Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Faux Blacks:

I bought oxblood and burnt sienna. I have been waiting forever for a brand to come out with a red eyeliner so I am glad that NYX finally did. Great colors and glide on smoothly, really makes green/hazel eyes pop. My only issue is that burnt sienna appears quite clumpy and flaky on the waterline.

Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Faux Blacks:

I love this eyeliner. It goes on so smoothly, doesn't smudge (which is a huge problem for me) and lasts all day. I can throw away all my other liners, it's THAT good. Burnt Sienna is a beautiful reddish-brown that's so beautiful. I'm seriously obsessed with this eyeliner.

          Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Faux Blacks:

          I have mixed feelings about this one. It applies very smoothly. It is creamy, and I apply it on the upper waterline without issue. I have Onyx, Obsidian, and Blackhole. I like these as a tightline because they're a nice change on brown eyes from just plain black, and I generally go with a very neutral contoured eye when I use colored or heavy lashes and liner. I basically wanted to use this eyeliner for tightlining (which I like it for) and for pushing into the top lashline and smoking out with a corresponding shadow color, or just smudging into a wing (see Karima McKimmie's Easiest Winged Liner video on youtube). Soooo, that part it doesn't work for. I find that both Obsidian and Blackhole kind of crumble and flake everywhere when I do this. It's the strangest thing. Little particles just kind of crumble everywhere, even if I start smudging almost immediately. I've had mascaras flake in a similar fashion in the past, but never a new eyeliner. I used Obsidian this morning, and it flaked in my eyes something fierce. I haven't tried this yet with Onyx, but after this morning's incident, probably not going to do that. This is super disappointing, because I thought I was going to get off a little cheaper, and get 3 different colors compared to Urban Decay's one. The colors are gorgeous, and they do work nicely in the waterline, if you put em there and don't mess with em.

              Ordered this because I wanted to try out the faux black liners. I like the color, but was a little disappointed with how clumpy it seemed to come out. You can smudge it however, and it still leaves amazing color. Can't wait to try the other colors I purchased as well.
