Years ago, a friend of mine said, "Are you one of those Asians that buy Sony everything?" I laughed mainly because I didn't even realise how many Sony products I had at the time--camera, TV, laptop, etc. Fast forward a few years and I never thought I'd end up getting so many Revlon products, especially the Colorstay eyeliners. It was unintentional, and I picked all of these up before I had even started blogging.
But that's not the point! Revlon seems to produce the best drugstore quality products, and today I'll be reviewing their automatic liner (Colorstay Eyeliner) (which I also talked about here), their liquid eyeliner (Liquid Eye Pen), and their gel liner (Creme Gel Eyeliner).
The liquid liner comes in a stiff felt tip pen, which makes it easy to control the thickness of the line. Very black ink leaves a crisp finish that doesn't bleed.
The cream/gel liner is a very creamy grey-black, comes with a brush and is easy to apply. There is a very subtle amount of sparkle in this product, which I had never noticed in my 3 years of owning this product until I did a hand swatch ._.
Also, I kid you not, their cream/gel liner smells like COCONUTS (or Hawaiian Tropic sunscreen) (It may just be me though, since I've yet to find anyone who thinks it also smells like coconuts...YES, I like smelling products don't laugh ;-;)
________________________________________________________Nothing like having liners endure some hard work, so here is a smudge test, because curse those eyelashes that fall into your eye from time to time, resulting in a smudging hassle ಠ_ಠ
Oh boy. ._.''
And again, the automatic liner clings like iron.
"BABY WON'T YOU TELL ME WHY, THERE IS SADNESS IN YOUR EYES" Sorry, been serenading my dog with that song all day--but you get the drift--it's a tear/water test.
Eyeliner gods HAVE MERCY ON THIS LIQUID LINER WHY??!
Ink literally ran off into the sink in a heartbeat.
The other two liners still held up pretty well with a small amount of water applied with rubbing/smudging motions though. There still is some additional smudging, but nothing significant and extremely noticeable.
EDIT: THIS IS WHY I'M NOT A SCIENTIST, I make conclusions without finishing/trying all possibilities, damnit Vanessa.
- The gel/cream liner is fabulous, and I personally like the brush + glass packaging, but if you're after the blackest of the black gel liner, skip this one.
- Also totally unrelated, but I found out Facebook has Pusheen the Cat conversation stickers and now I can't stop using them
Sorry not sorry.
Anyways, I hope you found this post interesting? Insightful?
