My Always Keeping it Tight akit03 nude is so hard and sharp I can't get it to apply to my eyes. Any tips?

Asked by: Patricia123
Hi Patricia! We are so glad you are trying our Always Keepin' It Tight Eyeliner. We recommend swiping it on the back of your hand a few times to warm the tip and then apply to your eye. We hope you love it! xoxo

You used to make a skinny retractable eyeliner, BEL05, that I love and cant find anymore. Is this the closest replacement for that one? I tried the other retractable one you make and I didn't really care for it. Please help. TY.

Asked by: Reeebz
Hi Reeebz! Thank you for inquiring about our Eyeliner! We suggest to try our Always Keepin&rsquo; It Tight Eyeliner, it is a great product that is similar to the Skinny Retractable Eyeliner! This retractable pencil serves up a soft and silky finish that won&rsquo;t budge for the ultimate tightline effect. Thank you!

Whats the difference between using this to tightline and the retractable liner? Also which is better for humid places?

Asked by: Hwii808
Hi! A retractable liner you do not need a sharpener for, it is twist up. Either are good for humidity. We suggest using a primer before for an even longer lasting application. Perhaps the HD Eye Shadow Base. Check it out here: http://tinyurl.com/ycxcqwwp

I just use this eyeliner for 2 weeks and someday the product won't come out. I've tried to turn it down and turn it up again but it still won't come out. so what do I do?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Poor product So disappointed in this product. Does not glide on easily and you have to apply heavy pressure against eyeliner just to attempt to get some on. The policy is no refunds for opened items, but, I called corporate received a check and was able to keep product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for hooded eyes This product is great for drawing a thin layer of eyeliner on my hooded eye. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best tightliner ever This is an excellent tight liner. The color stays all day and it didn't bother my sensitive eyes. There are so many eye liner pencils that I throw away after one use, but this is a keeper. I got navy and now I want to try more colors. I'm happy to find everything NYX here and give more of their excellent products a go.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth $10 I bought this thinking it was a different liner that I’ve worn before, turns out it was not the same one. Since I needed eyeliner, I decided to try it. This thing is terrible for the waterline, there is barely any color. Also not a fan of how thin it is. This was a waste of money. I wish I could find the one I used to use, that one actually worked. :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for Eyes & For Eyebrow Texture I keep rebuying this item in Nude, I sometimes use it for eyeliner, sometimes to tighten my lips shape, but I mostly use it to create dimension on my eyebrows. You know, when you add color to your brows and they become a block of color? With this, I can add some light strokes to make the brows multi-dimesnional and more realistic. I just love it! The only thing is, I think it is a bit expensive, for the amount of product you get.
