Did anyone else just laugh inside at the name of this product? No? Just me? I love a good pun!
This is my second Prestige Cosmetics review this week; my first was of the Prestige Total Intensity Eyeliner in Deepest Black, which I have really warmed to. This review, of the Prestige Cosmetics Liquid Eyeliner in Big Teal, will be a little harder to write as I only have one or two similar products to compare it to.
Metallic blue liquid eyeliner isn’t the sort of colour I go for on a regular basis, but I have to admit that just a little of it can create quite a stunning effect – if I wear it (or something similar) I use just a small amount to line my upper lash line, and it can really make your eyes pop.
I’m very fussy about and critical of liquid eyeliners; if they are too runny, too watery, have too thick or thin a brush and are difficult to control I’m not afraid to mention it!
The consistency of this product is actually very good – no watery residue is left behind and it is just the right thickness to leave a lovely effect. I do have to say that it requires more than one coat, which is a little annoying considering it retails for £5.99 for 3ml. Nevertheless, the final effect is quite stunning, so it could be argued that it’s worth it!
The brush is fairly standard, and easy to work with once you get the hang of applying liquid eyeliner (something which took me a long time!). I’m not very keen on the ultra thin brush handle, as it can quite easily slip out of your hand – not something you want when applying such a tricky product!
I was lucky enough to be given this product by the lovely Caroline Frazer -but would I buy it myself in the future? Honestly, I think this one pot of the product will last me long enough, but I would be tempted to try it in another colour at some point.
