A little while ago, the drug store near my house was having a sale on NYX products. If you bought one product the second one was 50% off. I normally love NYX so I grabbed a couple of things I really needed. I got the Doll Eye waterproof mascara and the felt tip liner in jet black. This is the product I will be reviewing today.
This liquid liner sells for about $10 for 0.02 oz of product. This is a tiny amount of product to me. My Hard Candy Walk The Line liner has 0.112 oz. Here is what it looks like:
This liner comes in a very convenient pen style, which is why I bought it. I have tried a few other felt tip liners before and, for the most part, liked them, so I thought this one would be similar. I was wrong. For starters, the felt tip is very fat, making it difficult to get a very thin line. If you do manage to get a thin line, it tends to not be very opaque. The tip is also very hard and feels sort of scratchy on my skin.
At first I thought that this liner might have one redeeming quality because I thought it was going to be super long lasting. Here is a picture of my hand with many doodles all over it:
The doodles on the right are from the day before. They survived sleeping with my hand under a pillow and showering the next morning and work all day. They do look super faded, but the fact that they are still there at all was impressive to me. The lines on the right are brand new, to give you an idea of what this stuff can do.
This staying power seems pretty impressive right? Unfortunately, when eyelid oils get involved, it can hardly last 8 hours of work and dinner.... I used this to do some winged eyeliner today and got home to find one wing almost completely gone.
This stuff is just plain disappointing all around. Not only is it a tiny amount of product, it is scratchy and has horrible staying power. I would absolutely not repurchase this!
Have you tried a NYX felt tip liner before? Did you find it as terrible as I did?
