So, i am still out of my favourite favourite ever eyeliner, Lancome Art Liner in noir and i’m waiting to buy another one, because i have a lot of black eyeliner that i need to use up and i wanted to try out what i have before just buying more and more liner. An my go to liner is actually MAC fluid line, which may be suprising, because if you’ve seen my massive eyeliner review than you know i’m not super nuts about this liner. But, i have been reaching for this more than any other liner.

What i don’t like is that you have to set this liner in order for it to work, and i don’t like that (i use my MAKE UP FOR EVER HD finishing powder. its just a pure silica powder). I like to just be able to put on my liner and go, and if i want this to last i have to take a bunch of extra steps to make it last.

If you do set it, it will last all day. through thick and thin, even when i bike and i get icky and sweaty. H O W E V E R if you do not set it this product doesn’t even know the meaning of water resistant even. it is so frustrating and i’m so not into it.
**goddammit i hate when a photo looks in focus then totally isn’t, w/e you get the point**
**you can really reshape this brush with the product on the side of the container. i like it, its just too much work!**
the colour is pretty black though, which i really like. I did realize that part of what was creating all the problems with this product is that i was using the wrong brush with it. i was using a very traditional liner brush and then i switched to an angled straight brush and love it so much. i can create the thinnest line and love it, it just doesn’t work with a traditional liner brush, at least for me.

i may actually end up using up all of this liner because it is working out totally fine for me right now. I wish it would just set itself, but you can’t have everything your way. Its fine is my attitude right now, and until i can get my art liner back, i’ll stick to this. But i don’t think that i’ll ever buy it again.
i’m just too lazy. i want something to just work and work well, and i’m willing to shell out for it.
