As I am all about the winged liner at the moment (cheers trich), I decided to treat myself to a new eyeliner. I know, hold me back. I'd seen this eyeliner floating about the old blogesphere, so I popped into my Boots basket and even paid for it with my points.
How I wish I had put it back on the shelf.
Picture this, it is 8.30am, you are rushing to get your makeup done because you have a lovely 9-4pm in University. You want to look FLAWLESS because you know, life. You get all of your makeup done in 15 minutes like a pro, having to give up false lashes because I'm not that much of a pro. You leave your house at 8.50am and get to lectures by 9am (ok, we were like TWO minutes late but it's a 9am so it's acceptable). It was cold outside, you were walking quite quickly but not enough to get an actual sweat on.
50 minutes later, you feel intellectually enriched from all of the information about the nullity of marriage you have just learnt. You have a ten minute break, so you check your snapchat to see what hilarity has occurred in your absence. The front camera opens. You question yourself, ARE THINE EYES DECEIVING ME?
No. No they are not.
That is really what you look like.
Yes, that is a true story. This is something that happened to me. I wanted to share with you my negative experience as it has deeply scarred me.
Thankfully, I was able to clear it up a bit in the lecture (I had even done a little bit before I look that terrible picture) and I had a pencil eyeliner in my bag as well so I was able to fix it as much as possible.
But that is not the point. It had dried by the time I had left the flat, as I do my eye makeup first and then my foundation etc. It literally had melted off my face within an hour or so. So bizarre.
I don't know whether I will bother wearing it again, I cannot be bothered to be dealing with that kind of drama at silly o' clock in the morning on a cold Thursday morning.
But at the end of the day, if it doesn't work as an eyeliner, it really doesn't matter about all of those things.
I had used it the day before, and I walked 2 miles that day and it held up fine. So maybe it was just a one off. I don't know. All I know is that I used it as I usually use eyeliner and that was the outcome.
It's a real shame that I used up my Boots points on a product that I probably won't use now, but hey, you live and you learn and hopefully you got a laugh out of this post.
Thank you for reading and hope you found my misfortune funny. If you have this product, do let me know if you've had a similar experience or is it well-behaved?
Love, Gweni xxxx
