being in the beauty bizz, you would think my all time favourite eyeliner would be, mac, smashbox, or something else that is more on the expensive side. but nyx has shocked me! i bought this from a store near me for $4.95 australian dollar. and it is amazing, i have bought eyeliners that have costed me $30-60 and havent been half as good as this! its creamy, and it stays on all day on your lash line. it does stay well on your waterline and tighline, but not aswell. go out and buy this product!
This eyeliner is a great alternative if you want something cheap and good quality. My eyes get really watery at times and this eyeliner stays on! I use it on my upper lash line and my waterline and it stays on for along time. Its creamy and has very nice pigmentation.
Overall I LOVE this eyeliner and would defenitly buy it again:)
Pros: The pencil liner is soft, easy to work with, and well pigmented..
Cons: The liner doesn't stay on my upper lashline or my water line for much longer than 3 hours.. it smudges easily and because it's so soft, when you sharpen it you lose product.
The colour of this eyeliner is pigmented and intense, but what I find great about it is that it is best for smudging. You can smudge it and still retain the intense colour.
For this reason, I wouldn't use it on my waterline - only on my upper and lower lash lines, and it is my go-to eyeliner for this.
The staying power is decent - it won't totally rub away by the end of the day. In fact I find it smudges out nicely during the day to create a more natural look (if that makes sense!).
A complete mess. Imagine black dye in vaseline on a hot summer day.
This is a great, basic pencil. Not my favorite e/l, I tend to like gels/creams but nonetheless this is a nice eyeliner. It does not pull or drag at the eyelid. It is very creamy, but still firm enough to create a nice sharp point for a fine line. The pigment is excellent, very dark and doesn't need much pressure at all. It glides on easily. I usually pair it with NYX HD e/s base so I'm not sure how it wears on its own. It does seem to smudge a teeny bit after about 6 hours but it's not too noticeable. It doesn't last quite as long as my MAC fluidlines or PF gel e/l but the it's nice in a pinch and more convenient to travel with. This is 10x better than Cover Girl and NYC pencils and the pigmentation is much better than Revlon Colorstay.
For the price I would say this is not a bad eyeliner. When using a creamy/shimmery/frost eyeshadows this eyeliner tend to go on smoothly with minimal skipping and nice pigmentation. However, when I wear it along with matte eyeshadows it is difficult to apply as it becomes hard and lots of skipping with very little colour payout. Sometimes I like this eyeliner, some days not so much. I did notice that it doesn't fade right away or move like some of the eyeliners I've tried in the past but you do have to build it up. I can't say this is my HG for eyeliner I think I will have to keep looking. It's good as a backup though.
This eyeliner was no different from Crayola... It was hard but really pigmented. I couldn't line my eyes without jabbing my eyelid. A Wet N Wild 99 cent eyeliner I tried worked better. It wasn't even long lasting.
I bought this black eyeliner pencil because I had used this few years ago and I loved it.. the color is real dark, which is what I always look for in eyeliner pencils, and it's not too creamy or hard to apply. BUT... Idk if they've changed the formula or what, it's just not the same eyeliner I'd used before.. I was wearing it today and it started smudging under my eyes like dark circles literally right after I applied it. I stayed inside in cool temperature but still saw the liner coming off. I would not repurchase this again.
This is an awesome pencil for the price! It's really black, easy to work with and stays where I put it. Would repurchase!
