I have a confession to make. I’m terrified of liquid eyeliner. A few years ago, I upgraded from pencil to gel, but I have resisted the switch to liquid, until now.
Last month, I went shopping with a friend. She was in the market for a new eyeliner, so we stopped by the Nordstrom makeup counter. I had always believed that liquid was messy and difficult to apply. But watching the salesperson sweep the slick black fluid across her eyelids, made my morning routine of gel and brush seem like a giant hassle.
Two weeks later, and I am absolutely in love with Dior’s liquid eyeliner (Sephora, $33). Unlike other liners that come with a separate brush, this product has the brush built in to an easy to use pen. Just twist the bottom to dispense the fluid, and gently apply the jet back liquid to your eyelids. This product glides on so smoothly that even after several cups of coffee, I still get an even line. It’s practically foolproof.
While I’m still using my gel liner for daytime–the black is a bit intense for work–I really love how easy it is to achieve the perfect winged eyeliner with this product. Who knows? Maybe this weekend, I’ll decide to breakout the full Cleopatra. Then again, Elizabeth Taylor, I’m not.
Whether you like a little bit of liner or a lot, this product really takes the guess work out of liquid liner. No more fear that you’ll drip the oily fluid into your eye and blind yourself for life. What? Don’t pretend I’m the only one who was afraid that might happen.
