Had me at waterproof
Wouldn’t have considered trying this but I’m a sucker for 2 in 1 products, so a 2 colored pencil eyeliner, a personal preference, waterproof and on sale, yes please! It’s been awhile since I’ve tried anything from CG, so this was interesting to try. First off the colors: You wouldn’t think a color called Espresso would be very dark as opposed to Black, but this one was, very dark and deep, which surprised me. It also went on very soft, and thick, another surprise. I’m not really a fan of a truly black liner, I have chinita eyes, the way I like to line my everyday eyes, Black just seems to shrink them more, so not a fan of this end of the pencil. Now the to the other end and the Penny drops! This was much better! I’m a fan of these colors, not opaque, but with some shine, gives a lighter more brightening effect with great color. It didn’t go on too soft or thick, this is the true lining end, still goes on smoothly but not messy. The best part, it really stood the waterproof test, I was at an outdoors party last May and it was a sweat fest, came home happy to find it was intact, some liners would’ve smudged a bit or flaked, so thumbs up, it did what it said. Now I wish I got the Cashmere combo, since the Espresso, was, ahem!, too strong.
