Review: NYX felt tip liner in Extreme Black

What is it? 
"Felt tip pen eye liner releases the perfect amount of color for precise and dramatic lining. The long-lasting  and smudge-proof liner holds up to its name. "The One Day Tattoo" Won't smear. Waterproof." - NYX website

Retail price: $8

My Thoughts:
The packaging is clear and easy to read. This is the first time I've ever tried a liquid eyeliner, and I would say that it is very newbie friendly. It feels like I am taking a marker and lining my eyes with it. The tip is so pointy that it makes it easy to do thin lines, or create a thicker line. It doesn't feel like a brush, but more like a marker. I purchased the "Extreme black" color, and it really is. It glides on very smoothly; I like to make short strokes when I am applying it. It's very pigmented, long lasting, and will not smudge or smear throughout the day. At the end of the day, it looked the same way as it did when I applied it. Overall, I think this is a steal!

Would I recommend it?
Yes, to both newbie and expert liquid eyeliner users :]


  1. Looks so easy to apply... More like drawing with a marker than painting with a brush. I think it's easier to control your movements with a felt tip, am I right?

  2. that's great. I'm searching for a good one.^^
    In the last week I've tried out two different brands of liquid eyeliner pencils and they weren't worth the good pigmentation ect.

  3. I'm using one from Lise Watier,it looks the same but it's kinda of expensive!

    Thanks for the review, I think i'll pick this product instead of my other one!

  4. @Bibi It seems much easier because you have more control, where as with a brush, I might go all over the place!

    @Clover cool, let me know if you like it :]

    @luckiebeauty I hope you like this one as much as I do :]
