I’m going to admit a bit of beauty naivety here – before a couple of hours ago, I had never used a powder liner! Of course, I’ve used eyeshadow as eyeliner, but never in the format of a product like the Revlon Bedroom Eyes Powder Liner:
This was another one of the products that the lovely Caroline Frazer kindly gave to me, and I was really excited to try it out! I’m a big fan of the winged eyeliner look (especially when teamed with red lipstick – gorgeous!) and wanted to try and create the look with this. Unfortunately, I experienced problems from the outset…
Look at that fallout! I look like I’ve just come from playing a role as a chimney sweep in Mary Poppins! Talk about messy…which was a shame as, once the product was actually applied, it looked really quite lovely.
The application itself was also a little tricky – the brush has a foam tip, which is far too thick to apply the liner precisely. On the other hand, it is fantastic for creating the classic cat eye flick, but really not much else.
And again, more cheeky powder falling off left, right and centre! This was the damage it did to my poor Simple Eye Make Up Remover Pad once I’d removed it from various parts of my face:
Ok, Ok, so I know I’ve had a bit of a moan…but I do have to say that the finished result is very nice indeed. It succeeded in creating a bold, sexy eye look, complete with a thick sweep of black powder across the upper lashline and a cute flick at the edge. Was it worth the mess than came along with it? I’m not entirely sure. I can definitely see myself sticking to gel and liquid liners from now on!
