NYX Cosmetics’ Epic Wear Liner Stick in Gunmetal Gaze

One of the nicer charcoal liners I’ve gotten. It’s charcoal, not grey - I love grey liners too, but those are more smoke or dove-colored. This one’s definitely charcoal. It gives me starker definition without being a full-on black eyeliner, and it’s got a nice shimmer to it. Once applied, it stays workable/smudgable for a little less than a minute…and then it stays put all day. (It’s about as easy to remove as waterproof mascara. Seriously, this stuff is Not Moving.) Like all of these Epic Wear Liner Sticks, the product is very soft and so doesn’t hold a point, so super-sharp wings may require more work. But for those of us who love charcoal liners, or people who want black eyeliner but are still kind of leery of it, this is an excellent shade of a very good product.
