NYX Eye Pencil in Teal #930

Today I have a look with the NYX Teal eye liner that Dee sent me in the swap. Let's start with the pencil and a swatch:

Isn't that a pretty color? It's not a true teal, it's more of a cross between teal and mint, but it's so pretty, I really like it and I didn't have any colors like this. It did tug a bit on the lids, but I can live with that. Oh and did I ever mention that I love NYX? <3

Here is the look I did with it today:

I know i looks like my eyelashes ended mid-eye, but I just did a decent job in extending the eye-line :) Since it's such a bright color, I kept the rest of my makeup neutral. Look how it makes my eyes pop! Here's what else I used:

Highlight (very slight) Beautique Eye Crayon in Pearl

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Shadow pencil in Midnight Cowboy

Nicka K. Black eye liner

Fiberwig mascara black
