This has to be one of my favourite purchases from my recent trip to Korea in Mar/Apr 2012.
Say hello to the Laneige Natural Eyeliner (brush tip).
Now, I’m a lazy bugger who doesn’t give two hoots about dressing up for work. Honestly, you spend more time staring at your computer than looking at your co-workers, so why bother right?
Of course, another reason could be because of my oily lids. They’re so horrendously active in producing oil that I swear the day that eyelid oil can be used for commercial purposes, I’d be filthy rich like an Arab from Dubai.
Everything I apply seems to smudge. First to go will be pencil, crayon, liquid and then gel. By the end of the day, I look like a racoon fit to be King Julian’s companion in Madagascar.
But this time, I have found my saving grace.
Laneige Natural Eyeliner
Application and Effects
I am not kidding when I say this eyeliner stays put. I applied it and went to a ginseng spa in Korea last week, and the entire 3-hour session included:
- bubble bath
- aromatherapy bathtub session
- hot stone massage
- wind therapy in an enclosed room
- overhead rain shower
- water dousing from an overhead wood barrel
- underwater sound therapy
- outdoor and indoor hot tub
- swimming pool
- ginseng face mask in a sauna
Guess what? My eyeliner was about 80% intact after that, and I had no raccoon eyes.
The next day, I went back to Aritaum (the store that sells all of Amore Pacific’s brands) and bought this eyeliner in all shades.
What I have on here is Black – subtle and natural. The Real Black shade is more intense and darker, perhaps more suitable for night usage.
How the eyeliner looks on me today after lunch time – no smudges!
Fresh out of the box!
Twist the end a few times to get the ink flowing.
Everytime you want to use this eyeliner, it’s best to twist the end to get a fresh flow of “juice”. It can be a bit cumbersome, cos then you’ll have to make sure it doesn’t deposit a full blob of ink on your eyes. However, considering the fact that it saves me from having to touch up and does away with any smudges, I say it’s totally worth it!
Update: 25 Apr 2012
After watching three episodes of Dream High 2 yesterday and ogling non-stop at their makeup, I gave in to temptation and opened my Choco Brown eyeliner.
Before the first twist – the pristine white brush tip!
The nice rich chocolate brown colour makes me wanna hunt for Hershey’s…
If you layer it on, it becomes a dark rich chocolate brown that borders on black
Updated 14 Sept 2012 – more swatches 😀
