Make Up For Ever is releasing two eyeliners in the blackest black – Ink Liner (C$27), a brush-tip liquid liner that you can dip into an ink pot to control how much or how little colour you want; and Graphic Liner ($29), a pen liner with a felt tip application that’s easy to use. I am so excited to share Graphic Liner with you today because it is one of the very rare liquid liners, especially one released by a Western beauty brand, that does not transfer or melt on my monolids-like eyelids.
Graphic Liner is a pen-type eyeliner that automatically controls the flow of liner ink. It has a felt-tip application that’s firm and very user friendly. The applicator leave a thin line if you draw with the tip, and if you slant it sideways, you can also achieve greater control, in addition to a thicker line. The black ink is very black, and it dries down within seconds, which means you don’t need to keep your eyes in a half closed state in order to wait for the ink to dry.
My absolute favourite thing about the ink formula is that it stays put. It does not crease or transfer to anywhere else on the eyelid apart from the exact line where I’ve applied it. Many brands claim that they have a crease-proof and transfer-proof formula, but usually within an hour or two of application, my eyes look like an inky, greasy mess. This does not happen with the Graphic Liner; the line looks as clean and as dark as when I first drew it. As a person with a monolid, this product has quickly become a must-have in my makeup bag.
You can purchase Graphic Liner and Ink Liner at Sephora (in store and online) and Make Up For Ever boutiques starting January, 2015.
