I have exciting news: I just completed my makeup artist certification! I don’t plan on actually trying to make a career as a makeup artist, but I am very invested in this beauty blog and I wanted to learn as much as I could about makeup in order to provide the best information.
However, I don’t think all makeup artists agree on everything. For instance, I was taught that pencil eyeliners are superior to liquid eyeliners when doing a cat eye, but that just hasn’t been my experience. Sure, liquid eyeliners might be harder to use and achieve symmetry, but I think their finish and lasting power are unparalleled. A cat eye done in liquid eyeliner really stands out.
That being said, I have a new liquid eyeliner to review today: the Maybelline Curvitude Liquid Eyeliner. This product can be purchased from Target or similar retailers for about $7.
For the price, I definitely think that this is a nice eyeliner. The container is curved to adhere to the way that people hold pencils and eyeliners. I found that the way the container is made did actually help with the application. It was pretty easy to apply evenly as well, which is a huge plus and especially impressive for a drugstore eyeliner! The brush was also very thin at the tip which allowed for a lot of control and precision.
Now, the product wasn’t without its cons as well. I didn’t actually like the formula of the product. It never really dried completely, so it was just too easy to smudge. If you do end up using this product, you’ll need to keep that in mind and try very hard not to touch it once it is finished. Still, this was a nice drugstore option for a liquid eyeliner.
For those who are wondering, the liquid eyeliner I recommend and use the most is the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner which retails for $22 at Sephora.
What liquid eyeliners do you love? Have you found one that you swear by? Be sure to let me know in the comments section!
