As much as I love eyeliner, something I dislike about it is it smudging. If you’re trying to make your eye make up look last the day, you don’t want to be looking in the mirror half way through and finding out it’s half way down your cheek! This is my review of the 17 Tattoo Me Liquid Eyeliner, which is semi-permenant.
The eyeliner claims to have a 48 hour wear life – I would personally never wear it for that long as I religiously take my make up off each night, but it’s impressive nonetheless!
The brush is quite fine, which is something I really like. Classic liquid eyeliner brushes never work very well for me, so this was a nice change!
I have actually tried this eyeliner on my eyes, but wanted to do more of an experiment for this review. I decided to draw a (bit of a dodgy-looking) star on my hand with the eyeliner and test how tattoo-like it really is!
Here is the star I drew (don’t laugh):
I waited for it to dry to give it a fair chance, then gave it a really hard scrub with my finger. I wanted to see whether it would smudge or flake off, and I was pleased with the results!
So as you can see, the star kept it’s general shape nicely and only blurred slightly in the middle. It dries to a relatively matte finish which is nice, and very classic. I did manage to get the eyeliner off my hand with my trusty Simple Cleansing Wipes, which is a bonus, but it does take a bit of scrubbing to get it off.
If you don’t mind your eyes getting rubbed a bit, this is a fantastic product to try out. It retails for £4.99 from Boots.
