Welcome to a full week of eyeliner reviews from my latest finds from March 2011! Each review will be number 1 – 7.
Koji are known for making eye liners and their 1 day long lasting range is very popular in Japan. This Long Lasting Waterproof Eyeliner in Deep Black caught my eye as it’s supposed to be:
- Very dark black
- Long Lasting
- Non Staining
Here it is in it’s packaging:
Fine-tipped and pen-like applicator brush is soft and flexible, creating a perfectly even and gap-free line for naturally defined eyes. Quick drying polymers make eyes impervious to sweat, water and sebum, wonderfully defining eyes for up to 24 hours.
Made from non-organic dyes for quick removal using makeup remover. I actually found this came off quite easily with warm water (I mean reasonably warm!).
Here is the liner – it’s a pretty standard liner in terms of presentation:
You must get rid of the excess on the side of the container. It has a very rich ‘vinyl’ type feel to it and it’s very dark opaque black which I like. No messing about and having to layer it!
The brush is surprisingly easy to use. It’s a bit stiffer at the base and loose near the ends. It is NOT hard to get a good line with this.
Here is what the liner looks like. It leaves a very striking line:
Overall this is a brilliant liquid eyeliner. I don’t like pot eyeliners like this but has a fantastic brush which makes it easy to apply and once it dries it will stay all day long. It’s also pigmented and a really deep black.
The only thing I don’t like about it is how it has a slightly glossy finish. I’d prefer a liner which had a matte finish.
