Nyx Retractable Lip liner MPL16 Plum

Hey Everyone!
Hope you all are well :)

This is my fourth and last review as part of the Nyx Vlogger of the Month.
 I hope you all have found the reviews and tutorials helpful so far!
Today I have a lip liner review for you all :)
When it comes to lips I love anything from nicely nudes to very dark plums that appear almost black on the lips. 
I'm a sucker for a vampy lip!...see what I did there? ;)

I was torn between this gorgeous plum lip liner and the bold black liner.
In the end I decided I would get more use out of the plum lip liner, I find a black eye liner works well on the lips so I have no need for a black lip liner.

I love the fact that the lip liner is retractable.
 When it comes to pairing lip liners and eye liners it kills me how much product is wasted in the pairings. 
To the extent that I have actually started to depot some of my liners such as the jumbo pencils from Nyx. Its quite easily done and you really are getting the best value for your money I find!

As you can see from the swatch above the liner is very pigmented. 
The other thing I noticed was that the swatch on the website and the swatch that I did myself were basically identical. I was so delighted that the swatch on the website was as true to life as could be because that is not always the case with swatches on companies websites.
Bravo Nyx!

And finally here is what the liner looks like on the lips. 
Currently my lips are quite dry due to the fantastic Irish weather, so I always opt for a lipstick which is quite moisturising to apply over top opposed to a matte lipstick. A matte lipstick will tend to sink into every crack and crevice in your lips and unfortunately emphasise the dryness even more.
For the purpose of the review I just have the lip liner on my lips in the picture above :)
I have been using a matte eyeshadow in a similar colour to the lip liner opposed to a lipstick over the liner. Personally I have found that it actually lasts longer than your average lipstick, that maybe one to try out lades and gents!

This lip liner retails at just £4.00 and can be purchased from
Yet again, we have another bargain buy :)

Thanks for tuning in everyone!
Talk soon,

  1. Attempt Kiss My Face Organic Lip Balm and say goodbye to dry and dried lips until the end of time! Nyx

  2. If you're looking for volume in your lips or cheeks, consider lip fillers in Lahore instead of traditional methods like lip implants or cheek implants. Dermal fillers are much cheaper and easier than traditional methods—and celebrities such as Kim Kardashian have made them popular.

  3. As skin whitening is considered to be the perfect skin in Asia, people always are in search of good skin whitening cream. Most of the creams in the market are just a waste of money as they are just designed to earn not to serve. These creams make your skin irritated and radish instead of benefiting you. Of course, skin whitening ingredients are not as much as these creams are.
    Yet there are some medicated best skin whitening cream in Pakistan that are specially designed for Asian skin and based on scientific research. To whiten your skin, always use medicated skin whitening cream.
