NYX Matte Liquid Liner Review

black_white

I recently read a blog, or saw an Instagram post, or dreamt it, or I don’t know, but something told me I should try out NYX Matte Liquid Liner so I did because I listed to the higher power when it tells me I should buy more makeup, but only then. Only recently I’ve started really experimenting with eyeliner and winged eyeliner after attending a Sephora Beauty Class (post on this coming soon!), but I usually go for those felt tip eyeliners in the drugstore just because in my head that looks like it would be pretty simple – you know, how hard can it be to draw a line with Sharpie, right? – lies. They suck and I just can’t do it. They never have much bend so it’s hard to make the felt tip mold to my eye and my eyelid.

Soooo after the voice in my head told me to try this out I said why not?! They recently opened a NYX store in San Antonio so it was one more reason to go and check it out. The store is great and it’s nice to be able to see all their products in one place. I wasn’t crazy about it, they’re trying to go for a Sephora vibe but to me, Sephora is and will be the one and only beauty store where all your dreams come true. Other than that, you can get any NYX product, test them (which is a big plus since usually at stores like Target there are no testers), and buy them.

Since I am only learning the art of winged eyeliner, I’m not going to lie and say everything went on smoothly and it was a dream come true, because it wasn’t. I got frustrated, I ended up freely drawing on my face out of frustration, I erased the wing a million times, and I kept trying and trying until I finally achieved an okay wing. Okay it was a little better than okay. I did find it so much easier with this product than all the other ones I’ve tried before and that made me so happy! The pigmentation is also amazing and I didn’t have to go over it a million times – which is usually how I end up screwing up – and it stayed all-day-long. I visited the Botanical Garden and it was hot and I was sweating and it didn’t budge. It didn’t transfer into my eyelid or started dripping down my face. I was very impressed.

If you’re like me and have stuck to the felt tip liners, I highly recommend you give this a go! It’s affordable and that makes it a good first investment before trying a similar high-end product.

not the best quality picture, but this was in 80 degree weather (almost 30 degrees celsius) and just thought I’d show you my not so crappy work

  • My preferred lip for the #summer☀️ is @colourpopcosmetics lippie stix in Poppin’. If you haven’t tried their lipsticks, make sure you do! It is such a great, affordable brand with great quality. What’s your favorite @colourpopcosmetics product?

  • Are you ready for summer? Showing you a fun, poppin’ summer look! On this first part I used the Just Peachy Mattes from @toofaced, and then I show you how I fix a little mascara mishap with a @realtechniques tool. How do you make sure your mascara is looking good?

  • Ending the day with a little #selfcaresunday! #firstaidbeautygiftedme the Ginger and Turmeric Vitamin C Jelly Mask. This mask is supposed to brighten and soothe stressed out skin. At the moment, I’m not necessarily stressed BUT we can all do with a soothing mask on a Sunday night. I love how refreshing this mask feels on the skin. The jelly consistency is great, and I almost want to put it in the fridge... Can you do that? @firstaidbeauty #firstaidbeauty #helloFAB #OctolyFamily

Usando esta mascarilla para terminar la semana y empezar una nueva! Como les gusta terminar sus semanas?

  • #EsteeLaudergiftedme My current night-time skincare routine🌘 I alternate between the @esteelauder Advanced Night Repair Serum and the @pixibeauty Jasmine Blend oil (not pictured). I love the @katesomervilleskincare Cold Cream to remove my makeup, and then I go in with my @freshbeauty Soy Cleanser and the @clarisonic. What does your night routine look like?
