Hi guys! Today I’m going to be talking about this liquid liner I’ve been using recently As I’ve mentioned before liner on the top lid is just me, smudged on with kohl or drawn with slick liner, either way it works!
So that is why I’m always interested in looking out for the near perfect liquid liner, something I’ve been testing for a few weeks now. (I have to admit though, since really using my gel eyeliner every day I MISS IT SO MUCH!) Ok so onto this little guy, available from Superdrug for £6.99 in a sleek bullet like packaging. Since I ordered it online from ASOS, I had no idea what to expect from it and was surprised to see it has the THINNEST applicator I have ever seen!
The Pros of this product are it’s great for beginners in liquid liner as the nib is so thin you can line close to the lashes without drawing a super thick line on. So this is also helpful for when practising the cat eye flick! The brush/applicator is also really flexible and not harsh on the delicate eye area in the slightest.
I’m afraid for me that is where the good stuff ends because although the line when first drawn looks really black, it does fade and not so gradually. I expect at least an 8 hour wear of this considering it’s labelled 16HRS! And whenever any product claims a certain amount of wear time and cannot deliver I feel pretty disappointed (why make the claim if you can’t live up to it eh?) Most times when I’ve been wearing this,I’ve applied it at 9am and I check it out at 1pm during the lunch break and it looks like I’ve used a marker that’s run out half way…
For me any liquid/gel liner MUST be long lasting, and for it’s price I really expected better quality! There are for sure better liners from the highstreet for a cheaper price in my humble opinion ._. The packaging and applicator is fabulous but the wear time of this means I won’t be buying it again… Have you ever used this liner before? What are your thoughts?
