My experience with NYX Retractable Eyeliner 06 Gold:
I mostly prefer retractable eyeliners over pencil ones because of ease of usage; it does not demand sharpening and does not accidently hurt my eyes which is the case with improper sharpening of eyeliner pencils. Also, since it is nyx which is a popular and good quality brand I picked eyeliners from this range online.
NYX Retractable Eyeliner 06 Gold is the gold color. Festive occasions are not complete without wearing gold you know and sometimes I want to add a dash of gold to my eye makeup with just a line of gold on my lower lash line or corner. For that I wanted gold eyeliner and this one serves just right. It is the classic gold shade without much shimmers; I mean you will not see any chunky glitters after application. It is neither a sparkling gold nor dull gold- just as I wanted.
The application is easy and you can glide it on your eyes for a smooth application. It is soft, creamy and does not tug. If I quote colorbar i-glides for reference, these are less creamy but that is fine for me. Do not twist up the eyeliner so much otherwise it may be break while application- that is the case with all retractable eyeliners.
The best part is that it is smudge proof, water proof and does not budge at all. It is really long lasting as it says. Once it sets, it will not smudge or wear off even with vigorous rubbing; not that you would do that to your eyes but just saying.
You run water over it; it will still not ditch you. So when you know you are going to cry at the wedding- wear these. It stays put as long as you want.
Another thing- it is waterline safe. I tend to touch the waterline while lining the lower lash line quite often and it does not cause any irritation at all.
Packaging wise also, it is good and the cap fits snugly but it is too thin for my liking. I just wish the plastic body and the eyeliner bullet- both were thicker.
So, over all these are real good deal if you like retractable eyeliners and want them to not budge at all. Also, we see water line safe gold eyeliners very rare so you can pick this up for that purpose as well.
I use it as an eye shadow base also at times. Color the lid with this one, blend in the harsh edges and then pack another golden or similar powder eye shadow on top of it to make it long lasting.
What I like about NYX Retractable Eyeliner 06 Gold:
- Pretty gold color.
- No wastage or hurting the eyes with sharp edges as in case of pencils.
- Smudge proof.
- Water proof.
- Lasts for 8 hours or you can try for even more than that.
- No offensive smell.
- Very affordable.
- Water line safe.
What I don’t like about NYX Retractable Eyeliner 06 Gold:
- The bullet is thin for my liking.
- Nyx products are not easily available.
Until next time take care!
