Now, I've mentioned that I usually buy eyeliner pencils on my yearly trips to India, because I prefer the sheer depth of blacks I find there. They do not compare the most of the blacks I've encountered in the US! I feel similarly about liquid eyeliners--I usually pick them up in India too. Not only are the liquid eyeliners there much more pigmented but because India is a tropical country, the formulas are made for the tropical climate--that is, the ones I pick up usually do not smudge or smear. While I've found a couple in the US that I love, they are usually niche brands like Marbella or Eyeko--definitely not something you can run to your local drugstore and pick up! Until now, that is!
These eyeliners are amazing! Incredibly pigmented, they do indeed dry super fast to a gorgeous matte finish. Now, there's nothing lackluster about these mattes! You know what I mean, some mattes just tend to look kinda dull or even a little grayed out. Not these! Even under my super bright studio lights, take a look at how bright these shades are! Except for the green shade, which more of a grey-green than not. And let me tell you right now...THEY. DO. NOT. BUDGE. When I wore the black out on the town, it remained immaculate all night long and when I came home, I removed it with my usual makeup remover wipes so I didn't think much off it. Now, imagine my surprise when I swatched them for these pics, then went off to shower, completely forgetting to use a makeup remover to take the swatches off. A good body wash and pouf later, I stepped out of the shower and these were still on my hand! You can't beat staying power like that! But, you must be wondering if then they're a pain to remove. Nope! A good oil-based makeup remover will take it all off just as easily.
The last thing I want to mention is that tip which I love! The tapered felt tip gives so much precision and control to your lines. You can go for a medium thickness, go super fine or go all out for a bold, wing tip. That tip will let you do whatever your heart desires that day. At that price, I highly recommend giving these a whirl! I promise you won't be disappointed!
