Most Helpful Positive Review Never had a liner last like this
I wore this liner to a metal concert. I did massive, sharp wings. After seven hours of sweating (my face and body were actually dripping) this liner STAYED ON. The applicator was hard to get used to at first, but after a couple times wearing it it's a breeze. I have the blackest, sharpest eyeliner of my life. I'm about to repurchase and get one for my best friend. Holy grail.
Most Helpful Critical Review Good dark liner, but awful applicator
I bought this liner because of the good reviews for the product and I was sick and tired of spending $20+ dollars for a liquid eyeliner. Unfortunately, I have had the most difficult time controlling this product. So many times I have applied this runny mess to my lid and the liner seeps and spreads into every crevis on my eye. I think this is due to the brush tip applicator, the amount of product this deposits, and after a month of use, the "brush" was completely destroyed. I have had many eyeliners in the past, and I never had issues with the applicators. Id like to say that I have good skill with liner, but I just can't be satisfied with this eyeliner because no matter how careful I am, the black leaks EVERYWHERE. Though I love the formula of this affordable eyeliner, I will not be repurchasing.
I have attached pictures of the product's applicator, and performance on my hand. Note that I have been careful with putting the cap on and the brush was still destroyed after a month of use.

it works just as well as the kvd tattoo liner. if anything this liner was more opaque than the kvd tattoo liner. i love it.
Love it !

I love this eyeliner ! I am no way a beginner( but recommend for beginners) and tried many other high end eyeliners and still come back to this one. I finish my perfect wing eyeliner so fast. I wish they made more in different colors other then brown ❤️

I normally use IT Cosmetics Superhero eyeliner but was looking for a cheaper alternative. Several people recommended this so I decided to give it a try. The first few uses were great. The application was easy and it stayed on all day. But now, after only a week, it is almost completely dried out and the brush bristles are bending. It's probably more cost effective to just buy the IT Superhero liner once a month than have to buy a new Nyx one every week.
Good then bad

I agree with a previous reviewer on here, I really liked it at first, thought I finally found a winner of an eyeliner. Unfortunately, after a few uses it would start to leak. At first I thought it was because I would shake it for my second eye, but nope. I did not shake it for my second eye and it came out super runny and I cannot make the second wing look as good as the first because of the sudden running of the pen :(
Sigh...the hunt for a good black liner continues!

First off, I absolutely love this liner. It's very intense black and it lasts long on my lid. I also really enjoy the brush applicator BUT...(oh how I wish there was no 'but...') BUT...the ink started leaking and seeping through the brush tip. I bought it THREE times already thinking somehow it's my fault and messed the applicator with the cap. Nope, all three of them started having leaking issues within a week. It already stained my vanity stool due to ink spluttering everywhere even when I opened the cap very carefully. I really wish NYX would step and fix the mechanism of the applicator somewhere. PLEASE!
Favorite eyeliner for a good price
Ezzy from Dayton, OR
I use this as a daily liner. Perfect for making winged eyeliner or just a normal line. Dries on eyes quickly but the pen does not dry out. The coverage is perfect in one swipe. I originally used the NYX matte liquid liner with a brush and switched over. Best decision I made for eyeliner
Yes I will purchase again
Jules from North Carolina
I love the precise thin line and it stays on all day.
Madi from USA
I really wanted to like this because I love NYX in general, but this was not a good product. I don't consider myself to be someone who has oily lids, but this liner smudged onto my lids so badly. I even tried setting my lids with translucent powder and then the eyeliner itself with the powder and it still transferred. I will not be repurchasing :(
loved then didn't love it
Cait from Pennsylvania
I loved this eyeliner but after so long it got SUPER runny, when I'd open the container it would drip everywhere. As an eyeliner it was nice but when it got runny it was hard to get a thin line and wing.
I would buy again
Ren from Texas
I use this almost everyday and its the only eyeliner I use. its my favorite bc its easy to apply and lasts all day
lasted for two days
Kat from san diego
yikes. this eyeliner is NOT it at all, i'm so disappointed. this only lasted for two days before it completely dried out. it's 10000% not even close to being waterproof, even a small leak from the corner of your eye will wash this away very quickly. it is smudge proof of there's no moisture on your hand or face when touching it. the applicator is not a felt tip, it's a bunch of tiny bristles that don't stay pointed when you're using it. so if you're trying to make a nice wing, the bristles will blow out and mess everything up if you put too much pressure on it. it was nice and pigmented without being water the first two times i used it. now it won't work at all!!!!! do not waste your money, get the $3 eyeliner pen from elf. it's not waterproof but it lasts way longer than this worthless eyeliner.
Bianca from Jackson, NJ
I wanted to like this, I really did. While I will say that the brush tip is great for precision, that's basically all this liner is good for. I have oily lids and it went on well, but smudges within like ten minutes. I also had to shake it up a few times, but I just think that's because it was brand new. Not good at all, sadly
Ashley G from Long Island NY
Bought this hoping it would be a cheap alternative to my too faced better than sex liquid liner. This nyx liner Bleeds like crazy the second it touches my skin. I suspect it may work better on someone w really dry skin, but I put on eye cream and creamy concealer etc and it literally bleeds immediately. Womp Womp

