NYX – The Curve review

15 Sep

Last week I bought this enticing liquid eyeliner from NYX called The Curve.  It retails at $14.99 at Ulta, Target and online.


Description: The Curve Liner in Jet Black by NYX has an innovative, ergonomic shape that makes applying liquid liner mistake-proof. The grip zone provides just the right hold to make application precise, secure and best of all…effortless
What it promises to do: Provides an ergonomic shape for optimal holding and easy application. Suitable for right and left handed application with universal shape. Skinny tip for precision lining. Excellent color pay-off. Quick drying, smudge proof, no feathering, no skipping, no running, paraben free.

How it holds up: Overall I really like this eyeliner but don’t actually think the shape helps that much – maybe if you are completely new to liquid liners.  [I was a teenage goth, so I like to think I’m a pro.  :)] It does smear if you rub it, so just don’t rub it.  I gave it the Disco Nap test and I still had it on when I was ready to go out, so it did have the lasting power it promised.  I made sure to apply NYX HD Eyeshadow Primer first thought.  It’s good but its not $15 good.  You can get the same pay off other drug store liners, so unless you have a coupon I wouldn’t spend the extra money on The Curve.

    Shame it’s not quite worth the money. It looks so exciting so I hoped it would be.

      It looks so neat though, doesn’t it?! I love the shape but it doesn’t really make a huge difference for the price.

    It looks great and easy to hold, but even with my last felt tip pen eyeliner I bought, it dried out fairly quickly. I stick to either pencil or the liquid ones I can dip in to, just in case! This one doesn’t look like it would last too long.

      I am curious to see how long it lasts. I will get back to you about that. The felt tip is exactly like many other products out there on the market.

      I love the gel liner I received from Cailyn in one of my Ipsy bags. It has good staying power and is a lot easier to handle. And can still pull off the flicked cat eye.

        That Cailyn Gel liner is amazing! I like how the brush comes with it!
