NARS picked the perfect time to re-launch their Eyeliner Stylo line because graphic eyeliner is one of the top trends for Fall!
I purchased Atlantic (navy blue) and Koala (medium grey) since I hardly see these colors in liquid eyeliner. Once I'm done with my K-Palette eyeliners, I'd like to give Carpates a try since it is one of the most intense black liners I've seen. I expected Nuku Hiva to be a darker shade of brown - I'm not sure if I like the intensity, it seems a bit too light.
Eyeliner Stlyo has a felt-tip applicator which is firm but I find it a bit too wide which makes creating a thin line challenging. I spent more time than usual just to make sure the parts where thinner application was needed looked neat - I used a dotting motion instead of drawing a straight line. I find it easier to apply liquid eyeliner with a brush-tip (like Cezanne Ultra Fine Eyeliner N). However, I'm happy that I can apply this to my lower lash line without any feathering.
These are very pigmented that I don't need to go back and top it off with a second layer. When applying, let it set for a bit before blinking because its pretty wet at the start.
This claims to last for 24-hours but I can't speak to that because I remove my makeup when I sleep. However, this lasted from day to late night without fading or smudging.
I love that it did not irritate my eyes or skin at all!

When this was first released, I ignored Eyeliner Stylo because it was just a liquid eyeliner. But after three weeks of going back and forth the NARS counter, I finally caved and swatched. No regrets in purchasing because these perform pretty well!
