Almost any makeup look I like to compliment with wings. I usually do them with an eye pencil, gel eyeliner, or liquid liners. And I was living a happy life with my liquid eyeliner, until one day on the pages of one magazine, I saw makeup done with a matte liquid liner. From that day on, my life has changed completely and I started longing for a matte liquid liner for me too. I really needed it and needed it urgently!
Recently I was presented with a NYX PROFESSIONAL MAKEUP certificate where I actually bought some products including this liquid liner.
So, this is the full name of the product I bought:
Matte Liquid Liner Traceur Liquide Mat NYX PROFESSIONAL MAKEUP
Line and define with expert precision using our Matte Liquid Liner. A makeup artist must-have for bold and classic looks the precision brush tip allows you to effortlessly achieve an ultra-fine and exquisite matte finish.
The product is made of plastic and it was initially packed in a carton box:
On the packaging you can easily read all the information about the expiration date, manufacturer, ingredients etc.
List of ingredients:
Water/Aqua/Eau, Propylene Glycol, Acrylates/Octylacrylamide Copolymer, Acetyl Tributyl Citrate, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Triethylhexyl Trimellitate, Triethyl Citrate, Ethyl Lactate, Xanthan Gum, Hectorite, Cellulose, PPG-26-Buteth-26, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Citric Acid, Disodium EDTA, Aminomethyl Propanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Phenoxyethanol. MAY CONTAIN / PEUT CONTENIR (+/-): Iron Oxides (CI 77499), Black 2 (CI 77266) [Nano].
The applicator is actually a small brush (not a fiber tip which I really hate)
The brush is thin, long and elastic. Thanks to this, I can easily line my eyes on the first try.
It’s very pleasant to apply the product on my eye, as it doesn’t leave streaks or imprints on the upper lid. It dries out very quickly and becomes totally matte.

My experience with the NYX Matte Liquid Liner and general impressions:
I’ve been using it for about 2 weeks, I know that it’s a short period of time but I’m so much in love with it that I couldn't wait for any longer and not to share my opinion about it with you.
The product is easy to apply over dry, cream or liquid eyeshadow.
If you have normal eyelid skin (not oily), then the liner will stay on well and will not travel down. In summer my skin becomes oily and each time before this liner application, I powder my lids. Otherwise, it’ll travel and feather.
Matte finishes makes my makeup look sophisticated and interesting. It especially looks cool if I use matte products all over my face.
As it turned out, the matte liner accentuates small wrinkles and fine lines on my eyes. Since I’m 25, I’m slightly concerned about this factor.
Matte liquid Liner Traceur Liquide Mat is extremely long lasting. No rain, wind, water, or hurricane will ever affect its staying power. Even if you get caught in the rain, you can be sure that this liner will stay in its place.
I want to pay your attention to the fact that the manufacturer doesn’t mention that the product is water-resistant. For an experiment I went to bed with my eye makeup on (I know that’s bad but that’s only for you, my dear readers, and for the sake of the experiment). I was so curious of what would happen with my makeup and I found out that after 36 hours of wearing, there was only my mascara crumbling a little bit but the liner stayed put. Even my favorite Maybelline Color Tattoo eyeshadows didn't last as long.
How to remove:
That’s a small problem, indeed. You’ll never wash the product off with water. Only makeup remover or oil infused micellar water can remove this liner totally. Most frequently I use micellar water and like the result. I usually do it the following way: I wet two cotton pads with micellar water, then press them against my eyes for about a minute and then take them off. One minute is just enough for the liner to start dissolving under the pad with micellar water.
If you adore wings as much as I do, then you definitely should try the Matte liquid Liner Traceur Liquide Mat by NYX. I’m sure that you’ll love it.
