I was on the hunt for a new liquid eyeliner after using up my current one. I was in Boots and walked past the Maybelline counter…picking up a trusty Lash Sensational, the Master Ink eyeliners caught my eye.
I was looking for a good, pigmented eyeliner and I was pleased to see they had a Matte eyeliner AND a black gold glitter one which was perfect for the make up I planned to do at my work Xmas do!
These sounded and looked so great, I was hopeful that they would live up to my expectations. The matte liner is wet and fabulously pigmented. With a matte liner, I was worried that it would end up looking a bit ashy but it doesn’t in the slightest. It’s not the most hard wearing eyeliner but if you leave it alone while it dries it lasts well enough.
The nib is very thin and easy to manipulate – doing a cat flick isn’t the easiest thing but practice will make perfect! That’s what I’m telling myself anyway…
The glitter eyeliner is lovely because it’s not just gold glitter – it’s black gold so you can use this on it’s own! I love the way this looks – the glitter is a slightly yellowy gold but it’s really beautiful. It adds just the right amount of sparkle and shimmer across the lid!
Here is a swatch of both of them side by side:
The black gold one is my favourite for special occasions but the matte version is still perfect for everyday!
I’m so chuffed with these and I think I’ll be repurchasing the matte one 🙂
I hope you’re all having a great Christmas so far!
Keep your eyes peeled for the third week of my Body Shop Advent Calendar!
