Red Alert! -NYX Slim Lip Pencil in Hot Red 817 review and swatches

Earlier this week I decided to channel my mother and rock a seriously red lip. In order to pull off the most traffic stopping red I could come up with I decided to reach for my new NYX Slim Lip Pencil in Hot Red.NYX Slim Lip Pencil in Hot Red review


According to NYX these lip pencils are “long-wearing and buttery.” I think I will be the judge of that.

I lined AND filled in my lips with the lip pencil. The application was smooth and easy. No problems there. After completely filling in my lip with lip pencil I sometimes notice it can be a bit drying. In a positive turn of events, this was not the case for Hot Red. My lips didn’t feel as wonderfully creamy as a rich gloss or as smooth and luscious as a soft lipstick, but they felt pretty dang good.

I topped the look off with Very Cherry Lipstick from Maybelline. All together I got about five hours of really good wear and another two hours of so-so wear.  Those are pretty good stats for a lip product in my book.

This lip pencil is totally a keeper and has officially made its way into my travel makeup bag. Wahoo!
