I bought this marker along with the PF eye boost liquid eyeliner to try out. This marker is definitely more pigmented than the PF EB, however it's not very easy to work with. The marker brush is very stiff and doesn't "glide" onto the lid. Pigmentation is good, but i feel that it tugs at the eye lid so i have problems drawing a nice fluid line. Decent liner but wouldn't repurchase again $10. I would choose the PF EB in my opinion which is about the same price and the brush is definitely better to work with.

I absolutley LOVE this eyeliner!!! The other eyeliner I use is great and jet black, but too liquidy so that when I apply it, it gets all over my long upper lashes and I have to keep wiping it off them so that it doesn't dry and flake all over my face. The Nyx one does not do this at all. When you first apply, the line goes on black, but you have to go over it again to get it the darkness that you want. But what I do is I use the Nyx marker to draw the liner in and the shape that I want, then when I'm satisfied with that, I take my Almay liquid liner (the one that gets on my lashes) and wipe it off some, then make a little tiny wing, just about the length of my lashes, so that it looks natural. So instead of using the Almay over my whole lashline, i'm just making the wing with it, and it doesn't get on my lashes as bad. When I really want to get down toward the inner corner of my upper lashline, to make a full line across the lid, I use the Nyx marker, since I found out that it does not smudge or transfer to my lower lid. The Nyx lasts all day on me, no matter what I'm doing. Great staying power! This is a GREAT liner and i will keep buying forever!!

Marker wasn't the blackest black, I've got black eyes, it looks really weird when my iris are way blacker than the liner...call it subtle or whatever you want.it isn't my look and it is starting to dry out!I've used worst so this isn't that bad, tip was alright to dry on.

I'm very confused by the negative reviews on this product. I actually love and prefer this over most high-end and low-end liquid liners, including the Urban Decay 24/7 Waterproof liquid liner in Perversion. That product is COMPLETE. SHIT. I don't know if I just got a super old and dry one or what but...anyway. This product, NYX skinny marker, is lovely especially for people with a hard time making a good line with a liquid liner. Sometimes my hand shakes and I mess up with liquid, but this is so easy to apply and stays on the whole day. You can get the exact same effect with this as you would with a liquid liner. There's no creasing, smudging, and NO reapplication. :)

I would never buy this again, what a waste of money! It literally dried up in about a month. It wasn't that black to start off with. I've had other black liner pens for a year and they're still full of product and very black - I had to throw it out after a month because it was so dry. Plus the tip doesn't stay very sharp for long at all. Do not recommend, don't waste your money!

I like liquid liner over pencil liner. Although I use pencil first then trace over with my liquid liner. I like liquid pens over liner that you use the handle with the wand. I bought this because it's a decent price and it's a pen. I like how black it is. BUT it smudges and I think too much liquid comes out on a first swipe. I DO like that the felt tip doesn't scratch my skin. It;'s soft and stiff enough at the same time. I probably won't purchase this again as I'll continue to search for a liquid liner I love. I'll still purchase NYX cosmetics. I think their color range is pretty good. And the prices aren't bad.

I used the Fat Marker. The applicator was nice but the color was too sheer and it only lasted about 2 hours before it started to fade.

Hands down, this is the BEST liquid eyeliner I've ever used. I bought the fat one and it's the easiest application for liquid liner. My former favorite was L'oreal liner intense which is great, but this one by NYX surpasses it for ease of application. The color is very very black to me so I'm very surprised by some of the negative reviews except that maybe they bought one that was almost dried up. Unfortunately that can happen with liquid liners if they are not sealed properly during packaging and shipping. I find this eyeliner to be just as intense of black as any other.

The packaging is pretty basic. It's essentially like a marker where the handle is easy to use and stable to make a line. The applicator is a felt tip where it dispenses the product. The tip is quite fine, much more fine that most felt tip liners and it is really easy to make a clean thin line.
THE WORST PRODUCT EVER. The product is so incredibly sheer that it makes a faint line across the lashline. It is not sheer such that you can build it up to make it dark, it would take hours to even make a relatively visible line! The product is really terrible. The other aspects of the product itself is not worth mentioning because I can barely get out any product.
I had assumed that it may just be my item that sucked but my friend experienced the same dilemma. I am not sure whether the felt tip or the product itself is the problem but this was a very low quality product which is why it is not even worth the money.
I would definitely not repurchase.

LOVE these! I'm pretty clumsy when it comes to applying liquid liner which is why a pen REALLY appealed to me after trying to use numerous different wands and brushes over the years and having very little progress in my skill :P Very opaque and I have both sizes so I can get a super fine line or something a bit thicker. Highly recommended!

I am normally not a big fan of liquid eyeliner, preferring gel, but I love, love, love this! I bought it after watching a youtube video recommending it and I am so glad that I did. It stays on quite well, and it lasts.

I purchased this because the skinny variety is perfect for carefully plotting the parameters of a winged or cat eye look. It doesn't dry too quickly, so mistakes are easy to correct. While the formula is pretty thin and not nearly black enough for me (I am anal retentive when it comes to my crisp black line) it does dispense much more evenly than other felt tip liners I've tried. After blueprinting my eye with this pen I go over it with my Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel. It has saved me a lot of do-overs!

