NYX Cosmetics Slim Lip Pencil SPL835 Pinky Rose

NYX Pinky Rose is a bright candy pink matte lip liner. It is a bold color, uber pink. So if you are looking for a soft or subtle pink color, this is not the one for you. It feels creamy when you apply it and then sets to acquire a matte finish. The pigmentation is good. It is long wearing. I will be using this lip pencil with my MAC Candy Yum Yum Lipstick. I had swatched MAC Lip Liner called Shock Value and I felt Pinky was similar though not an exact dupe. This lip liner feels just a bit drying but overall I am quite happy with it. It is as good as some of the more expensive lip liners that I have used.

  • Very Pigmented
  • Long wearing
  • Good price point
  • Those who love bright colors will like this shade. It is a good lip liner for MAC’s popular lipstick Candy Yum Yum


  • I wish it was a retractable pencil. I will need to get a special sharpener for this slim pencil.
  • I haven’t sharpened it yet, but it looks soft and may crumble on sharpening
  • It is a bit drying on the lips.

    • That’s great! Its quite unbelievable that even though I’ve had it for quite some time now, I haven’t had to sharpen it! could be because I don’t wear bright pinks too often 🙂

  1. I agree with your “yays” but I use my pinky/rose with Revlon’s “Gentlemen Prefer Pink” Super Lustrous lipstick.
    Great Lipstick by the way.
    As for your “Nays”: I didn’t find the NYX liner drying on the lips.

    • Hi Kira, great to hear that the product doesn’t dry your lips. I could be an exception because I have dry skin and lips throughout the year.
