Hot Red is a perfect bright slightly bluish red. These lip pencils are creamy and smooth yet firm. They just glide on your lips without tugging or pulling of any sorts. They are quite forgiving even if you have dry lips. Does not accentuate lip lines. Very pigmented and the opacity of these is such that they can cover pigmented or discoloured lips. Staying power of this is amazing as well. It easily last for 5 -6 hours on me with snacking and drinking, fades slightly after a meal and might need slight touch up. I love wearing it on it own or over a lip balm; I like applying a gloss on top of it. It goes great with all red lipsticks.

The Good:

  • Creamy and smooth
  • Very pigmented
  • Does not settle into fine lines
  • Very affordable
  • Huge shade range
  • Covers pigmented or discoloured lips
  • Doesn’t dry out your lips
The Bad:

  • None as such
Beautiful shade, smooth texture, great staying power and really affordable. What’s not to love? I recommend these to each and everyone. Definitely try these out. I am surely getting more of these.
