I don’t use eyeliner very often and when I do I only apply a thin black line. Lately, I started considering buying some coloured eyeliners and looked around for a good quality one that was smudgeproof, longlasting and didn’t break the bank. I wasn’t too keen on spending lots of money on something that I probably wouldn’t have used that much. When I went to London at the beginning of the year I stopped at a Barry M counter to stock up on some of their Dazzle Dusts and saw these retractable pen eyeliners. They are available in 8 vibrant colours ranging from blue to green, from pink to the classic black. And at £3. 95, they’re a steal! I bought no.5, Kingfisher blue which is a beautiful shade of light blue that looks very intense when you apply a couple of coats.
The eyeliner is easy to apply and goes on smoothly. It doesn’t smudge at all and doesn’t run down my face giving me that horrible panda look. It is waterproof and very longlasting. Most of the time, when I apply eyeliner on my waterline it disappears after a few minutes but this doesn’t. I only had to reapply it on my waterline once throughout the day. As for the coats I applied on my upper and lower lashines, they stayed put until I took off my makeup before going to sleep. And despite being waterproof, it is very easy to remove.
(Excuse the messy application please. I just applied it quickly so you could see the beautiful colour.)
This is a retractable eyeliner so there is no need for a sharpener. This prevents those annoying accidents like sharpening too much and thus a whole chunk of eyeliner breaks off (or does that happen to me only?). However, because of that, it is not easy to get a very thin line. Also, be careful not too unscrew the liner too much as it could break off!
The eyeliner is sealed in a clear plastic wrap, so you can be assured that no one else has used the eyeliner as a tester, as I’ve seen some people do in several stores. The colour of the packaging matches the colour of the eyeliner and the size is perfect to fit in your purse.
I absolutely love this eyeliener! It’s definitely HG material. The liner is easy to apply, smudgeproof, waterproof and longlasting. It is available in 8 intense shades and it’s very cheap. I’m definitely planning on purchasing all them in the near future.
