Eyeliners are my thing.
I’ve tried a hell of a lot of them and over the years have found some good’uns that I keep coming back to. One of my fav brands, Urban Decay, have recently launched 4 new formats of black eyeliner which I’ve been testing out and can now reveal my thoughts on!
Ultra Intense Waterproof Cream Eye Liner & Brush: I adore gel liners as they give an effect that no other liner can – a soft, gentle line which you can build up to create a create flick in any shape you want. This gel liner is super creamy but stays put once applied so you can rely on it to keep your eyes looking smouldering all day long. The brush that is available alongside the gel is also great, thin and slanted to help apply either thin or thick lines.
Waterproof Precision Eye Pen: This may just be my favourite of the bunch. This liquid liner has the most fine nib which allows me to create the most precise cat eye flick which really does last all day. I have to use an oil (Shu Umera Cleansing Oil to be precise) to remove this in the evening as otherwise remnants can be left on the skin. This has become my handbag staple and I need to repurchase another soon.
24/7 Velvet Glide-On Eye Pencil: This is a typical black kohl crayon which I’ve been using on and underneath my waterline to create a gorgeous smokey eye. This smudges beautifully under the lower lash line with a blender brush to give a sultry effect.
All Nighter Eye Liner: This is super similar to the Glide-On Pencil but waterproof and therefore long lasting. This is perfect if you’re going to be out all day with minimal time to re-apply, or if you are planning to party the night away!
I have to admit I’ve absolutely fallen in love with these products and it almost makes me want to get rid of all my other liners as these suit every need!
They’re available online and on Urban Decay counters and I’ll definitely be topping up when I run out.
What’s your favourite type of liner? Will you be giving these a try?
