Welcome to a full week of eyeliner reviews from my latest finds from March 2011! Each review will be number 1 – 7.
First up is this Love Clover pencil and liquid eyeliner which caught my eye because of the super cute design. And you can never have enough black eyeliners, right!?
Love Clover is a cute brand but it’s hard to get hold of so I rarely buy it.
Certain Japanese brands always use Western models. Sometimes it works, sometimes not so much. ..These liners are really cute in light pink packaging and swirly writing.
Generally speaking Japanese liners are fantastic and if you want something really long lasting then this is what to go for.
The pencil liner is a chunky black one which is quite matte and fairly smooth to apply. It leaves quite a strong black line and works quite well on the waterline although not effortlessly (there is slight drag).
The liquid liner is similar to a lot of other pen liquid liners – I find most of these too ‘weak’ in that the line and pigment isn’t dark enough.
Although by many standards the liquid liner is good I didn’t like it at all – I felt that there wasn’t enough ink running through it, meaning it felt dry and the nib was a bit too ‘long’ making it hard to draw the line in one go (which is what I prefer to do).
The pencil liner is fine:
My liquid liner never looks THIS crap. But I really struggled with the liner and it was just too dry for my liking. Pencil liner works on the waterline but quickly starts to move off the area and into my wrinkles below!
Not worth the time and money, alas, there are so many liners to choose from I would not repurchase.
I bought these from adambeauty.com
