NYX Slide On EyeLiner in Black Sparkle Review, Swatch

Hello Girls,

Hope you are having a great time with the winters in full swing and Christmas just roubd the corner. I am super excited about the best Christmas Gift ever "SEPHORA", yes it is now open at Select CityWalk Saket for the uninitiated. Just hopin to visist it sooner than later and check out the goodies on offer.

So, to add all the glamour and sparkle to your party season this week, I present NYX Slide On EyeLiner in Black Sparkle. Read on to know more...

Price: INR 475 for 1.2 gm of the product. Packaging is standard pencil packaging, sharpenable hence hyginic and since the entire pencil is the color of the eyeliner it is easy to locate in your vanity as well.


As you can see from the swatch above the pencil is loaded with shimmers. It looks really sparkly when applied on the eyes and gives the perfect party eyes with just the right amount of shimmer. The shimmer in the pencil is not too gritty and equally distributed as you can see in the swatch above. Also, the pencil is decently pigmented.

Now coming to what I don't like about the pencil,it s definitely not a slide on, at least on my eyes, I tried everything, sharpening, warming the pencil on the back of my hands and what not, but the pencil is hard for my lids, though it delivers decent shimmer and pigmentation, the texture makes it necessary for me to sweep the pencil on my lids two-three times. Then there is the transferability factor, the pencil transfers to my crease after two hours even in this weather, so use of a primer is a must. Also, once you clean up the pencil from your lids, the shimmers travel and spread all over your eye area, which makes it a pain to remove them.

Overall, an okayish pencil for me but the price at which it retails in India is way too high compared to the quality offered.

Produst rating: B, available at some online shops and now at Sephora (I hear) would clarify once I have been there. Personally wouldn't buy this again.

Take care...


  1. 475!! I would rather get the Faces longwear pencil in Black Sparkle. Thank you for the review because I was actually browsing through a website and was wondering about this one.
