NYX Matte Liquid Liner – £5.50.
I’m not one for donning a cat eye or winged liner everyday, I tend to reserve that for evenings and nights out but when I do opt for a more dramatic eye make up look, I rely on a heavy duty black liquid liner with a decent amount of staying power. I normally reach for my much loved Guerlain Liquid Eyeliner but I have been on the hunt for a cheaper, more budget friendly alternative – enter NYX Matte Liquid Liner. I was perusing Instagram a few weeks back, as you do, and I came across a gorgeous eye make up look from the extremely talented Depeche Gurl and when I was looking at the product information, she had tagged this particular eye liner and from then on, I knew that I had to have it. I went straight to the Boots website and at the click of a button, it made its way to me.
I love how liquid eyeliner can create the neatest, cleanest, and most crisp lines. I definitely prefer liquid eyeliner over gel and pencil for sure. NYX Matte Liquid Liner is part of the NYX Collection Noir eye liner range and it comes with a very thin and elongated brush that you dip in to the eyeliner ink (is it even ink? I’m going to call it ink anyway) and away you go – my favourite type for easy, precise and tidy application. None of this felt tip pen malarkey. The formula of this eye liner is incredible – it is super pigmented, intensely black, incredibly fast drying and it settles in to the most gorgeous bold matte finish that just does not budge. When I say it doesn’t budge, I mean that it doesn’t budge – not one inch. What I love most is that I don’t get any of that annoying transfer on the top of your eye lids that makes you look like you’ve gone a few rounds with Mike Tyson. That is without a doubt my eyeliner peeve. It is ideal for nights out as it definitely withstands just about any condition you can throw at it and it remains absolutely perfect. Prepare to have some heavy duty eye make up remover in your Arsenal for this stuff. It performs just as well as my beloved Guerlain, creating bold, classic looks but for a fraction of the price. This little baby only costs £5.50 and it is pretty damn awesome.
