As this post goes live I’ll be wandering round the fabulous streets of Amsterdam with Jake (I’m so excited!). We went to Paris on our city break last year on exactly the same week and had the most magical time and Jake bought us this trip as my birthday present so I’m hoping we’ll have just as wonderful a time this year. I’ve never written a travel post but I may just do one when we get back so you can have a snoop at our adventures. Moving on…
More chit chat about colourful products today from the fabulous brand NYX, this time about eyeliners though. As we’re approaching Autumn, we’re starting to see the trending colours this year emerging in bursts of red, yellow and pink in everything from shoes to eyeshadow. Definitely all bold statements in most shades but can still be paired with the classic fall favourite, the berry lip.
NYX have a stunning range of ‘Vivid Brights’ eyeliners in all sorts of popping coloured shades from electric blue to canary yellow. They aren’t particularly new products at all, I purchased the red one as soon as NYX properly hit the UK (earlier this year I believe?) but only started using it super recently when experimenting with the coloured mascaras, became a little obsessed and decided to invest in a few more to mix things up and keep my makeup exciting.
Already having the red, I got myself the pink and the yellow and then Jake got me the green one too as he said he thought it’d matched my eyes nicely (cute).
As for the formula, some of them can go a bit flakey or crack if you go over the top of where you’ve already applied the liner which isn’t the best but despite that, they are actually super long-wearing and don’t move all day.
Here are a few looks I’ve created with them too…
(I haven’t yet tried the yellow but keep your eyes peeled on my Instagram for when I do!)
Overall, for £5.50 per liner I’d say they’re pretty decent and worth the money as they have a lot of product in them, are easy to apply and allow you to experiment widely with all sorts of looks. Personally I would prefer if they did them in pen form too as I find these kinds of liners so much easier to get a sharp flick and neat line with.
I would love to pick up the blue and purple ones next, I think they might possibly be on my list for my christmas stocking! Would any of you wear or experiment with these or are they a bit a bold for your day to day makeup wardrobe and more of a festival statement?
