Currently I am on the hunt for the perfect eyeliner, something that is compact, easy to apply, feels gentle on my eye lid and gives me an intense black precise line. Unfortunately I am still searching, but I thought I’d do a quick review / comparison of two NYX liners I managed to trial 🙂
First up is the NYX Felt Tip Liner, which is essentially a pen liner. Take the lid off and go.
Second is the NYX Liquid Eye Liner, which comes with a thin small brush that you dip into a tube of the product.
I’ve decided to do a point form comparison, else this post would become way too wordy.
- Liquid Eye Liner gives a much more intense pigmented black line than the Felt Tip Liner.
- Felt Tip Liner dries much faster than the Liquid Eye Liner.
- The Felt Tip Liner’s tip is very sharp and hard, with almost no “give”, which means whilst it can give a lovely precise line and is easy to control it can actually be physically painful to apply .
- The Liquid Eye Liner’s tip is much more gentle to the eye, though can be more difficult to control than the Felt Tip Liner.Not as makeup “beginner” friendly.
Next on my NYX eye liners to try probably will be the fat and skinny liners, has anyone else tried them before?
