Palladio Liquid Eyeliner

After an 8-year hiatus, I finally decided it's time to start wearing liquid eyeliner again.  Why did I stop wearing it in the first place?  Well, because my eyelids would always sting.  No matter what brand I wore.  And so, I switched to pencil and powder liners.
Come to think of it, the only one I could stand to use was the one from Maybelline.  My friends back in college were the ones who introduced me to that product.  I forgot what it was called.  It was thick and gooey... when it dried up, it felt sort of like plastic.  And to remove, I would just peel it off.  I don't even know if they still have it today.
Anyway, back to our topic.  I figured since many years have passed, the quality of liquid eyeliner would improve.  The first one I tried was this liquid eyeliner from Palladio which came with a felt tip applicator.

The first time I wore it, my eyelids stung.  So I tried it another time.  It still stung.  And then, the mother of all stupid ideas came to me, I tried it for a third time.  Nothing changed.  I should have quit the first time.

A definite thumbs down when it comes to being hypoallergenic.  Plus, it's not waterproof, so it'll smudge after a while.  Both points are a big no-no for contact lens wearers like me.

I tried a few more liquid eyeliners after this, and was disappointed.  A lot of them made my eyelids sting and left a dark mark after.  BUT I did find one that worked out just fine.  I'll save that for another day ;)


  1. I dont use liquid coz my hands are not stable enough :p

    out of curiosuty, the pencil liner that you use now, the one that doesnt cause a sting... doesnt the same brand have a liquid liner version?

    i would assume if you dont sting with the pencil, you wont sting with the liquid (of the same brand)...

  2. i'm now using face shop's extreme brush pen eyeliner. super easy to use and it doesn't smudge. plus it's less than 500 pesos :)

  3. @notsquare I use the eyeliner pencil of Prestige because it goes on smooth. The others I've tried are too hard, it's like scratching my eyelid. When I tested their liquid eyeliner it stung. There's probably a chemical in the liquid one that I'm allergic to that's not present in the pencil liner. :)

  4. @gemgem oooh I should try that! The Face Shop is hit or miss for me... some products are great, the others bleh. Thanks for the tip ;)

  5. i can relate to the scratching the eyelid :p thats how I feel pag AVON pencil liner :p I use Clinique now :) muuuch better!

  6. can relate to "scratching my eyelid" :p ganun yung sa AVON! Now I use CLINIQUE.