this eyeliner is awful. it bleeds and it came with a messed up tip. absolutely DO NOT BUY has good pigment but thats about it.
Nadine from Queens , NY
Doesn't last at all dries fast and fades really fast
favorite eyeliner of all time < 3
soph :) from florida
i love love LOVE this eyeliner. i do rlly heavy thick eyeliner & this one works wonders, the pigment is wonderful & has a pretty finish. the felt tip is flexible & glides well, the only cons is that the tip frays pretty easily but i can still make it work, & that sometimes when i put a lot on & blink before it can fully dry, it transfers to my top lid, but other than that it's beautiful !
D from Riverside, Ca
Very easy to use, good pigment, dries quickly but at the end of the night only my wing is left and there's nothing in my lid…
Easy to Use
🐸 from US
This eye liner is very easy to use for its price. The pointed tip allowed it to go on very easily and smoothly. I would get this again.
one of the better ones i've bought
huh from nc
i've cried multiple times wearing this eyeliner and it doesnt move. it's probably the best liquid eyeliner i've used, not streaky or anything like that. my only issue is that the current one i have is leaking a lot. i've never had that issue with other liners but it seems i'm not the only one who's having this problem with this specific liner
KimMUA from NYC
I decided to give this eyeliner a shot since I love nyx and my go-to liquid liner was always the nyx matte liquid liner. This one had good reviews and I prefer a pen-style applicator tip BUT I was sadly, sadly disappointed with this one. I have hooded eyes and this liner transferred to my top lid so much, even with primer/eyeshadow/setting powder/etc. Nothing works to keep it from transferring and the whole claim for this eyeliner pen was that "This smudge proof eye liner is waterproof, so it won't smear, budge or smudge" LIES, ALL LIES NYX!! I will stick to my matte liquid liner unless they adjust this formula.
Best Drugstore Liner
NR from Stafford VA
I fell in love with it all over again. I had it a few years back, ran out of it and started buying other brands to try out. Bought it again recently, and I am obsessed with it. It's super easy to use and precise. I have very oily lids, and watery eyes (especially when wearing contacts) and it did not budge! i sually have the liners run on me near the inner corner of the eye, sometimes even water proof ones. Definitely worth its price, and works better for me than some of the high end liners.
💕 from sf
It literally frays at the tip and it makes it impossible to use. It doesn't last for more than an hour and you need to do multiple layers for it to look right.
has my heart
lari from dtx
the best liquid liner i've ever used. it's really pigmented and i love the felt tip because it's easy to use. i recommend :P
For a beginner, I would reccomend
Ally Winsere from Manhattan, New York
I really like this product and am able to get precise pigmented lines. I would recommend this because it's a pretty good product ( the black colored eyeliner ) and it's at a really good price. I touch my face a lot but this stayed on 7+ hrs with minimal smudge.
Its love it

I love this product. I am hooked and buying again
