Review : NYX Lipliner Pencil '843 Citrine'

I rarely apply lip products, except for lip balms (and tinted ones). Don't get me wrong, I love lipsticks and lip glosses, but sometimes, I just can't stand the taste and stickiness of it. I wanted a precise, fast and non sticky or greasy lip color for everyday use.

So, I bought my first lip liner from NYX a couple of weeks ago. Technically, it's not my FIRST ever lip liner, but it is the first since my last one in high school. Here is my review on it. 

NYX Lipliner Pencil '843 Citrine'

Slim, trim but never prim, our lip pencils come in 60 dashing shades—from auburn to orange and traffic-stopping red. The buttery, long-wearing lip liner formula goes on easily and resists bleeding. Available in 60 shades.

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

How I Use It

I draw on the edges of my lips and filling them in within the lines.

What I Like About It
It's available in most NYX counters (although, probably more expensive compared to online shops)
The price is affordable, starting at Rp 30,000 (I bought mine at an online shop)
The packaging is a common pencil with a cap on the end
The size is travel friendly because it will fit in most makeup bags
This line has a variety of 60 different shades! 0.o''
It's easy to use. All I have to do is draw and fill in my lips
The color payoff is great because I don't need to tug back and forth to get the color out
It has a creamy texture, hence it doesn't dry out my lips
If I don't eat or drink, this can stay up to 5 hours on my lips

What I Hate About It
☹ It needs to be sharpened after a few uses. I often lose my sharpener, so that's a problem 


Top : Bare lips, Bottom : NYX Citrine

Overall, this is one of my favorite lip products, aside from tinted lipbalms. It gives my lips a healthy tint without the drying it out. The color is suitable for everyday use on my lips because it is the type of color that looks natural.

I would recommend this to :

  • Someone who won't mind drawing precise lines
  • Someone who wants a moisturizing lip liner
  • Someone who won't mind sharpening it over and over
