Eyeliner is a wonderful thing: it can change the apparent shape of the eye, it can make your eyes the most prominent facial features and it can make them subtily sparkle. ^-^
I think this would be my least favorite liner. It’s clumsy, not very saturated, and smudges way too easily. I also hate having to sharpen it constantly to get a good thin line — it seems kind of wasteful.
That being said, it’s the best when you make a mistake - this makes it best for a beginner. It’s a wonderful thing when you can take a clean q-tip and erase the horrible makeup line without having to completely start over.
I’d consider this to be more of a love/hate type of liner. I think it best suits the makeup expert (aka not me). It creates a beautiful saturated line with one application. If you’re a pro with a steady hand, this is a dream. Unfortunately, it takes forever to dry. Even if I’m lucky enough to get it right the first time, chances are I’ll blink or look up and smear it all over the place. It’s also really hard to correct any bad lines without looking like a raccoon. Maybe that’s just me though?
I think gel liner is a good mix of the first two. It has the precision of the liquid liner, with the forgiving nature of the pencil liner. I’d say I use gel liner the most but it’s definitely not perfect. It takes a few layers to get on a nice saturated line which is a bit frustrating.
P.S. The best thing about this liner is that you can have it for years and not even go through half of it (provided you close it properly after every brush dip). ;)
Which one works for you?
