Having run out of my usual benefit liquid eye liner I decided to try a more cheaper option. Some of my friends use this and recommended it to me. There's nothing fancy about this it's just a tiny pot with a long handle like shown in the picture above. The pot is quite smell but is completely full. You just twist open the lid and it has the application brush on the end of it, similar to nail varnish applicators, some I've had before are just hard sticks but this one has a small soft brush on the end of the stick making it easier to apply the eye liner. There isn't much information on the pot but there isn't really anything you need to know as this is pretty self explanatory.
For anyone who doesn't know how to apply this you usually apply this to your eye lid against your eyelashes to create a thick or thin black line (you can also get these in browns and other colours) you can do many different styles with these creating flicks at the end or even swirls depending on what look you are going for. It took me years to practice having a steady hand at doing this but now I'm brilliant at it and can even do it on other people (yay me) but I know a lot of people struggle to do straight lines and get it to look good as well but trust me practice makes perfect.
You usually apply this after doing all your make up except your eyes but you can put eye shadow and things on before you put this on. Applying this was really easy, it just glided over my eye lid perfectly, although there is always a lot on the brush it spreads evenly without dripping any where on your face, because of the small application brush at the end it allows me to get right in the corners of my eyes without getting it in my eye or even on the bottom of my eye, this of course takes a steady hand and even I do it wrong some times. I always flick this out to do this is really easy, just stretch your eye lid out so the skin is tight and as you go along your eye lid start to move it up in a curved shape towards the tip of your eyebrow but stop just before you start touching, even though this looks big when you open your eye you'll have a nice small curved flick making your eyes look bigger and more elegant if it isn't too thick.
This dries really fast within a minute it'll be completely dry, looking over my handy work I'll notice this can go a little streaky sometimes so I just go over it again and create a thick block black line and it's done. This is really easy to wipe off if you have made a mistake or if your just wiping all of your make up off. If I make a mistake I will usually wet a cotton bud and dab it on the place I went wrong but to wipe this off I just use a normal make up wipe and it comes off straight away. I've been using this for around 3 weeks now and I wear it pretty much every day and it's showing no signs of running out yet, the signs that it is running out though are that your lines because more streaking so just pop to boots buy another one for £2.99 and you're sorted.
