Just in time for Summer and those humid, sweaty days and long nights on the dance floor, Bobbi Brown have released their new Long-Wear Waterproof Liners in eight beautiful shades. There is nothing worse than your kohl liner smudging and transferring throughout the day and sometimes my liner will have completely disappeared from my waterline by the end of the night!
These new twist-up liners are highly-pigmented and give your eye makeup a deep, opaque finish. The pencil is waxy and creamy so is smooth and comfortable to apply and doesn’t drag or pull the skin at all. It is soft enough to smudge in for a smokey eye effect but once it has dried, it does not budge. The formula has been created with minimal oils so it stays put and can withstand heat, humidity, sweat and tears. Great news as we approach Summer and the joys of hay fever are just around the corner! I love the fact the pencil is so slim so can be applied really precisely in one simple swipe. Just don’t twist the pencil up too much otherwise they can snap when you apply pressure. It lines the eyelid really well but I wouldn’t say it is the best choice if you want to create a cat eye flick as the tip of the liner isn’t as precise and sharp as you would get from a sharpened kohl pencil.
I love the range of colours in this long-wear liner collection – you of course have you blackest of black and a couple of rich browns, but there is also some sultry blues, a pretty plum-purple and a gorgeous ivy shade. Above I have shown Hazy Brown and Evening Sky – both are lovely as an alternative to a black liner whilst still giving definition and a subtle smokiness. These are out now!
