Nyx Slim Eye Pencil in Teal: Swatch, Review

I bought this from CherryCulture a few months back while hunting for the perfect teal. Its been a long search and now I realise that I’m laden with a huge number of green liners..hehe…I’ve been using this for 2-3 months now and thought it’s the perfect time to review it for you.

Product Claim:

  • Price:INR 300 or $ 3.50

Ingredients:

Sorbitan Isostearate, Isocetyl Stearate, Polyethylene, Phenyl Trimethicone, Candelilla Cera, Butyrospermum Parkii Butter Unsaponifiables, Cera Alba, Simmondsia Chinensis Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Nylon-12, Octyldodecanol, Polyglyceryl-2-Diisostearate, Silica, Cera Carnauba, Hydrogenated Coconut Oil, Tocopherol, PVP/Hexadecene Copolymer, Stearakonium Hectorite, Stearyl Glycyrrhetinate, Propylparaben, Propylene Carbonate

My take on the product:

  • Packaging:This pencil requires sharpening and has a sturdy lid which doesn’t get loose too easily. The pencil does have the corresponding color tab at the bas which makes it easy to identify when stored in bunches.

  • Color: The name of the shade is TEAL….Girls, does this shade remote LOOK like a teal????? Or am I colorblind?? This is so obviously not a TEAL….Infact, its a light milky green shade which is totally matte.
  • Pigmentation & Texture: This liner is decently pigmented but not super creamy. It does tug a little but nothing too inconvenient or abrasive to the skin. I need to swipe this about 2-3 times to get the desired intensity on my lids.

  • Staying Power: This liner is no exception to the other NYX liners I have. They are again very long staying and will be there on your lids even when you return home after 6-7hrs of work.
  • Usage: This color is a bit light for me to use alone on my lids. It does look nice when I wanna make my eyes seem larger but it looks best when combined with another liner in a darker shade. I like layering this with black as shown here or even along with the NYX Emerald City liner reviewed earlier.

  • Good pigmentation
  • Staying power is commendable.
  • Will last a long time.
  • Is a perfect shade for layering.
  • Lid is sturdy and doesn’t go loose after multiple uses also.
  • Easy on the pocket.
