I can’t live without liner, so if a blogger or youtuber I follow mentions anything about a liquid liner you can see the poof marks in the air, I’m off to get it and try it.
I was in search of a new liner that was easily accessible here in Jersey Channel Islands, so when I saw Hello October ( I think…) mention a Maybelline one, I knew I had to try it.
Like me, she’s super fussy about the nib and looks for what I look for, so I felt pretty confident I’d like it.
I marched down to my local Boots and picked myself up the Maybelline Master Ink Liquid Liner.
First off I’ll say I wasn’t blown away by the packaging, it’s a bit shite really, no worse than anything else I’ve used but just same same but different.
The wand was what I was most concerned about though. I don’t tend to like the really stiff felt tip ones, and favour the more brush like style. At first glance I was a tad disappointed because it looked like the felt tips I hate, but once I tried it on my hand I realised it was firm yet soft almost like a brush but not exactly.
I have to say I adore using this product. Yes it can get on my lashes but most of them do, especially if you favour this type of wand. It applies so well, I find with other types of liners I can be there for ages trying to build up a decent wing, but this just glides on and comes out strong first time. I find the wand so easy to use. It’s like it has the perfect amount of product on it once its been taking out of the “pot”, and I know I said it already but I love that the wand is not too firm. I do love me a good “brush” wand (if you get what I mean) but I’m digging this felt tip one.
If someone was to ask me what beauty product I could not live without I think my answer would be eyeliner. My ride or die liner for the past couple of years has been the Wet n’ Wild Mega liner in dark brown, but times have changed and I’ve found a new love.
I know I can’t believe it either. If you know me I think you’ll be shocked by the type of eyeliner too. I’m all about the brush applicator, the liquid consistency and last but propably most importantly, it HAS to be quick and easy to use. The Wet ‘n Wild liner provides all 3 and to be honest has had no competition up until now… Enter L’Oreal So Couture liner.
This little beauty is a now must have for me and I hate to say it but has now replaced my beloved Wet ‘n Wild. Lets talk why. First off I need to point out that the applicator is misleading. I thought it was a felt tip style but on closer inspection it is more brush like, box one ticked. Because of this brush style applicator the application of the liner comes out very freely and inky almost, box two ticked. As with all my ride or die products how easy it is to apply, rectify and usability of the product in a speedy manner is what I’m all about. Like I’m a busy girl… who likes sleeping so getting out that door on time looking put together is key.
I find that because of this type of applicator there’s less mess. It holds just the right amount of product. I find some of the liquid liners hold a lot of product. The dip in ones like the wet n wild can be the worst, and the felt tip ones, in my opinion, are stiff, hard and hardly any product comes out. I literally feel like its like dragging a HB pencil over my lid.
This L’Oreal liner just has the perfect combination for me. Its tickes all the boxes. Like with everything in life nothing is perfect so I do have two complaints. It seemed to run out / dry up very quick in comparison to the wet n wild and the one i have isn’t brown. To be fair I’ve no idea if it come in brown or not, but at the moment I am only awear that it comes in black.
I think this would be a really good liner for a beginner, not only because its easy to use but its very accessible and the price if rather keen too coming in at £££. (No ideal of the price)
So I just went to get it and it looks like its been taken off the market, of course coz i love it and need it in my life. ill email then and see what their response is. ill leave a comment down below. xo
Liner. Who can live without it? I for one can not. I’ve been trying any testing a number over the past few months, but first on the hit list is Barry M Eye Define Waterproof Liquid Liner. As we know I wear liner all day everyday, I recently ask my friends and family about my signature style and most mentioned a winged liner. As we know by now when I’m looking for makeup I need it to be quick and easy, no fuss, no mess, just lash it on and done!! Thats why for everyday wear I choose a gel liner.
I wear eye-liner everyday so I love trying out new ones. Over the past while I’ve been trying out Wet n’ Wild (liquid) Mega Liner in dark brown. I’ve also tried the turquoise but I’d wear brown and black more regularly.
This particular liner has a thin paint brush like adaptor meaning it is not stiff, I prefer this type of brush myself. I find it easier to apply and I get a more precise line.
