Thursday, 12 December 2013

The most reviewed eyeliners of 2013There are so many requirements for a good eyeliner – smudging, fading, running and skipping are all forbidden, and unless you’ve found your favourite, you’re probably still battling with one of these problems. See which five eyeliners our Beauty Addicts reviewed the most this year. 

1. essence Gel Eyeliner
The ultra-smooth gel formula of the essence Gel Eyeliner allows an accurate application similar to liquid eyeliner and ensures a particularly silky finish.

What you said:
“This is my favourite gel eyeliner, it trumps all others I have used. It lasted ages and is highly pigmented.”

2. Essence 2in1 Eyeliner Pen
One eyeliner, two styles: whether you want to achieve a fine line for an elegant, classic look or an extravagant broad line for the drama-queen look.

What you said:
“The pens are easy to command and the colour comes on richly and dark.”

3. Maybelline Eyestudio Gel Liner
An oil-free formula that holds highly concentrated pigments in a clear gel base. It’s smudge-proof and waterproof for 24 hours, has the most intense line for lasting drama and is safe for sensitive eyes and ophthalmologist-tested.

What you said:
“It has the perfect consistency with the perfect velvet texture. I especially like the brush because it helps me apply the eyeliner better than other eyeliner brushes.”

4. Woolworths Wink About It Liquid Liner
This new easy-to-apply liquid liner from Woolies helps define eyes and give them the desirable “pop.” The fine brush helps you line with precision, and for all us animal-lovers out there, the product has also been approved by Beauty Without Cruelty.

What you said:
“This is a winner!! An amazing price tag and Woolworths quality! Lasts all day, doesn’t smudge and looks amazing…”

5. Accessorize Eye Pencil
Glide-on colour that stays put for the duration of your non-stop, on-the-go day. These creamy eye pencils deliver powerful, vibrant colour that slides on smooth and soft.

What you said:
“I love everything about this eyeliner, it has a beautiful pitch black pencil, with a gold design and the word “Accessorize” in a gold embossed text.”

    I used two pots of the Maybelline liner featured and am still feeling two ways about it. The brush starts to plump out after a while and loses that fine thin tip you get in the first month or two. The texture of the product starts to dry out and clump a bit in the pot.
    The up sides are that the colour payoff is gorgeous with nice staying power and the price is great.

    essence’s prices are so affordable – it makes experimenting easier on the pocket. I buy their stuff for travel and use my more indulgent brands for daily wear.

    I used to be an Eye Pencil girl, but since I’ve mastered the technique, it’s Liquid Liner all the way!!

    Essence Gel Liner is hands down the best. It is affordable and for its price it is very pigmented and does not budge. After trying others, I always come back to my Essence Gel Liner.
