Hello everyone! Saturday is a blessed day, isn’t it? Yay for Saturdays! I’m finally feeling more lively today, after so many days of being unwell, which is a relief. Spent a gorgeous Saturday with family, in front of the fireplace. It’s sunny in Athens, yes. But we fancied a bit of fire, so no comments, haha! I was showing my mum the Urban Decay Razor Sharp Water-Resistant Longwear Liquid Eyeliner this afternoon, suggesting she gives this product a go herself. You know, she has oily lids which absorb colour (!), so not all products work on her. But this one did. And lasted all day. It’s that awesome! Let me share my thoughts with you, although as you might have figured, it’s a win!
I have three shades that I’ve extensively tested: Demolition (a rich, glossy brown), Snakebite (a shimmery bronze) and Street (a deep teal). I’ve included two of these in this post, namely Snakebite and Street, but all three perform equally well. Actually, the fact that I packed two out of three to come with me to Athens should say something!
There tons more shades of the Urban Decay Razor Sharp Water-Resistant Longwear Liquid Eyeliner and I’m seriously eyeing a couple more. Have a look at Temptalia’s site for all colours available too. You can find mostly glossy shades and a few (like Snakebite) have a bit of glitter too. All shades are vibrant and they make a statement when worn. The consistency of this liner is liquid, of course, but relatively thick for a liner. All three I have apply beautifully, they aren’t patchy and you can build them up for maximum impact, although they are pretty intense with one coat! You have to be relatively speedy though. They set in 15-20 seconds and once set, they won’t go any-where! Literally.
Longevity is super-important to me. My eyelids are not easy: they get oily easily and lots of products crease or transfer on me, despite their long wear properties. The Urban Decay Razor Sharp Water-Resistant Longwear Liquid Eyeliner doesn’t move though. Even after twelve hours. Aaaand, even without a primer underneath. The rest of my make up might be off, these are still there and looking great. So, I love them for this; it means I can go about my day with no fear of looking like a panda under my eyes, or need to check my make-up, if I’m super busy. Thumbs up UD!!
Saying this, I can’t smudge these liners. Their consistency doesn’t allow me to do so and, to be honest, I don’t think they were made for that. They work beautifully as liners which can give you a solid, pigmented, thin line above your lashes. The tip of the wand is very thin, so you can control how you draw that line too. It allows you to control the thickness of your line and guarantees easy, fuss free application. Oh, and you can do a super cute, thin flick in a sec. I like a thin flick for the day- don’t you think it’s elegant?
It would be useful to mention that, as with all longer products, you will need to be careful with their removal at the end of the day. Water won’t remove this liner easily. You definitely need some cotton soaked in oil makeup remover, soft movements and patience. Because of the consistency, this liner comes off in bits which feel soft and elastic (like soft plastic!) and sometimes end up on my lashes. This is uncomfortable and wish it wouldn’t happen. Still, I can pick them up and get rid of them easily. You need to make sure you remove these liners carefully, though, for sure, especially if you’re experimenting, like I did, and use them in the lower lash line! Here’s a look with Snakebite (Upper lashline) and Steel (lower lashline):
And that’s the full face:
I loved this look. These two liners combined elegantly and playfully. Combined with a high impact mascara (Oh, Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir, wilt thou marry me? I love thee!!!) and a bit of Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon in Diamonds, I had an eye look that lasted all day in five minutes. Loooove time-saving, easy to use products. On my lips, Bobbi Brown Neutral Rose and on my cheeks, the Nars NARSissist Unfiltered I Palette.
Have you tried these liners? Do you have any other long-lasting products like this one that I should lay my paws on? Pray, tell!
Have a great weekend lovely people and speak soon!
