First of all, I just want to say: Happy Mother's Day to all of the mom's out there - and of course, to my own. I hope that you all have a great day being pampered and celebrated!
Anyone who knows me is probably aware of my obsession with eyeliner. It's so serious, that in the last several years, I can think of just one instance when I didn't wear any out in public! It is without a doubt my makeup must-have.
Typically, I opt for black liner, but every once and a while, I like to mix it up. Lately, I've been wearing purple liner a lot more often, either as an accent or to line underneath my eyes. Since there are a few purple liners that I've been using recently, I thought I would do a post on some of the pros and cons of each of them.
Almay, Hello Kitty, Rimmel, MAC
Almay Intense I-Color in Raisin: This is a really pretty liquid liner from Almay. I'll confess that I don't have a ton of products from Almay in my makeup collection, but the ones that I do have, I am impressed with. This raisin coloured liner is subtle but quite pretty. It is a great alternative to a black or brown liner if you are looking for something a little softer, yet still defined. If you're looking for some major drama, however, this liner probably isn't the best choice.
Hello Kitty Glitter Liner in Purple: I don't know how else to say it - this liner is cute...both the packaging and the product! Since this liner is quite thick and wide, it can be more difficult to use, though. So, when I use this, it is typically to line underneath my eyes. This adds a really fun pop of colour to any makeup look, which I love.
Rimmel London Soft Kohl in Purple Passion: By far, this purple liner from Rimmel is my favourite. It has a creamy texture and is super smokey and dark. I am a massive fan of smokey eye looks, so this dark purple liner fits in perfectly with the makeup I love to wear most! I cannot rave about this enough.
MAC Technakohl Liner in Purple Dash: I know there are a lot of MAC fans out there. For me, it really depends on the product. There are some MAC products I love, and others that I don't think are worth the price. Personally, I really don't think this liner is worth the price. While the texture is really nice, the colour payoff isn't fantastic. I actually feel like the Rimmel liner is far superior to the MAC one.
