NYX Professional Makeup Suede Matte Lip Liner "Lavender And Lace"

Recently NYX Professional Makeup released a line called Suede Matte Lipstick, and with that came a matching line of lip pencils called Suede Matte Lip Liner to make it easy to find your shade match. The lip pencils are just like the amazing old school ones. It comes in a wooden pencil, totally weightless "dry" formula, not with that modern thick liquid lipstick-esque smudgeproof texture that cracks/flakes off. This is a great formula for delicate lip sketching that you can blend into perfection. I browsed through the line of lipsticks and pencils at the counter the other day and there are loads of cool shades, but weirdly I only fell for a cool toned neutral pencil this time. This is Lavender and Lace, a shade that NYX Professional Makeup themselves call a dusty rose, but I would say that it's more of a mauve with earthy taupe undertones. Mauve shades basically never suit me as the undertones aren't the best against my complexion, but this unusual earthy take makes it a lot more flattering on me, a great shade for balancing and sculpting my natural lip while keeping them cool toned. You KNOW this will be a go-to with a dark purple smokey eye! The lipstick in Lavender And Lace is slightly deeper in colour and did not look as delicate as the pencil, so I didn't go for them both with this one. Maybe with a darker shade? I'll definitely revisit this line, so we'll see. Available at Åhléns and KICKS in Sweden for around 50 SEK.
