A beauty blog on the hunt the best performing beauty products whether it is high-end, drugstore, or low-end and everything in between. I love reviewing new products and bringing you swatches. I also keep everyone up to date on new makeup releases.
These eyeliners are amazing!! I honestly have nothing bad to say about them! I dare say they might be one of the best eyeliners from the drugstore!! These eyeliners compare to the Make Up For Ever Aqua XL Eyeliners! No joke! These actually might be better.
Every shade is really creamy and SO pigmented! They glide on the eyes so nicely and easily. Once you put them on they take maybe 30 seconds to set so you will have time to blend them out if you need to. Once they are set they don’t budge! These don’t smudge or run or anything! The formula is so amazing on all of these colors! You won’t find another drugstore liner out there like these.
The shade selection is so beautiful too! I really hope NYX comes out with more shades. I feel like these might be a hit this year.
In case you haven’t heard, Urban Decay is launching some freaking awesome products in July and I can’t wait!!! I have heard the exact release date but some of these products will be out July 10th and July 19th. I assume the rest will be out in July maybe August.
NYX Electro Liners: frame your eyes in intense color with NYX Cosmetics’ Electro Liners. Available in a variety of charged-up shades, these retractable eyeliners deliver vibrant matte color and lasting payoff.
I only bought 6 shades to try out and swatch for you. I might pick up a few more.
These are great drugstore eyeliners. It is hard to find these type of bright shades when it comes to drugstore liners.
As far as formula goes these are not a dupe to the Make Up For Ever Aqua XL Eyeliners but they are a great drugstore alternative. However, some of the shades might be similar to one another. The Make Up For Ever Liners are much more creamy and last longer. These Electro liners are good though. They have good pigment but not nearly as bright at the Aqua XL Eyeliners.
When you apply these to your waterline they don’t pack as much of a punch. They still show pigment but you have to build it up. I would suggest using them below the waterline if you want them to show up more. These have good staying power and they are waterproof but
I love the colors of these eyeliners these tend to wear off faster than the Aqua XL liners. Once these dry down they do a good job staying on the lid but on the waterline they fade faster. These are waterproof, I tested them on my arm, let them dry and then tried to rub them off with water and it was difficult to get them off so I took a makeup remover wipe and that did the trick.
I really love the deep teal color – Jungle Vibes. The green shades didn’t pack as much of a punch as the rest, but they all work nicely.
I think for $4.99 these are definitely worth it. Especially since they are the only waterproof bright eyeliner at the drugstore.
The day has finally come!! I have been waiting for these bad boys to be available.
