Review : NYX Retractable Lip Liner (Natural & Nude)

Ola Babes!

Today i'm gonna show you girls some great lip liners from NYX. NYX recently came out with some lip liners which are the NYX Retractable Lip Liners. These lip liners obviously comes in a retractable plastic pen-like thing. Usually i would not be drawn towards these kind of retractable lip liners coz i always feel like i'm getting lesser products. That's why i always prefer wooden lip pencils and eyeliners. However, what attracted me was the fact that these retractable lip liners claims to be waterproof. I mean, who doesn't like long lasting lip pencils? Imagine wearing a red lipstick and it doesn't even budge even when you eat or drink? That's like a major plus point for me. Hence, i bought 2 of the lip liners.

I got the NYX Retractable Lip Liners in the shade Nude and Natural. I usually always buy natural coloured lip liners coz most of the time i'm using a nude lipstick or a natural looking lipstick. So i thought i'd pick up those shades. Natural is more of a slightly warm nude brown. Whereas the shade nude is a slightly pale pinky beige colour. Both the lip liners are creamy but not too creamy like the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On pencils. These feels like the Estee Lauder Double Wear Lip Liners. Only way way wayyyyyy cheaper in price.

These are the swatches of both the NYX Retractable Lip Liners in Nude and Natural. Nude is on the left and Natural is on the right.

So whether or not they are waterproof? My verdict is, YES, they are. They are waterproof. However, if you are eating greasy food and all, the lip liner does fade off. It is very long lasting too compared to all the other lip liners i've used before. So i definitely like it. Especially for those days where you are going to be out the whole day and you probably don't have time to keep on touch up your makeup! It lasts a good 8 hours on my lips. It also definitely makes the lipstick last longer too if you fill your lips with the lip liners before applying the lipstick.

The NYX Retractable Lip Liners are retailed at RM 19. They are so inexpensive that i want them in all shades and colours! Imagine having amazing long lasting lip liners for only RM 19? That's a steal if you ask me! Compared to Estee Lauder and MAC lip pencils these are so cheap! No doubt that the MAC and the Estee Lauder lip pencils are amazing too but for the price, they better be! This is one of the reason i love NYX cosmetics. They have amazing products at such an affordable price.

My rating for the NYX Retractable Lip Liners are 9/10 :) Do let me know your thoughts on this lip liners if you have used them.

Till the next post then!

I love you all <3
