Anyone who knows me is aware that I am a connoisseur of liquid eyeliner.
Ever since I was about 16 I wanted to perfect the art of the cat eye eyeliner and get the perfect retro look. Little did I know it wouldn’t be easy! I tried numerous felt-tipped pens and they all dried up much too quickly and felt like a waste of money. Other liners would smudge and fade throughout the day. I thought all hope was lost until I stumbled upon the liquid eyeliner that would change the game for me!
Maybelline New York Ultra-Liner Liquid Liner, Waterproof, Black 135L-01 , .25 fl oz (7.3 ml) is by far the best liquid liner I have found thus far at this price point! The brush is thin but flexible and allows me to get a perfect line or build it up into a winged look. The formula is probably my favorite part though. I could cry, go swimming, and stand in the middle of a typhoon and my eyeliner would still be there at the end of it!
There seems to be some sort of latex-y ingredient in it because when I do wash it off at night it almost peels off but I don’t mind because it is so great at staying put all day long! I’ll admit it…I’ve slept in my makeup once or twice…but this looks just as good the second day as it did the first!
Now it’s truth time: this liner DOES take practice…but the bottom line is…IT’S WORTH IT. If you have a special event or a beach vacation and need your eyeliner to stay put all day and long into the evening – this is your holy grail!
