Former (or current) MAC lover? Put down that “Spice” nude pencil immediately! Not only are you buying a product from a line that is animal tested in China, but you are severely overpaying, my friends. If you are a makeup snob and only want products made in Europe, you are in luck here! The NYX Slim Lip Pencil is made in Germany by Schwan-Stabilo, which also makes MAC’s pencils–surprise! I personally stock my kit with a lot of products from NYX, but the lip pencils have become sort of an obsession.
