[REVIEW and SWATCH] Nyx Retractable Eyeliner in Brown #Sociolla

Who doesn't love eyeliner!
Eyeliner will help you 'shape' your eyes with drawing various lines which will transform your eyes into something you desired. Any eye shape can be achieved with eyeliner. If you have natural small eye shape and you want to make your eyes look bigger, eyeliner would definitely just be your best friend! Or neither way if you want to make your eyes look smaller. This might work too! ;)

Eyeliner comes in different types of form and colours.
And today I will be reviewing one of the forms. Is not the gel or brush or liquid eyeliner. It is the crayon retractable eyeliner from NYX.

It is available in many shades. White, Black, Aqua Green, Brown (MPE04 which is mine), Silver, Gold, Lime Green, Silky Cashmere, Turquoise Blue, Grey, Purple, Pink, Blue Eyes, Deep Blue, Bronze, Golden Olive, Deep Purple amd Gypsy Blue.

NYX Cosmetics, named after the ancient Greek goddess who ruled the night, uniquely offers a permanent collection of special-occasion makeup in addition to a solid selection of every day basics and on-trend shades.
NYX was founded by a young and talented entrepreneur named Toni K who was involved in color cosmetics for years and has always desired to create and share a line of cosmetics that provided quality products at approachable prices.

I received this from Sociolla. As you can see on my first picture above, my product was delivered nicely with a simple eyebrow drawing tips. :)
So far so happy with Sociolla's service. :) 

About this crayon eyeliner's shape, the diameter is standard. Not too big and not too slim. Good enough to tightline the eye or making a rough winged eyeliner. 

On the image above, as you can see the color is pigmented enough and it is buildable without being too cakey. Yes it is smudged, but that's because I wiped it right after I applied it on my hand. But after several seconds, the creamy texture became a bit drier and it became real smudge proof! ^_^ Happy about it!
And yes, it is long lasting enough because I used this to tightline my eyes for a natural look and it stayed there from am till pm without turning my eyes into panda eyes. xD

Taken with my phone camera after using this eyeliner for about 4 hours. <3
And until I went home (with total wear time about 6 hours) it was still good!
*anw I mixed it a bit with black brush eyeliner to make it even tidier (Using Secret Kiss Skinny Quick Eyeliner) ._.

  • Waterproof (tested it under running water)
  • Smudge proof (after the creamy crayon settle on your skin first for several seconds)
  • Does not need any sharpener
  • Does not irritate or sting my eyes 
  • Intense and pigmented colour
  • Comes in many shades
  • Reasonable price
  • Animal cruelty free
  • Long lasting

  • Expiry date after opening: 12 months

Cons: So far nothing ;)

If you want to try this great product, you can purchase it from Sociolla. Authentic, great service and worry-free! <3
Choose the shade you want!
You can use the white one to highlight the waterline, or latte or brown shade to give a soft accent to decorate the eyes or the black one to give you the magic to reshape your eyes beautifully!

    1. Iya ya ^^ smudge proofnya itu loh..
      Thanks for stopping by! :)

  2. Waterproof dan smudgeproof penting banget untuk sebuah eyeliner dan keduanya ada di NYX retractable ini, Jadi pengen coba yang warna Hitam :)


    1. Iya bener. Dan warna hitam warna dasar yang pasti banyak digunakan ya. :D

  3. I have a love hate relationship with retractable eyeliner. They are convenient enough but once broken there is no way to fix it. But this brown colour is perfect brown.

  4. you have really pretty eyes! i've long given up on using eyeliners as the folds at the inner corners of my eyes give me half monolid+half double lids. it's impossible to draw any sort of line there. :(

  5. wow really smudge proof???so far not much eyeliner can be smudge proof...mayb on hand but on eyes when there's oil sure will smudge...

  6. Thanks for sharing dear! NYX is always my go to products :)

  7. I have used these eyeliners before and they are pretty good, no complaints about them.

    Great Review!!
