Sleek Dip It Eyeliner
Advantages: cheap, great quality, staying power!
I have a huge passion for make up and usually buy a new make up product every week weather I purposely go to boots to buy make up or while at the supermarket doing my food shopping. I get lots of make up tips from youtube and like watching the tutorial videos as they always tell me how to create the look and what products they are using.
The last youtube make up tutorial video I watched was on how to apply a liquid eye liner, I ended up buying the eye liner the girl suggested. The eye liner was a black liquid eye liner by Sleek. Sleek is a new brand that I had not heard of before and can be purchased from larger Superdrug shops or the Sleek website. It cost me £3.79 from superdrug and I feel its a fraction of the price of other make up brands and good value for money.
The eye liner comes in a small pot with a long thin lid, the lid has the eye liner applicator attached to it making it mess free to store. The pot is black in colour and has the Sleek logo on it in hot pink writing, it looks cute and holds 4 mls of the black liquid eye liner.
Anyone who has ever attempted to apply a liquid eye liner will know how difficult it is to master the technique. You need a good steady hand and a mirror, I also find cotton wool buds and make up remover handy in case I make any mistakes. With the sleek eye liner I found the applicator brush had a fine nib on the end and found this allowed more control when applying it.
It took me a good few attempt before I got the hang of applying the liquid eye liner, I like to apply it at my dressing table with the mirror in front of me. I close the eye I am wanting to apply the eye liner to and then dip it into the eye liner pot making sure I do not over load the applicator with eye liner and apply it just above my eye lash line, starting in the inner corner of my eye and working my way to the outer eye and finish with a slight flick. I find it difficult to apply in one motion so I take my time and do line by line to create the look I want.
The eye liner felt cold and wet when applying it to my eye but take only a few seconds to dry, I try not to blink or move my eyes as it can be smudged very easily when wet. The applicator lid felt very long and difficult to hold at first but have got used to it over time and I am now a pro at applying it. The pigment of the black eye liner is fantastic it is jet black and creates a dramatic look, the staying power is fantastic and I find it lasts a good 10 hours before needing reapplied but I only ever use it when I am going on a night out. Although its not waterproof it did not budge in heavy rain but would not recommend wearing it to a wedding if you are the tearful kind. Sleek offer the eye liner in 9 different colours from metallics to purple shades, I cant wait to buy a metallic one to try.
I was delighted with the results from the eye liner and impressed with the Sleek brand for making such a high quality product at a affordable price and feel it deserves a place in my make up bag!
Summary: sleek make up is excellent and cheap!
