You know what, it's been ages since I last reviewed eyeliner here! It's just that I'm so happy with my MAC Fluidline and Urban Decay 24/7 Pencil that I've stopped bothering to look for something new. However, when Revlon sent me their ColorStay Liquid Liner in Blackest Black (P550), I just had to try it. I've read really good reviews about it so I put it to the test.
What I love about it
- Solid black line in one go. No need to layer! It creates lovely winged eyes that even Dita Von Teese would envy.
- Characteristic of Revlon's popular ColorStay line, this eyeliner stays on all day with no smudging. It's very reliable in our humid, unpredictable weather.
- Easy to take off since it dissolves with oil or cream-based makeup removers.
- Dries quickly.
- Quite affordable at P550.
What I don't like
- This is really more of a personal bias. I find liquid eyeliners hard to work with. They afford so little control compared to, say, a cream eyeliner which I can apply with my brush of choice. The tip of the applicator is too hard for me to be comfortable with it.
If you're looking for a high-quality drugstore liquid eyeliner, the Revlon ColorStay Liquid Liner is an impressive option. It's for girls who like sharply-defined eyes with a winged edge. However, if you don't like your eyeliners looking too obvious, a pencil eyeliner is a better choice. In fact, Revlon also has a ColorStay liner that comes in an automatic pen (my personal preference). I will review that one soon.
It's good! I complain about how hard it is to use this, but nothing can beat liquid eyeliners in doing cat's eye makeup. I like using this when I am going for that particular look. Otherwise, it's my UD eyeliner for me! Or the Revlon ColorStay automatic liner version.
