NEW Nykaa Black Magic Liquid Eyeliner- Super Black 01- FIRST IMPRESSION & REVIEW

Hello Everyone,

Just a few months ago Nykaa.com had launched their matte nailpaints and matte lipsticks. These products soon gained a lot of attention and were really appreciated by a lot of beauty and makeup experts. Now Nykaa has decided to expand their makeup range to EYES.

Most recently they launched their very own ‘Nykaa Black Magic Liquid Eyeliner’ in the shade Super Black 01. I am all about Kohl, eyeliners and mascaras and therefore got my hand on it as soon as possible. 🙂 Now, lets see if this product actually stands up to its claims.079

PRODUCT CLAIMS:-

  • Nykaa Black Magic Liquid Eyeliner – Super Black 01
    Well, hello pretty eyes! A bold release that packs a punch in just one swipe, Nykaa’s Black Magic Eyeliner is all you need to get your best eyes on. What’s great about this product is its melt, crack and run resistant properties. This refined liner glides perfectly across the lash line for a gorgeous fluid application, leaving you looking super sensational!

      • This eyeliner is dermatologically tested.
      • It has water resistant and high-pigment properties and is completely smudge proof.
      • It stays up to 10 hours.

This refined brush is perfect for easy application.

PRICE:-

Rs. 299 for 5 ml

FROM WHERE TO BUY IT:-

http://www.nykaa.com

MY FIRST IMPRESSION AND REVIEW:-

The eyeliner comes in a red colored paper box which is quite attractive and cool. The body of the eyeliner itself is black in color and matte in texture. The good part about the body is that the wand handle is very big and therefore easy to use. Coming to the bristles they are thin, soft and neatly packed. The thin bristles glide beautifully on your lids and are perfect for creating a neat winged eyeliner. It is water resistant as claimed by Nykaa but not waterproof. However it doesn’t last for 10 hours and starts cracking and disappearing from the edges in around 3-4 hours. It is smudge-proof but when rubbed a little aggressively it starts to crack from here and there.

Finally, I would like to say that for a decent price Nykaa has managed to do a more than decent job and I am very impressed by Nykaa Black Magic Liquid Eyeliner.IMG_1972.JPGIMG_1979.JPGIMG_1985.JPGIMG_1987.JPGIMG_2043 - Copy.JPG

PROS:-

  • Coast effective
  • Chic packaging
  • Long wand handle
  • Thin and soft bristles
  • Good for creating thin and winged eyeliner
  • smudge-proof
  • Water resistant

CONS:-

  • Not waterproof
  • Does not lat for 10 hours as claimed by the brand
  • Needs touchups after every 3-4 hours
  • Bristles pickup a lot product at once
  • Needs a lot of layering to create thick and bold eyeliner looks

RATING:-

4/5

WOULD I BUY THIS PRODUCT AGAIN AND RECOMMEND IT TO OTHERS?

Absolutely. This is by far the best eyeliner in the lower price range column.

SUGAR Cosmetics Stroke Of Genius Heavy Duty Kohl 01 Back to Black- Swatches and Review

Hello Everyone,

There is something about Sugar cosmetics, as soon as they launch a product I just have to go ahead and try it. They started out with their lip crayons and have not disappointed me so far. Just a few months ago SUGAR cosmetics launched their eye makeup range. I had heard a great deal about their heavy duty kohl, but I don’t believe anything till I have tried it myself. So, here is my experience with the SUGAR cosmetics Stroke of Genius Heavy Duty Kohl 01 Back To Black.

Product Description:

It’s a waterproof kohl pencil with intense black colour and soft  creamy formulation. Its wax-based formula spreads evenly and lasts for up to 8 hours. It is free of mineral oil, paraffin, preservatives, volatile cyclomethicones (D4, D5, D6) and animal derived ingredients.

Ingredients:

Iron Oxides, Black 2, Mica, Ferric Ferrocyanide, Dimethicone, Synthetic Wax, Silica, Stearyl Dimethicone, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Trimethylsiloxysilicate/Dimethiconol Crosspolymer, Octadecene, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-Di-T-Butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Isoceteth-10

How to apply:

Gently rim your lower and upper lash lines with this creamy Kohl. Open your eyes wide for precise application.

Price:

Rs 499/- for 1.2 g and it comes with a free sharpener.

My Experience with SUGAR cosmetics Stroke of Genius Heavy Duty Kohl 01 Back To Black:

I will start by saying that I am really enjoying using this kohl. It comes in an attractive and fun cardboard packaging. There is a sharper to sharpen the tip as and when required. The tip is good for 4-5 uses before you having to sharpen it.

It is super pigmented. A single swipe gives you deep black colour. The formula is very soft and creamy. The smoothness of this kohl is unbelievable. It stays on for good 6-7 hours. It is waterproof and you need a good quantity of makeup remover to remove it. Although, it is not smudge-proof as claimed by the brand. It starts to smudge at the corners of your eyes after 2 hours.
