The biggest challenge for me is to look for the perfect eyeliner. I used to use Maybelline’s gel liner, but it creases on me. So I was looking something that doesn’t crease.
I ended up with this liquid liner, as I needed to buy a Lancome product (at Macy’s for the gift :p), and I also saw good reviews on the internet.
I didn’t have much experience with liquid liner, but some reviews said this one is really easy to use, even for beginner!
I was in the store, actually I wanted it in brown, because for daily use I prefer a more natural look. Unfortunately, they didn’t have brown in stock, and I didn’t want black. So, I chose Aunergine, some desrcibes it as dark blue-violet, I do see it more purple than blue. It’s a really pretty color, a little shimmery but really subtle, great for both everyday look and elegant look.
The sponge tip is really easy to control, I was brave enough to use it right on my eyes without any practices (come to think of it I really should have, as I needed to go out after that), and it turned out to be just fine! So for all the makeup beginners out there, If I can do it, so can you!
The first day I used it, I didn’t use other eye shadows, eyeliner only, but this color is so great it made me look wide awake. More importantly, it lasted all day!!
At the end of the day, I thought it might be a challenge to remove it. However, it’s no hard work! In fact, it’s so easy you shouldn’t even rub it. Rubbing can remove it easily, so if you like rubbing your eyes, maybe this is not the one for you.
Finally, the price…it’s lancome! So I guess you don’t expect it to be cheap. I do think it’s a little pricy. USD29, after using it a few times I feel like I am emptying the tube already. So I don’t know how long it’s going to last.
