I got this eyeliner first because I asked all my coworkers who had sharp af wings which liner they used and they always referred me to this one. Before I would always use brush or pen liners like the Clio Black Liner (K-beauty) or the Sasa Liner (J-beauty) and I liked those both but I wanted to be able to buy my makeup in stores here and both of those I haven't been able to find. This NYX liner dries down super fast, doesn't lift, and is super pigmented. I like wearing eyeshadow and a lot of the time, black eyeliner doesn't show up as pigmented over the eyeshadow but this liner never fails. I ran out of the liner and decided to try the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner, but it dried out super fast and it didn't show up pigmented over my shadows as I wanted it to. It's easy to draw sharp and thin lines which is how I like my liner to look. I don't think I'll ever go back to another liner.

I use this every time that I do my makeup it really goes on nicely and it's very easy application I would recommend this products for anyone who is going very newly into makeup is very user-friendly and looks great, also the price is nice for what you get the only thing I would say is that sometimes you have to reapply it

I have practiced wings so many times with this product and this is like the O.G in my collection. I would look like a raccoon most days because of this liner. All jokes aside it works well. It dries well. I tend to stay away from eyeliner nowadays but if i go out and want a wing i will use this.

I don’t use eyeliners much and only prefer to have a thin line of eyeliner and not thick or winged eyeliner. This liner does exactly what I need it to do. Gives me a defined thin straight line and lasts long enough. This liner is not waterproof but doesn’t smudge so it works perfectly for me.

This liner is my staple and oh how I adore it. It is so reasonably priced, rich in pigment and matte as it could possibly be. I find these types of liquid liners so much easier to apply than the felt tip pens. For some reason I strayed from this product for about a month, somehow thinking the Elf $2 liquid liner was better. (Don't get me wrong, I love the Elf liner, just not as much as this) I'm so happy that many Walgreens' are now carrying Nyx so I don't have to make a trip out to Ulta which usually results in a depleted bank account. If you haven't tried this liquid liner I highly recommend it!

Next to the Physicians Formula liquid eyeliner this one is my favorite. I love it because it's different, it's not shiny it's matte and there are not too many liquid eyeliners that you find that are mad I used to use a black liquid liner and then take a stiff brow brush and take the blackest eyeshadow I could find and pack it right on top but ever since I found this I don't have to do that anymore. The formulation is great it last a long time and the brush is great as well the way they made the brush makes it very easy to do a wing liner which I know a lot of people struggle with. This one and the Physicians Formula are my two top favorites even over higher-end liners and they're both drugstore to go figure. Definitely worth a try

BEST DRUGSTORE LIQUID LINER. HANDS DOWN. It applies smoothly and dries down fast, matte, and waterproof. I wore it litterally all day and my wingered liner was still perfect. The craziest thing was as I was using a makeup wipe to remove my makeup at the end of the day, it was the last to come off... so while I didn't do water test, I doubt it would come off that easily in water.

I do have to say that this is probabaly not super beginner friendly. This applicator is super thin and precise, so you have to have a pretty steady hand especially on the wing. And being that it is a liquid liner, its a bit easier to mess up.

But overall, love this and definitely will purchase again.

Absolutely my favourite eyeliner! I have tried all the pro brands and still come back to this $8 treasure. It lasts so long and looks so vivid throughout wear. Easily comes off with my makeup remover (I use organic coconut oil) and the bottle lasts a long time

My favorite inexpensive liner at the drugstore. This is so very accessible to me always. The felt tip is great and helps me achieve a perfect wing always. I have bought this product multiple times in both matte and the shinier version and they're both great!

Is this really matte? Does it last the day and withstand smudging?
