◀◁◀ Hey there ▶▷▶
I’ve been longing to try out this eyeliner! I’m just a huge sucker for light eyeliners and there is nothing I can do about it…
I was hooked by the Faux Whites Eyeliner right after the first application ♥ It’s just AWESOME!
Now I’d like to tell you all details about it
◀◁◀ Description ▶▷▶
❤ Price: $8
❤ Where to buy: on the NYX official website
❤ Shade: The eyeliner is available in 8 supercool shades. I want ALL OF THEM, I mean it! I have it in the shade №3 Linen, pink.
All hues have a hint of white.
In terms of the package, it’s typical. The whole range of ‘white’ eyeliners is a stunner. All the eyeliners have the same style. In addition, the length and thickness of each pencil is the same.
❤ Weight: 1.3 g
Initially the eyeliner was packed in a protective brand film. I had a little bit of a hard time removing it, but I love when packages have it, so it’s definitely a huge plus!
By the way, it’s not a twist-up pencil, so you have to sharpen it, which is also a good thing for me, because twist-up pencils may sometimes go down while applying. It won’t happen with the FAUX WHITES EYE BRIGHTENER, however
It sharpens with a normal sharpener without any effort.
❤ Shelf life: 24 months after unpacking
Made in France
The product description is readable, even though it has small print! ⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆
The crayon is very soft, which is really important to me! I guess we all know such eyeliners that are sometimes so coarse, that it’s hard to figure out, if they are meant for eyes or actually for writing! This eyeliner is very nice to use. You just draw a line on your upper eyelid and feel very comfortable!
However, no matter how hard you try to sharpen it, you won’t get super sharp lines.
These are the thinnest lines I could get:
Some of you may say that the product is not meant for lines, and will actually be right. Nevertheless, I would call it a very MULTI-FUNCTIONAL eyeliner!
The eyeliner can be applied not only to the waterline, which makes my eyes visually bigger and my look prettier...
… But also to the upper eyelid!
More than that, it can be used as a base eyeshadow color, applied to the whole upper eyelid, because it doesn’t crease throughout the day, which is not usually the case with some eyeshadows.
HOWEVER, it won’t go far then, so I don’t use it as an eyeshadow!
Now to the main advantage of this eyeliner!
The eyeliner is really long-lasting! It’s the first time I use such an eyeliner that wouldn’t come off from my waterline ALL DAY! Magic?
If you rub your eyes, everything will smear including eyeshadow, mascara and even eyebrows, but the eyeliner will be firm in place! Moreover, it’s waterproof! Pouring rain? OK! The eyebrows may flow, but not the lines
However, it doesn’t stick for good.
You can easily take it off with any makeup remover or a cleanser + a cotton pad when required.
This is how it looks at the end of the day. I put on makeup in the morning and took this picture at about 9 p.m. Sorry, I took it by a very poor lamplight.
So, it means that I’ve been wearing the eyeliner for 12 hours! My face looks like a greasy pancake here and the foundation flows, but the eyeliner looks really decent still!
I definitely give 5 stars to the staying power.
Also, I liked that it is easy to use. You don’t have to be really precise to apply it. Even the person with all thumbs will do it.
As you might have noticed, I’m no makeup guru. More than that, it’s even hard for me to apply makeup, but when I use this eyeliner everything looks alright and wearable!
◀◁◀ Final verdict ▶▷▶
All in all, I’m really pleased with this eyeliner.
When used only for the waterline, the makeup looks really pretty. Plus, when you know something more about makeup, you can make your eyes look even bigger with this eyeliner. Moreover, you can use it as eyeshadow or for drawing lines…
The use is not restricted, so get creative. You can create a good deal of various looks with this pencil. I’m not much into all NYX products, because some of them are honestly bad, but the FAUX WHITES EYE BRIGHTENER is awesome!
Highly recommended! As for me, I will definitely buy some more shades to try out ❤
Thanks everyone for stopping by! I hope that my review was helpful for you.
