NYX Liquid Eye Liner Review

by jomol on April 8, 2011 · 89 comments

Hello girlies,
It’s been almost 2-3 months that I had been practising eye liner application with my LancΓ΄me felt tip eye liner (I reviewed it here on IMBB ), and I got little confidence that I would be able to deal with liquid ones.

So, I got this NYX liquid liner along with my other etc. etc. stuff from phoren friend … πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
nyx liquid eye liner

What the company claims about the product

NYX’s Liquid Eye Liner is known for long-lasting, smudge-proof durability. The thin brush applicator offers ease of application for both bold and precise lines. Unlike other liquid eyeliners, this liner creates a quick-dry formula that stays rich in color.

The liquid liner offers thin or dramatic lining in 24 unparalleled shades. The thin brush applicator offers ease in application & unlike other liquid liners, NYX’s liquid liner has a quick dry formula that stays rich in color.
eye liner shades
Shades available
The liquid eyeliner offers subtle or dramatic lining with an unparalleled 24 shades (as mentioned on the site)
black shade
The shade I have is LE01 BLACK.

Price, 6$. (To me it has costed around INR.365. I got this along with other NYX stuff and that package had about 12 things and shipping was $25. So I have calculated shipping per item to be around Rs. 95, so total cost for this liner = 270+95 :D)
ingredients
INGREDIENTS
Water, Iron Oxide, Acrylates Copolymer, Propylene Glycol, Glycerin, Ultramarine Blue,
Sodium Polyacrylate, Imidazolidnyl Urea, Methylparaben, Propylparaben.

My Experience With NYX Liquid Eye Liner

This is my first liquid liner and I am happy with my purchase. Being too dependant on pencil liners, Initially I was a bit scared to use it as I have always failed & messed up my eye looks whenever I tried putting on a liquid liner. But with this I can easily draw thin / thick lines as the thin applicator is really easy to use. In just one swipe on the eye lid I get a pretty dark black line. However, it does not meet its superfast drying claim. With super fast we infer that it should be all dried up as soon as when we finish lining up but I had to wait for 30-40 seconds for it to dry and open up my eyes. Overall I like this liner for the dark color pay off as compared to pencil liners.

What is good about NYX liquid eye liner

β€’ The shades is really intense black
β€’ The thin wand makes application precise and easy.
β€’ You just need one swipe to get a nice dark coat of liner.
β€’ Good staying power… will fade just a little even after 4-5 hours..
β€’ Dries to give a matte look.
β€’ The number of shades available is fantastic.
β€’ Easy to handle and carry Sleek packaging

What is not so good about NYX liquid eye liner

β€’ The consistency is really thin and as against the claim it does not dry that super fast. It takes at least 30-40 seconds
β€’ Dries to a matte finish. If you are looking for eyeliners that dry glossy, these are not for you
β€’ It is not waterproof
β€’ Flakes a little (but only after 3-4 hours.)
β€’ Contains parabens.
β€’ Not easily available in India.

Will I buy it again?
I don’t think so, but that’s just because I want to try gel eye liners next. I definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a routine wear, budget liner and not something luxurious.
IMBB rating = 3/ 5 :-* :-* :-* ( -2 for not being easily available around and for not drying super fast as claimed.)
