My Thoughts: I'm pretty sure there isn't a thing that NYX Cosmetics makes that I don't love. Now granted, I haven't tried everything, but pretty much everything that I have tried has impressed me with its quality for the price. They are a really good value for someone who is looking to build a kit but cannot invest in all high end products, someone just starting out in wearing makeup, or people who want to try out a new trend without blowing their paycheck every time they find a new photo to "pin". If I'd known about them in college, there would have been fewer nights eating Ramen noodles or Kraft mac n' cheese, that's for sure.
These lip liner pencils are a good quality for the price. They do glide nicely, remain true to their color (which does match the paint on the end of the pencil pretty well), and are decent in the lasting category. I'm habitual with reapplying lip gloss, so I found that it ended up melting into the gloss pretty quickly and disappearing faster than if I'd just been using it under a coordinating lipstick. Kudos to them for a cheap liner that doesn't feather! Which, really, is the key thing here. At least from my professional opinion.
Final Verdict: For the price, these are a great value. I like that there are a bunch of shades, so I can stock up on matching liners without breaking the bank.
