Barry M Liquid Eyeliner
Advantages: easy to apply, easy to remove, stays in place, cheap to buy
I recently bought some new make up from Boots, and it was on 3 for 2 mix and match, so I got to pick an extra item for free? I ended up choosing Barry M Liquid Metallic Eyeliner as I needed some new liquid eyeliner, and this one looked quite nice. It was free, so if it turned out to be awful, there would be no problems and I could just put it in the bin.
I had used Barry M products in the past, but never had used their eyeliner before, let alone their liquid eyeliner. I didn't really know what to expect when I started using this. The metallic eyeliner is black, with a silver, metallic hint to it. I thought this would be a nice difference from normal black eyeliner.
The eyeliner comes in a small pot, which has a long wand in the long lid, and the bottom of the wand has a small, fabricy type nib which you apply the liquid eyeliner with. The top screws into the base, so you know when it is closed properly and it is nice and secure once it has closed, I have had no problems with leaking or anything like that.
The liquid inside the pot is a really nice, deep black and you can see the slight shimmer of metallic in it. The nib dabs into the liquid easily, and you will always be sure that a good amount of eyeliner is on the nib. I found that I could easily apply eyeliner to top and bottom lids, as well as add a flick to my eyes with just one dab of the eyeliner, so two dabs does both eyes.
The metallic look to this eyeliner is actually really nice. You can still see the darkness of the eyeliner, but there is a lovely amount of shimmer from the metallic particles in the liquid. It really does help to highlight my eyes and it gives me a great look, as well as going really well with the rest of my make up.
I was a little bit worried that this would fade easily or run off my face should I get hot or sweaty, but luckily it stayed in place perfectly the whole time I needed it to. I even fell asleep with my make up on once (I know, bad girl!!) and when I woke up in the morning, the eyeliner was actually still in place!! I was quite impressed with this to be honest.
It is really easy to remove this eyeliner too. It just disappears in the swipe of a make up wipe, or just washing my face with a general cleanser. It feels really gentle on my skin too, and I find that this gives my skin no adverse reactions. I have quite sensitive skin, so anything that gives me no reaction is a very good thing in my book.
You can buy this eyeliner in Boots and in Superdrug for just under £4 and I think it is a good price for what you get. If you are looking for a slightly different look to your eyeliner, then I think the metallic one is truly the way to go, as it really does add a new edge to your make up, without being too dramatic or different.
I love this eyeliner, and I think it is something most women (or men!) should try. I give this eyeliner a 5 out of 5 stars, and I totally recommend it as I can find no bad points to it.
