mark Eyeliner [product review]
About a year ago (or was it 2?), I posted about my 30 second make-up routine. Since then, the routine has stayed fairly the same with a couple of experiments here + there. After all of my Clinique Quickliner pencils ran out at the same time, I decided to try mark's Eyemarker Color On Line.
*The color goes on very very smooth. As a mom who can't fuss with my eye make-up and needs to run out the door (because I am always always always late), that's a huge plus. The color goes on quickly and easily.
*Very bright colors. This is especially good for women of color, who need something more vibrant against our skin.
*Nice options of colors. I especially like the blue.
*Not good for women with oily skin. The color not only didn't stay put, but at one point, I had blue eyeliner UNDER my eyes. Dark circles + blueish eyeliner color? No bueno.
*The colors can be a bit too glittery for day. Especially the purple and green. Those seem more appropriate for evening. (I've actually taken to layering the purple and green with a brown eyeliner from Maybelline to cut down some of the Liberace glitz)
While I really miss my Clinique eyeliner (especially the purple!), the mark version is a nice alternative. And if you are interested in other mark products, try the Dew Drenched Moisturlicious Lip Color. I swear by every color and pair them with my LaBello lip balm. Good good stuff.
