I use the white in the inner corner of my eye only and i love it. I think it's a soft texture that's not cakey, for me it stayed on fine! I think it's really nice for daytime wear, as its not too thick or strong! At night time it probably wouldnt stand out though.

I only bought the Baby pink shade as an eye brightener. It actually works pretty well. It's not as creamy as Stila's apricot liner, but that just makes it much better because it does not transfer to your bottom eyelashes.

I love NYX products but of the ones I've tried, their Slim Eye Pencils are probably my least favorite. While they are very cheap and tempting to collect in every one of their colors, I think I prefer their creamier pencils including the Jumbo Eye Pencil and their Retractable Waterproof Pencil for the ease of application, since it hardly takes any effort at all to get some serious color pay-off. This isn't always the same for their Slim Eye Pencils. I have bought a range of colors including whites, purples, yellows and greens, and recently obtained a black one for the heck of it; I notice that there is a lot of inconsistency in formulation (some colors are far softer/more pigmented than others). It's a shame, because they have a huge range of colors compared to most affordable brands, but some of the formulas can be so stiff that they're not comfortable to apply without trying to poke your eye out. However, I have found a little work-around this in that warming the pencils somehow prior to applying seems to help with the stiffness/pigmentation problem I have had with these. Try leaving the pencils next to heating hair-styling tools, and then applying them.

I picked this up at Ulta the other day because I was looking for a brown pencil liner that didn't cost a ton. I have the UD 24/7 pencil in black and brown but since they're so soft and need to be sharpened frequently, I figured I'd need a replacement soon. These were only around $3 so I got one in brown. I wanted a subtle eyeliner that's semi-soft and doesn't smear all over.

This pencil glides on pretty easily but it's not super soft like a kohl pencil. The color is a perfect shade of brown. It makes my eyes look natural with a slight enhancement. These are great for the price and I will repurchase in the future.

I have this in black and while it isn't the blackest black I've ever seen, it's still really decent and for the price you really can't complain. I find that it can smudge under my eyes, but honestly I haven't yet found an eye liner that doesn't, so it's not a big deal to me. The product itself is quite smooth to apple and isn't overly hard or soft - a happy medium. It lasts pretty well on my eyes, not the longest lasting, but a lot better than other eyeliners I've tried and this is much cheaper.

I have a few of these (Silver, Emerald, Sapphire) to name a few. The color payoff is excellent, but on my oily lids, these do not last very long. Even with a primer, the outer corner and tear duct areas start to run after a couple of hours.

I love these! They are inexpensive, last all day, good colour pay off and they don't smudge.

I enjoy this eyeliner fairly well. It glides on smoothly and has very good color pay off. I've tested the lasting power on my hand and it faded a bit, but on the eye it stays fairly well. I LOVE the NYX slim eye pencil in 24 karat, against my warm skintone, this pencil looks amazing underneath the lower lashline, it makes my brown eyes pop, attracts light to my eyes, and doesn't look crazy. Totally will recommend.

why have i been spending 15 to 20 dollars on eye liner? these are sooooo great and cost about 3 dollars. they come in every color you could ask for and i have 12 of them. they glide on smoothly, are very pigmented and stay on all day. they work very well as a shadow base as well. i highly recommend these and they are cruelty free.

I love these eyeliners. I have three: Satin Blue, Black, and Black Brown. They're the eyeliners that I just instinctively will reach for. These pencils glide on so easily but aren't too creamy. The packaging is also great. My favorite part about these is that they only cost $3 and I barely ever have to sharpen them because they last so long. They don't smudge or run down my face (even in the heat!). They also last a pretty long time on the waterline. I think these are definitely my HG eyeliners!

EDIT: I thought these were amazing before, but I got a little emotional today and started crying. This liner stayed completely in place! Didn't run down my face at all! I know they're not advertised as waterproof, but in my opinion they definitely are!
