I usually like pencil liners over liquid liners, especially when going for a bold color. Normally, I use my Avon pencil eyeliners, but they always smudge a bit. I considered buying the Urban Decay ones, but they are just too expensive! When NYX came out with these, I figured that i'd give it a shot!
These don't move at all! And all of the amazing colors allow me to be very creative with what I want to do any day. They are long wearing, very pigmented, and inexpensive! What more could you ask for?

Yay! First colorful liner in like ever!
So as I've gotten better with makeup application I've been getting into brighter colors, especially in the waterline. I'm obsessed with aqua liners in the waterline and lashline, especially in contrast to a terracotta lid shade for example. I really want to try Stila's aqua colored liners, (liquid and pencil form) but because I gotta get my makeup on the cheap, I decided to check this out. The color pay-off is pretty good, and with two swipes its opaque. The shimmer is nice, but I'd prefer a matte turquoise color. I set the liner with UD's Painkiller, a bright blue shadow, to prevent any possible creasing. I like that this is cheap, pretty pigmented, retractable, and you get a nice amount for a low price. NYX has become one of my go-tos for affordable yet satisfying makeup. Can't wait to play around with this shade more- its great for playing with contrasting colors or textures around the eye. I also used it to make a bindi/face decorations and it wasn't half bad! Most of my liners are neutral so its nice to have one colorful liner!
Totally worth it
I have this in gold and blue. The pigmentation is unbelievable and its hard but goes on smoothly but the formula drys out. The packaging is nice because its retractable. These compare to urban decay but these arnt as creamy but are wayyy cheaper.
