NYX COSMETICS Faux Black & Faux White Eyeliner Review!

NYX Cosmetics Faux Black Faux White Collection

HOLY CATS! I haven’t seen any information about these anywhere so I’m super excited to share my haul, review and mini tutorial of the new at the drugstore NYX Faux Black and Faux White eyeliner collections! I picked these up last week at Ulta, and I’ve spent a few days playing around with them and I can now say I ADORE THEM! At $8 dollars a pop these are a great deal. The deeper colors are elegant and easy to wear but are definitely not boring, while the pastels are a great alternative to white in your inner rim or to give your inner corner a little boost.  Most exciting- There’s both a RED and a BROWN-BURGUNDY!!! *jumping up and down with excitement* These types of colors are common from expensive luxury and artistry driven brands, so it’s encouraging to see this launch available from an affordable brand! A few of the pastel colors have Colourpop dupes, but the CP liners dried up on me really fast, and I tend to prefer a liner I can sharpen. In addition to swatched of these liners, I decided to also try layering the Kat Von D Alchemist powders over top just for fun! Wow- awesome combo! Bust out those Ulta point, use a coupon and check out these liners!

    Thanks Cora! I am fair skinned with blue eyes so I love watching your YouTube videos for inspiration. I just ordered 4 of the faux black pencils (including burnt sienna!!), and I cannot wait to use them. Your video and swatches were very helpful because the colors shown on the Ulta website aren’t that accurate (in my opinion). Can’t wait for more videos!

    Yes! I didn’t see “White Smoke.” Mine says “Lavender Blush.” Did you not get the same one I got?

    I had gotten the White Smoke on a whim. I love it. It’s a great waterline shade without being such a stark white. I want all of them. I just got Oxblood and Mint Creme and while I don’t know what I’m goign to pair them with, I’m just so happy to have them

    Oh my gosh! I saw these last night on the Ulta website & then looked at them in the store today but they didn’t have any testers. So, when I got home, I googled reviews & found your lovely video–thank you! You helped me make up my mind to pick up a few of them!
