I sometimes put on dramatic, black-winged liner on my lids, and getting them to be clean and — most significantly — razor sharp takes each talent and a specific sort of pen.
Once I’d first found the Dior Diorshow On Stage Liquid Liner, I’d been experimenting with switching up the colour of my cat eyes (I’d been impressed by Rihanna carrying white flared-liner just a few months in the past). I used to be on a mission to seek out probably the most opaque coloured liner to recreate that look and one that will additionally be capable to deal with creating a pointy, winged look.
Within the bag of Better of Magnificence eyeliners I used to be testing, I noticed this shiny, luxe-looking pen. OK, so possibly I grabbed it initially as a result of it had the phrase Dior on it, however I additionally discovered it engaging as a result of the colour of the ink was made very clear by the enormous sticker that runs throughout the size of it.
This Dior On Stage Liner ended up successful for finest liquid liner coloration vary and that is for just a few causes. First, it is available in a whopping 14 ultra-rich shades. There are 11 liners with matte finishes: Matte Black, Matte White, Matte Purple, Matte Crimson, Matte Blue, Matte Pop Blue, Matte Yellow, Matte Pop Inexperienced, Matte Brown, Matte Pink, and Matte Rusty (a plumy, cabernet hue); and three with a satin end: Vinyl Black, Pearly Turquoise, and Pearly Bronze.
The primary shade I went for was Pearly Turquoise, which is a pastel blue tone that I used to be not sure would present up on my caramel-toned pores and skin. The Pearly Turquoise shade was particularly enjoyable and brilliant to put on, and is definitely attention-grabbing — our editor in chief, Michelle Lee, paused our dialog to go with the wings I drew on my lids.
Mattes Purple, Blue, and White are equally as opaque, and a few of my different favourite shades to put on. Matte Rusty is likely one of the first purple liners that I’ve tried that didn’t simply soften and disappear into my warm-toned pores and skin. Matte Yellow required just a few extra layers than the others however was simply as vibrant as soon as it dried and set.
The second characteristic that factored into On-Stage Liner incomes an Attract Better of Magnificence award is its extremely-pointy-yet-flexible felt-tip applicator. The pen slides simply alongside my high lashes. It is inky and does not skip, creating clean, bump-free strains each single time. The superfine tip additionally makes drawing on wings very easy, and making the factors of these wings additional sharp.
The pigment stays in place for hours, solely fading ever-so-slightly after, say, a 45-minute boxing exercise, which is to be anticipated. And the formulation is not notably tough to take off on the finish of the day. A number of mild swipes of a cotton pad doused in micellar water did the trick.
