REVIEW + SWATCHES: NEW NYX ELECTRO LINERS | Are These a Dupe for the MUFE Aqua XL Eye Pencils?




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.


Cost: $4.50

Where to buy: click here 

These come in 14 colors but I only picked up 6 of the shades to try.

Shades I bought:

  • Jungle Vibes – Deep Teal
  • Azulina – Dep Sky Blue
  • Riot – Lavender
  • Pretty Potion – Lilac Purple
  • Green Ivy – Light Grass Green
  • Jaded – Bright Lime Green



When I saw these I immediately thought of the new Make Up For Ever Aqua XL Eye Pencils. To see my review on those liners click here.

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.
