NYX The Curve Review, Swatches and Photos

The popular new NYX Curve eyeliner arrived in the UK last month and so I was happy to snap one up as I heard a positive hype about this product and wondered if it could help me achieve the perfect eyeliner flick.

The Liner comes in Jet Black only and is on the back of the box as 'An innovative, ergonomic shape that makes applying liquid liner mistake-proof.'
 
Here's my thoughts.
 
PACKAGING
The Curve comes boxed with information about the product on the box. The actual eyeliner itself is an unusual shape so that you are able to grip and hold the liner with ease. It is described on the box as 'Beauty Meets Function'. It also has a top to prevent the liner from drying out.
TEXTURE
The liner feels like you are applying a felt tip to your eye and it even looks like a fine felt tip pen! It feels smooth to use and glides on well.
COVERAGE
The curve is so highly pigmented so you can line the eye well in one go with no touch-ups.
APPLICATION
The packaging is really informative helping you get the best out of your application and how to hold it correctly. I must admit it took me a couple of go's to master the technique and get comfortable with holding The Curve in this unique way, once I got used to this I found it easy to apply. The tip of the liner is so minute and fine that is helps you create a really precise line and flick to your liner, along with the strong black pigmentation that really made my eyes pop.
LONGEVITY
At 11am my eyeliner still looked fresh with no smudging, even after a long workout at the gym.
This stayed on all day for me and still looked perfect at 9.30pm at night!

PRICE
This is priced at £12.50 on the NYX UK website which is slightly expensive, but I consider it to be a high-end drugstore brand here in the UK and considering this is a unique liner that you wouldn't ordinarily find in the drugstore, it’s worth paying a little extra for something special.
 

FINAL THOUGHTS
Overall I love the design and concept of this liner it's a great liner to have in your makeup kit for the cat eye look. I also love how black it is, it really is striking and complimentary to the eye. I am usually a pencil girl and this did take me a while to get used to holding the curve and perfecting my line but I defiantly will be using this felt tip liner more.

As mentioned above this is a little pricey for a drugstore brand and I would probably think £10 would of been a better price, but this is a unique liner for the budding make-up artist or cat liner lover!
I award the NYX The Curve a 4 out of 5
