Nyx Auto Eye Pencil -'Electric Blue'

Hello Friends!
Today I am reviewing Nyx Auto Eye Pencil Electric Blue.I love all kinds of blue liners.So did I fall in love with it?Do read on to know more.

What The Company Says?
Take your look to a whole new level of beautiful by emphasizing your eyes with this rich, intense, long lasting eyeliner pencil! The creamy texture of NYX Auto Eye Pencil delivers intense pigmentation while it moisturizes. It’s a twist-up style eyeliner and doesn’t need to be sharpened.Available in 40 shades.

Ingredients:Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, Ployglycerl-2 Trisostearate, Butyl Paraben, B.H.T., Zinc Stearate, Iron Oxides, Titanium Dioxide, Polymethyl Methacrylate, Mica (and) Titanium Dioxide (an) Iron Oxides, Mica (and) Titanium Dioxide.

Price- 3.50$ at Nyx Site, 2.50$ at Cherry Culture.India -Rs 225, I got this for Rs 180. 

My Take on Nyx Auto Eye Pencil:
I have a huge collection of blue eye liners in liquid and pencil form.Whenever I see any blue liner, I cant stop myself from purchasing it.So this obsession towards blue liner compelled me to buy the Nyx Auto eye pencil in shade Electric Blue.I am very impressed with Nyx Cream and powder blushes, eye shadow base, concealer, single eye shadow and Loose eye shadow.So I didn't hesitate from buying it which was my biggest fault.
Its a retractable eye liner which comes in beautiful classy black packaging.The packaging looks damn good and I fell in love with it at the first sight.But when I opened the cap,immediately the liner popped out.It was entirely broken.Anyways the shade is vibrant light blue just like Rin soap, he he he! Every body cannot carry it.This shade suits me but I have to swipe some 6-7 times to get desired color pay off.Its texture is pretty hard and tugs my eye lids badly.Its almost similar to Crayon Pencils that we used to have during our childhood ;p At Rs 180, I could have got at least two packets of Crayon pencils and use that on my eyes rather than this liner :D :D .You keep on swiping this liner but what you get is poor result.Its waterproof but not smudge resistant, it immediately fades entirely if you rub your eyes.Its staying power is nearly 2 hours.Friends this is one of my bad buys from Nyx, but overall Nyx has some really good makeup products.Overall I advise Nyx Company to pay more attention towards the quality of the pencil rather than its packaging.

After Swatching 8 times.

Pros Nyx Auto Eye Pencil Electric Blue:
>Shade is a pretty vibrant light blue color.
>This shade immediately brightens up my face.
>These days its available at several online shopping sites.
>Its a retractable eye liner so there is no hassle of sharpening every time and thus no product wastage.
>Its water proof.
>Packaging is sturdy and very eye catching.
>Almost 40 shades are available.

Cons of Nyx Auto Eye Pencil 'Electric Blue':
>This liner cannot be sharpened so you cant draw thin lines if you desire and kind of not hygienic to use for a long time.
>Its very hard and powdery in texture and tugs my lids badly.
>You need 7-8 swipes for some visible color on your lids.
>The liner is very brittle and prone to breakage.
>Its not smudge proof.
>It stays for 2 hours maximum on my eyes.
>Pretty costly for such a low quality pencil.
>The pencil liners available at local markets for Rs 20-30 are better than this liner.
>Pigmentation is poor.
>It doesn't twist up properly.

Darna Mana hai!  :D :D
Am looking bit cartoon, but I put it to show you the shade closely! :p

Rating: 1.5 out of 5, I am rating it only for the shade.

Will I Repurchase? Do I look insane???? Never buddies!

Overall Recommendation: Stay away from this product. rather buy pencil liner from your local cosmetic shops at lower price,even those would be much better than this.
