NYX Glam Liner Aqua Luxe Review and Swatches

NYX Glam Liner Aqua Luxe Eyeliners
Purchased by Tamara

Product Description


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

  • 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.

Performance


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.

Overall Opinion


Pros:

  • Long lasting
  • Does not smudge, fade, or flake off
  • Beautiful vibrant colors

Cons:

  • Can be hard to remove
  • Not a fan of the applicator
  • Glam Azure and Glam Lagoon stain skin

Worth buying? If you really like a particular color (and can put up with possible skin-staining) then I would go for it. They don’t necessarily compel me to collect all the colors but for an occasional pop of color and shine, these do the trick.

  1. I just discovered your blog today and I really like it! Do you have any recommendations for a natural eye shadow palette that isn’t to expensive.

  2. Wow you have beautiful eyes! I especially like glam lagoon but staining is definitely a drawback. Still fun for a pop of color. New reader here 🙂

    • Welcome Lindsay, thank you for stopping by 🙂 After I posted this I realized that maybe next time I’ll try layering the blue and green ones that stain over a black eyeliner and see if that helps.
