Remember last Summer when Benefit Cosmetics released their innovative and brand new They’re Real! Push-Up Liner? If not you can read all the details here and see just how blonde my hair was too! It was a fresh product to the market and a unique concept that really made the tricky task of perfecting that perfect eyeliner flick a little bit easier with the lash-hugging gel liner applicator and twist-up pen design! With a few twists the slanted rubber nib dispenses the matte, gel, waterproof formula which glides onto your skin without any tugging or pulling. The novel concept wasn’t everyone’s cup of tea – I don’t think you get the same intensity as you would with a liquid liner or the precision you would with a gel pot and brush but I quite liked the simplicity of it all and the fact it didn’t budge or smudge one bit was a real winner!
Following the obvious success of this launch last year, Benefit Cosmetics has now jumped on the crazy, coloured liner tread going on at the minute and have added four fabulous new shades to the range to rank alongside the popular black option. They’re Real! Push-Up Liners* (£18.50) are now available in blue, green, purple and brown – a colour to suit everyone and really make your eyes pop! There is brown and green for a more subtle variation to black and purple and blue for the adventurous gals out there! That said, all these colours are fairly muted and tame in comparision to some of the cobalt blue and vibrant green liners that are doing the rounds at the moment. These four, jewel-toned options would definitely suit someone looking to move away from the traditional jet-black liner but aren’t quite ready to crack out the bright liners just yet. Little steps first!
Beyond Blue is definitely more of a navy blue than an electric blue so is a safer option if you fancy giving the blue-hue eye trend a go. Beyond Purple is a beautiful, rich aubergine shade and warms up your everyday eye look perfectly. Beyond Brown is probably my favourite when after a subtle alternative to my everyday black liner. Finally Beyond Green is a true mossy-green which would look amazing against hazel or brown eyes. Which colour would you pick up?
