NYX Gel Liner and Smudger

Gel liners are by far the easiest style of liner to apply. The more solid texture allows you to control the line more easily and as they dry super fast you won't have to worry about product transfer.

NXY promote this product as a smudger also. This means you can wear it as an eyeshadow. If you decide to use this as an eyeshadow you will need to work fast as it dries off quickly making the product hard to blend around.  I found it to dry a little patchy when used as an eyeshadow but it makes an excellent base to wear under other powder eye shadows to increase the vibrancy of the powder.
 When used as a base it also increases the longevity of the eyeshadow and prevents creasing or fading so a great base for an oily eye lid.

As an eye liner it applied easily, goes on smoothly and has a strong colour pay off. The strong colour is instant without having to layer it up.
 The teal and cobalt blue colours were intense and vibrant and the black covered well with a strong carbon black finish.
 The brown came out slightly more grey/brown.

Again it will dry quick so don't hang about. This is also waterproof so have an oily eye makeup remover and cotton bud at hand in case you need to correct a mistake and when removing at the end of the day.
 These liners will NOT MOVE once on so make sure you are using a really oily eye makeup remover to take them off to avoid pulling the skin around the eye too much.

These are available from 1st October 2013 at selected Next stores‎

  8. I really worry about product transfer on my lids so something like this would be perfect! However I think I will only be getting the black because I don't really know how to wear colour liners if that makes sense :/
