NYX Ombre Lip Duo Review

Total honesty here…I was expecting to hate the NYX Ombre Lip Duo in Peaches & Cream. I got it as part of the Summer 2016 Kandee Johnson Beauty Con Box.

This product looks super orange on the box and while I imagined my 17-year-old Boy George loving self might like it I didn’t think my 2016 self would want to wear it out of the house. But…I was kind of wrong.

What’s to love?

This lip pencil has two ends. A dark orange thin liner and a thicker lighter orange side for the middle of your lips. Application is a breeze, the product is really nice and smooth. However after you line your lips with the dark orange you kind of look like a clown. It’s not until you fill in the center with the gold and blend that you get the final look which has a semi-matte finish.

I was pleasantly surprised with the final result. It actually looks pretty good although I’m not a huge fan of orange lipstick. I would like to try a wine or pink color next.

I was also totally impressed that this product was Made in the USA and had very low odor. This is my first time trying anything from NYX and I’d like to try more. The lip pencil costs $12 and it’s definitely worth it.

Small tip – Make sure you twist the pencil down before you cap it. I squished mine a little and had to do some surgery. Happy to report that it survived.
