After reviewing three shades-Burnt Sienna, Oxblood and Midnight from NYX faux blacks eyeliner range, I went on and bought a couple of other shades. In this post, I will be sharing my views on the shade “Blackberry”. Let’s get into the details.
The go-to goodie in every beauty’s makeup bag? A little black liner, of course! Inspired by this enduring essential, the new Faux Blacks collection puts a bold twist on a classic that will forever be a chic choice. Available in eight deep matte shades with a hint of rich color—from midnight blue to dark olive—these striking eyeliners are creamy and go on smooth, which makes drawing a precise line or smudging it out totally simple.
Isododecane, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Dimethicone, polyethylene, synthetic wax, silica, Polybutene, alumina, Stearalkonium Hectorite, talc, propylene carbonate, Caprylic/Capric triglyceride, polyglyceryl-4 Diisostearate/Polyhydroxystearate/Sebacate. May contain / put contenir (+/-): titanium dioxide (ci 77891), iron oxides (ci 77491, ci 77492, and ci 77499), chromium oxide greens (ci 77288), ferric ammonium Ferrocyanide (ci 77510), manganese violet (ci 77742), red 40 lake (ci 16035), and ultramarines (ci 77007)
My Experience with NYX Faux Blacks Eyeliner Blackberry:
NYX Faux Blacks Eyeliner Blackberry comes in a regular sleek and sharpenable pencil form. The pencil is black coloured with details written in white and has a colour-coded end. The colour-coded end helps in picking up the desired shade without going thoroughly in the stash. The pencil itself bears all important information regarding the product. It has no outer cardboard packaging but comes sealed with cellophane to prevent tampering. This is a sharpenable pencil, but no sharpener has been provided with it. Overall, the packaging is easy to work with and travel-friendly too.
The shade Blackberry is defined as deep amethyst. It is a beautiful purple shade. It is a true deep dark shade which can be intensified by applying multiple stokes. It is a perfect shade if you want deep and dark color for your waterline. These eyeliners are perfect to achieve monochromatic eye look.
Apart from Blackberry, there are 7 other shades: Burnt Sienna (deep burgundy), Onyx (deep teal), Oxblood (dark red), Black Olive (deep olive), Obsidian (deep indigo), midnight (deep blue), and Black Hole (deep purple).
The pigmentation of blackberry is very rich with good color payoff. It almost provides opaque finish in a single swipe or stroke. In a couple of swipes, it provides full pigmentation. The pigment can be intensified as it is easily buildable. You can get more and more deep and rich shade with more clean and neat strokes.
This eyeliner is very creamy and glides effortlessly. I don’t have to drag to draw a stroke. This eyeliner is creamy yet it sets to a pure matte finish. It takes a few seconds to dry and settle down, which gives me the time to smudge it if I want.
Like the other shades from faux blacks range, this shade also crumbles while smudging. But as soon as it dries off, there is no crumbling. Moreover, if I rub my eye, the pigment comes off and the eyeliner look a bit faded on upper lash line, though it is not an issue for waterline. I love using Maybelline Gel Eyeliners but they make my eyes watery if applied too close to the waterline, plus they get easily smudged on my lash line. However, the formula of these eyeliners does not make the eye watery and that’s why I love these so much. I can use these eyeliners on the waterline as well as on the lash line.
Once it’s set, it is water-resistant and smudgeproof. It stays intact all day long without making eyes uncomfortable or watery. If I rub my eyes a bit hard, then it may come off a little bit, but does not look smudged or patchy at all. As a product for the water line, it is awesome eyeliner that does not come off on its own easily. It does not irritate the eyes either. As the lash line product or regular eyeliner also it works ok. Unlike Burnt Sienna, blackberry does not look streaky at all no matter how many strokes I use. At the end of the day, it is not difficult to remove from upper lash line, but it is a bit of work while removing from lower lash line.
Pros of NYX Faux Blacks Eyeliner Blackberry:
- Sleek packaging.
- Smooth texture.
