For as long as I can remember, I have been wearing eyeliner, I started off by using pencil liners because I dreaded the mess I would make with the liquid eyeliner and didn’t want to end up with a black eye. The liquid eyeliner became part of my daily make up routine and application has become flawless overtime since I managed the way to tackle it – starting from the inner corner of my eye and as close as I can get to my lash line (it gives the illusion of fuller lashes if you have gaps) I work my way to the outer corner of my eye, for my daily makeup, I create a small flick at the end to avoid making my eyes look too narrow.
To ease the application, I hold the applicator like a pencil, it helps with precision. And keep on standby the Bioderma Crealine H20 Solution and pointed cotton buds in case any mistakes occur.
Although I have been faithful to the Inglot Liquid Eyeliner- black 25-, I have been looking into felt tip/marker like liquid eyeliners and found drugstore brands that work really well, and are very reasonably priced too.
Here are my top three picks:
1. Super Liner Blackbuster – Loreal Paris
This is my top pick because the formula is highly pigmented and although the packaging seems like it would end up applying thick lines (which I personally don't prefer) the applicator proved otherwise. It does take a few seconds to dry but it has a long-lasting effect.
Available in Centrepoint, and retails for: RO 7.600 Each
2. Liner Feutre - Bourjois Paris
The applicator/nib is thin & long but stiff and very easy to control. There is nothing special about the packaging, however the formula is long-lasting, dries quickly and it is decently pigmented.
Available in Centrepoint, and retails for: RO 7.100 Each
3. Masterpiece, Glide & Define – Maxfactor
I instantly fell in love with the size of this eyeliner. However, because of the size, I have been carrying it around for touch ups on a long day; The pigmentation and lasting effect is not too bad and the drying time is not long either.
Available in Centrepoint, and retails for: RO 5.000 Each
Tip: Make sure the lid is closed properly because this kind of liquid eyeliner tends to dry out quickly.
