NYX Studio Liquid Liner - Review & Swatches

NYX Studio Liquid Liners come in a lot of fun, colorful shades and add a nice metallic sheen when worn over any liner or by itself. I got them in the most safe shades. Extreme Black which is a deep, glossy black with no hint of shimmer/glitter and Extreme Coffee, a dark metallic coppery brown.
What I like about these liners:

  • The shades are really intense and the thin wand makes application precise and easy.
  • I just need one swipe to get a nice glossy coat of liner. 
  • Dries pretty fast.
  • Nice shade range.
  • Pocket-friendly($4.50).
  • Dries to a slick, glossy finish. If you are looking for eyeliners that dry matte, these are not for you.

What I dislike about these liners:

  • They are not waterproof.
  • Accidentally rubbing your eyes causes them to peel off! It doesn't smudge though. 

If you like metallic eyeliners then, these are a fun thing to play around with. I might try the Extreme Blue and Extreme Purple next. Worth a try in my opinion.
