NYX Candy Glitter Liner - Swatches

Side note: So I wrote this post a month ago but didn't publish it because I wanted to make sure these liners were eye safe since they aren't categorized as so on their site. I reached out to NYX via email on April 30th and never heard back. I sent them several tweets asking for clarification and didn't get a response either. It wasn't until this morning after I sent them a second email that they gave me an answer. I know that it's impossible to respond to each and every customers emails immediatly but I expect it to take much less than an entire month. Anyway.. back to the post...

NYX Candy Glitter Liners: Perfect for drawing precise lines of glitter for a dazzling effect, NYX’s Candy Glitter Liners are infused with moisturizing ingredients to not only offer sparkle but condition as well. This is one of the best selling glitter items!
Price: $4.50 ea. at NYX

Whenever I purchase NYX items I always have low expectations, not because I've had bad experiences with their products, but because they are so affordable and I always think of "you get what you pay for". Yes I know.. I'm crazy.  Till this day, I have not purchased a NYX item that I can complain about. On my recent trip to Ulta I purchased three Candy Glitter Liners.

The Candy Glitter Liners all have a clear base packed with loads of colored glitter.  The liners are easy to apply using the included thin brush.  I did find that it took two coats to make sure the application was even without any glitterless gaps.  I didn't have any fall out and the liners stayed put throughout the day.  NYX has these liners categorized under "Body Glitter" so they can virtually be worn anywhere.  I contacted NYX just to be sure these were safe to use as eyeliner and they said:
"Our Candy Glitter Liners are safe for eyes as they are comprised of glitter for cosmetic use however we don't recommend using these on the waterline."

Ingredients: Pure Water, Glycerin, Triethanolamine, Methylparaben, Carbomer, Fragrance, Polyethylene, Terepthalate, Acrylic Copolyer, Iron Oxide Yellow (CI77492), Iron Oxide Red (CI77491), Manganese Violet (CI77742), Titanium dioxide (CI77288), Ultramarine Blue (CI77007), Ferric Ammonium Ferrocyanide (CI77510), Iron Oxide Black (CI77499).

The glitter liners are gorgeous! Loving all the different color sparkles in the lavender one :)

And yeahh, NYX products are pretty awesome - I ordered a bunch last year in their 50% off sale and I'm happy with all of them :)

Thanks for the swatches!

Lavender is soooo pretty! I have wanted to try these, but I don't think I'd ever use them. :)
