NYX Liquid Crystal Liner – Crystal Pewter Review
Product Claims: Just like our Studio Liquid Liner but infused with micro-glitter for a dose of razzle-dazzle. The fine tip allows for precision application, and can be used to create lines of varying thickness. Perfect for when you need to sparkle at a party, or for instant nighttime glitz.
Ingredients:- Mentioned on the bottle, but wasnt able to capture with the cam.
Price:- $4.50 for 5 ml
Available in 10 Shades:

Packaging:- The liner comes in a sleek cylindrical see-though plastic bottle with an opaque black applicator handle. The packaging reminds me of the Lakme Nine To Five Eye liners but it is slimmer and smaller than those. The brush is quite thin with long plastic bristles and an even more pointed tip for a precise application
My experience with NYX Liquid Crystal Liner – Crystal Pewter:-
Crystal Pewter is liquid liner with multi-colored shimmer crystals dissolved in a colorless base. The shimmers are a mix of silver, pink, blue and few specks of green. I am not much into glittery liners but I like the spark they add to the eyes because sometimes regular liners just don’t work for me.
I was surprised to see this over the tube “Not Intended to be used around the eye area”, well I guess they must be talking about the the water line and under eye area here.. 🙂
What I liked most about this eye liner is that its micro shimmer particles aren’t chunky. I could feel a bit of roughness when I run my fingers over it but they aren’t felt over the lids.
The liner goes on quite smoothly over the lids but the shimmers aren’t distributed evenly and I need at least 2-3 coats for an even and satisfactory opacity. It takes slightly longer to dry down completely but the glitters don’t move once it is set they stay glued to the applied area and wouldn’t turn eyes into a disco ball, so just keep your closed while it drying.
The liner can be used on its own or can be applied over a matte/regular liner to add bling to the eyes. The shimmers adds just the right amount of bling and doesn’t look too glittery or OTT. Somehow, shimmers on eyes makes me feel younger.. just like a teenage girl!
