By Terry is one of those brands that are super super luxe – every time I get something from the brand it feels like a naughty treat.
I first spotted this purple liner on someone – it was just stunning, the hue of purple is spot on. Not to red so it looks bruise-y, but not so blue that it looks…blue.
The eyeliner was this – Ligne Blackstar Intense Liquid Eyeliner Precise Tattoo – a waterproof ink eyeliner pen.
This liquid liner is very much like a pen, a sort of thick nibbed felt tip.
I don’t think this kind of eyeliner suits everyone because I know some people find liquid liner very trick to apply. This nib is somewhat stiff – it takes some getting used too. I find floppier type liquid liner pens easier to use. However – with some practise, it works quite well and does a neat line, although I had to apply carefully and applied 2 layers for it to really show up.
With this brush you can do a thin or thick line:
The ink runs through the pen very well indeed – I hate it when ink liners like this have inconsistent ink flow. This one has lots of pigment and is nice and ‘wet’ so you aren’t always having to shake it to get the product out.
You know how this is a waterproof/tattoo formula? They weren’t kidding. The colour:
How perfect is that purple!?
Anyway as I was saying – whilst this is quite ‘liquid’, you will find that once it dries, it is set. I mean SET. I mean, this is not coming off even in a storm. This is not coming off in an explosion. This is NOT coming off. Even when I used heavy duty eye make up remover I was still left with a fine pinkish-stain from this liner. If you need iron-tight, this is it.
This does also come in black, brown and a beautiful ocean colour. Pigmentation is very good so if you like the applicator and formula, it’s well worth the investment because I am finding that many liquid liners won’t wear the whole day on me.
For me, it’s not the applicator or formula that wins, it’s this gorgeous, gorgeous purple that make my brown eyes stand out.
I’ll definitely seek out Ocean Spirit one day in this liquid eyeliner.
Recommended for people who want a truly long lasting liquid eyeliner in pen form.
This is £24.50 from Spacenk.
