Everyone loves a freebie!
My most recent freebie came from the August issue of Marie Claire.
An eyeko liquid eyeliner known as SKINNY MINI worth £10! Whoop! :)
So I've been testing it out for a few days and here's what I thought.
So the liner itself comes in a little blue box telling you everything you need to know about its liquidy-linery-goodness.
Long Lasting, Glossy Colour, Easy Application, Precision Point Perfection...
"SKINNY MINI LIQUID EYELINER. Our easy-to-control pen delivers precision point perfection for thick or thing lines and long-lasting colour. With a paraben-free formula with key ingredients Sodium Hyaluronate to ensure colour glides and stays on. Smudge-proof, fade-proof, and above all foolproof."
So I get pretty excited about eyeliners for some daft reason and as you can imagine I was excited about trying this, especially as it was free! And I was not disappointed! It glides on real easy, the colour is super black which makes a nice change and has quite a glossy finish.
The nib is nice a skinny which makes application easy and diverse. You can mix it up between a natural slim line just to create a fuller lash line or a thicker kitty cat flick. It has a mild scent but nothing you really pick up on. The colour stays black all day long and on myself its fairly smudge-proof, not 100%. I endure oily skin so its tough for anything to stay put when rubbed on my skin. I found if I rubbed my eye only the end flicks would smudge out the rest seemed fairly stable. But I'm sure if you didn't have oily skin and maybe wore a primer underneath it should stay put.
Yup, for the swatch I drew an eye, it is for eyeko after all!
One of the good things about this liner is that if you need to top up your line because you missed a tiny bit, when going over your line it doesn't take any of the other liner with it, which I have found with the other felt liners I've used in the past.
So all in all I'm impressed with this bad boy!
