I used to love Lancome's khol eyeliner for it can really give that intense black, but i lost it & i was able to find a good substitute for it which is the Ever Bilena Eyeliner Pencil. The EB eyeliner pencil is also smoldering black & it's great to wear especially if you are going for a dark smokey eye make-up. The only problem that i encounter is that lately,my skin went from oily-to-extremely oily because of the super hot climate that we have here. On which, when i wore eyeliner & it smudges, i mostly end up with a raccoon eye.
When i bought the Revlon Colorstay foundation, i also bought the Colorstay eyeliner since the SA said that it stays really long & won't smudge on you. I let her sales-talked me on which i ended up buying it too. I have been using it for quite sometime so i think it's time that i give a feedback about it.
Revlon® Colorstay™ Eyeliner glides on adding drama and definition to your eyes. Waterproof formula won’t smear, smudge or fade for up to 16 hours. Available in 8 shades.
It's an automatic pencil & what's great about it is that it got a sharpener at the end so you can sharpen it when you need to. I'm terrible in using it though for i always end up breaking the liner instead of sharpening... but after chopping half of it off from too much clumsiness, i was able to finally sharpen it.
I purchased this mostly because i need a good liner for tightlining & waterlining.
Let's let the pictures do the talking from now...
I tightlined my eye, making it sure that i only apply it at the top since i want to see if it will really stay on. Sorry about the brow..wasn't able to pluck prior to this.
I left my lower lash line bare so to know if it will smudge later on...
Again, i only apply it at the upper waterline. I did not apply any liner at the top, so it's only mascara.
I went out shopping... after 4 hours of grueling torture because of the heat & pollution, this is how it looked like afterward.
So, what do you think?
Did it stay true to its promise?
Let's take a closer look..
Ok, i'll let you be the judge of that. Tell me what you think about it..did it stand to its claims?
But take into consideration this information before you decide for yourself:
- I have a very oily skin
- It was super HOT during the time that i tested this (like it was 35 degrees)
- I teared a bit because someone accidentally blew cigarette smoke on my eyes (then the next day, i develop a sore throat already -__-")
It's just that with automatic liners, it seems harder to disinfect it. Call me OC, but isn't it when we twist it so much & expose it to air, we risk it? So how the hell can we easily clean it? What if you didn't know that it got germs that can lead to eye infection & since we don't know how to fully disinfect it we got some of it on our eyes?
When i disinfect pencil liners, i dip the tip in the alcohol, wait for it to dry then i sharpen it. Then i dip the tip again, wait for it to dry then put the lid on. I'm only this clean freak on my liners since they are the ones that i use near my eyes. It's better to be safe than sorry,ne?
Since i want to hear what you think, i'll skip the usual pros & cons.
Colorstay liners are priced at Php 475 (approx $10) each at leading malls.
Wanna know what i think about it?
Maybe my picture will tell you what i think about it..
Don't forget to tell me what your verdict are,hunnies
Hope y'all have a great weekend!
