The ‘Blackest Liner’ series is coming to an end. We have already talked about the amazing deep black liners in pencil form. Then we have thoroughly discussed our most favorite blackest felt tip liners. We also didn’t forget about the gorgeous black cream and gel liners and today we are going to have a look at the black liners that come in a liquid form.
I believe that liquid liners are one of the most convenient and precise among all types of liners on the market but it requires the most developed skill in drawing liners at the same time. Once you mastered pencils and felt tip liners, learned how to draw a perfect line with a brush you are ready to use the liquid liners. At least this is how I got to use the liquid liners in the first place.
I have three very interesting liquid liners in deep black for you today. The first one the The Balm Schwing Black Liquid Liner ($17.00). It comes in a very long tube form where the most part of it consists of brush handle. The amount of product you get is 1.7 ml or 0.05 fl. oz. This isn’t much but the product have lasted me for quite some time already as it does not dry out and the amount you need for a nice liner is minimal. The Schwing liner has very nice and flexible felt tip liner with very sharp and tapered point that is ideal for both precise and thick liners. It also allows you to control the amount of product you use and the way you draw the line that is perfect for a very precise work. The finish is matte black but it takes the liner a couple of minutes to get completely dry that means you can get black imprints on the lid if you open your eyes too soon. But if you wait two or three minutes for it to dry – you will get a perfect long-wearing winged liner that stays put till the end of the day.
The next liner I have is the Sephora Long Lasting Eyeliner High Precision Brush ($12.00). This liner comes in a cone-like tube that makes it very stable if you keep your liners on the vanity. With this liner you get 0.085 fl.oz. or 2.5 ml that is a bit more than at the Balm’s one. The handle is nicely designed and is easy to use. The bristle brush is super thin and precise exactly as advertised and the liquid has very distinctive alcohol scent that makes it dry extremely quickly – almost in five seconds. Though it dries super fast it is not long-wearing at all. I strongly advise you to test this product before you get it. As for me even the tiniest drop of water (tears, sweat, rain, etc.) will cause it run. Believe me, it looks horrible when your liner is running off your face.
And finally there is The Body Shop Liquid Eyeliner (£9.00 or $13.50) that comes in several shades and the one I own is in Black. With this liner you get 3 ml or 0.1 fl. oz. that is the largest amount of liquid liner among these being reviewed. It has a well designed felt tip applicator that is not as flexible as the Balm’s one but still is very easy and comfortable to use. I personally love this liner a lot and prefer it to other liners because it is the easiest one to use. This liner is not water-resistant but it won’t run as the Sephora’s one and it’s quite smudge-resistant when it’s set. It needs a minute or so to dry completely and it stays on for the whole day. It is dermatologically tested and is suitable for contact lens wearers that is a huge plus for this liner.
On comparison swatches these three liners look almost identical and the difference is in application and wear time. The finish of all these liners is deep matte black.
