The weirdest thing made me buy this item – the grammatical error. It’s “Make Me A Star”, people, not “Make Me Star”. It doesn’t even make sense whether you want the person to make you into a celebrity-star, or to make you an origami star. Even if you want someone to literally make you into a star and propel you into outerspace, it still isn’t grammatically correct.
Phew. Now that I’ve gotten that rant out of my system, I can properly review this product.
For those who can’t read Korean, here’s an English version with the shade names.
Prior to visiting The Face Shop during my recent trip to Korea, I had already hit Aritaum and bought
so too many black eyeliners from Laneige. Thus, I decided to rein myself in a bit and stop buying dark coloured eyeliners and got the Peach Shower one instead.
Application and Effects
I’d discovered during my makeover with Laneige’s Romeo Eun that these light-coloured eyeliners are essential in “opening” up your eyes and making them larger than they seem.
However, what I like about this is that it can be both an eyeliner and eyeshadow.
Used as an eyeliner – the colour is more intense
When blended out with the hidden tip (from the other end of the pencil), it becomes a nice and relatively smudge-proof eyeshadow.
The gel is smooth, creamy, and is easy to blend even with the tip sponge (which is slightly hard). There isn’t much effort or pulling of the lids needed to blend.
It doesn’t run much throughout the day, and this is where I regret not buying it in all the colours. If I remember correctly, it was pretty damn cheap too, at about KRW4,000+.
Never mind… I’ll be back in Korea again before you guys know it 😀
