Review: NYX Slide On Eye Pencils

I had heard a lot about these eye-liners, so when I came across them at IMATS London I just had to give them a go! I swatched them then and there and was amazed at how smoothly they glide on! These liners are highly pigmented, little or no pressure is needed to achieve a super intense colour. They are waterproof and don't smear or smudge, perfect for the waterline. They are very comparable to the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye-liners but a lot more affordable, retailing at £6.50 in the UK and £8 in the US.

I purchased two of these fabulous liners at IMATS in the colours Gunmetal and Glitzy Gold. I had been wanting a gold liner for ages and this one was perfect. I could not find the black liner so opted for Gunmetal and am glad I did, it's not as harsh as pure black.

I have been using Gunmetal in my waterline everyday since I got it (hence the stubby end) and it stays all day, even through those long busy work days! I had such a problem with my previous pencil liner wearing away throughout the day but this is just perfect! They are also so easy to apply to the upper and lower lash lines and look great!

I will definitely be purchasing more of these liners as they are absolutely fabulous! I can't believe I didn't try them sooner! This is a big fat recommendation from me! :D

  1. I have three of these. I have the black, teal and pink, and I love them.

  2. I really want the gold one! I wish I had gone to IMATS now for that!

    1. I love the gold one! You can buy them online. Don't think there was much discount on them at IMATS.x
