Nyx "Hot Red" Lipliner Pencil: Review & Swatches

Since these lipliners are super affordable and when they were 40% off I knew I had to at least try one. I have quite a few lip liners now but I didn't have a true blue toned red....
"HOT RED" is the shade name.
It is a wooden lip liner so it isn't the smoothest and it is quite dry. 
Even in the swatch you can see it is slightly patchy but on the lips (without a balm) it just looks awful. 
It does however really define the lips. 
  • You MUST wear a balm underneath this even if you have exfoliated and don't have chapped lips
  • Makes the lips feel drier and the wood part just isn't pleasing when I apply it
  • I way prefer retractable lipliners ( plus you don't have to sharpen them)
