NYX Retractable Eye Liner – Deep Purple Review

This is a pencil I missed picking up in my U.S. haul through a friend who came back to India. Recently when I found this pencil linear online, I couldn’t resist picking up one. I am really glad I did. Let’s see how it works for me.

Rs. 350 but I got on an online discount for Rs. 297. Not bad. Isn’t it? As it cost $4.50 in US. Considering the current Rupee fall, not a big difference I would say.

My take on the product:

It is a very slim mechanical pencil. The entire pencil from the tip to end is in the shade of the pencil. It is very easy to identify the pencil when we hoard many. The pencil has the complete list of ingredients on its body. It has no sharpener attached to it. It claims water proof. Only other detail on the body of the pencil is it says “cruelty free/ hypoallergenic”. That is good news.

The shade I own is deep purple. Its shade number is MPE 17. It is a very good purple with no shimmers. So, it can be used as a day time as well as night time wear. I would say good plum shade that would help to pop your eyes out. Though the color says deep purple, it looks like a normal purple to me. I think it is better not to try purple. Purple is another shade available in this range. I believe purple will not show up on Indian skin tones. If any you have tried purple from this range, correct me if I am wrong.
The texture is very good and creamy. There is no tugging or pulling on my eye lids. It is highly pigmented. I would say it would show up even on highly pigmented lids in a swipe or two. There is no sharpener attached to it. Now I am able to draw thin as well as think lines. I am not sure how thin lines would be a possibility in the later stage. I like thick lines. It is not an issue to me. This is too creamy. I have to warn not to put pressure on the tip. It may break. It has not happened to me till date.
It can be used on both the lash lines and it stays put. It cannot be smudged. Thereby no chances of using it in smoky eye look. It can only be used as an eye linear. It is completely smudge proof. It stays on my lids the whole day with an eye primer. To me, whole day is 8 hours. It stays put. I have not used beyond 8 hours. I have normal lids. It doesn’t come off when I splashed water in it. Next I tried it under running water for 30 second. It still didn’t budge. When I rubbed it, linear swatch came off but it didn’t smudge. I rubbed very roughly. It shouldn’t be a big negative. It came quite easily with a cleanser without any mess. I am okay with accepting its claim of water proof. Though, I won’t vouch for it.
