Being an avid winged eyeliner wearer (pretty much on a daily basis), I have mentioned a handful of my favourite eyeliners in various makeup posts here on BT. I go through stages of loving kohl, gel and liquid formulas, but always tend to stick with my trusty picks. Barry M Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner Pencil has without a doubt been a staple in my makeup bag for the past couple of years, but I only tend to wear it in my lower lash line. It is a super soft, long lasting, extreme back pencil sold at a budget price – highly recommend! Another favourite of mine is the L’Oréal Superliner, but after it being out of stock on several Boots visits, I had given up and was on the hunt for something similar. My want list included something super black, waterproof and with a very fine brush, and first impressions of the Max Factor Colour X-pert Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner fit the bill!
This eyeliner has a very precise dip-in tip which can be used to create bold, dramatic eye looks. Its waterproof formula gives an intense finish and fabulous staying power against humidity, rain and water. Encased within slim black and gold packaging, it is also available in 4 vibrant shades to compliment a variety of makeup looks.
For those that struggle with winged eyeliner, begin with a kohl pencil to draw an outline on your eyelid as a guide to follow. Tilt your head back at a slight angle, and keep your hand steady using a flat surface (jaw bone is most convenient!). Gently lift your eyelid taut and apply the liquid liner in a continuous line from your inner to outer corner, following your kohl guideline. For a striking look, finish with a flick from the outer corner of your eye. Trust me when I say practice really doesn’t make perfect.
I have been using this eyeliner religiously for the past couple of months and there is no sign of it drying out (a common problem with some liquid formulas). Priced at £6.99 it is super affordable, easy to use and has become a firm favourite in my makeup routine – a definite repurchase.
