NYX Cosmetics’ Faux Blacks eyeliner in Onyx

This and Linen (from the Faux Whites) were my first choices from these collections. Onyx doesn’t smudge out as much as I would like, but the coverage is good and it applies easily. My only complaint is that, perhaps, the product is a little too soft. I had repeated problems keeping any kind of point on this pencil, so applying it was (and is) a little bit of a chore. I’m afraid to try leaving the lid partially off for a night to see if that helps, because I think that will just harden the top and leave the rest at the same consistency.
