NYX Faux Blacks Eyeliner Burnt Sienna Review

Greetings everyone,

I have three shades – Burnt Sienna, Midnight and Oxblood – from the NYX Faux Blacks Eyeliner range. These are inner eyeliners, i.e. eyeliners meant only for the waterline. I probably have never seen such deep and dark shades solely for the waterline. I personally like to use NYX Faux Blacks Eyeliners over the lashline as well. In this post, I will be sharing my views about Burnt Sienna. Let’s get into the details.

My Experience with NYX Faux Blacks Eyeliner Burnt Sienna:

NYX Faux Blacks Eyeliner Burnt Sienna comes in a regular sleek and sharpenable pencil form. The pencil is black coloured with details written in white and has a colour-coded end. The colour-coded end helps in picking up the desired shade without going thoroughly in the stash. The pencil itself bears all important information regarding the product. It has no outer cardboard packaging but comes sealed with a cellophane to prevent tampering. This is a sharpenable pencil but no sharpener has been provided with it. Overall, the packaging is easy to work with and travel-friendly too.

Burnt Sienna has been described as “a beautiful deep burgundy” shade. It is, in fact, a burgundy-toned brown shade that looks really great. Every shade from the Faux Blacks range is nearly black – just like every shade of Faux Whites Eye Brightener range is nearly white. The shade is very deep and dark and complements smoky eyes perfectly.

You can actually match your waterline with the colour you choose to do smoky eyes with. Apart from Burnt Sienna, there are 7 other shades: Oxblood (dark red), Onyx (deep teal), Midnight (navy blue), Black Olive (deep olive), Obsidian (deep indigo), Blackberry (deep amethyst), and Black Hole (deep purple).

The pigment of Burnt Sienna is good enough. It almost provides opaque finish in a single swipe or stroke. In a couple of swipes, it provides full pigmentation. The pigment can be intensified as it is easily buildable. You can get more and more deep and rich shade with more clean and neat strokes.

NYX Faux Blacks Eyeliner Burnt Sienna Tip

This eyeliner is very creamy and glide effortlessly. I don’t have to drag for making a stroke. This eyeliner is creamy yet it sets to a pure matte finish. It takes a few seconds to dry and settle down, which gives me the time to smudge it if I want. While smudging, the eyeliner crumbles a bit, but as soon as it dries off, there is no crumbling unless I rub it hard.

Not to mention, it does not budge at all. I love using Maybelline Gel Eyeliners but they make my eyes watery if applied too close to the waterline, plus they get easily smudged on my lash line. However, the formula of these eyeliners does not make the eye watery and that’s why I love these so much. I can use these eyeliners on the waterline as well as on the lashline.

Staying Power:
Once it’s set, it is water-resistant and smudge-proof. It stays intact all day long without making eyes uncomfortable or watery. If I rub my eyes harder then it may come off a little bit, but does not look smudged at all. As a product for the water line, it is an awesome eyeliner that does not come off on its own easily. It does not irritate the eyes either. As the lash line product or regular eyeliner, it works fine.

It becomes streaky on the lashline if too many strokes or swipes are used. I try to make the eyeliner thick on my upper lash line, which sometimes looks streaky, because I apply too many strokes in the process. However, when it completely settles down, the streakiness is not visible. It can easily be removed with a waterproof makeup remover at the end of the day. I use Garnier Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water and a couple of swipes are enough. It does not stain the eye area with this remover.
