Liquid eyeliner for people who can't apply liquid eyeliner
Member Name: AnnieLizzy
Advantages: Easy to apply, good value for money
Disadvantages: Staying power could be improved
I love liquid eyeliner. I don't wear it on a day to day basis but I like to wear it when I go out I the evening, or during the day if I am doing anything smart. I find that adding it makes me instantly look more polished and made up.
Last time I was in Boot's you got extra Advantage points with L'Oreal Superliner so I thought I would give it a go as L'Oreal tend to make very good value for money products. I paid £6.99 for mine so I would class it as a mid-priced eyeliner.
The packaging of this eyeliner is black with different coloured writing depending on what colour you go for. I went for carbon gloss which meant the writing was a pretty hideous green colour - I much prefer the gold lettering of the normal black! I am not a person that is really bothered about packaging of make-up though so I didn't let that put me off!
The applicator is sponge tipped. It is like the nib of a fine felt tip and is slightly bendy. I find this eyeliner incredible easy to put on, and one you get the knack it is really easy to vary the width of the line. Even I can manage a nice thick line of top tapering off to finer flicks of a cat-eye look with this applicator and I am rubbish at putting on eyeliner! If you find it hard I would recommend this one as it is the easiest to use I have ever found.
As I said earlier, I went for carbon gloss which is meant have carbon black pigments that make the black more intense. I have never been able to see the different between this and normal black in any product, to me black is black and anything less intense is dark grey. This could be because I have dark eyes and lashes anyway and perhaps the difference would be more noticeable on a fair person.
The eyeliner lasts fairly well. If I put it on in the morning it lasts until the evening, but you might need to reapply if you are going out for the night. In a night out in a sweaty cub it hold it's own fairly well but it does often disappear by the end of the night but I am yet to find a liquid eyeliner that doesn't.
I don't have particularly sensitive eyes but some cheaper brands of liquid eyeliner make my eyes sting and this one doesn't. I have slept in it before (yes I know it's naughty) and my eyes were fine in the morning.
Summary: A good, easy to apply mid-priced eyeliner
