Today, i'm going to do a review on one of such products. When i was shopping on amazon.com, i saw the NYX slim lipliner pencils and loved the way they were photographed. So to buy or not to buy? I decided to go ahead and read reviews. There were quite a number of great reviews, so naturally i assumed that the pencils were as great as they all said.....and i eagerly bought them *sobs uncontrollably*.
Fast forward a couple of weeks later, i opened my beautiful lip liner pencils which looked as good as they looked on the amazon site. I tried to use one of them and "WHAAAAAT!" It was a chalky mess! See me see nsogbu (wahala).
|Don't be decieved by how pigmented they look. I had to rub each one a lot for it to show that way.|
First, i had to apply pressure and rub and rub to make the color show.
Secondly, they came out chalky....they didn't glide or apply smoothly at all
|And they look good.|
From the left, you have 835 Pinky, 846 Tangerine, 839 Dolly Pink, 840 Rose, 841 Coral and 824 Orange. The swatches above are in the same order.
I just hate lip or eyeliner pencils that aren't creamy and don't glide. The packaging was cute, i really liked the way they looked. If only they were creamy and smooth....oh well! I went back and read the reviews again, and i wondered if mine was just from a batch gone wrong. How come other people had good things to say about them?
Would i buy again? Haff i madt? NO WAY! I'm happy with my Zaron lip liners ooo jare! You can buy them if you want sha....who knows, you just might be lucky.
