Fashion 21 Liquid Eyeliner Review
A few months ago I did a review on three liquid eyeliners that I’ve tried before (Etude House, In2It and Revlon’s Colorstay). In that entry I mentioned that I planned on getting the Etude House liquid liner because it was the one with the longest staying power out of the three. However, when I went to the mall that weekend, it was out of stock. I was too impatient to wait for the new stocks to arrive, so I decided to just get the In2It liner instead since I’ve tried it before and it worked fine for me. But, when I got to Watson’s, I couldn’t find the In2It booth so I ended up getting this instead:
Fashion 21 Liquid Eyeliner (Waterproof)
The reason I decided to go with this one was because I remembered that Brinks has used this liquid liner before and she told me that she’s pretty happy with it. It was only P120, so I decided to give it a try.
I’ve been using it for about two months now and it’s great. It lasts the whole day without smudging, which is exactly what I want. I did the same test I did for the other three liquid liners I reviewed earlier, and here are the results:
I applied three lines on the back of my hand.
Then I tried to rub the product off using my fingers
As you can see, there was minimal smudging. And I was rubbing HARD!
Then I tried rubbing the product off underwater:
It faded a little but didn’t rub off completely.
Pretty good right? It didn’t really smudge, even after trying to rub it off underwater. I did this test this in the morning and by the end of the day I still had the three lines on the back of my hand right. And I washed my hands a lot that day.
Some people are scared that the product stays on too long and that it’ll be too difficult to remove at the end of the day, but I found that regular eye makeup remover (I used Etude House Lip And Eye Remover) removes it easily.
The only thing I don’t like about it is the applicator/wand/brush. It’s way too long! It might not bother some people, but if you have extremely shaky hands like me, it makes applying the eyeliner a bit difficult.
Fashion 21′s wand/brush is almost twice as long as the Revlon Colorstay wand/brush.
Also, I found that the formula is a bit watery and takes a little longer to dry than other liquid liners I’ve tried, so I tend to get some of it on my eyelids if I open my eyes too wide after applying it.
But overall, I think the product’s great. It does the job and for only P120. How can you say no to that, right? I’m definitely glad I tried it.
