NYX pencil lip liners are my absolute favourite. affordable yet so smooth, pigmented, and very long-lasting! also love supporting a cruelty-free brand. i see in previous reviews that there's a lot of confusion/disappointment regarding how one should sharpen them. the slide on lip pencils are not retractable, but rather have a plastic casing as opposed to the conventional wooden lip pencil. i heard NYX sells a sharpener specifically made for this purpose but i personally use the wet 'n' wild dual pencil sharpener and it works just fine (: hope this helps! NYX lip pencils will forever be my go-to!
I bought the shade SLLP24 "Knock em Red" online. When I read other comments saying they don't know how to sharpen their lip pencil I thought they were dumb. Well, it just happened to me! I cannot sharpen mine. I cannot twist it up either because it's not made to be a twist-up. There is no way to sharpen because it's made out of plastic. I have another shade in SLLP02 "Bedrose" that I purchased about a year ago and I'm able to sharpen it. Please view the photos I included. "Knock em Red" is a true red. Appears long lasting. I haven't worn it yet besides swatching on my hand. I was too flabbergasted by the defect to try it on my lips before the review. I dislike the hassles of returning/exchanging. I just wanted to let other buyers out there to be aware if they are on same boat as me. You are not dumb! It's defective.

I bought the shade black brown and it's the perfect shade alternative to black and it isn't too brown. I used it once and knew I'd found the perfect shade so I ordered another one. It's a real wooden pencil, not that weird plastic-wood junk that's hard to sharpen. Sharpens easily to a fine point. Applies easily and lasts well.

Love this pencil. Not too shiny, not too mat. Nice color. Goes on easily and stays on.

The white has no pigmentation it seems. I apply it to the waterline and it isn't there. It doesn't build up, just smudges what little applies. It also straight up disappears if you manage to get some on. Won't be buying again.

I got this in the shade dark brown as I wanted a more casual daily use liner that wasn't as bold as liquid liners. This definitely met that expectation. However, buyer beware: this liner wipes away with the lightest touch. The application was alright, but I do wish the texture was more creamy so it could glide on. There is definitely some tugging with this formula.
I wouldn't buy again, but this isn't horrible either for the price.

I love these lip liners but they no longer carry the color nude pink. I tried bedrose but it was too pink. Exchanged for allure which I liked. Allure is more of a neutral nude.

I was so looking forward to using the baby blue color for a change in look I was going for but was immediately disappointed. It was practically nonexistent when I would add it to my waterline. I tried it out on the back of my hand to see if it possibly needed a sturdier base to get the color going, but it wiped off so easily! The color looked so promising but the formula is just not it. Def returning and will not be repurchasing.

Feels great applying to lips! Looks great with Matte lipsticks, gloss or alone.

I was very disappointed with this product. I was told by an Ulta sales associate that I was buying a retractable lip liner. So obviously I thought that as soon as the lip liner product was finished, I'd be able to bring up more lip liner product, by twisting the bottom of the lip liner, and try to push up more of the lip liner product to come out. I assumed retractable means to push in and out. Well, I twisted the bottom of the lip liner and no more lip product came out! I spent 8 dollars for only a tiny piece of lip liner product? I will never buy this product again. I wanted to go back to Ulta and tell them I wanted my money back, but somehow, I lost my receipt.

I tried, as well as my daughters, to use this item. The actual liner does not advance up from tub making this product useless and a waste of money.

I love the color. The ease with which the liner went in with was a amazing. I was sweating a lot while wearing it the first time and it didn't go anywhere.

Used this for years, glides on easily & looks great

The pencil is great- creamy and smooth and easy to use. But the color Bedrose on the website looks like a nude brown but when I got it in person it's a bright pink :/ have to exchange.

My go to color is bedrose and I absolutely love it! I have repurchased it and have purchased other colors! Give it a shot :)

It is hard to apply because it is not soft and it's not noticeable either.
Patsy from Dallas, TX
I use as a liner and fill in the entire lips
Rocket from Oregon
It goes on really smooth and the pigment stands out

I've tried them all. Looking for the perfect.nude that's not too pink or grey. They always end up too brown. This one is perfect. Stays in place 6 hrs plus.

Was disappointed with coverage and color.

If I am onstage, I wear blue reader contacts. Wearing just the right blue in a liner pencil, really pops the blue contacts! The blue in this pencil looks great in both natural day wear looks, or night wear and stage looks. It actually makes the white in my eyes look whiter. It has become my "neutral" look. I get compliments all the time, on the color of my eye make-up.
Paige from Slc
Honestly bummed I got it. Will not purchase again

Whether it's eye or lip pencils, NYX's quality is amazing and affordable.

I use this to outline my eyes. It smudges.
Mel from NY
my favorite lip liner!!! I love the color and how creamy it is. I gave 4 stars because sometimes it's annoying when it pricks my lips and have to use the sharpener all the time.

Flakes off of the lips and smears. But once it's on your mouth it stays. It's waterproof and doesn't budge
