I just started wearing contacts almost a year ago and was wondering if this product is okay to wear with contacts?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It peals off I don’t know what’s happening, I use to love this liner since there’s not a lot of liners out there with this type of brush.. It tends to peel off and it looks cracked when I apply it I don’t like it any more
Date published: 2020-01-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweat proof! I have very oily skin and my face sweats a lot and I would hate when my other eyeliners smudged on my eyelid but this one works miracles! I wore it to a night out and it didn’t budge at all, definately buying this again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go to Eyeliner This is the only liquid liner that I ever use for my make up. I always get the sharpest lines, because the brush is perfect for the wings I create. I’m always buying this eyeliner. I can’t change, haha!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ride or die Everything I need. Stays put through the repetitive drenching of my face that comes with grooming dogs. Peels off rather than running so no ghostly eyes or stained skin. The matte finish looks expensive and the brush makes the perfect tight lines and flicks. I've purchased four tubes in the last few months cause I never want to run out again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from @Boldwinged So I wear bold winged eyeliner every day. I’ve tried a range of eyeliners from Kat Von D to elf. This is the best one I’ve found. It does not smudge, and (I know you’re not supposed to) when I fall asleep with my make up on, my eyeliner is still perfectly in place. I only use this liner and every Black Friday I make sure to stock up

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always my favorite, I give it out as gift too! Long lasting, totally matte, beautiful deep black, and priced right... what else can one want? I make it last extra long when I know I will be dancing and perspiring by spraying the matte setting spray from NYX, it makes my whole eye make up almost waterproof :D

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don’t get discouraged After reading the comments below about some bad experiences, I was iffy about this purchase but I was going to try and see for myself. Ever since I have ran out of my favorite liquid eyeliner (got discontinued:( ) I was on a hunt for the next best eyeliner and this is it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very sad to change Really sad I have used Nyx eyeliner for quite a long time now but it seems they have changed their formula or something. Now it doesn’t last for a whole day when it used to.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I wish it was waterproof :( I LOVE eyeliners SPECIALLY matte ones. My eyes Are sensitive so with wind my eyes get watery and I bought this eyeliner because a lot of people love it. So I bought it wore it and fell in love with it. Come out of my house and the air made my eyes watery and there goes the liner down my face :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always been a Fav! Easy application, goes over eyeshadow well and stays on all day. Everything you would want in a liquid liner. The brush is flexible which I like because it allows me to achieve different winged looks with my liner.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The worst liquid eyeliner I've ever used I normally love NYX but oh lord this is terrible. It dries so tightly you can *feel* it, smudges insanely quickly and really weirdly (not just a bit of transfer to upper lid but full smear upwards) and then, to add insult to injury is really hard to remove (it smudges quickly but won't budge when you want it to, how do you manage THAT?). I've tried several times, with different eye makeup, just in case, but it's going in the bin and I've wasted my money.
Date published: 2019-08-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go to, always! I get so many compliments on my eyeliner. It’s matte, thin and easy to apply. Stays on all day and washes off easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE BEST MATTE EYELINER I've used about 6 popular brand eye liners since I was about 15 and this is the first time that I've found a truly MATTE eye liner. If you're like me and for some reason don't like how other eyeliners leave a kind of shine after its dried (even though its supposed to be matte) then you'll most likely love this liner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The holy grail of liquid liners My search for the perfect liner has been a long one. I started as a teen by nabbing my mom's MAC liquid liner, but that was a disaster. It melted at the slightest sign of humidity and smeared like crazy. I tried some liners from other trusted high end brands, but they were never quite right. They smeared or they flaked or they made my eyelids feel stiff or heavy. I got Kat Von D's Tattoo Liner as a Christmas gift and liked that one, but it was pretty expensive and in addition, I don't really want to support Kat Von D with my money. NYX's Matte Liquid Liner is a great formula dupe for the Tattoo Liner, and the applicator is ten times better. This thin little brush allows for precision application. The formula dries quickly and I can't feel it on my eyelids. It holds up all day (unless my eyes water, but that's inevitable for a non-waterproof product) and never flakes off. Not to mention that with the low price, it's easy to buy one for my make up bag and one for my purse. I recommend this product to all of my friends!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING!!! I’ve been using this eyeliner for about 2 years and it’s still my favorite. Doesn’t smudge on the corners of my eyes and the color is so bold and noticeable. I strongly suggest this eyeliner if you’re looking for a good one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Liquid lovelys As a licensed esthetician I’m always trying new make up and i love the quality of the products for a sensible price!!! I’m obsessed with nyx liquid eye liner in white. The vibrancy of their electric pencil lip liners also impressed. (they work great for eye liners too)
