NYX Super Skinny Eye Marker
There was a time, back when I first started wearing eye makeup (this is high school but if mom asks, it was college), when I never even considered eyeliner. Then I started learning more about makeup, experimenting with makeup techniques. I learned that eyeliner is **essential**
! Eyeliner can make you look more awake. Eyeliner can make your eyelashes look thicker. I need to wear eyeliner, and now, it's unfathomable that there was a time I wasn't wearing eyeliner everyday.
Today to me, nothing is as dramatic and elegant as a beautiful lined eye. Gel, pencils, kohls, cake, powders... I love them all. One of my favorite types of eyeliner are pens. The reason why I like them is that you can get a super fine point and get really close to the lash line.
NYX has recently released two new felt tip eye liner markers. I purchased NYX Super Skinny Eye Marker to get close to my lashes and for more control. I purchased this to see how it would match up with my MAC version, MAC Penultimate Eye Liner
, $16.50 1.0g, 0.03oz. I was slightly disappointed with the MAC version. At first, I had a nice line, but after a couple applications, the MAC one dried out and lost the intensity. It was a pleasant surprised when I first swiped the NYX SSEM; it was SO inky black! It was so completely pigmented and black blackest black. I have had this eyeliner for over a month and no dry out so far. It's still as dark and dramatic as the day I took it out of box. Also it's almost half of the price of the MAC.
