Quick Review: Milani Liquif’eye Metallic Eye Liner Pencil in #03 Gold
January 24, 2013 3 Comments
Whether it be the colour or the material, I love, love, love gold. When it comes to using silver or gold jewelry, gold just looks better against my skin–a good sign that I have warm undertones– and the same goes with makeup. I rarely ever go with a black and silver smokey eye because it tends to wash me out. I much prefer a bronzey look with lots of browns and warm golden tones. Naturally, getting a the Milani Liquif’eye eyeliner in gold was a no-brainer, especially since it didn’t look to be too bright of a gold and more like an “antique” gold shade.
I picked this up from Stuff in Style about a month ago for 350.00 php, which is not a bad price for a good eyeliner. It came in sealed packaging (the kind with cardboard backing and sealed plastic over top) so I knew it was brand new and everything.
The wear is decent, but I still prefer the formula of NYX slide on pencils which sell at a similar price and come in a wider range of colours. I’m not sure if this is meant to be waterproof but it doesn’t seem to be that way. It’s nice on the upper lid but slips and slides off the waterline pretty quick.
Overall, this is just a good eye liner pencil. Nothing to rave about but nothing horrible either. Its strongest point is the muted gold colour, which is harder to find than very bright golds.
