Product Empties – Black Liquid Liners

Black Liquid Eyeliners

Black Liquid Eyeliners

So I have been having a makeup clear out these past few weeks in an attempt to streamline and minimise my collection so its more manageable. I am by no means finished so I would say Its a work in progress. I’m a complete beauty addict but I noticed I  wasn’t using a lot of my collection because I reach for the same products because I am lazy and get stuck in a rutt. I have a few of these de clutter style posts lined up over the next month,

I’m terrible at keeping eyeliners & mascara’s past their best, so I thought it best to start my de cluttering with those as they were easiest. This post is all liquid eyeliners & these are all either dried out or older than 5 months (at least). I am a real liquid liner addict, as some of you may know so I do have quite a few on the go at any one time.

Urban Decay Ink For Eyes

This is a waterproof liner & the fine nib on this is so precise and flexible. Its very, very good at achieving that neat, close to the lash line eyeliner look. It glides on easily and you can apply the liner to look quite subtle or build up to a more bold look. Its extremely pigmented and a deep black which dries quickly to a nice glossy finish. It also stays put, without smudging all day / night long. The colour also stays intense all day.

Soap & Glory Supercat Eyeliner Pen

This has a more of a felt tip style nib and is a lot thicker than the others. I like it for quick application and you can achieve a bold, thick, dramatic line with ease. Again the pigment is very black and it dries quite quickly. This does bleed a little on me so I would recommend using an eye primer if you have wrinkly eyelids like me. The liner lasts a really long time which makes it a great affordable option.

L’Oreal Super Liner Ultra Precision

The sponge style nib on this eyeliner is SO long, which makes applying the liner incredibly fuss free. One application / line looks smooth, neat and is effortless. I love the flexibility of the nib and I find it makes doing a winged / cat eye look extremely easy. You don’t have to go over the same spot again & again with this liner, the colour is intense even after just one application and it never smudges. I have repurchased both of the L’Oreal liners included in this post so many times. They never seem to dry out & the colour never looks dull on the eyes. I just LOVE these so much.

Black Liquid Eyeliner Pens

Charlotte Tilbury The Feline Flick*

This is a fantastic liner for doing the classic cat eye look. The nib is quite short but tappers to a very fine nib, making it easy to get up close to the lash line & also create that winged out flick that goes to a lovely precise point. This liner glides on with ease and never looks patchy or dull. This is such a great quality liquid liner and very easy to use. What I would say (and it makes me a little sad that I have too) is this did dry out quite quickly. I might have been to blame for that as you have to make sure the lid is on properly but mine didn’t ever snap shut. Its still a fab liner & even I can do a killer feline flick with this!

L’Oreal Super Liner Black Lacquer

This has the same sponge nib at the previous L’Oreal liner and I love the flexibility and length of them. This Black Lacquer liner has a more rich black colour which dries with a vinyl matte finish. It looks so good on the eye and I think the finish makes the colour a lot more intense. This is one of my favourite eyeliners ever because the colour is just so intense and out of them all its the oldest and still going strong but it needs throwing out because it is old not because the colour isn’t good.

I would repurchase all of these, even the Charlotte Tilbury one, which was a really good liner, despite it not lasting as long as I hoped. If I was pushed to say which ones I would recommend the most it would have to be the L’Oreal liner, any of them because in terms of price and quality they always deliver, always!

What are your favourite liquid liners and are you like me and hang on to them longer than you should?

Urban Decay Eyeliners – A Wardrobe For Your Eyes

Urban Decay Eyeliners

I’m that person who loves to wear eyeliner & looking over my stash of liners (mostly liquid) they’re 90% black. I don’t feel like myself without a winged liner. I have been wearing eyeliner since I was 15 so that’s 21 years now (cries) I’m obsessed with looking for the perfect liner & I was excited to learn that Urban Decay released some new liners into their range, and I’ve been enjoying them all. I reviewed the Cream Liner here if you’d like to read that. Urban Decay has dubbed this latest release ‘A Wardrobe For Your Eyes‘ which I like, as we like to switch it up and wear certain liners to create specific looks. A girl needs options, right?! Here are my thoughts on their latest releases.

Urban Decay Black Eyeliners

Urban Decay Ink for Eyes Waterproof Precision Eye Pen in Perversion

This is Urban Decay’s felt pen liner has a fancy 360-degree nib which makes applying eyeliner so much easier. This user-friendly ultra fine nib means that even eyeliner novices are able to apply their eyeliner with ease. It allows you to move the nib in any direction without dragging or pulling at the skin, it also means your eyeliner is much neater and looks fab.

This Ink For Eyes is super black and dries to a glossy/shiny finish that won’t budge. Take it from me a girl with oily eyelids once this liner has dried its there until the bitter end. I like how this fine tipped liner is able to create the finest of fine cat flicks to the most dramatic bold lines. It allows you precision and the bold intense Perversion Black colour does not fade throughout the day. If you’re like wearing liquid liner you must give this a go, you won’t regret it.

24/7 Velvet Glide-On Eye Pencil / All Nighter Eyeliner / Ink For Eyes

24/7 Velvet Glide-On Eye Pencil in Black Velvet

This is Urban Decays more Velvet version of their popular 24/7 pencils. This new formula is a little more powdery and dries to a matte velvet finish. It is still intense in colour even when blended out to create the perfect smoky eye. It’s quite hard to create a precise line with this pencil but if you’re a Smoky Eye fan then you will love the ease at which this applies and needs little work to create that sultry smoky look. It’s soft in texture and you have just enough time to blend it, once blended this 24/7 Velvet liner is there until you decide to take it off. It’s waterproof and very long wearing. So I would say this is the ultimate pencil for creating a soft smoky eye.

This pencil is paraben free and contains Jojoba Oil so it is moisturising & won’t dry out your eyes.

Urban Decay Perversion Eyeliners

Urban Decay All Nighter Eyeliner in Perversion*

Now, this is seriously intense in colour, I wish I could say that I’m hip enough to have tested this after an all-night party but sadly not. I have however worn it for some long days & have to say this stays put like no other liner. It is bold, and intense in colour & once on the eye, it won’t budge. This is a twist up liner which I like as I always lose my sharpener (OK I’m just lazy), but the packaging is slick and the twist up pencil makes it always to ready to use.

This eyeliner is waterproof and contains moisturising Vitamin E & is also Vegan