I purchased this to get my by until I found something more permanent. It was cheap to purchase so I thought whats to lose. I purchased the Super Skinny Marker and I have been very pleased with the overall product so far. Up to this point I have very few complaints. The pen style is very user friendly and the tip produces a very consistent dark line.
The product itself has fairly good wear-ability so long as your eyes don't get wet or teary or rubbed.
Overall I was happy with the ease of use and quality provided with this eyeliner and do plan on repurchasing

I got the fat marker because the skinny seemed to have less favorable reviews overall (Not sure why they didn't make a double-ended marker: one side skinny and one side fat. That seems like a great idea, but I guess it would make less money). Just tried it for the first time this morning. I never really use liquid liner, and I thought it was easier to use with the marker (rather than a brush). It will take a little practice to be able to get the line the right thickness and also straight without any wobble marks. However, the product itself went on very dark black, smooth and had a glossy finish, which surprised me (in a good way) for a marker (however, the glossiness didn't last after it dried).
Updating: Have found this to be far less pigmented after a month, have to go over the line a few times to make it show up right, therefore the lines end up wobbly. Pen is already drying out. I would no longer recommend this.

The Super Skinny Maker is an easy to use eyeliner, felt tip pen design. The shortcomings of this product is that the liner goes on quite sheer. I had to go over my top liner multiple times for good color payoff. The ELF felt tip eyeliner is much, much, better.

I'm reviewing the super skinny marker. This has a good felt tip point, and the marker is easy to work with. The liner goes on nice and opaque black, and is pretty easy to draw with. Another perk is that it dries fast, unlike a lot of drugstore liners that smudge while you're waiting for them to dry. Not a replacement for my best gel liner, but a good on the go option for my purse.
EDIT 11/3/11: I have now just tried out the BIG marker! I love it! You can still get reasonably thin lines with it, and it's easy to work with for such a big tip! The black is opaque and juicy and I love it!.

I got the skinny marker on a complete whim because I thought I should try a new liquid liner. All other liquid liners I've used have been difficult to use (which might be my fault...) but the pen format of this seemed to have possibilities. Thankfully, it's worked out great!! It's forgiving enough for me to use and gives a dark, black, precise line. A must have for me!!

I had been eyeing the skinny marker for a while, but literally every time I go into Ulta it is sold out. I finally settled on the fat marker and I loooove it. I want to get the skinny marker as well because it's harder to wing out your liner. Anyways, it is packaged much like a real marker. It goes on nice and dark. I tested it on my hand before buying it and I ran it under the sink later and it barely budged. It had great staying power on me, but judging from other reviews that might not be the case for everyone. I wore it to a wedding and reception in humid Tennessee weather and it stayed put all night. However, it does smudge if you rub your eyes or sweat a bit. Overall it's my favorite liner in pen form so far and I definitely would repurchase.

Alright, so I'm reviewing the "Super Fat Eye Marker"...
I had been struggling to find a really great liquid eyeliner for quite some time (my Revlon liquid eyeliner just wasn't doing the job), and all the brands I wish to try are from Japan and Korea. I came across Nyx's brand while shopping with a friend and was amused with the name of the product and decided to try it out (hehe).
At first I was going to purchase the "skinny" marker, but saw that all the fat markers had basically sold out, and I impulsively grabbed the last one. Sometimes you've gotta listen to what the masses are saying! ;)
Anyway, went home and tried it out the next morning in my usual makeup routine. I struggled at first with the bulkiness of the pen (it IS the "fat" one...) but once I got the hang of it I was able to make the perfect cat eye effect for my eyes. The felt tip feels precise and firm, and with a little bit of practice you could even make a thin line, if you like a more toned down cat eye look. I feel like this is why the "fat" marker has an advantage over the "skinny" marker pen, since you'd have to go over your lines to make them thicker (which is a waste of time).
I found it best works when you tilt the pen so the tip is directly applying the product. This is the only thing I really have to get accustomed to, since I am usually lazy and run the whole side along my eye, rather than JUST the tip.
The packaging isn't anything special, but for the price I'm very pleased with this product, and until I find something better I will continue with this particular item. :)

Im review the Nyx Super Skinny Eye Marker.
After running out of my E.L.F Eye Marker, I couldn't find it in target in months! It's my HG eyeliner! Dirt cheap too! but sadly I had to go find another eye marker, I been using a Maybelline gel eyeliner, it's good, but I prefer a marker, becuase it's easier for me to tight line my eye. So after months like literally! I was in an Ulta store (My first time in Ulta), I felt like in make up paradise! lol, anyway was browsing through a lot of brands and came upon this marker, they had the samples I liked the skinny better because I tend to draw thin lines not big fat ones. After using it for a week I have to say its really good! Its much easier for me to draw my lines! I hear a lot of negative reviews for this one, but I cant find a con in this one well maybe two, One the price was $8.99 which i thought wow so expensive!, Second is when I laugh a lot just some of it smudge onto my outer corner of my eye, but I don't mind about that, cause every eyeliner does that to me.
