NYX Sale – Lip Liner

I had a little too much fun at ULTA today, NYX is on BOGO and I have been waiting for the sale to purchase a few lip liners. I don’t wear lip liner and in fact did not own a single one until today! Unfortunately, they were super picked over and I only manage to find 4 that I thought would work under a few shades of lippies. UlTA was a mad-house, I felt like I was constantly in someone’s way and couldn’t really get in the display to dig and find everything that I wanted. I will share my other pick-ups later in the week 🙂


I picked up Life’s a Beach, Mauve, Tea & Cookies and San Paulo from the Suede Matte Lip Liner collection. Yes, they are all pinks and nudes but I feel that this makes them pretty universal and I will get a lot of wear out of them. These liners don’t promise to do anything amazing and honestly, I don’t need them to – I just want them to help my lips stay on a little better and help me with a more precise application. That isn’t too much to ask, is it? I have only tried the mauve so far but it did glide on very creamy and only took one coat to achieve a nice, opaque base. The matte black tubes are cute too, I wish they had more colours! I may have to go to another store to see if I can pick up a few more. For $3.49 they are definitely worth the gamble especially since I absolutely refuse to pay more the $10 for a lip pencil – just a personal preference. I mean, I just cannot get amped up over a lip liner but it did feel very sophisticated putting it on 😀


I am going to wear one tomorrow for work and see if they stand the test of time, updates to come! Thanks for stopping by ❤

  1. Oooo these are part of the Suede line! Will you be showing swatches? I would love to see it! I like Nyx but for lip liners, my all time favorite are colourpop. The colourpop lip pencils are super creamy and can be worn on its own, but its at $5 each so your nyx purchase was definitely more affordable!

    1. They are! Yea, I will definitely post some swatches up. I’m planning on a few posts from the sale and will include swatches. I’ve not tried Colourpop but these are such a steal, I hope they’re great – I’ll keep you posted!!

  2. Ulta is also having all their clearance items marked down an extra 50% off! My local Ulta was getting rid of the brand Pallido – so I got 9 lip / eyeliners for only $1.96!!!!! I freaked out!!!
