sorry, hahaha, i guess the gold goes on!
i got a bit over the gold eyeshadow look but still wanted some gold in my eye make up, so i chose a gold liner to achieve that. i bought this Urban Decay Liquid Liner in Honey on allcosmeticswholesale.com, it costs 8.99$ and contains 7.5ml (which i think is an awesome amount that you get!).
i heard only good things about its quality, but just like the many others i truly find this cute inkwell-like packaging pointless. first, you can't ever use up the product when it's in a shape like that. and second, the opening makes it impossible to effectively wipe off excess product at the stopper so you will either end up with too much on your applicator or with product all over the opening notch when you try to wipe it off (or take out the brush in an angle).
other than that, Honey is a beautiful rich golden bronze with lots of shimmer and a metallic finish. it's not too light so it still somewhat frames my eyes but the effect is special enough to be a real eyecatcher.
the brush is also easily to handle since it has a good flexibility and a fine tip. if i get too much product on the applicator, i'd carefully try to wipe it off or i would start on the middle of my lid to not get the thick line on the inner corner. the texture of the liner is like a thin cream, making it easy to control. it applies evenly and opaque with the first stroke.
staying power is very good as expected. no smudging, no transfer, no crumbling over the whole time wearing and still easy to remove.
i love to wear this intense golden bronze with cool toned make up looks to create some contrast. the metallic shimmery gold peeks out beautifully between your lashes.
albeit the packaging is really unwieldy, i am impressed with the formula and already have ordered two other shades of these liners.
what about you? have you tried these liners? how do you like them?
