An Unsung Beauty Hero: Liquid Eyeliner

Corinne - October 5, 2016

I am a self-confessed eyeliner girl. I love the confidence I naturally gain when I apply my feline flick in the morning. Unfortunately for me, I have low resting brows and hooded eyes. This is probably more obvious in full-length pictures than close-ups (as I raise my brows when I see my reflection). This leads me to my biggest pet peeve throughout my quest for the best eyeliner ever – I need a liquid liner that is smudge proof, believe me, my eyelids put this to the test.img_1377One of my all time favourite eyeliners is quite an old release – Benefit’s Magic Ink Liquid Eyeliner. The shade is called Jet Black. I like my liquid eyeliner to be the blackest of blacks, and this product lives up to its namesake. In my opinion, it deserves more love.

The formula is quick to dry and pretty much smudge proof – once it dries it sticks for the whole day. The colour payoff impresses me -one small flick and a sweep along your lashline and you are good to go. The applicator is a thin and flexible brush. I quite like the brush tip as  I can be very precise with my cat flick. For those of you that prefer a pen liner this is not the product for you.  The best part about the product is that it does not budge from your lashline with wear. Those with hooded eyes can concur that the smudged eyeliner cut crease is not a good look. The only con is that due it’s adhesive nature after 12 hours of wear I find that it flakes off instead of moving about your eyelids – almost like crackled nail polish!

    I wish I was an eyeliner girl but always end up making such a mess whenever I give anything a go other than a quick swipe of gel liner on my waterline! I’m so glad you’ve found your holy grail product though, and it’s definitely something I’ll look into next time I’m feeling brave enough to give some flicks a go!

    • This year we submit our dissertations electronically. I handed in my first submission of my dissertation on Friday, I then proceeded to resubmit over the weekend because I’m a perfectionist. Today it is officially complete, no more changes! The beast is done and I patiently await the fate of my degree.
    • I swear this will be me by the time I hand in my dissertation in March, I must be a crazy person because I want to do further study as well...
