I don’t know how I ever lived my life without lip liners! I rarely apply my lipstick without a lip liner underneath. Lip liners help the lipstick wear longer and helps prevent feathering and bleeding. Whenever I need a new lip liner the first place brand I think of is NYX. NYX lip liners are amazing! They’re pretty great quality and very affordable.

I started off with just a few pink lip liners but after trying them out I had to get even more because I love them so much! NYX Slim lip liner pencils are very pigmented, smooth and creamy. I don’t have any issues with dragging or tugging while applying and they don’t feel too drying even though they’re mostly matte. Even with a thick balm underneath I still have no problems applying them. These pencils make great bases for MAC lipsticks! The finish always looks much better and wear a little longer whenever I use one of these liners underneath. They also look great alone! Some days I just fill in my lips, throw on some gloss and go. It’s very versatile! I love that they’re such great quality because they’re soo cheap! I usually pick mine up from Ulta for just $3.50 but they’re often on sale or I use a $3.50 off $10.00 coupon to get one free! I have a pretty decent collection so far but I plan on getting more soon because they’re so wonderful. I honestly can’t find one bad thing to say about them Check out the swatches!
