Welcome to a full week of eyeliner reviews from my latest finds from March 2011! Each review will be number 1 – 7.
This rather oddly named eyeliner from Naris Up is curiously called Kuromegachi. How do you pronounce that? I don’t know. I was attracted (attracted?!) to this eyeliner because of the way it’s got that thick angled cut.
A lot of liners are like this (KATE, POP Beauty) although not all are equal. I have found a lot of liners with this kind of feature a bit too waxy to work on my waterline.
Naris Up is yet another one of those Japanese brands that have lots of sub brands and unusual products – well worth checking out. Here is the pencil – the packaging is really plain. You’d easily miss this in a make up bag!
The liner is cut to a really sharp angle. A nice way to use this is to place it along the rims of your eye and pull it across a few times.
This liner IS soft enough to do this:
I really like this liner! It’s one of the best angled cut eyeliners I have tried. It’s very pigmented, very black, very creamy and works like a dream to line the inner rims of the eye.
Here is a swatch from using the pencil from different angles:
The only problem with this liner is that because it’s quite creamy it will run a bit, especially if you have watery eyes like me. It doesn’t quite set to a fully waterproof finish so be aware of this if you have oily skin, watery eyes or…er, blink a lot!
Verdict: Really like this liner. Admittedly a lot of soft black pencils will do the same thing but I like the angled element!
I bought this from eBay for £8.
