I finished my finals yesterday! Yay! Spring Break!!!
So today I am reviewing the Milani Liquid Eye liquid like eyeliner pencil
What do I think of this product?
I have wanted to try this eyeliner for months actually. Hollyannaeree on her YouTube channel, raves about this eyeliner and uses it all the time!
It took me a super long time get my hands on this eyeliner because everywhere I went it was sold out. T_T. And I didn't want to buy it online and pay for the $6 shipping because to me, the liner would cost $13, which is not money saving when shopping for makeup. =P
So last month, I finally saw this at a Walgreens I think and I got it!
This pencil eyeliner has a very very creamy and soft formula. It's not oily or thick and it glides on smoothly and beautifully! The color is also very black and pigmented! Because it is so soft, it might be hard to draw a thin line, but what you can do is get a small brush or an eyeliner brush, apply some product onto the brush, and use the brush to draw a thin line for your eyeliner.
However, sadly this eyeliner does not work for me. =( This is probably because my eyelids are rather oily....>.> and easily causes smudging for creamy products. I have tried using this eyeliner in a variety of ways such as:
- on my tightline, lashline, and a thin eyeliner line
- on my tightline, lashine, and then a liquid liner on top
- only on my tightline
and the list continues, but one way or another it smudges. =/
I have found out however, that if I just swatch it on the back of my hand. It dries quickly and does not smudge much when I rub it. However, this might be because my hand is not oily but my eyelids are. Also, I have a small eyelid fold (or small double eyelid) so it is easy for the eyeliner to smudge to the top of my eyelids when the skin folds over.
Here are a couple swatches:
If your eyelids are not oily, then I think this a good product to try! However, if you do have oily eyelids and/or if you have a small eyelid fold, I do not recommend this eyeliner because it may have a tendency to smudge. It is affordable, and sold in a variety of places.
So I hope you liked this review and it was helpful. For the people done with finals, congratz! And for those of you who have yet to be done, good luck! Thank you for reading and I will see you soon!
