There are some things in my makeup collection that I fell in love with immediately and have been loving ever since, some that I hated as soon as they touched my face, and then there are others that I tried on, shrugged, and put aside rarely picking them up again afterwards.
These are the products that I have casted off because they weren't particularly special to me or they just didn't meet my expectations. They are by no means bad products, and I hate to have things going to waste in my collection, so I decided to go through them, try them out again, and see whether I really hate the product and should give it away or if I could start using it more regularly.
One of the products on the list is the Eyeko Graffiti Eyeliner Pen in navy.
Anything that is readily available only in the UK is highly covetable to me, hence why I jumped on this when I saw it online at Urban Outfitters. However, the first few times I used it, I found that it was hard to get a pigmented line on my eyes and it took me forever to put on, even though it swatched beautifully on my hand.
When I tried it again today, it also came out amazingly when I swatched it, but I still found that it was a little hard to put on - maybe I just suck at felt tip liners? Nevertheless, this dries to a completely ink-like, no-smudge state and the color is such a pretty navy blue.
I would much rather use a gel eyeliner or a pencil, as I can wack those on a lot faster. With this I have to work with it for a while to get a good line, and I almost never get it straight. It is also not pigmented enough for me to do just a thin line of it. I will use it until it runs dry, but I won't be repurchasing.
I have a lot of products that fall in this "B-list" category, so I hope I can go through them all and maybe rediscover something that I really like.
Do you have this eyeliner? What do you think about it?
