NYX Epic Ink Liner Review

March 26, 2018

The Nyx Epic Ink liner is a liquidy, satin finish liquid eyeliner. It's a a brush style pen with a super fine tip. Some people love this liquid eyeliner. I am one of them. It's definitely not perfect but I would say it's nearly perfect for me.

I love it because:

  • It's affordable
  • It's waterproof and smudge proof
  • It doesn't flake off
  • The brush style doesn't become dry when i'm using it (like with the KVD Tattoo Liner)
  • I personally like that it's super liquidy
  • It lasts a long time on my eyes
  • It doesn't bleed on my eyelids
  • The formula is comfortable on the eyes and looks smooth and thin
  • I can apply it on eyeshadow without the brush getting 'clogged' with product as much. If it does, I can easily clean the bristles with makeup remover.

I was interested to discover a lot of people have a serious problem with inner corner bleeding when using this. This was not something I initially dealt with until after a few uses. Now it struggles on my inner corner too. It doesn't bleed on me but it doesn't like to stick to the inner corner of my top eyelid. It's like it's being diluted with water. I can make it work. It's not something that seriously bothers me because it doesn't look that bad. For daily use, it's fine.


  • Feathers on fine lines
  • Doesn't stick to skin with water on it
I feel it's otherwise pretty damn good! I'm very pleased with how it lasts on my eyelids, even if I apply it on oily or bare skin. Because the formula of this is so liquidy, I think it has potential to bleed on eyelids with a lot of micro fine lines. If you have very watery eyes, getting this to stick to your lashline when applying can easily be a problem.

The NYX Epic Ink Liner retails for $12 CAD and $8 USD.
