I won’t lie to you, I just about skipped with delight when Charlotte Tilburry’s makeup range arrived at their new stand in Brown Thomas. I mashed myself in between all the bodies trying to get a nosy at the beauteous products I had heard so much about. I got the chance to join some other beauty bloggers and really explore the brand. I am in love!
I’ve decided to do my own little awards ceremony on makeupandbeauty.ie for a bit of fun. I’ll keep them coming…
Here are my favourite eye liners of 2009:
Loreal Contour Kajal: I pick up this liner at some stage every day. I use it on my water line and it stays put. Mine is black, it’s pigmented, easy to blend and doesn’t budge when it sets.
MAC Fluidline – This is probably my favourite liner of 2009. The main reason for this is that it’s the quickest and easiest to apply. I use a slanted liner brush to apply. It’s cost €7 more than the Avon equivalent but it’s 10 times better. I’ll be picking up this goodie in other colours.
L’Oreal Super Liner : This is a great liquid liner. The nib is easy to work with and it gives a high shine line to the eye. This one is great for winged liner.
Urban Decay 24/7 Liners – My favourite is Zero (black). These are the most pigmented and smoothest liners I have tried this year. I’m a massive fan! As liners go these are foolproof. The only downside is that they need to be sharpened with every use.
Disappointments of 2009: Eye Liners
Bobbi Brown Gel Liner – Loved it while it was fresh but after a few months of everyday use it congealed. I only got a third of the way down the pot before it was unusable. So as I much as I loved it I won’t be re-buying.
Make up For Ever Retractable Liner – After a week the liner fell into the container.
Avon Liner Pot: I found these hard to work with and not as pigmented as Mac Fluidline. I used them twice and never touched them again.
