NYX The Curve Review & Swatches
NYX The Curve Liquid Eyeliner ($15) is possibly one of the best tools I’ve seen for applying a tricky medium like liquid eyeliner.
Although I’ve recently fallen in love with the new three prong liquid eyeliner designs introduced for Fall 2012 from a variety of brands like Too Faced and Clarins, I must say The Curve actually takes foolproof liquid lining to new levels.
Take a look!
It’s been mentioned dozens of times but I really have not conquered and mastered liquid eyeliner. Housing the medium in a tricky little package like the Curve makes it even more intimating to me.
Shaped like a gun, this ergonomic shaped liquid eyeliner actually ensures you have a steady hand each time you apply your liner. To keep it steady you’ll hold it between your thumb and index finger. Your index finger follows the curve of the design and fits snugly atop it so that the liner brush remains steady. This basically results in mistake proof eye lining.
I typically start from my inner eye and work out but this is best suited to starting at the outer lash line and working towards your inner eye. I can basically get a super thin, straight (or a thick) line in a single stroke without any issues.
After application I actually had to second guess if it was me that really created that flawless line. Liquids aren’t exactly easy to work with but this creates a straight, even application each and every single time I tried. Granted, I’m still not getting the “flick” down yet but at least I don’t have a shaky mess all along my lash line.
Overall, this is really handy tool. Experienced users will appreciate the innovative design and clumsy ones, like me, will appreciate the simplicity and foolproof application.
For NYX I think $15 might seem a touch high, hey we expect budget beauty from our friends at NYX right? But I must say it’s worth every single penny.
Quite a handy tool.
This I must Muse Approved.
Do pick it up.
I think it’ll change your feelings about liquid eyeliner.
