Cover girl Liquiline Blast Eyeliner Pencil in Green Glow and Blue Boom Review

I got someone to purchase these Cover girl Liquiline Blast Eyeliners for me from Canada just to try them out! Cover girl products aren’t sold in the UK…

Liquiline Blast Eyeliner:

With liquiline blast, you’ll get all the intensity and staying power of a liquid with the ease and blendability of a waterproof pencil. Use the liner as-is for intense definition or smoke-it-out with the built-in smudger end for a subtle, smoky look.

The pencil comes in six shades:

I have a ton of black, blue, brown liners so I went for two interesting shades, Green Glow 460 and Blue Boom 450 – two brights that look almost out of place.

I am super fussy about my eye pencils – I can’t bear anything that is hard and scratchy but at the same time, I want something that will stay put all day. It must work on my waterline too! It’s a tall order…So first off the pencils – I am always concerned when choosing bright shades from cheaper brands because I find the coloured pencils can be less pigmented than the black and browns. And scratchy.

These two brights don’t disappoint visually – they are super bright, an electric blue and a bright acid green.

Texture wise they are LOVELY. So creamy and easy to apply, similar to Urban Decay’s 24/7 pencils, which I adore.

Each pencil as a smudger on the end. It’s a weird one, made of robber and sort of half rounded, half a hoof shape. I didn’t like using this although it does work, I felt it tugged the skin around my eyes too much.

They say this pencil is waterproof and will stay put…it does last very well actually but I’d say calling it waterproof is putting it a bit far. It does start to run eventually (I have SUPER watery eyes though) but the result is the same with almost any eye pencil I use regardless of price.

It’s certainly superior, I think to pencils of a similar price range like NYX or GOSH ones. I think they’re better than my Shu Uemura Drawing Pencils too – less waxy.

One thing though, is that because they are so soft you have to be careful how you sharpen it. You need to use a GOOD sharpener, not the one you’ve had in your Take That pencil case since 1997, and it’s better to chill the pencil a bit. Otherwise it breaks off.

On the eye:

I’d buy this pencil again if I could find someone to buy them for me, and also if they brought out more interesting colours. I won’t buy black liners any more unless they are interesting in some shape or form.

What do you think?
