As I’ve said many time before, myself and eyeliner do not go together. We’ve never been best friends and at most, two estranged acquaintances that have never really seen eye to eye! (geddit?!)
I’ve a valid excuse though and it’s because of my lashes. Luckily I have been blessed with long and naturally curly lashes. Mascara shopping is a dream because anything will really work in that department, but eyeliner……my god it’s a battle I lose all too often. Having gone through my fair share of liquid pens, gels and pencils, to get any sort of a decent line I need to physically push my lashes down with one hand while trying to line with the other. A pain in the ass? Totally. A foolproof method? Definitely not!
Last week I decided to pick up the Rimmel Glam’Eyes Liquid Eyeliners. I used these many moons ago at school when they had bulky applicators but to be honest they were the one trusty makeup product that would just “do what it said on the tin”. Why I’ve never gone back to them before is beyond me! I picked up both shades “Black Glamour” and “Brown Velvet”. To say I am in love with these again is an understatement! Anyone with curly lashes will know what I mean! The new packaging makes it so easy to get right into the lash line and while I still can’t master a flick, these give just the right pop to my eyes and actually looks clean and polished!
I am using the brown shade for daytime wear and being of the fairer complexion, it’s perfect with a some lashings of mascara. These are also really easy to build this up at the outer corners and once on, won’t budge for the day with the added bonus of being easy peasy to remove at night.
My new found love for the classic liquid eyeliner has been born, and myself and my curly lashes are getting on like a house on fire! They are by no means a new product to squeal about, but at only €7.99 each, they are something to pop into the Boots basket next time your there!
Thanks for reading!
