So here's the liquid eyeliner that I mentioned in my previous post. This is part of The Body Shop's Lily Cole limited edition line. As with the other items in this collection, the packaging is super cute.
It took me two weeks before I gave in and bought this since I haven't had much luck with liquid eyeliners in wells. Most of the time, the formula is too thick for me and always stings. This was milder although when I tried putting it on thick, for a fleeting moment, it stung a little.
It comes with a felt-tip applicator which works well especially if you're a bit challenged when it comes to drawing a line around your eyes. It's firmness helps maintain control during application.
The swatch below shows the opacity of this liquid eyeliner. On top, I layered it on twice and below was just a single swipe. It's a lot simpler to apply on bare skin because on top of powder, it appears thinner and you may need a third layer.
When applying this, remember to let it dry for a few seconds before you blink or else you'll end up with a mess.
It was only this year that I started to appreciate eyeliners that aren't black or brown. Purple is definitely becoming one of my favorites because I love the way it stands out when worn with a neutral or sparkly eye.
This stays on for a very long time without smudging or fading. In fact, I can apply this in the morning and when I come home at night, it's still there. And that makes me a happy camper.
Do check this out - it's a pretty good product that'll add an extra oomph to your everyday look!
