NYX's Liquid Eye Liner in 'Black' - Review & Swatch

This review was not supposed to be published but I just could not let it go to waste. The reason behind that was, the company who sent me this product, does not sell this anymore and it is not available at NYX's official website as well but I still managed to find a reliable source that is selling it at good price in 24 amazing shades. Let's see how I found this product.

NYX's Liquid Eye Liner:
They say: 'Try something new tonight, spices it up with cool shades from NYX. 24 shades to choose from, your eyes will get all the attention tonight. Liquid liners are the best way to create natural definition of your eyes. Comes with a brush application for precise application.'

Product Description & Packaging:
This is a liquid eye liner and the body is made up of plastic just like the usual eye liners. It contains 6.5ml of product. The applicator is thin, the way I like it.
This was sent to me by Blanc II Noir and the product was pretty secured in a box with lots of packing material.

In the following swatch, (left side) I swiped this product really lightly so you can see the finish and non-feathering factor. On right side, you can see that it is not too runny and the color is really intense. I applied it and took the picture and the difference would be of 3-5 seconds. So you can see that it dries quickly and dries matte. I just love the eye liners that dry matte because then they give a gel liner finish.

Overall Experience & Recommendation:
I am a huge fan of eye liners like most of the people and almost never leave my house without an eye liner on my eyes. My first preference is always a gel liner but for me that is a bit more tricky. So far, I have found that liquid eye liners are really easy to apply. I usually apply it with the applicator that comes with it but sometimes I apply it with an eye liner brush, for more precise application.
Overall, this product is good but the fact that it is not water proof, marked it a bit negative. However, as I loved this product so much that I did not wanted it to 'feel' neglected, I experimented with it and I found these results:
  • If applied over eye shadows, it stays put for longer hours so if I want a no-eye-shadow look, I sweep a natural shade on my lids and then apply this.
  • If applied over an eye primer, it becomes water/sweat resistant. As usually I don't like to go into the rain with makeup on =P this trick worked for me nicely. 
I will recommend this product for people who are looking for a liquid eye liner that is smudge free, has nice pigmentation, dries matte, has a good applicator and above all, is light on pocket. It comes in so many beautiful color that I am looking forward to buy a few in some bright colors.
