The VIP (Very Impressive Product) Pick of the Week #6
Posted 03/04/11 at 05:09PM by Audrey Fine
The Price: $6
The Promise: "Compact, easy-to-hold, high-precision liquid eyeliner pen has a smudge-proof, fast-drying formula that glides on to create fine or bold lines without fuss, for looks that last all day."
The Real Deal: OK, I'll admit it (as I have before), I'm a spaz. And, in addition to not being able to shoot pool or wield knitting needles very well, I'm hard-pressed to apply makeup in a grown-up manner. Because of that, well, challenge, I'm always on the lookout for "spaz proof" products. When it comes to liquid liner, THIS IS IT. Not only does the "pen" actually draw nice, fluid lines, its tip dispenses just the right amount of liner so even unsure-handed people like me don't end up with big, gloppy, streaks. (Hooray!)
The Upshot: The fact that this liner, while easy to apply is also fast-drying (by the time I apply my first coat of mascara, the liner isn't even tacky to the touch) and difficult to smudge helps to seal the deal for me. What more can a (spazzy) girl ask for than an easy-to-apply, fast-to-dry, smudge-resistant, inexpensive eyeliner that comes in the perfect smoky gray shade, ask for? (OK, besides world peace and George Clooney.)
What's your favorite eyeliner? Think it could take on my CG LineExact? (See last week's VIP pick.)
Oh, hey, and what about your favorite line filling products? I recently took three line filling skin care products out for a spin and the results may surprise you.
