Recently I decided to give L’Oreal’s HIP Cream Eyeliner a try. Combine the cute curious little cream-liner pot with the “Buy one, get one free” sign flashing before my eyes, and it’s a done deal.
At first, I was kind of hesitant when I saw the slant tip applicator brush it came with. I am a liquid liner devotee, and cream is still fairly new to me. I was in total shock at how easily it just glided on, and in a perfect line! Not only that, but the color (Black 905) was bold (guess that’s why they call it High Intensity Pigments) and didn’t smudge at all!
Since I loved L’Oreal’s Telescopic mascara so much, I decided to review the accompanying liner. I wear eyeliner nearly every day, and I love the consistency of this product. (I use Black #810.) The tip is a stiff felt tip rather than a brush, which I usually don’t like, but the flow is thick, luscious black that dries matte.
This eyeliner takes some finesse to apply (as most liquid liners do), so I wouldn’t recommend this liner for beginners. As well, it doesn’t dry very quickly, so take care to not blink or apply mascara before it’s set.
Smoky eyes are a big hit right now, and everyone wants to know how to get the sexy effect without looking like you slept in your makeup. Enter this limited edition product from Revlon, one of my drugstore purchases this weekend. (See how much money I spend on helping you guys out? I’m so awesome.) All I could think about the whole time was: “You’re thinkin’ up your white lies, and puttin’ on your bedroom eyes”…ah, REO Speedwagon. You touch my life in so many ways.
I often ignore the directions, but the packaging gave a helpful tip: “Tap applicator to remove excess.” Why do I never listen?
I use eyeliner nearly every day I put on makeup, and it’s also one of the products I get the most questions about because it’s hard to apply perfectly. Pencil liner smudges and moves, while liquid requires an experienced hand and can look overdone. So when I saw L’Oreal’s Mistake-Proof Marker eyeliner, I had to try it. Who could resist an allegedly easy solution to our multitude of lining problems? After all, the package claims the flow is “controlled and continuous so you can easily follow the contour of the eye without skipping – no need to dip in the bottle”, and that it won’t smudge.
