If it's not apparent already, I'm a bit of a makeup addict and I'm generally pretty good at picking out products I like but I certainly find some duds along the way. But just because I wasted a few pennies of this stuff, doesn't mean you have to! Here's the first of my Save Your Pennies/Spend Your Pennies series.
L'Oreal Carbon Black Telescopic Liquid Eyeliner
Blech, I've had a heck of a time finding a liquid eyeliner I like. I bought this one because I thought it was one recommenced by one of my favorite You Tubers. I was incorrect. At first, I thought I liked it anyway. The tip, which is sorta like a felt tip pen, made applying liner easier than eyeliners I've had in the past and right when it was applied, I loved it! Pigment was great and it made clean lines. Wah hoo!
Except not. About 4 or 5 hours into the day it would start to smudge around my eye and the pigment would fade significantly. A real bummer considering I even used an eyelid primer AND a setting spray. For awhile, I kept using it anyway because I didn't want to feel like I wasted my money by tossing it out and I just sorta figured that I always have issues with eye makeup staying put anyway. My dumb eyelids!
Then I snapped outta it! I realized I didn't need to settle for mediocre products because I'm sure there's an eyeliner out there that works for me (and in fact, I think I've found one). Life lessons ladies! So, in my opinion, save your pennies on the L'Oreal Carbon Black Telescopic Eyeliner.
