Oh my gawwshhh, Holy Grail liquid eyeliner right here. It's uberly expensive (£18 for an eyeliner, sob) but so worth it. And I'm tight. It's this innovative formula which you can read all about on that link above - they undoubtedly explain it much better than I ever could. But in a nutshell, I'll give you some good and bad bits about it.
Good points. It's absolutely, 110% waterproof. If it gets splashed, if you cry, if your eyes water, or if you swim, it'll stay put which is perfect for my eyes which run because of everything. It's also rub-proof. You have to rub it extremely hard to get it to budge at all. It's easy to remove - it's the combination of these two things - you just remove it with water (not oil: it's oil-proof) and gentle pressure. It then comes off in a few large chunks, rather than smudging everywhere. It's also really black. Not a dark grey, but proper ebony. It's excellent for sensitive eyes, because it has fewer ingredients, and it lasts a long time without getting all thick and drying out. Oh, and it's free delivery from the website!
Bad points. Well obviously, the price. It's a lot of money, but if you buy the the £2.50 trial size you get a voucher for 20% off which is great. Also, the brush is quite thick apparently - I find it okay because I like a fairly thick line but some people trim some bristles off to get a thinner line. And finally, sometimes I forget I'm wearing it (it's very light you see, you can't feel it on your eyelids at all) so if my eyes water at the corners and I rub them, obviously the flick comes right off! That's about it to be honest. This stuff is really amazing, I can't praise it enough!
I write a lot of make-up reviews so therefore I do use a lot of products but there are certain ones that nothing even comes close to matching up to and this "Blinc Eyeliner" is one of those products. I got it a few years back in a Blinc gift set for my birthday and I have been buying it ever since. With the exception of Touche Eclat this is one of the most expensive make-up items I buy but I really do think it is worth every penny I dont get definition half as good with anything else Ive used and I think this is the best liquid eyeliner ever. Dont let the price put you off Im sure it'll win everyone over as well - cant believe Im the first to write a review on it to be honest!
Price: £18.00 (A trial size is available for £2.50)
Stockists: Amazon & The Blinc website
Shades: Black, Grey, Dark Blue & Medium Brown. I personally own the Black shade as I use it for everyday wear rather than anything else.
Before I start writing about how great I think this is i think I should mention what the added features if you like of this eyeliner are. Well this liner: it stays on even when your crying or rubbing your eyes, stays on until you take it off and practically nothing can make this smudge or flake, it wont however stain your skin or leave any marks behind, can create really precise lines, lasts longer in the bottle without drying out basically the list is endless and to save suspense Ill tell you it does do everything it promises and more - which is why I love it so much.
Very, very easy to apply I think as with all liquid liners all you need is a steady hand and a lot of practice and then you will be able to create the exact look you want and get really precise lines and brilliant definition. The brush on this one is super thin which means its great for if you only want a thin line but it can be easily built up if you want a darker more dramatic look. Very simple but it does take practice.
This is so much better than your average eyeliner as the look you get from this is so amazing. Check out the picture of the girl wearing this on the Blinc website and you will see what I mean because making those little flicks at the corners of your eyes and getting a thin, straight line is super easy with this as the liner just glides on in one smooth movement rather than having to keep stopping and starting. This frames and accentuates my eyes really well and I dont know what Id do without it - I simply wouldnt look like myself because I wear this pretty much everyday. I even wear this to the gym as nothing makes it run or smudge: sweat, water, chlorine - god I love it! You would think removing it is difficult but it really isnt but you do have to use a water based make-up remover NOT oil based!
£18 may sound like a lot for an eyeliner so if you dont wear it very much I dont recommend you spend that much money but if you do wear it a lot like I do you will wonder how you ever lived without this one as it really is worth every penny. Highly recommended.
