I am a liquid liner fanatic. I wear it almost every day. I'm sure I look fine without it, but for some reason I feel compelled to add it to my daily routine. Since I have been wearing it for DECADES, I consider myself a bit of an advanced user. I can line with the best of them. I am only limited by my crepe-y eyelids which I have nothing but genetics to blame for that.
Anyway. When I set out on my $20 Face Challenge for the recent Makeup Wars battle I had resigned myself to having to use a pencil liner because I thought getting a liquid liner would be rather expensive on my limited budget. When I walked into Sally Beauty Supply, imagine my surprise when I saw they had a mini liquid liner for only $0.99! I guess the lighting in the store was kinda crap because I picked up the liner in Brownish Black rather than Jet Black. Oh well. I can use a brown liquid liner with my mostly warm golden taupe shadows, I thought to myself.
But then I opened the liner (when I got home) and looked at the brush.
Look at this brush!
LOOK AT IT!
How is anyone supposed to EFFECTIVE line their eyes with that abomination they call a brush?
Aside from the obvious deformation at the end, the brush itself is too long and it's floppy.
A floppy eyeliner brush will just not please a woman. No woman likes a floppy eyeliner brush. We can't do anything with a floppy eyeliner brush. We like a firm, stiff brush for lining our eyes. Stiff eyeliner brushes are the best! They really satisfy! When a brush that was once stiff goes floppy, we have no use for it. That's just a fact of life.
Do you NEED this? Hell No! Save your 99 pennies. Even the swatches suck when using this brush. Oh and yes, I used my trusty MAC 210 Precise Eyeliner Brush for application to my eye and the liner still looked like a streaky mess. I wish I had purchased a nice big pencil liner. That would have been the climax of my $20 face look!
