NYX Slide On Pencils: Review & Swatches!

NYX has released a new line of eyeliners, called the Slide On Pencils. NYX claims these are waterproof, smudge-proof, and like liquid liner in pencil form. 18 shades are offered, and these retail for $8 wherever NYX cosmetics are sold.


NYX wasn't kidding around with any of their claims for these pencils... they apply to the skin extremely easily, and once they set, you're going to need a makeup remover to get them off of your skin. I had a few lines on my hand, took a shower, and the marks were still completely there when I got out. Yes, these actually are waterproof!

These can be sharpened using any regular size eye pencil sharpener.
Glitzy Gold, Sunrise Blue

To be honest, I can't tell any difference between these and the Urban Decay 24/7 pencils, other than the price. The shade selection is fantastic as well! On to the swatches:

Left to Right: Pure White (SL04), Jet Black (SL07), Black Sparkle (SL02), Gun Metal (SL11), Brown Perfection (SL15), Golden Bronze (SL16), Glitzy Gold (SL18), Platinum (SL08)


Left to Right: Golden Olive (SL05), Tropical Green (SL09), Esmeralda (SL06), Green Papaya (SL17), Azure (SL12), Sunrise Blue (SL14)


Left to Right: Pretty Violet (SL03), Purple Blaze (SL10), Jewel (SL13), Pink Suede (SL01)

My favorites are Jet Black, Golden Bronze, Glitzy Gold, Platinum, Golden Olive, Tropical Green, and Jewel. All of the shades are beautiful and I found them all to apply consistently well.

What are your favorite pencil liners?

  27. How long do these wear???? I love the price point and these look great, but my UD 24/7 have great longevity. Do they compare in that respect?

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'm so glad you posted about these! I've been looking for a smooth, glide-on eyeliner pencil that doesn't smudge throughout the day. I've heard about and seen Urban Decay's 24/7 eyeliners, but they were too pricey and I couldn't convince myself to buy one. I'll definitely be checking these out! They look amazing!

  29. i wanted to get one but i wasn't sure if they were going to work; now i know i can go buy a couple!

  33. I'm running out of golden eyeliner (my favorite color) and I really want to try these next. I love the color and staying power of my L'Oreal HIP eye pencil, but the formulation is just way too soft. Hopefully these will work just as well but will be easier to work with :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I want all of those..they are so beautiful! :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I AM BUYING THESE!

    ReplyDelete
  36. yes yes yes. they are amazing. they arent supposed to be waterproof but you need makeup remover to get them off. they also last a super long time on the waterline.

    ReplyDelete
  37. maybe some possible UD 24/7 pencil dupes? or not exact dupes but similar. I can't believe I always pass these up when I'm at Ulta - totally picking some of these up the next time I go! Is there any way you could do a comparison post of these pencils and the UD 24/7 pencils?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Can these be smudged before they set? I want to be able to smudge my liner out a bit before it dries but for it to then stay just like that for the rest of the day... thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  39. yes i'm going on 9 hours of wear and stil is very visible. my pencil has also lasted me 5 months and it's still going strong!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I am looking to buy a few. Trying to branch out in color, so we'll see which ones I buy. I am glad to know that the quality is great! :)

  41. how do these work on contact lens wearers? sometimes products can cloud up my contacts. also, do you know if they'll be coming out with a fleshtoned color?
