NYX Vivid Brights Liner in Vivid Escape // #NYXCanada

Pastel lavender lips and lime green eyes. My spring make-up dreams have come true. Thanks, NYX Cosmetics. 

The NYX Vivid Brights Liner in Vivid Escape ($10) is one of 9 bold liners: 
  • Vivid Petal (pastel pink)
  • Vivid Fire (light red)
  • Vivid Halo (muted orange)
  • Vivid Delight (pastel yellow)
  • Vivid Escape (pastel lime green)
  • Vivid Envy (muted turquoise with green undertone)
  • Vivid Sapphire (sapphire blue)
  • Vivid Violet (vivid violet)
  • Vivid Blossom (pastel lavender)
The Vivid Brights Liners are housed in inkwell + brush-tip packaging. While brush tips aren't my favourite, they're workable with a little practice and a steady hand. 

The colour of Vivid Escape is like toxic pea soup... but brighter. And I love it. The formulation is pretty pigmented for a watery liquid liner. It takes 2 layers for full on opacity and a little longer than normal to dry down completely, which isn't ideal but I'm willing to compromise because the colour is so beautiful. Staying power is wonderful for such a pale, pastel colour. I wore Vivid Escape for over 7 hours and at the end of the day it was still looking fresh on my eyelids. 

It's entirely possible to create a wearable eye makeup look with Vivid Escape (a pastel lime green eyeliner). All it takes is a thick lime green wing, then a little black wing closer to the lash line underneath it. Easy peasy, simple pimple. The great thing is that you could do this liner look with any funky coloured liner. IMO the black grounds the Vivid Brights Liner the same way it would if I were to wear a black wing with wacky coloured eyeshadow.

All in all, the NYX Vivid Brights Liner formulation isn't my favourite (good but not great) but I think it's as must-have if you want to experiment with a shade of eyeliner that you don't think you'll wear too many times...All the fun colours at a very reasonable price

What's your favourite coloured liner?
