NYX Cosmetics’ Faux Blacks Eyeliner collection

The partner-collection to NYX’s Faux Whites eyeliner pencils. These aren’t necessarily blackened colored liners, or even colors with a black base (like the Faux Whites were all varying tints of white), but they are all deeper shades, and are all pretty saturated. They all apply fairly well, and are varying degrees of smudgeable, but they cure into a liner color that stays in place and doesn’t fade away for the better part of a full day.

Photos that show how the product actually performs...! See how I create my swatches

Four eyeliners, swatched: Oxblood, Burnt Sienna, Black Olive, and Onyx Four eyeliners, swatched: Midnight, Obsidian, Blackberry, and Black Hole

I like the variety of shades: two reds, two purples, and...supposedly two blues and two greens, but actually one cool grey-blue, two blues, and one green. I have these shades in Stila's Waterproof Smudge Sticks, but it's very nice to see a midrange drugstore option for each of them.

This collection contained:

  • Black Hole
  • Black Olive
  • Blackberry
  • Burnt Sienna
  • Midnight
  • Obsidian
  • Onyx
  • Oxblood
