Well some days back I ordered some makeup items online from Flipkart and as they were providing some attractive discounts I ordered this NYX Eye pencil from them. This is the first NYX product owned by me.
Well these pencils are Eye/Eyebrow pencils and are not retractable which means you need to sharpen them .Which means product wastage for me.
Price- 180 INR
Experience- The product comes in a pencil form and has a black cap on top. the shade and ingredients etc. information written over the pencil in white. The shade is shown with the coloured Ends of the pencil (though mine is black, with other shades this feature is helpful)
The consistency is smooth and does not tug, though I feel that there is a lot of waste due to sharpening and the tip breaks most of the times while sharpening so I’ve already wasted a lot of the product.
On eyes with a primer it stays for around 4 hours easily and without it you can expect it to stay around three hours maximum. But I suggest do not use it above your crease as it will travel. I have tried it on my waterline but did not like the results.
It smudged like those old kajals we used to wear when we were young and was a horrible experience.
So Here we go with the Pros and Cons
- Many colors to choose from
- Travel friendly
- Does not pull or tug, nice texture
- Easy to use and apply
- Easy to look up in a stash with color coded backs
- Can be used on waterline too
- Staying power is average
- Can be used as a base for eye shadows
- Travels when used on waterline or above crease
- Tip is very soft, hence easily breakable
- You may find better liners from other brands at this price with better staying power
Rating: 3 out of 5 as it smudges a lot and travels. Also the tip breaks easily.
My Take: I am looking for better liners at this price as I feel there are many liners which have better staying power and consistency at this price.
