Urban Decay has released an eyeliner as part of its All Nighter collection. It doesn't budge, but it's easy to remove AND it's easy to apply.
I can't say I would wear black eyeliner on a daily basis or even weekly basis. But I do like to go all out with my makeup every now and then. When I do, a black liner is a crucial part of that.
There are a few fundamental problems I always face with black pencils. First, they can wear off a little on the blue toned side. They can smudge just a bit too much and your eye makeup goes from glam to panda eyes as the day progresses. Sometimes, they can be too hard to blend it out to a nice smoked out effect. Then there are the really waterproof guys you can't get it off so you walk around for a week looking like you haven't washed your face.
All Nighter Liner €19.50
I tried Urban Decay All Nighter Eyeliner last night at an event. It was 27 degrees at the time so I honestly felt like my makeup was running down my face, especially because I had a bit to walk to get to the venue. When I looked in the mirror I was pleasantly surprised. Not only had this liner stayed put but it looked like I had just applied it.
By the end of the night, it still looked as if I had just applied it, and, luckily, removing it wasn't as hard as I thought, although I did have to use a good eye makeup remover as my face wash alone didn't quite cut it.
The texture is smooth and soft and it is very easy to apply and blend. I gave it to reluctant eyeliner user, Senior Editor Miriam, to try and she was very pleased indeed at how effective it is and stole it off me.
If you are a black liner lover, you need to invest in this one. Especially in this heat.
What eyeliner do you usually go for? Do you like kohl, gel or liquid?
