NYX Long Pencil Eye Lilas

Hello beautiful ladies,

Today I will be sharing with you one of my funky colored eye pencils from NYX. I do have some products from NYX and I really like this brand, I want to try their round lipsticks but the colors I want are always sold out. Till date, I have only had a chance to try one of their round lipsticks in Sky pink. Anyways, coming to the present product, the product I will be talking about is one of their eye pencils. NYX have some different types of pencils and the one I have is called long pencil eye. It comes in many different colors ranging from neutrals to funky. The one I selected is called LILAS. LILAS being similar to its name is a lilac kind of shade which does not have shimmers but looks kind of shimmery. It is actually a metallic kind of shade.

My take on the NYX Long Pencil Eye Lilas:

Starting with the reason due to which I brought this eye liner, the brand and like I expected the product is good quality wise. It’s easy to use, cap/ sharpener is tight enough to carry it in hand bags. The color is amazing. It looks beautiful on eyes and makes the eyes brighter. But the actual problem starts when you try to apply the liner. The formulation is extremely soft. So soft that it easily breaks while applying and if you are lucky enough to apply it without breaking, then a lot of product gets collected on the lids. Another problem I encountered with this is that it smudges easily, all you need is a light hand and the product is almost gone. It easily gets transferred on the fingers. The trick to make it stay longer is forget you have anything on your eyes and dare not touch it ;) I didn’t like the product much but I am a little satisfied due to the fact that it is not very costly plus I got it on discount.

Pros of NYX Long Pencil Eye Lilas:

• Long length makes it easy to apply.
• Good amount of product.
• No need to carry an extra sharpener as it already has a sharpener.
• Not so costly.
• Good pigmentation.
• Metallic sheen and soft color makes it ideal for both day and night.
• Bottom colored section makes it easier to recognize the color.

Would I buy NYX Long Pencil Eye Lilas again?

I don’t think I would buy this again. For me it is difficult to use due to its extreme soft texture.

Do I recommend NYX Long Pencil Eye Lilas?

If you can handle extremely soft pencils or if you love soft pencils then you can try this, otherwise I will not suggest you to try this.
