Continuing with my NYX eyeliner reviews, I am going to talk about the NYX Slide-On Eye Liner in the shade Azure today. When this range launched, there was a lot of talk about them being drugstore dupes for the Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils. You know Slide-On vs Glide-On. So these had been on my wishlist forever until I got to purchase these in my last haul. I wanted to try many shades from this range, especially the browns and the black but unfortunately most of them were sold out. But I did get my hands on this gorgeous sky blue shade! So let’s get to the review and see how it performs!
Don’t let the softness of this pencil fool you. This formula doesn’t smear or smudge and delivers powerful, robust colors. It’s like a liquid eye liner without the mess. Available in 18 sleek shades.

The Slide On Eye Pencils from NYX come in a regular sharpenable pencil form. It has a black plastic lid which secures the pencil tightly. The body of each of the pencils from this range are color-coded to match the actual shade which is so helpful to locate them when you’re in a hurry. I have sharpened it and it can be sharpened with any regular sharpener, the only issue being the wastage that these sharpenable pencils are prone to. But on the plus side, it is really easy to sharpen them and draw fine lines.
This particular pencil has an average pigmentation and it needs around 2-3 swipes to get a fully opaque line.The shade is a light sky blue color very with fine silver-colored shimmer particles. It adds a bright, fun pop of color to your face!
It is very creamy and soft, almost crumbling onto the skin if too much pressure is applied. The texture of this pencil is much softer and creamier than the NYX Retractable Eye Liners. Because of shimmer, it has a tendency to have a slight fallout. For example when I used it on my top lash line (as you can see in the pictures below), some of the shimmer particles fell on top of my eyelashes. Of course that is just a minor issue and can be cleaned super easily. NYX describes these eye pencils as waterproof and quite accurately, once it sets, it stays put all day. It is completely waterproof and smudge-proof. On my top lash line, this pencil stays put for more than 8 hours. I haven’t tested this shade on my waterline and neither would I suggest any of you guys to do that because it has shimmer particles that might get inside the eye. But all in all, I love this pencil!

NYX Slide-On Eye Liner Azure is an averagely pigmented sky blue colored eyeliner with very fine shimmer particles. The pencil is completely waterproof and stays put on the lash line for a really long time. Other than their availability issue in India and the minor fallout concern, I’d highly recommend checking it out!
