New from Make Up For Ever is the Ink Liner Matte Liquid Eyeliner ($27 CAD) that comes equipped with a precision felt tip and a matte and intense black formulation. As you may know, liquid eyeliners are not my choice of tool when it comes to drawing a sharp eyeliner. So how did this one stand up to the challenge, read on to find out.......
The Ink Liner comes in a simple tube with a felt tip applicator. The felt tip is quite fine so you have lots of control on how thick of a line to draw.
Unique to this Ink Liner, the formulation has a matte finish, as opposed to the traditional shiny finish. The liner is incredibly pigmented and intense, one swipe is enough to make an opaque line. The formulation sets very quickly as well.
However, the downside of this formulation is that it is not at all waterproof. Hence, this liner smudges like crazy! The lightest bit of moisture will cause a full-on racoon eye.
Here is a simple winged liner I did using the Ink Liner.
I like the simple packaging design and I really appreciate the intense and matte formulation. However, the wear of this liner was a let down, an absolute no go if you live in humid weather or have oily skin.
Make Up For Ever is available online and in stores at Sephora.
