Product Description

Price/Quantity: About $5.50 for 3 grams
Availability: NYX Website, Ulta, Amazon.com
Color Range: 9 Shades

  • Glam Nude – Metallic light gold
  • Glam Purple – Frosty/glittery bluish-purple
  • Glam Azure – Metallic electric sky blue
  • Glam Lagoon – Frosty/glittery green with a teal pull

Packaging: These are pretty standard eyeliner tubes. The applicator is a thin brush that is attached to the lid and dips into the product. They are color coded with a faux jewel top and color band around the middle of the tube. The name of the color is on the bottom of the tube as well.
Smell: They didn’t smell like anything to me.


Application: I found it hard to get a clean line using the applicator because the bristles were a bit too long and flimsy. I couldn’t get a complete line with just one dip because the product would start to dry out on the brush mid-application.
Pigmentation: I needed to apply two layers to get an opaque line. Be careful with Glam Azure and Glam Lagoon as they will stain your eyelid. It helps to use a primer and eyeshadow underneath but it still may stain your eyelid. I had to use concealer and a nude shadow for about 2 days before the stain completely faded. Glam Nude and Glam Purple did not give me this problem.
Texture: They look really glossy when you first apply them but after dry-down the glossiness fades and leaves a very frosty/sparkly appearance. Once they dry, they don’t smudge or fade until you remove them.
Longevity: These last like crazy. I wore them for 12 hours and they looked exactly the same at the 12th hour as they did when I first applied them. They also require a good makeup remover to take them off. My Neutragena makeup remover wipes did a good job of removing these.
