Milani: INFINITE Liquid Eye Liner
This is the best liquid liner I've tried to date. After my Avon liner started to get a little funky, I was searching for another liquid liner with a brush. Many brands are moving towards the felt tip pen applicator, which I find to be a little rough on my eyelids. I tried the LineExact Liquid Liner a while back and hated it. What a waste of money. The Milani INFINITE Liquid Eye Liner, however is a different story. I purchased a plain old dark brown for about $7.00.
The brush isn't exactly pointy, but you can still get a nice thin line. I was a little surprised that the product right out of the package seemed a little sticky like it was old. I considered returning it before even trying, but decided to give it a shot first. I love it. Not only is it very pigmented, it stays put. I also tried the matching pencil liner, but I found that when I used it to tightline it smudged onto my contact lens, which made it very difficult to see. If I ever get Lasik, I will definitely be repurchasing the pencil because I really enjoyed the dark pigmentation and the smooth glide during application. Anyway, back to the liquid line. They weren't kidding when they said it is waterproof. Usually I use a baby wipe to take off my makeup. They're easy, inexpensive, come in a variety of softness, come in an easy to access plastic container, and get the job done. This liner wouldn't budge when I tried get it off. I had to get the full blown makeup remover out to get it off.
After wearing it a few times now, it just keeps getting better. I don't worry about it smudging at all if I'm having allergy eyes. Today I ventured into the winged out look. I tend to touch the corners of my eyes a lot because they're always itchy or I get something under my contact. Contacts are the bane of my existence. They give me so many problems. I've never done the winged look because of this. I don't want a wing on one eye and have it worn off on the other. I had zero problems today. I have a feeling I won't be looking for alternatives after find this one!
