I love a good liquid eyeliner. I have pretty much abandoned my pencil liners in favor of liquid. Pencils don’t give me the same crisp looking lines I desire. Even if it looks intimidating, once you get the hang of it, liquid liner is easier to use.
Covergirl has just introduced me to their new eyeliner: Intensify Me! Liquid Liner. The tip of the eyeliner is paddle shaped, which allows you to create thick lines, or turn the eyeliner to the slim side to create thin lines.
The liquid liner is easy to use and I was able to create the promised thick and thin lines. It glides over your eyelid very smoothly, but the flat paddle end does take a try or two to get used to. The first time I tried it, it skipped over my eyelids. The 2nd time, I held it flatter against my eyes and was able to create a fluid line. I would never use this paddle side to create the wing, though. The slim side is better for wing action. This formula is buildable, so if you use the slim side, you can start thin and build up to a thicker line.
It dried down fairly quickly, within a minute or so, which gave me enough time to clean up mistakes. It does bleed ever so slightly, and will vary depending on how lined your eyelid is.
Right now it only comes in shade Intense Black, which is a very solid black.
Everything about this eyeliner is great, except it is not at all waterproof, and for someone like me who has allergies and watery eyes, that is extremely important.
