        I got this in the dark green to tight line and normally liners on me transfer to the bottom lash line this does not! I like to wear liner on top and nothing on bottom to keep my eyes looking fresh and awake. I will buy this again.

          This is a really nice concept. Black but with a little color. More than I'd pay though. It was on sale.

                  Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Faux Blacks:

                  Had bought this product in other shades and was happy with the product. Onyx however does not let me apply a light touch and applies bolder than I prefer. The pencil would not sharpen well and broke several times during the sharpening process. Have not had that happen with the other colors. The product was too creamy and smudged all over my hands during the sharpening process. It was difficult to wash off. Hands are stained where the color got on them even after washing with soap. Which is odd because the other colors used washed off my face very easily. I would not recommend the Onyx color.

                  Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Faux Blacks:

                  Color payoff was great, bought the purple shade which is a deep purple. Works well in waterline and to line upper lashes. Didn't smudge all day. My only complaint is the design of the pencil itself. The plastic end of the pencil fell off after two uses.

                    Great price for an eye pencil that is comparable to high end eye pencils, but cheaper. The color is gorgeous, it's a black, brown, burgandy color, that is very different, but very nice. I recently purchased this so I haven't used it a lot yet, but so far I really like it. It glides on smoothly and stays on for hours. I highly recommend this NYX eye pencil and this color.
