NYX Glitzy Gold Slide On Eyeliner Pencil Review

 NYX Slide On, Glide On, Stay On, and Definitely a Turn On Eyeliner, aka the Slide On Pencil, is the creamiest pencil liner I've ever worked with. NYX says "don't let the softness of this eyeliner pencil fool you. Silky soft, yet delivers a powerful, robust color to line the eyes. The formula doesn't smear or smudge, and provides extreme color. It's like a liquid liner in a pencil without the mess." NYX offers 18 shades, I have Glitzy Gold, which is described as a "pure gold." Each pencil contaisn 1.2g (.04 oz) and retails for about $8, which is a expensive compared to most of their other liners. NYX does not test on animals. This eyeliner was made in Germany. I purchased my pencil at Ulta, but NYX products can also be bought from the brand's website and a variety of e-tailers, and select drugstores.
NYX's Slide On pencils are traditional (need to be sharpened), wood pencils, coated to be the same color as the product inside. The pencil is topped with a black plastic cap that stays on well and hasn't cracked. These pencils are covered in information, the NYX logo, shade name and number, and a full ingredient list. 
 NYX says that this eyeliner is "so good the name has to be this long". No, NYX. Don't be silly. No eyeliner need an eleven word long name. But really though, this eyeliner's formula is amazing. When NYX said they "slide on, glide on", they really do! Wow, is this pencil creamy. I hate using pencil liners on my upper lash line, they always have an uncomfortable pull to them, but not NYX's Slide On Pencil. The formula feels kinda like a gel eyeliner. The tip of this pencil is also too soft, it tends to break off at the very top, so you'll need to sharpen more often than you do with drier pencils. A lot of bloggers compare NYX Slide On pencils to Urban Decay's 24/7 pencils, but I find the NYX liners significantly creamier. The formula of NYX's Slide On pencils is waterproof, which is uncommon among pencil liners. The waterproof formulation really helps this eyeliner to stay put, no smudging or fading, it's even kinda hard to remove. If you plan to smudge your Slide On pencil, work fast, it sets in a matter of seconds.
 I love gold eyeliner and eyeshadow; it's probably the shade that works best with my dark brown eyes. I also feel like gold eyeliner is so versatile, they can be used with a bright look or to liven up a neutral look. Glitzy Gold is a very intense, metallic, bright gold. Pure gold was the perfect description. Despite it's very metallic finish, Glitzy Gold doesn't contain any noticeable flecks of shimmer or glitter. This is my new favorite gold eyeliner.
NYX's Glitzy Gold Slide On Eyeliner is fabulous. This is my new favorite eyeliner, I've been reaching for it almost every day. The formula is so good; smooth, creamy, pigmented, and long lasting. What's not to like? This eyeliner is reasonably priced, but a tad more expensive than other NYX liners. I recommend this eyeliner, especially in the shade Glitzy Gold. I'll definitely repurchase this eyeliner and I plan on trying a few more shades. I love finding a new favorite eyeliner.

  1. I've loved this eyeliner so so much since I got it! I think NYX's formula also works really great on the waterline.
