NYX Cosmetics has a new line of eyeliners called Liquid Crystal Liner. They are crazy glittery infused liners that come in ten different colors.
According to NYX these liners have moisturizing ingredients in them that help them to sparkle and condition while you are wearing.
The colors I have are are:
- Crystal Hip – Silvery white with holo glitter
- Crystal Aqua – Aqua blue with light blue glitter
- Crystal Champagne – Gold with gold glitter
- Crystal Pewter – Lavender with pink and blue glitter
- Crystal Pink – Pink with pink glitter
- Crystal Onyx – Black with silver glitter
I’m not really one for glitter, I feel too old for it usually. I hate the idea of looking like a woman trying to look younger, blech. But these are really subtle (or rather they can be). I had the chance to test one out recently when I was wearing a rather plain look. I had kind of neutral eyeshadows on and just black liner. I decided to add a line of Crystal Pewter over the black and it added just the right amount of bling to my eyes without me looking like a 14 year old.
These are on the sheer side since most don’t have a colored base; they are really clear with glitter. Crystal Onyx is the only one that has a colored base, which is black. You can use them either alone for a more subtle look or over a colored liner for more of an impact. A few of them I had to swipe a couple times to get more opacity.
They washed off pretty easily, I didn’t have any problems getting them off at all, which is always a plus with glitter! They do have a very slight gritty feeling if you touch them, but you can’t feel it when it’s actually on your eye. They seemed to stay in place all day as well.

I think these are pretty nice glitter liners and I would definitely use them again. I like the color range and I like that they aren’t so over the top with the colors.
What do you think about these?
