The go-to goodie in every beauty's makeup bag? A little black liner, of course! Inspired by this enduring essential, the NYX Professional Makeup's Faux Blacks collection puts a bold twist on a classic that will forever be a chic choice. Available in a variety of deep matte shades with a hint of rich color - from midnight blue to dark olive - these striking eyeliners are creamy and go on smooth, which makes drawing a precise line or smudging it out totally simple.
Create a sleek line across your lids or smudge the shade for a smokey effect.

      I tried every eyeliner imaginable and nothing stayed on my waterline ever!!! I found these liners about a year ago and they stay!!! I can't believe it... especially because I tried so many high end liners! What an awesome find! I have almost every color!

      Very easy to use, do use a light hand when outlining the shape of the brows though.

          Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Faux Blacks:

          this may be a good liner on upper lid, but definitely do no recommend on water line. it clumps up and the little chunks get in eyes. i would try and go over my water line to try and get more color on and some parts would get more pigmented but other parts would clump up. DO NOT RECOMMEND on water line i will try again lid and see how it works though.

            These are great, the colors are so pretty on, I got blackberry and obsidian, I'm older, and these are just right in replacing a black.

            Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Faux Blacks:

            I picked this liner up on a whim the other day, as I have been looking for a green liner. The color is amazing, and it applies like a dream. The liner lasted all day. Will definitely repurchase.

                  I use this on a daily basis to widen and soften the line made by my liquid black eyeliner. I wanted a dark liner, but not a true black and this onyx liner was perfect. The product said it was for the water line under the eye, but the sales clerk was very helpful and said it could be used on the upper lid, as well. I love NYX products. They provide excellent quality and variety at a reasonable price. Highly recommend.
