Not long ago, I purchased this eyeliner from Ulta during their BOGO 50% off sale. I was intrigued and curious to find out if this marker eyeliner was going to end my search for the perfect marker eyeliner.
- This liner comes in a marker-type packaging with a short and fine felt tip applicator. I like that the tip is very thin, which is great for precision application. Although the tips isn't too soft or stiff, it's a bit too short for my liking because I have to do several short strokes in order to line my eyes.
- .036 oz or 1.1 ml
- Carbon Black is a pretty deep and saturated black that looks matte as it dries.
- Judging from the swatch itself, you may be able to tell already that this liner was dry. It didn't have much juice in it, which made the application a pain. The felt tip was tugging and skipping, resulting in uneven application. I tried shaking it to see if that helped but it didn't. Needless to day, I didn't have any luck at making this liner look half decent on my eyes. It feels too dry and it was just too complicated trying to get a straight line.
- When I swatched it on my hand, it wasn't half as bad and when I did the rub test, it smudged just a bit so overall, it was holding strong.
Once again, I am being let down by another marker eyeliner. I've had pretty much no luck with these type of applicators. They would make eyeliner a breeze to apply but I've yet to find one that flows flawlessly. I think it's time I call it quit. NYX Super Skinny Marker Carbon Black is too dry, skippy, and difficult to get a straight line due to the lack of juice. Not worth the price. I need to return this.
