One of my favorite looks for Spring and Summer is a bare-faced complexion with a pop of bright, bold liquid eyeliner. That’s it. It’s simple, chic and a super fun and easy way to play with color… so when the new Milani Ultrafine Liquid Eyeliners ($7.49 USD) hit my desk, I knew that I was going to have a lot of fun with them this season.
The range consists of five, gorgeously pigmented shades with a super precise applicator tip (sponge, not a brush) and an intense, long-wearing formula. Four out of the five colors have a sparkling, shimmery texture to them which adds an extra pop of brightness to the eye.
The shades include…
- Black Vinyl: Glossy, patent-leather black
- Black Gems: Sparkling black
- Pristmatic Purple: Sparkling violet
- Emerald Glisten: Sparkling teal
- Sparkling Turquoise: Sparkling aqua blue
These drugstore buys are a fantastic way to try out new looks without a lot of guilt- they are affordable enough to pick up a few shades, and if you’re not really into brightly colored eyeliner, the Black Vinyl shade is an excellent everyday staple. I don’t think that the applicator is my favorite.. I find it a little too short and stubby to be as precise as I want it to be. I can draw a thin line with it, but it takes a lot more work. I personally prefer a super-skinny brush tip, but these ones aren’t too bad considering you can turn it onto its side for a thicker line too.
The longevity is outstanding- you’ll definitely need to use an oil-based eye makeup remover to get these ones off at night (but it’s great because they’ll even last through an afternoon by the pool)! The texture is just a tad more liquidy than I would prefer, so it can be a little bit patchy. Going over a set line with a little more product will leave you with an opaque colour though, so it’s not a total upset.
