The metallics are really vivid, and striking with only one stroke (I tend to go for two, as I like to really saturate the colours, especially for pictures!) and they have a fantastic range of colours. Application is great – the brush is thin and easy to use, pretty much fool-proof. I tend to avoid liquid, favouring gel or felt tip pens, but this one really changed my mind – they got it right.
The consistency is fluid enough to apply easily, but not too runny. It also dries very quickly, so no smudges – the precise lines sit exactly where they should be – and stays there.
These liners are an easy way of giving your make-up that extra oomph – a little splash of colour that really makes a look different!
To see some of them in action, check some of my eye make-up look challenge posts where I used a some of the colours on a raspberry/orange (metallic orange/copper – tequila sunrise), festive gold (gold – gilt-y) and this light pink/green (metallic charcoal – black ice).
This post contains PR samples, however, this review is based on my own true experience with the products and reflects my honest opinion on them.
In my amazing goody bag from the Elemis event, I received an eye shadow duo from myface.cosmetics, which were providing the make over at the event. I had heard about them before but didn’t have any of their products. And I love to try new brands!
The duo is called Siren and is part of their Silk Screen collection. Packaging is very nice, clean, easy to use, and it comes with soft brush, which is also very nice for blending. The shades are a satin finish orange with a subtle shimmer and a beautiful raspberry with some golden sparkles.
Both eye shadows are very satin-y, they have good pigmentation and blended well. They are very bright shades and applied well. There was a little bit of fall out, but no more than other brands.
Since I attended the Elemis event, NBPR, who looks after myface.cosmetics, has kindly sent me some products to try, and I decided to use the first one from the lot I received with the very first product I ever got from the brand, as they went together beautifully!
So I used the slinky liquid liner in Tequila Sunrise, and orange-gold. Yeah, just one little bottle inspired the whole look I posted before!
The liner is very easy to apply, the brush is firm without being hard, very fine and precise. The consistency is good, not too runny, not too hard. The colour, with one stroke, is quite vivid, but I went for two, especially where it was over the orange eye shadow, to get more distinction. It dries quickly and I managed not to smudge, and it sticks well. The metallic effect is really noticeable, and the colour very solid. Thumbs super up.
I am soooo happy they sent me a few, and in gorgeous colours, so it looks like you will be seeing different looks going liner crazy, as I will be experimenting more – after all, this is what the challenge is all about.
