Most Helpful Positive Review Great!
So, I only do brightly colored fashion brows now--my favorite products for doing this are the Inglot Gel liners. However, even with their range there are only so many Inglot colors, so I ventured into the Nyx for just the right shade of bright purple to match my old hair color.
I use products such as this basically like ABH Dipbrow--the Inglot is MUCH creamier and easier to apply than Dipbrow, however (which is perfect since you need to coat your natural hairs to change the color, not merely enhance as you would with Dipbrow). My main issue with the Nyx Vivid Brights is that it is MUCH dryer/stiffer than the Inglot, and therefore a lot harder to apply whether you are using it for brows, as a liner, or as a shadow base. I have learned to remedy this by using about 1/8th of a drop of Inglot Duraline and mixing with the Vivid Brights on a metal palette. It is a little bit of a hassle--even though I use a palette every day for brows, the mixing is more work--but the color is so beautiful and it last so well throughout the day it is worth it to me when I want one of the colors of brows I only have in Vivid Brights. I am stopped constantly and complimented on my brows whether I use the Nyx or the Inglot. An upside to having to use the Duraline with the Nyx is that I can control the consistency much more than with the Inglot, which makes the product easier to control on my brows.
All in all, I wish the texture/consistency was a bit creamier....."looser" or "thinner" would be a good word, I guess. But a significant upside is that it doesn't seem to dry out as crazy quickly as the Inglot gel liners do--when you have over a dozen of these types of products for your brows, you can't possibly use an entire container in a few months, and the Inglot ones are all cracking inside of their little pots. The Nyx, however, literally still looks absolutely brand new--hence why I am back buying my 3rd, 4th, and 5th shades of the Nyx Vivid Brights!
Most Helpful Critical Review Stained my skin!!!!
Bought the bright neon pink one for a Sugar Skull makeup look for a Day of the Dead party I am going to... primer, base and a waterproof gel eyeliner were underneath it and it still stained my skin pink. My eyelids and dots around my eyes were magenta. I used everything from micellar water, waterproof makeup remover, straight up coconut oil and apricot scrub to remove it and it didn't budge. My skin was stained for 3 days.

Seriously, don't. Was already clumpy and drying after 1st use. I wish they would reformulate though because it's a gorgeous color.

I bought to film a look for my YouTube channel and it felt like I was drawing on my face with a piece of chalk
I would never purchase this color again!

I wish this was the same texture as the blue creme because the blue was so much easier to pick up and apply to the lid.
Avoid this eyeliner
Jazzy from California
It was super dry. I kept trying to add primer oil to make it work and it just wasn't worth it for the color anymore.
DO NOT BUY
Alli from Gainesville FL
I tried this product as a neon liner. And as soon as my brush touched the product I knew it would all go down hill. The product was dry and hard to get on the brush. Once applied, I had to build up to get a beautiful color, but the end result looked cakey. It looked like if I added anymore the product would just flake off my lids. Mind you I had the NYX eye primer on my lids.
Chloe from Little Rock
Just dont buy, so dry when it says creme color. The color is nice but cant even use it :(
Like a crayon
Catherine from Alaska
This had no pigment and destroyed my makeup brush. I put water on it and tried to mix it around but it didn't want to absorb the water.
Worst eyeliner ever!!!

Smells horrible, hard to work with, and is extremely clumpy. Save your money for something better!

Would not buy
Teresa from Advance, Missouri
This was supposed to be a cream eyeliner. It was dry and unusable. I am currently using a Maybelline cream eyeliner but wanted some colored eyeliner. Purchased this and other color. When I tried to use it, I could really apply it because it was dry and it looked awful.
Will return...it was very dry and hard to apply!

Dry and hard to apply.
Last time a buy this product was dried out 😢
..... from Los Angeles Ca
Use it as regular eyeliner, I've tried wetting my brush which makes it a little easier to apply but it's still super dried out maybe the one I got just wasn't good.
Disappointed in color and pigment saturation
FaceNHair from KS
I was hoping this could be a dupe for a discontinued MAC fluidline color. I ordered Bad Blood which appeared to be a deep oxblood red In the photo/description but it's more of a barely rust red. The pigment is subpar unfortunately even if it was the right shade. It doesn't glide well.
Would buy again

It's hard to find a matte eyeshadow without sparkles and this one is great !!!
Feels like putting on makeup with a crayon
Pao from Miami
Very disappointed with this product from NYX. It's so dry! As pretty as the colors are, I do not recommend to anyone
La from San Jose
This product was so hard to get on the brush! When I was applying the product on my lids it would literally ball up. I had this product for a few days when I opened to give it a second chance the top layer was dry !!! Wouldn't recommend!
sliceofcherry from wausau
way too dry to do anything with and that was one the first day I bought them. unsure if I just bought old ones or what.
Dried out in a month - unusable.
Emmy from LA
Bought two amazing colors that completely dried out and became unusable within about a month. Can't use them as creme shadows or even as a liner anymore, they've become tacky and chunky and impossible to work with.
MHerb from Maryland
Creamy and good color pigmentation! Especially for the price.
ZANTARAmakeup from Virginia
i purchased this for a phantasy look i wanted to create. it is very pigmented just how i wanted it to be. it is very sticky and it was somewhat a little hard to apply, but i did apply primer before i dapped it on my eye so it helped. i read that it was hard to come off as well. so i took my makeup off with a makeup wipe remover, and tried removing whatever i could of the creme color. then used my micellar cleansing water to remove it and it came off, only problem is that there was visible stains on my face. i washed it off with my daily face wash and it came off completely. so yes its some work to get it off but it worked well for what i needed it for. and its not that bad but it could of been better.
Not a crème
Sofzao from Colombia
Some of them are super dry, you can even take pigment and other ones are impossible to apply, the colours are amazing but you can't use them
Avoid This Stuff
Aub from Nebraska
Worst NYX product I've used. Impossible to apply, warming it up does not help. Dry, crumbly, unblendable. Then, good luck getting it off your face and brushes. NYX rocks, but this doesn't.
mmpc79 from undisclosed
Very dry and sticky texture, not smooth or creamy! Doesn't glide or spread easily, so it doesn't go on evenly at all! You have to push really hard to get any color to deposit on your eyes. It tugs on eyelids and just looks cakey and chunky if you can even get it off the brush. Absolutely horrible. Do not waste your money!
Jenna from Pennslyvania
I only tried one shade which was Bad Blood. I was so excited to use it in looks during the fall. The first two times I used it went well, it was a beautiful shade that applied nicely. But by the third time it had dried out and become one hard lump almost. It was very disappointing considering the amount of times I actually got to use it.

I bought this for my sister and she loves the color. Purchased with an angle brush for easy application.
