Mark Liquid Shimmer Eyeliner and NYX Slide on Pencil Eyeliner



I have a quick review of two very different eyeliners, both very affordable brands that I love; Mark and NYX Cosmetics.  Quite honestly I have a ton of eyeliners, in fact too many to even admit, the reason why is because drugstore eyeliners are super affordable, and majority of them are of great quality!
 
The first liner comes from a brand which a lot of people are familiar with, it is the NYX Slide On Pencil Liner. This liner definitely slides on very smoothly without any tugging or discomfort, I believe because the consistency is a bit thin, this is probably why the liner does slide on very easily.  Because of this, the liner takes a while to dry (about 3-5 minutes) and although it is SUPER pigmented, the product itself didn’t last all day as I had hoped.  In addition, it does smudge a bit too easily a first, definitely doesn’t stay on with a bit of rubbing.  Also, the liner itself didn’t apply well over eyeshadow probably because of its thin consistency. 
I would only recommend this product for 3-4 hours of wear but overall I love the color and how smoothly it applies, therefore I will continue to use this liner, only on occasions where I plan to be out for a few hours at a time.
You can purchase this liner at the NYX site if  you click here for $8.00.


  The next liner is the Mark Earn Your Metal Liquid Shimmer Eyeliner.  The consistency of this product is very watery, in fact a bit too liquidy, therefore multiple layered application is required to build color, and it takes 4-5 minutes for the liner to dry. 
It is smudge proof once it dries which is actually pretty surprising for a liquid liner, rubbing will not impact this liner since it is there to stay once it is fully dried. I do like the shimmer look, I believe it adds a bit of fun and glam to any night time look; next time I believe I will purchase a darker color, simply because the gold is a bit hard to even see unless you pack on a lot of product! 
Overall, I would recommend this liner to anyone, simply because it is smudge proof, 
it is long lasting (a good day's worth), and it looks very fun and girly! I believe these go for about $6.50 from Avon/Mark, you can click here which will take you to that site.

Overall I love both brands, simply because I believe they are very affordable for the quality! What do you think about these liners? Have you tried either one?

  12. Love the NYX colors but idk if I'd try them. If they don't last all day, I probably won't. Unfortunately I don't have time to reapply most of the time. But the colors are awesome and the Mark liner looks cool.
