I have the worst luck with pencils. Its sad really. With my allergies my eyes are watery and itchy most of the year. I picked these up thinking it would be another one for the graveyard but it was really good. Since it is so smooth and creamy going on it stays put. It goes on so well. This looks like this will be my go to eyeliner for the future.
I bought this hoping, just hoping something would work on my waterline... BUT this didn't. It is waterproof. I swatched it, let set, ran it under water, rubbed my finger over it, and it didn't budge. This is a great base, creases less than the Jumbo Pencil in Milk. This will probably work with someone who can get things to stay in their waterline, I just can't. It is on the more sheer side. It does need to be built up. For the price, it being waterprrof, I can't knock it.
I always wanted an eyeliner that didn't smudge off my face and I heard about these so I tried them. They work so well. It's creamy and glides on smoothly. I've noticed how ever they do still kinda smudge, if I have gym or dance or band so I just add a little eye primer below my lash line and that seems to help.
Great Dupe for UD 24/7 Pencils!
I am a loyal fan of my UD Perversion eyeliner pencil, but I picked up a NYX slide on pencil, because I feel in love with the color of Tropical Green. And I have a huge weakness for greens! As soon as I put it on, I was literally amazed! It had nearly the exact same texture as my UD pencil, and was gorgeous on my waterline.
If you're not willing to spend the money on UD pencils, these are a perfect dupe for you. The color range is even almost as amazing as UD's!
I will definitely be picking more of these up! But I can't see myself replacing Perversion just yet ;D
A dupe for UD's 24/7 Liner
I've heard plenty of reviews on these liners, so I decided to just give in to temptation and buy one just to see if I'd actually like it. It's so blendable. The way I see it, liner looks best when blended. I got the shade Golden Olive which is exactly what the name implies. It's a beautiful olive shade with golden flecks in it.
Works Great On Waterline!
I absolutely love my Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils, so when I heard the buzz about NYX's Slide On Eye Pencils and how comparable they were to Urban Decay's 24/7 pencils I knew I had to pick a few up! Upon first swatching them I instantly fell in love, they have the same creamy consistency as the UD pencils, possibly even a bit creamier (which is a gripe for later on) and they are super pigmented! They come in a wide range of colors just like the UD pencils which makes them very versatile.
After the first day receiving the NYX pencils in the mail, I did not hesitate to use them. I used them on my water line, tight line, and to line my lash line and they did not budge all day.. I was completely in love. And I would have nothing at all bad to say about these super pencils if it weren't for the fact that two of them have already broken (after only having them for two days) and I am finding it impossible to sharpen them with any success. Since they are so creamy, the product wears down almost instantly, and I dread the thought of having to sharpen my favorite in Brown Perfection and be unable to use it. If anyone has any tips on successfully sharpening these pencils, please please let me know!
Overall though, this is a great product for a great value and I will definitely be purchasing again!
I wasn't a fan of their other eyeliners to be honest, I'm definitely doing a separate review for those but I received the brown one of these from the Beauty Social goodie bag and it's a really nice eye pencil! The color is very pigmented and smooth, and it glides on the eyes perfectly. The next time I'm at Ulta i'm planning on pick some other colors up :)
FANTASTIC for waterlines
This is stupendous for waterlines and tightlining. The only problem I have with it is sometimes the line is a bit thicker than I want it to be but sharpening the pencil will clear that up right away. But honestly, with all the high-end cream liner pencils out right now, this is a FANTASTIC cheaper alternative. I am definitely buying this again.
NO GOOD for sensitive eyes.
I really wanted to love these. Swatching them on my hand they're so easy to glide on, so super pigmented and creamy, budge-proof after they set. YET, dundundun, I tried the black one on my waterline and HELLO it looked like I'd been punched. This one is NO GOOD for sensitive eyes!!! It does a similar thing like tarte's aqua liners, and stila's smudgestick.. and irritates the CRAP outta my eyes! UGH! It's really upsetting for me cause they're soooo pretty! You all that can wear these successfully: I'm jealous of you.
