Who doesn’t love a good eyeliner flick and a smudge of black eyeliner? Personally, i don’t feel properly made up if i don’t have some sort of liner or flick with my makeup, it instantly makes the eyes pop and makes me look more awake.
Being already a fan of the Loreal liquid eyeliner for years (total dupe of Lancome Artliner!), alternating between the super black and the colored ones (review!), you can well imagine i got excited about the new line of Super Liners from the Line of Beauty range.*
My favorite was the Super Liner Blackbuster* – the marker type pen that will give a thick 60’s flick suitable for dramatic eyes and nights out. Although my friend Tracey noticed it didn’t wear too great on her, smudging like no tomorrow – on me it wear fine, lasted all day and it didn’t need retouching. Maybe because i always use a primer and had a good base to stick too? I don’t know, it just worked for me and i enjoyed using it.
Also was pleasantly surprised by the eyebrow pencil Brow Artist*, is an amazing dupe of an old favorite – that type half pencil, half wax with a little brush to tame the hairs. The texture is not too hard or too soft, just right. The colour (03 Brunette) lasted trough the wave of oil that my skin tends to produce after a few hours, so thumbs up.
The Super Liner Perfect Slim* is ideal for fine definition and custom flicks, leaves room to create the skinniest line or build it up for an intense look. I used it on my waterline instead of kohl and it lasted quite well. I kept a few cotton buds and eye makeup remover for tiny re-touches on the application.
Very rarely i use a kohl pencil and i never line my water line, suppose i feel is too much for my daily work wear as i already have dark hair and sallow skin. I made an exception with the Super Liner GelMatic Waterproof* to test its efficacy – it kinda smudged after an hour and i didn’t feel is black enough. Is more suitable for that grungy, smudgy look that Twilight fans and Kristen Steward sports, if i was to choose i would get the Avon Shock Liner instead.
Eyeliner flick made with the Loreal Super Liner Blackbuster, picture taken after a days work so there is a little smudge and mascara fallout. Bushy brows filled in with the Super Liner Brow Artist in 03 Brunette.
