Hated this. Did not work for me at all. Hate the feeling, it tugs on your eyes. Doesn't last long, easily smuges and it does a bad job at lining my water liner. To top it off the liner got stuck and won't even come up anymore, so not completely useless. Maybe I'm the only one who doesn't like this product, but it did NOT work for me.
I really like this. It's very smooth and creamy, is well-pigmented, smudges out beautifully, works well on the waterline, and is inexpensive. I agree with other reviewers that it isn't particularly long-lasting (it will last for several hours, but not all day), but I like every other aspect of it so much that I don't mind re-applying it every once in awhile. I'll definitely keep buying this.
Love this eyeliner. Very creamy formula. Works really well for the water line. This has to be my favorite pencil liner!
I do not like this at all. Yes, it is cheap, but I think eyeliner is worth investing in. It tugs on the very delicate skin around my eyes and it smudges like crazy. It runs into my eyes very easily, making my eyes all red and painful. Never again.
I was actually quite impressed with how smooth this eye pencil was considering it is so cheap! It is very pigmented and easy to blend if you plan to smudge it out. Definitely one of the better drugstore eyeliners in this price range. I also picked up a dark brown and pearly white one. I did find it to fade about 4 to 5 hours later (i have oily lids). Overall, best drugstore non mechanical eyeliner.
This was my second NYX brand liner I purchased and really enjoy it. I have black liners in several different drugstore brands and high end brands. I tend to grab for my NYX one quite frequently even with all the others mixed in. I didn't give it a 5, though, because its staying power could be better. It doesn't fad overly quickly, but it also doesn't stay bold and vibrant after a handful of hours. I think it would be perfect if it were a transfer-proof, waterproof liner. HINT HINT NYX! haha! Will I purchase again? Sure will... its too good of a liner with too good a price not to.
I brought this on Cherryculture.com when NYX was having 50% off sale.
This black pencil eye pencil goes on incredibly smooth!
The color is a very deep dark black.
The texture is very creamy, almost as much as the jumbo NYX pencils.
The packaging is SO cute!
Long lasting color but the texture smudges fast (due to creaminess) quite a lot.
I like sharp bottom liner so I would rock this with a smokey eye instead.
Picked this up at Ulta, because I love the NYX line and I'm always looking for a good black pencil liner. I was very pleased with this purchase. It smudges well with a proper smudging brush and stays pretty well. It's not too hard and lines my waterline nicely. Would purchase again.
This is definitely one of my favorite eyeliner pencils. It's really good for getting down into the waterline. I have oily skin, especially in the summertime when it's hot but this pencil doesn't smear or smudge even after hours and hours of wear! It's very easy to build up the color and easy to remove so it really has everything I want in a pencil.
NYX is a great drugstore brand with a variety of nice colors and products. But this pencil is a swing and a miss. It stays true to its name, though: PENCIL. The consistency is truly like pencil lead...solid and sharp. You have to make an absolutely PERFECT line because the product doesn't smudge well and don't even think about getting this close to your waterline. Also, I'm allergic to it (what else is new, NYX?) so it physically hurts my eyes. I suggest that you do not invest (even though the price is appealing). Maybe get a nice kohl eyeliner from a different brand if you want a liner in the pencil form :)
