REVIEW: NYX long lip pencil in coffee [vs NYX slim lip pencil in natural] swatches!!

I have had this NYX lip liner in coffee for a while now, I got this for free on a promotional offer because I exceeded £5 from a particular ebay seller, Angel's Beauty Bag.

Anyways, I chose this shade which is L3 Long Lip Pencil #Coffee. and I thought it was going to be lighter than  the Slim Lip Pencil in Natural.

But uhm.. yes, I'll let the photos do the talking on that.

 Clearly, you get much more product out of the Long Lip Pencils. But it does NOT beat my favourite lip liner. a.k.a. NYX slim lip pencil in natural.


The formula of the NYX long lip pencil is also a bit of a meh. It's much harder to blend, a bit cakey.. I don't know.. I didn't really like it that much to be honest and I'm sticking to the slim lip pencil to be honest.
I am not sure whether it's all NYX long lip pencils or just this ones. But i do know that the slim lip pencils are a bit of a hit and miss too.. with regards to texture. 

Oh well. There's no repurchase here. But hopefully this grows on me :)

  2. I got the red one from the same seller and I actually quite like it. I like to fill my lips in with it after lining them so the colour lasts longer. Try applying a little lip balm underneath for a smoother finish :) xx
