Why I picked a liquid liner to be the first product I would try out from NYX, I really don't know, except it seemed like the only item I would actually use. My Lakme eyeliner is really old and needed replacement.
I have used this only a few times, but anyways, here's my take on it:
Liquid Eyeliner Comparison Review: Lakme Insta Liner (Black) Versus NYX Liquid Liner (Dark Brown)1. Cost: An affordable drugstore brand abroad, NYX seems to feel in India we won't mind paying a bit extra. Well, I did buy it, so maybe they are on to something :D Cost: Rs. 350. Since its "Made in Korea," which I thought was closer to India - travel distance - shouldn't it be cheaper in India than it is in the farther off USA?? :D :D Lakme eyeliner, on the other hand, is so old and ancient, I have no clue if this is even sold any more, but one thing I am sure of, it definitely did not cost me anything close to Rs. 350.
|Top: NYX has a longer wand that's more difficult for me to hold and use|
Bottom: Lakme has a smaller wand that is really much more convenient to use with it's design.
4. Waterproof test: NYX does not claim the product is waterproof, and it is not. A good thing only for me, I think. I am too lazy to use makeup removers and then wash my face. With this, it will all go off with just plain water and some soap. Lakme says water resistant on the bottle and stays on a tad longer and leaves a faint line after washing off with just water.
Verdict: The chances of me buying this product from NYX ever again? A big fat circular O for ZERO.
This might work for others, and I still like the almost black but actually brown shade. Its just not convenient to use for me.
