review ~ eyeliner pencil

liquid liner and gel liner are great, but when I’m in a hurry(i.e. woke up late for a 9am meeting) I rely on my pencil liner for a quick, error free tight line around my lashes and waterline.

I’ve never tried any milani makeup, although I passed by the aisle every single cvs visit. since I’m not liking my current pencil liner and they are having a buy 1 get 1 50% off sale, I picked up milani liquif’eye metallic eye liner pencil in 01 black and I’m not regretting it. read on to find out why~~~~

all pencils were sharpened before swatches, so no foul play Smile

test drive 1: pigmentation

no primer with a single stroke
R to L: Milani Liquif’eye, Dior Crayon eyeliner in black, MUFE Aqua Eyes in matte black and L’oreal Wear Infinite Soft Powder Eyeliner in ebony

clearly milani is the most pigmented. it’s also very creamy and soft. 2nd place goes to MUFE. Dior is last here as it’s very dry and hard.

test drive 2: “smudginess”

rub once. again, the winner goes to milani. it barely smudged.

after rubbing pretty hard for more than 10 times.

winner! I wore it today without any primer and it started to smudge a little in the outer corner after 4hrs. I wonder what can this baby do with primer on.

ironically, it’s the cheapest and it outshines the others. if you’re interested, get it now from cvs as they’re having buy 1 get 1 50% of this week. I picked up 3D Glitzy glamour gloss in 40 as my other item.

sephora has jack black lip balm set for $10 (save $5). it comes in black tea & blackberry and grapefruit & ginger.  can’t wait to try this highly rave lip balm.

Wow, the Milani one is so pigmented AND it didn't smudge on your hand.

Hopefully though it won't smudge on your eyes when used with primer. =)

Thanks for the review hun~

Cheap and effective? Niice! I'd totally try it but I'm terrible with pencils. (I'm a liquid e/s type of girl) You got a great deal on the Jack Black! :D

Wow~ The Milani liner seems pretty promising! hahaha I have a smudging problem with the MUFE liner. :( which was very very disappointing considering the price I paid for it.

Do update us about the lip balm set~
