Hello, dear readers.
It’s been awhile since I’ve reviewed any Guerlain product. Today, I’ll review Guerlain liquid eye liner.
When it comes to eyeliners, I’ve always preferred a stiff applicator to the brush one. However, finding Guerlain Eye Liner in the shade Metal d’Or for like $11 (the full price being close to $40), I couldn’t resist.
Guerlain Eye Liner comes in a pebble-like frosted glass bottle which contains 5 ml. It is a bi-phase product, so you have to shake it well prior to using it. When it is not used, it will separate to watery and pigment phase.
The brush is thin, but not too soft. The handle of the brush is long, making it very easy to manipulate. I can get all sorts of lines with it – from the thin to the thicker.
The shade Metal d’Or is a metallic gold with a hint of copper. I find it very appropriate for either holiday or summer season – it goes well with the festive gold or summer bronze skin. It is very pigmented, so you won’t have to worry that it will leave transparent patches.
The eye liner is very longwearing. Once applied, it quickly dries and it won’t budge until you remove it with the make-up remover, no matter how much you rub your eyes. My huge fear was that if would simply flake off the eyes, but it doesn’t.
All in all, this is a HG. Once I spend Chanel Mirifique and L’Oreal All Night Blue eyeshadows, I’m switching to these.
