I am a daily liquid liner user, and while I have been writing this blog I have been a devoted user of pen liners (everything from Revlon Colorstay Liquid Liner to Kat Von D Trooper) but I actually learned how to do my liquid liner using these ink well/pot style liners. Lately, I have been getting sick of how quickly pen liners can dry out and how they can (not always do, to be clear) lack pigment. I found myself unhappy with the liquid liners I had open and so (of course) I made a trip to Sephora and got the Make Up For Ever Ink Liner.

The Make Up For Ever Ink Liner is a ink well/pot style liquid liner with a long, fine tip which makes it easy to use. The tip is also in that sweet spot where its flexible enough to hug the lash line and stiff enough to get a good flick (its very tricky to do both well, let me tell you). The pigment is rich, depositing ultra black matte liner. I also love how this formula is more liquidy (thats a word, right?) than a pen liner, so there is more play and manipulation (if you don’t do liquid liner daily you might not enjoy this feature).

You do have to dip the nib back into the pot between doing each eye (at least) but I find that pen liners can dry out and then I need to draw on the back of my hand to get it going again, so its not really all that cumbersome (in retrospect). I love the matte finish, I have always preferred the matte black set that gels set to while most liquid liners dry more glossy, but gel liners are kind of a mess (for me, but this is very personal) and I prefer liquids (easier to work with for me).

This liner really covers all the bases for me, it lasts all day too (note that I am not prone to smudging with my eye makeup). It is a bit hard to get off (this stuff literally gets all over my face when I take it off, some of the places I find it honestly astound me, it gets everywhere!) but I just use plenty of makeup remover and it eventually comes off.

You can get this liner at Make Up For Ever stores, online and at Sephora for $23.

The rundown: A+

Completely random aside, I have been obsessed with these two videos (oneΒ which is quite nerdy,Β and twoΒ which is quite catchy). I know they are relatively popular, so you may have heard of them already, but I just wanted to share. I know they are quite silly, but I just love them. Let me know if you like them, and I hope you don’t mind this little aside.
