Milani Eye Tech Perfection Eyeliner | Review

Milani Eye Tech Perfection Eyeliner





You can never ever go overboard with a black eyeliner, I think it’s the most commonly used cosmetic around the world… And why not, a black eyeliner is something that fits very well in every occasion, be it an everyday look or the dramatic bridal look, a black eyeliner is what most of us reach for to complete the effect. My favorite liquid black eyeliners are the ones which have a pen sort of applicator. That makes the application so quick and mistake proof. Here is a detailed review of the Milani Eye Tech Perfection Eyeliner.

Packaging

The packaging reminds me of The Curve Eyeliner by NYX , It has a curved body to give a better control over the application. The felt tip allows you to create a thin, medium or a heavy line, as you desire! It’s extremely comfortable to hold, beginners would love it for sure. Talking of the down side, I faced slight issue working on a winged liner with this felt tip applicator, I wish it was slightly more flexible.

Quality & Texture

The product claims to give a full color definition in one stroke, well… that isn’t really true, I need to coat 2-3 times to get a deep pigmented black line.

It gives a matte black finish, which is how I like my eyeliner to be.

Another good thing is, It dries quickly as you apply, you wouldn’t need to sit for long with your eyes closed, which is a common case with most of the liquid eyeliners. Also it saves a few extra minutes getting ready.

Wearability

The product isn’t waterproof, it is some what water resistant. It smudges easily on oily lids, so if you have oily lids, this is not the right product for you, if you don’t, make sure not to apply moisturizer on your eyelids as a part of your daily moisturizing routine.

It lasts for good 8 hours if you have powdered your eyelids prior application, else it stays well for about 6 hours.

Rating

4/5

Why it couldn’t make 5/5?

  1. The pen felt tips makes application along the ends slightly difficult, I wish it was more flexible.
  2. It smudges easily if you apply a regular moisturizer on your lids, or have oily lids naturally.

Colorbar Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner | Review

Colorbar Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner

A liquid eyeliner is a great option for a quick go to makeup or an everyday wear. I got this new Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner from Colorbar, which is one of their new launch; and have loved wearing it each day. Read on the detailed review below:

What the brand claims:

“The Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner is long-lasting and does not smudge, crack, flake or peel. With its high definition flexible felt tip applicator, one stroke is enough to define a fine or thick line. Fast drying, Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner is suitable for sensitive eyes and those who wear contact lenses too!”




Packaging

It comes in a small black plastic bottle with the band name and product details printed over. The brush wand has a silver outer body and is quite convenient for application. Talking about the brush, my liking towards  felt tip applicators is not so great. The tip is not at all flexible as claimed by the brand, one has to work with great precision for neatness. Whereas a more flexible tip would have made things more easier. Beginners  might have problems dealing with a brush like this.

At the same time, it’s non flexible nature helps neater application in the inner corners of the eye, where a flexible tip tends to go messy sometimes.

Pigmentation

The pigmentation is quite an impressing factor here.It’s deep opaque black and looks quite striking.

Texture and Quality

I personally like matte eyeliners over glossy finish. This eyeliner come in a matte texture but not matte to an extend that looks dried and stiff, which is a good thing.

I wouldn’t call it waterproof, would rather label it as water resistant. It comes off easily with slight rubbing with water.

Wear ability

The first day I wore this liner to a mall where it happily lasted for 8-10 hours! But on usual office days where your eyes tend to get watery and tired (which is absolutely not the case when you are out shopping :P) the eyeliner stays neat only up till 4-5 hours after which it starts flaking off a bit.

INR 350/-

Rating

3.5/5

Why it couldn’t make 5/5?

  1. Not absolutely waterproof as the product claims
  2. Tend to fade off after 4-5 hours
  3. The felt tip application make the application slightly challenging

Why 3.5/5?

  1. Loved the pigmentation and texture
  2. Affordable

Let me know if you have used it before, you can also suggest me some of your favorite liquid eyeliners. 🙂

Maybelline Hyper Matte Eyeliner Review

Maybelline Hyper Matte Eyeliner

Maybelline new launch – Hyper Matte Eyeliner

Maybelline has been up with new products one after the other since last few months and Maybelline Hyper Matte Eyeliner is one of those! I surely couldn’t afford to give it a miss as I wear a matte black liner almost everyday to work.

Prior this I have used Maybelline Gel Liner, Maybelline Collosal Liner, Lakme Shine lineLiner. All in matte black.

Lakme Shine Line Liner was a disappointment! It cracked a lot at the inner 1/4th corner of the eye and ended up looking messy and too dry! Since then I was just taken aback  by liquid eye-liners…

Maybelline being my all-time favourite, managed a place in my kit. Have been using  it since a week now and here is what I think about the product.

Packaging

Sleek and very light! It comes in a black and white plastic body (thank god! no handle-with-care hassle). The brush is thin enough.. not super thin I would say! The bristles have the perfect length and the brush feels really light while applying which ensures better control and application.

Product on Application

The liquid has a good enough consistency. It’s neither too thin nor too thick. On application it takes about half a minute to dry and turn matte. If you’ve used Lakme Shine Line liner, I would say that this one doesn’t look as matte as the lakme one. Also, this one doesn’t crack much in the inner 1/4th corner of the eye like the lakme liner did, but cracking is still there.

It’s water proof and smudge proof as the product claims for itself.
