NYX Matte Liquid Liner Review

NYX Matte Liquid Eyeliner

Today I'm reviewing the Matte Liquid Liner from NYX, I am always on the lookout for a new black liner to create a crisp perfect wing and I heard great things about this particular one so why not share my opinion. This is a matte black liquid liner with a brush tip that costs £6.00 and contains 2ml of product.

Over the years I have realised that I prefer liquid eyeliner with a brush tip as opposed to a felt tip liner, I struggle to get as much control and smooth lines with a felt tip applicator. This was one of the main reasons I decided to give this particular eyeliner a try. This eyeliner is richly pigmented and gives a strong black line which dries down to a matte finish (this does also come in a vinyl formula if you prefer a more glossy look), it has a very liquidy formula so just make sure you take any excess product off the brush to avoid applying too much. The eyeliner applies easily and gives a very smooth line, you have a few seconds to work with the product before it dries down to get the perfect look. One of the things I love most about this eyeliner is just how much use you can get out of this liner, a little goes a long way and the product doesn't dry out, I bought this months ago and I still haven't had to repurchase a new one but I can confirm I will definitely be repurchasing in the future!

The eyeliner also lasts really well on the eyes, it does sometimes fade on the liner corner of the eyes which is probably the only comment I can make against this product but it's not a major issue, if I am perhaps going out for the night and need it to last I will just make sure I pack it in my bag for any touch-ups.

 I have been creating winged eyeliner looks for years and have no trouble with this eyeliner but if you are a beginner or struggle with liquid eyeliners you may need to put in a little practice before you get the hang of using this product. Liquid eyeliners are intimidating but this product is such a great price that I think it's a great option for anyone just starting out. 
I have tried out a few products from NYX and this is one of my absolute favourites, I highly recommend this to anyone who, like me, loves a liner with a brush tip applicator (if you prefer a felt tip I think you may struggle a little).

Overall I think this is a great product that's worth every penny, it has become a new staple in my make-up collection and I will 100% be repurchasing in the future!
