This reviews going to be short and to the point because I've had another crazy busy week. I subbed for second grade two days, and today I will be working with kindergarteners for the third day in a row. Little kids are sweet, but they are also exhausting!
If you are anything like me, you have heard and read a ton of rave reviews about the NYX Slide On Eye Pencils. They are supposed to be really good dupes for Urban Decay's 24/7 Liner Pencils.
I'd been meaning to pick one up to try out, but when I was looking at NYX eye liners in Ulta, I couldn't help but notice that the Slide On Pencils retail for $8 and NYX's Retractable Eye Liners only retail for $4.50. At nearly half the cost and getting a pencil that I don't have to sharpen, I couldn't resist.

I only picked up one shade, Bronze, but there are 16 colors total in this formulation.

The formula of this liner is really nice. It's soft and creamy without being too soft and creamy. It gives a little bit of play time for smudging before it sets, and it stays put throughout the day. I get some fading around the outer corners of my eyes, but I get that with nearly every liner that I own, so I don't worry too much about that.
With all of that being said, I'm really surprised that I haven't heard much about this line of liners before. I obviously can't compare it to the Slide-On Pencils since I haven't tried those, but it's hard to beat these retractable ones when I don't really have anything negative to say about them and are quite a bit cheaper.
Have you tried the NYX Retractable Eye Liners or the Slide On Pencils? Are you as glad for the weekend as I am?
