“ Brand: Dior / Type: Eyeliners / Suitable for: Eye „
As I have mentioned in other reviews i like my make up and things girlie. I LOVE this eyeliner it is great. There are many reasons so here I go
This eyeliner is an automatic and long-lasting eyeliner pen. You twist the bottom of the liner to load the brush. The brush itself is fairly thick but goes into a nice thin tip perfect for application of thin or full lines.
I have found this eyeliner to be very long lasting, the colour is intense in black and i find that it does not fade or smudge easily which is great. west cumbria is not renowned for its beautiful weather and although it is not waterproof, I find it stays on in the rain just great.
As this liner is Dior, it is hypoallergenis and suitable for sensitive eyes & contact lens wearers. I know this to be true as my eyes are terrible if they come into contact with something chesap and nasty.
The liner comes in a 1.24ml pen and as mentioned earlier you click the pen to load up the liner. The only down side to this liner is that if you forget to pop the top back on then the brush does become quite dry, although this happens with any liner.
The lioner is a bit more expensive than high street brands comin in at anywhere from £14 to £22, it is worth it. I was bought one for valentines and it is still goin strong today 6 months on. Once you have opend the liner it is recommended that you do not keep it more than a year giving you plenty of time to use it.
Overall another great peice of make up by Dior
Dior Liquid Eyeliner
I have tried various types of eyeliners from pencils to liquid eyeliner to a strange dry one from MAC where you wet it with a brush and need a super steady hand to apply. The MAC one was strange and reminded me of a dry coloured paint that kids use and dip water into them to turn them into paint. I am currently using my Clinique one as I feared I had ran my dior one out. However on looking at it to review and fiddling with the twisty part I managed to blacken my hand so I guess there is still some left!
**Dior its Christian Darling!**
I have had a few Christian Dior products and have bought eye liner pencils, liquid liners and mascara. I have never dabbled in anything else they do as they are soooo expensive. In fact the liquid eyeliner is nearly £20 to buy! I bought mine at the airport in France on the way home and it isn't much cheaper than back home even though its French.
**What is it**
The Dior liquid eyeliner is an automatic, pen eyeliner that Dior suggests delivers a precise contouring and a flawlessly clean line. It is click activated so that you get the right amount of liquid goo to apply to make a vivid and bold line. It reckons that you can get an even stroke in just one line.
I have shade Noir or Black but I think it is also available in brown.
It comes in a blue plastic pen like shape with Christian Dior written on in gold. The top pops off and at the other end it has a twisty lid to let the liquid come through to the brush ready to apply. Considering this is an expensive designer brand the packaging is pretty pure. The blue is all scraped off showing a plastic pen and the writing has virtually disappeared.
I like liquid eyeliners as they don't irritate my eyes as much as pencil ones. I prefer them too as I wear contacts and glasses and find they don't get in the way of the contacts.
This eyeliner does give a good line and one is all you need. It does require a steady hand and I feel that the Clinique version I have is easer to apply than this. This if put on too fast can slip and you need to have cotton bud ready to wipe away. It also comes out quite wet and you need a bit of time to dry before you put on mascara.
I find that once on it lasts all day and it is nice and distinctive to give my eyes more appeal. It works well witha high impact mascara and makes my eyes stand out more and become more blue! More importantly with this liner it doesn't make you look overdone as it isn't too thick when applying.
Overall I find it is a good eyeliner but I prefer my Clinique one which is half the price. It does go on in one stroke but you have to develop a good steady make up hand to achieve this. The packaging is a bit shoddy considering the price too. Also if you twist it too much you end up with too much liquid coming out yet other times it feels like there is nothing left.
I would rate them 3 stars as it is a decent eyeliner but needs precision, is a tad expensive at nearly £20 a pop and not as good a quality as you may think. I wont re-buy unless Clinique stop doing their liquid eyeliner. Should you have a twenty knocking about head to Frasers, Debenhams or online to try to snip off a few quid off the asking price!
