Rated 4.12 out of 5 stars
Purchased 6 colors 3 weeks ago. I was so excited to try some new colored eyeliner but was sorely disappointed. Before application, I noticed that the colors on the actual bottle don't match the box at all, so that there me off. When I applied it, it went on nicely but I had to go over it a couple more times since the pink, yellow, and lilac ones were almost transparent. The other colors were nice to put on. The one thing I hated was when it dries. First off, it doesn't dry as the same colour it totally looks different. Second, the texture was horrible, it dries like paint, chips like paint, and looked like paint (look at swatches pic w/o flash to see the paint like texture). Lastly, the brush is too thick in my opinion, it made it hard to do details on my liner.
Now, I'm not a professional mua, so take my review with a grain of salt.
I bought this eyeliner in the color 'vivid fire' a couples of weeks ago and when I used it today (for the first time) it immediately felt dry and by the time i had applied mascara and falsies it had flaked like paint. :(

I bought this thinking it would be a bright red as advertised. Unfortunately it came as this dull orange-ish brown color. Definitely wasnt was I was expecting.

Nice color payoff. Wears well but not amazing. It's good for the price.

I really like the one I got (red) but the formula is a bit weird. It reminds me of a thin pigmented layer of liquid latex. That means you can achieve a nice neat intense line, but it will not hold up against any sort of contact. If you're vigilant about not touching your eyes throughout the day like me, that's just fine. And then it peels off in a clean strip with no staining when I take off my makeup. But it's definitely not going to withstand any rubbing and put on anything that might need blending well before you apply this product.

These apply fine. The teal color is really cute and with a black wing to anchor it - its an easy way to add color to your daily life. The red is more of a warm brown. Again very daily wearable. It makes blue eyes pop!
The waterproof version of this it comes in the standard brown and black colors is trash. So if you've tried those, it's a totally different product or just the same packaging.
The teal color is very close to the blue and green in this range so I think I'm going to skip those but I might pick up the lavender.

I loved the applicator and the colors, but the only (not so much of a deal breaker) con is that it kinda crumbled/gubbles up together and cam peel off.

I don't do makeup a lot and I'm really not creative or great with application. So when i offer to take my niece to see the Barbie movie and she tells me that i have to wear pink makeup i went on the hunt. I needed something affordable since i dont do pink ever for anything. I can always count on NYX to be a hreat product thay wint break the bank. This was a surprisingly great product. I went in store and tried their testers to get the color i wanted so that was no problem for me. I tested this out twice before movie day and this stuff STAYS on. Careful while you're letting it dry that it doesnt end up smearing when you blink. The applicstor brush is very small so you'd have to work at building a thick line. My hands arent too steady so there was little room for error which is not great for a novice. In the end it worked out great and i highly recommend.

I ordered the red. The box and bottle say "on red" but the color is more of a burnt orange or rust color. It is not the bright red I was expecting or hoping for.

I was really excited to try this liner, since I've been looking for a good pink one for a while. The packaging and design are pretty nice. Sadly, I have to say I'm disappointed. The applicator is weird and narrow which makes it difficult to draw a good wing. I thought the color would be brighter than what it was- but that is on me for not looking at swatches closer. It does dry quickly, but that goes for on the brush, too. I had a hard time getting more product on the applicator after the first use. Once it dries, it does seem very chalky and almost cakey. Pretty disappointing ☹

I love NYX eyeliner. The colors are bright and vivid and stay on. Love them. Make more colors!!!

So firstly Im not great at makeup, I wanted something simple for a pop of eye color without a ton of eyeshadow. This is that thing. The color looks the same as the box to me, so no issue there I got it in the light blue. First day I wore it no flaking however the second day I wore it, it flaked like paint chips. Easy enough to touch up but kinda annoying.

I just bought a couple of liners i bought the blue yellow and brown and red. all the colors looked amazing except for the red. the red doesnt look like anything that the pictures make it seem to look like, it looks almost brown. It sucks because the red was the one i was most excited about too. But when i opened the package and swatched it on my hand i was disappointed.

this eyeliner is really nice. applies easily with the thin brush and stays put after hours of wear. my only issue with it is it's not really red. I was hoping for a bright lipstick red but this is more of a terra cotta color. it still looks nice and I think compliments my brown eyes, but I'll still be looking for a red liner.

When I tell you I went back and purchased a couple more colors. Daughters will most likely use these more often but they were cute and LONG WEARING

When it says long wearing. IT IS long wearing.

I liked the purple color but I just can't stand how it cracks and if you don't do multiple layers it is streaky
Megan from TN
I'm honestly shocked at the rating for these. I could barely do a wing let alone a graphic design. The light colors are chalky and require multiple passes to get pigment. Then the product looks dry ans crackled. It was literally flaking in two hours. And the applicator is hard to work with. Go with a liquid eye shadow and a liner brush over this.
Will keep with waterproof products, beautiful brush, easy to handle but erases to easy, should need one coat only!

It's not perfect but it's super affordable. Only took a few tries to make it work how I like. (Don't tell but I can sleep in it and it stays on!)

I have been looking for a reliable line of colored eyeliners for so long, and NYX finally did it. I am in love with all of their liners but these are so good and they last all day. they can be hard to get off but that's great for concerts, parties, or anywhere you might sweat.

I love it because it's pink!

The color isn't as vibrant as it is online. On red is more like a terracotta red.
