I just love coloured liners! I really can’t have too many, I put myself on a ban a while ago which im pretty sure needs to be broken. My favourite black and nude liners are Rimmel Scandal eyes, i embarrassingly don’t own any of the coloured ones. It literally feels like a crime so that’s what I’ll be getting on payday! I love how versatile coloured liners are, you can go all out colourful and crazy or if your more of a neutral person use your Browns and creams and just have a pop of colour in the waterline, or just underneath with a nude liner in the waterline to really open up the eyes.
Here are a few of my favourites.
MakeupRevolution Hypocrisy eyeliners/lip liners £1 each available at http://www.makeuprevolution.com or in some superdrugs.
These are multi purpose super affordable liners, some of these colours are crazy. I was so impressed with these, smooth and cramy they last really well on the waterline as well as just underneath. Which is hard to find in a coloured liner. You can have some real fun with these colours, my favourites by far are the blue and lilac. I wasn’t a huge fan of the red, it really stained my eyes and made me look ill. Although it would love fabulous just above some winged out black liquid liner, which in hinds sight I should of tried lol. Here are some looks I have done with them.
Next up we have Gosh velvet touch liners £4.99 each available at superdrug in store or online.
The name Velvet Touch is spot on, these liners are super creamy and glide on like a cooling gel. They are available in a whopping 19 colours so there is a vast colour choice I can’t wait to explore. I own ‘renaissance gold’ and ‘purple stain’, both really metallic and pigmented. Even on the eyes you can see the true colour and the iridescence in the purple. I tend to use the gold at least twice a week it’s such a great way to make a simple look more exciting. You get a good few hours lasting in the waterline, they last beautifully just under it, so even when it’s moved off the waterline it’s still surrounding it looking gorgeous.
As you can see it looks lovely with pinks, Browns golds and bronzes, just adds a little something that was missing before.
This purple gets me everything, I love using it with turquoises, blues and greens to add some depth and how metallic it is just gets people’s attention!
Elizabeth Arden. £14.45. This colour is called Sapphire 04.
Ok this is a bit of a weird one, this is not the best liner I have ever owned, which for the price I kinda would of wanted it to be…. But just look at the colour! I was hypnotised and just had to have it in my life and I’m pleased I did. I was on the lookout for a dark blue metallic liner to go with my maybelline colour tattoo in everlasting navy. I love dark navy eyes all smoked out it just look so pretty. This was a really good match! It also looks nice with bronzes and golds. I have found with these stick formulas the liner tends to be a bit more waxy than creamy, I think this is so it holds it shape in the tube. Which is great for lining under the waterline but you do have to go over several times on the waterline to really build up that colour. It also needed a touch up through the day but it was worth it for the shade of blue it’s exactly what I wanted.
I hope this has helped you in some way and given you a few ideas of what to pick up if you feel like experimenting with colour. If you have any coloured liners you think I would like or would like me to review please comment below! xxx
