NYX has a new eye liner collection called Collection Noir.
Collection Noir features eight different eye liners, all in black with one in brown as well (Powder Liner).
- Powder Black Liner
- Powder Brown Liner (not shown)
- Liquid Black Liner
- Matte Black Liner
- Glossy Black Liner
- Satin Finish Black Liner
- Kohl Kajal Black Liner
- Skinny Black Liner (not shown)
There are definite differences in the finishes of these as you will see from the swatches below.
Powder Black Liner comes in a pot with a soft sponge-y applicator. This powder liner is a bit messy because of powdery fallout, and it gives a softer less deep and precise line.
Liquid Black Liner is a jet black liner with a fairly thin brush. The wand is a little bit longer than I would prefer though. I feel like a shorter wand and brush is easier for me to control.
Matte Black Liner, Glossy Black Liner, Satin Finish Black Liner, Kohl Kajal Black Liner
Matte Black Liner comes in a twist up pencil, as does Glossy Black Liner.
Both Satin Finish and Kohl Kajal come in a regular pencil which will need sharpening.
Powder Black Liner, Liquid Black Liner, Matte Black Liner, Glossy Black Liner, Satin Finish Black Liner, Kohl Kajal Black Liner
Powder Black Liner (0.05 oz) as you can see it the least deep black here and easy to smudge out.
Liquid Black Liner (0.123 oz) is a deep black.
Matte Black Liner (0.012 oz) is a dark matte, flat black. This one feels a little harder and more chalky than the others. It’s not as deep a black color either.
Glossy Black Liner (0.001 oz) gives a slight glossy finish to the blackness. Hard to tell here, but in person you can see it.
Satin Finish Black Liner (0.04 oz) is also a very dark black with a satin (non-flat, not shiny) finish. Very smooth and easy to apply.
Kohl Kajal Black Liner (0.004 oz) is a deep black kohl. This is very soft and blend-able.
I think the best ones here are the Glossy, Satin and Kohl liners. They felt the easiest to apply, easy to blend and are a very jet black color. The liquid is nice however I prefer a smaller, easier to control brush. For me powder liners can be cool but beware the fallout!
Have you tried any of these yet?
