Ever since I switched from pencil to liquid I never was able to go back to lining my upper lash line with pencil! Liquid liners are easy and quick, there is no tugging or pulling either which is great because all the tugging gives you premature wrinkles D:
PUPA Milano, Rapid Liner
This one is more like a felt liner as the tip is well, a felt tip.
Still liquid in a way since it isn't a pencil..
Lining my eyes:
As you can see,
This one isn't super dark. I tend to like black BLACK liners but I quite like this liner because it can line my eyes precisely. To apply it is easy and there is no waiting time for it to dry.
I use this one 98% of the time actually.
Elizabeth Arden, Liquid Eyeliner
The tip is also felt on this one however, this liner is more liquidy. So I can define this as a legit liquid eyeliner haha
Lining my eyes:
So this one is a lot darker and you can actually see the "shine" in it.
This one takes time to dry after application, not long though. But I can't open my eyes wide right away after putting this on. This eyeliner is also easy to use/apply but because it is more liquidy than the PUPA felt liner, you can create streaks in the liner - which makes the lining job not as smooth looking. Oh, and this liner does not smudge :)
Comparing the Two:
(top: Elizabeth Arden, bottom: PUPA)
After running them under water:
A bit of rubbing:
A lot of rubbing:
So from the photos above,
The top liner rubs off whereas the PUPA liner just washes away.
Neither claim to be waterproof (I actually HIGHLY dislike waterproof makeup) so this is just a demonstration to show their lasting power.
Both are labelled as black eyeliners but the PUPA one seems to show up as more of a faded black/brown.
At first I liked the Elizabeth Arden one more. But I found after using the PUPA one more, I like it better since it is a tad bit quicker to use.
Well, these two liners are ones I have used for the past few months :)
I bought these because I ran out of my previous one and was in desperate need haha
In the end, I really liked them!
I wanted to purchase the dolly wink liquid liner but because I was in a rush, I got these two. Each one was about $20 CAD here and have lasted me for quite a long time now (approx. half a year now?) and still have plenty of "ink" in them.
So yeap! Those are my eyeliners that I have been using daily :)
Have a gooooood day everyone ^^
