Today I wanted to share with you a great find. I had to rush into Walgreens a few days ago to pick up some last minute things and some much needed Ibuprofen. The makeup section was to the left when you walk into the store and everything I needed was to the right. What did I do? Yep, I quickly steered myself to the left. “It’ll just be a few minutes.” A few things caught my eye. One, they are now selling Soap & Glory products. I have not tried any myself but I have heard good things about the brand.
The second, and the reason for this post, was this Revlon Skinny liquid liner. What really drew me to this particular product was the fact that it was navy blue. I’ve always liked the idea of using navy blue as an eyeliner. It’s dark enough to really frame my eyes, but it is also a subtle pop of color. Win! I tried this the very next day.
The applicator is very nice, and thin, just as the name suggests. It is also a bit long so you can really lay down flat for application. My only complaint is that I think it picks up more product that I can handle for initial application. To get around this I will simply clean some off the excess against the edge of the bottle. That way I can control how much product I use. I guess it may be a problem for us that are somewhat new to the liquid liner world. The color, Navy Shock is dark and very pigmented. It has a bit of a shinny finish, so that may not be everyone’s cup of tea.
I like to apply it on it’s own, or over the top of black to give it more depth. When I do the latter it has the neat effect of adding something extra. Like it makes you do a double take – at first glance it might not look like much, but then you start to see the blue peak through. So, there you have it. If you love basics but are looking for a little pop of color with good staying power, the Revlon Colorstay Skinny Liner might be just the thing you are looking for.
I’m curious. Have you guys tried Soap & Glory products? What are you favorite eyeliner colors?
