NYX Cosmetics’ Faux Blacks eyeliner in Oxblood

I’m happier with this color than with Burnt Sienna. While the other red in this collection actually looks red, this looks more like a burgundy-brown. It’s a better overall liner shade for fairer skintones than Sienna because this doesn’t start to slide into the “looks like the tail-end of a massive crying jag” zone. I can’t get as precise a line with one of my Oxblood pencils, but the other one is better. (I don’t know if that’s a case of bad batch, or earlier formula versus newer formula.)
