The Body Shop Liquid Eyeliner
Advantages: Easy to apply with fantastic finished results.
Disadvantages: The price...
I have never really been a huge fan of liquid eye liners in the past, as they always seemed to flake off and peel. This was until it recently got into make-up application for a modeling competition I was helping out with.
I would do the models hair and then someone would take over from the make-up side, this is which I found this fantastic product, I have certainly learned how to apply the make-up with outstanding catwalk results.
What makes this better is the fact that I can even apply make-up to myself and still achieve the superb results, the key is good quality products.
My favorite product at the moment is a Body shop liquid eye liner, in intensive black/
The body shop liquid eye liner is one of the best I have ever used, I love that it is really vivid in colour and stands out really well with any eye shadows or mascaras.
This is long lasting and dries within seconds without smudging onto the tops or your eye lids, this in itself was a very novel concept as I always ended up with big back lines across the top of my eyes before I used this.
The body shop offer three different colours so there will almost certainly be once to complement your skin tones perfectly.
This come was a great application wand that is very small, but enable you to apply it perfectly and precisely, without having a major panda eye disaster.
Once you open the little tube you will be taken aback by the talcum powder smell, which is rather nice as normally liquid eyeliners can smell very strong and unpleasant.
Unlike many other brands this is water resistant so you don't need to worry when it is a wet and horrible day, this will stay fully intact until you remove it yourself.
The application wand is a thin stick with a felt tip type end, this helps you get nice and even lines. I felt this was a huge benefit as the normal eyeliners have a longish but thin brush that is very flexible, and I so difficult to get nice smooth lines without them being very thick.
If you wear eyeliner without eye shadow then apply it to clean skin that has been cleansed and toned before hand, apply thin fine line to your top and bottom lash lines. If you want to add more to make more of an impact you can keep applying this until you are happy with the thickness of the lines.
I personally only ever wear it with eye shadow, so after I have applied my shadow but before applying my mascara, I add nice thick black lines to my upper and lower lash lines and sometimes even my tear duct areas.
This way I have the intense colour of a true black, if I put it on before my shadow it tend to go very dull and lose its intensity once I have applied the eye shadow. I finish with loads of mascara to create the spider leg look that also increases your lash length.
If you feel the lines are to severe then you can blend the eyeliner into a shadow, this can be done perfectly with a smudger brush, but you have to be very quick as the eyeliner dries very quickly and can be difficult to blend if it is left to long.
This will stay on for the duration and will need to be removed with a make-up remover or hot soapy water.
This body shop liquid eyeliner comes in a slim slender cone shaped tube, the product is contained in the bottom third of the tube and is incased in a small black container. The other two thirds are made of a silver metallic handle with is the application wand.
The silver application wand sits inside of the product container at all times, and is opened and closed by a screw top.
This is a perfect size, smaller than a pen so it will even fit into your purse if you didn't want to carry a handbag around.
The main ingredients are the famous community trade marula oil and vitamin E, these are all added to condition, protect and maintain the skins condition while wearing the product.
Other ingredients include Water, Propylene Glycol, Triethanolamine, Sclerocarya Birrea (Marula) Oil, Citric Acid, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Stearic Acid, Isopropylparaben, Butylparaben, Isobutylparaben, Tocopherol, Glyceryl Stearate, Xanthan Gum, Cellulose, Hectorite, Tocopheryl Acetate, PVP, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Iron Oxides.
For a 10ml tube of this liquid eyeliner you can expect to 8.00 from and Body shop of online body shop stores.
These come in three different shades, so you can choose the right one to complement your mascara or eye shadow. The shades are 01 Very black, 02 Brown and 04 Taupe which is a dark grey colour.
Admittedly this is very expensive when you get a cheaper brand for around 2.00, but I feel the price reflect the products quality. The smell, application and finished results are all superb with this product.
The thing that really drew me to this was the handy applicator wand, with it being a felt tip and not brush I found it very easy to control and apply the product perfectly. I was amazed at how professional my make-up looked after applying this.
I loved that it dried very quickly as I am very inpatient and I could wait long enough for other products to dry, hence why I have never been a huge fan of these liquid eyeliners in the past. So the fact this was quick drying was a very big selling point for me.
When I use I eyeliner pencil I would run it along my actual eye lid, but with this eyeliner I would not advise you to do that as it runs into your eyes making them water and it will not only ruin your make-up but it also stings and leaves you with black stringy eye boggies. So always place this under your eyelashes.
I am very impressed with the way this product applies and the finished effects are amazing, it is a product that can be applied lightly for a subtle day make-up or heavily for an intensive cat walk look.
I would recommend this to anyone who is a fan of liquid eyeliner, yes it is expensive but in my book worth every last penny.
Summary: Recomended for any glamour puss....
