I haven't bought a black eyeliner in years. Not for myself anyway. I never used it in my teen years and I hadn't used it at all until now. If I needed it I'd hop to my mum's room and steal hers for a bit. Recently I've been loving smokey eyes for daytime and nighttime, and I needed a black eyeliner to complete the look. When taking a browse in Boots to find one that I liked I wondered over to Soap & Glory to check out their lip balms - Which I also picked up! Naughty Hannah. Oh, and a liquid eyeliner (Which originally was the prime reason to go into town anyway!). I picked this up at it's great price tag at £5, not really sure what to expect.
As soon as I got home I went to work on a smokey eyed look and sweeped this on my waterline. I don't know about you, but I have the worlds most watery eyes and I wasn't expecting this to last, even though this is waterproof. First I was pleasantly surprised by how it melted onto my lash line. I then noticed how black it looked too, and the shade is appropriately named Superblack. By that point I was already impressed, and for £5 I was pretty happy. 4 hours on after a show I looked in the mirror and was greeted with no black marks under my eyes. Really? I checked again to make sure. My eyeliner had stayed put. Thinking it was a fluke, I wore smokey eyes throughout the week and noticed that it still wouldn't budge! An absolute miracle. When playing around with the eyeliner I also noticed how easy it is to blend to create and effortless smokey eye. It's true to say that I have no idea why I never picked this up sooner. An added bonus is the sharper on the end, I'm always asking my flat mates for one as I'm constantly loosing mine, so this is just ideal.
Thank you Soap & Glory! I cannot wait to use this more often! Grab yours for £5 from Boots now. Choose from Superblack or Brown.
