I wanted to love you NYX wonder pencil but you irritate...my eyes. I wanted a nude liner for brightening up my waterline. I bought the pencil in light (i am very fair) and I was so excited! I had heard such great reviews about this amazing product. I applied it to my waterline and liked the result...then the burning happened.(fyi I don't have particularly sensitive eyes) I thought there was something in my eye, looked in the mirror..nope...still burning and after awhile it stopped...ok...I tried using the pencil again...same thing...ie its gotta be the pencil. I went out and bought the rimmel scandeleyes in nude...No problems (and stayed longer in the waterline the the NYX pencil) I am keeping the woder pencil for lining my lips or maybe concealing but this thing is not going near my eyes again.
I'm an NC30 & I have it in medium, which is perfect if I want to brighten up my waterline without anyone knowing. I was thinking of buying dark but medium is definitely the way to go!! Looks so natural! :D Staying power isn't that great so a lippie reduced. But would definitely recommend if you want to brighten up the waterline!
I have this pencil in medium, and I have to say I do love it. I use it on my waterline and it makes my eyes look bigger and brighter, which is especially helpful on those early mornings where your eyes look tired and puffy. I also use this pencil in the inner corner of my eyes which also brightens up the eye. I don't use it as a concealer so I can't speak to that use. The only issue I have with this is that it fades pretty quickly from my waterline but I don't really expect anything to last for hours on my waterline.
Love this pencil I have it in light. I got it because I lost my Tarte one which was very similar actually this to me is a perfect dupe. Plus on top of that it works and is a very nice soft formula that stays on! Like other ladies were saying about watery eyes I have the same problem and this does hold up wonderfully. A lot longer than the Tarte one plus it comes in other colours and is so reasonable. I find besides highlighting you can use it on a spot and it covers perfectly! No caking at all and it lasts I always have this pencil in my MU bag and will continue because to me this bad boy is stellar. Totally Recommended!
A brilliant multi-use product! Yes, this can be used as a concealer or highlighter for very small areas, but I prefer to just use it on my bottom waterline only to make my eyes bigger and brighter.
I bought this in Light from Ulta in the USA, since NYX products are very expensive in the UK. I'd been looking at the very similar Benefit Eye Bright, but wanted to try something more affordable first..and I'm really glad I did! The pencil itself is soft and waxy, applying easily to even sensitive eyes, which is a novelty for me since most pencil liners feel so hard and scratchy.
The only negatives: since it's soft it does get used up very quickly. And since I get watery eyes due to allergies, it does migrate to my bottom lashes over the course of the day, but still holds up much better than other liners. The soft texture makes it easy to reapply during the day if needed.
Love this product for the price - I already bought 2 more!
This is a multi use pencil in my collection. I have light to light medium skin tone so I use the lightest shade. I have used it for very small light coverups, but mostly this pencil is great in the waterline and around the inner eye corners to naturally brighten instead of white.
I have VERY watery eyes at certain times due to allergies. I know some people said this was a bit waxy. For me I have found this to hold extreamly well in my waterline and also highlighing in the corners when I want a more natural look. As per another reviewer here, for the money I am going to invest in the other two shades and experiment with them as lip liners and eye liners to see if I can create some natural day looks. At 50+ I hate to have to wear makeup for casual times but if I don't I look aweful and these may due the trick to look natural, be quick and inexpensive investment. I'll let you know!!!
Awesome product, I am a highlighter for my browbone junkie. This wonderful pencil is inexpensive, works perfectly, blends well, the right color for me ( I have the light shade and I am NC15) I adore it. I use it in several places...the browbone, cupids bow, inner eye, etc will buy again and again and again
great,very creamy and smooth. I have i in light and use it for my eyes-to brighten and for waterline.
NC25 Chinese, yellow toned.
Creamier than Nars, too pink white glowy for my warm skin...sticking with Nars Rue Bonaparte for now.
HG HG HG. Searched for many years for a perfect, lighter than skin tone pencil for waterline, inner eyelid corners, under eyebrow highlight, etc. At last, my search for the grail endeth, and I am home. Pigment rich, super-blendable, and most importantly, completely matte, i.e. no shimmer of any kind. Plus it's inexpensive? Eureka!
