NYX: The Curve Eyeliner

Did you know that NYX part of NYX Cosmetics is pronounced like ‘nicks’? I’ve always called it that but I have heard others refer to it by spelling out the letters. Well, I got it directly from NYX public relations that it is pronounced out and is named after the Greek goddess of the night.

This is one of NYX’s new items…

NYX calls this ‘The Curve’. It is an ergonomic-shaped liquid eyeliner. I have seen this on other blogs and I just wasn’t drawn to it. I don’t see how the bent shape would actually make it easier to apply my eyeliner.

However, after working with it, I take it all back. It rocks!…

How I was to hold it was intuitive for me, however, there is a photo on the side to demonstrate.I’m ambidextrous so it is made easy for both lefties and righties.

It is a funky-looking creature…

And, I have never used anything like ‘The Curve’ before. But in no time, I was making a fabulous winged look and the point allows me to make a very fine line…

The point is very much like a firm felt-tip pen. I prefer a firm point rather than a soft one. I can have the best of both worlds with a fine line or a thicker one. And, the black liner is precise, water resistant and lasts up to 14 hours. And, yes, it does last all day for me. There wasn’t a smudge, feathering or break in the line at all. That is a perfect eyeliner on my vanity.

This is just a single stroke across my forearm…

Here are some facts about NYX and this product: They are cruelty-free, their packaging is recyclable, and it has no paraben or formaldehyde in it.

There is only one caveat about it…

The top needs to go on a precise way. I would recommend paying close attention to that so you don’t run the risk of having your fancy-smancy eyeliner drying up on you. And, I guess there are two caveats: it only comes in black. I would love to see this in a brown, green and purple.

The Vanity loves this eyeliner and is happy to have it as part of the beauty look. Have you tried ‘The Curve’ yet?

    Such an interesting turn…. ahh… I was trying to say something funny and it didn’t work for me. Looks cool though! 🙂 Thanks for sharing

    • Hee hee! Good one, Laura!!! 😀

  • Toni Ko said that if it does well she’ll expand the colors… eventually.

    • That would be cool. Do you like yours?
