Milani Liquif’eye Metallic Eye liner review

Just a quick observation before I start this review. Why are product names so long?! (this isn’t the longest, but geez.)

Right,back to business. Today I’m going to be reviewing the Milani Liquif’eye, which I had been hearing a lot about since late last year. EleventhGorgeous and Xteeener along with some other YouTubers were raving about how great this eyeliner was, and I was very tempted to try it. So when I finally saw it back in stock in Diamond Girl, I had to grab one quick! (thank goodness too, because the next time I went there, they were out of black again). It was $10-15BDS (I forget exactly) for this eyeliner, kind of pricey, but at least it’s worth it! Temptalia also reviews these here.


 


I picked up the black eyeliner and it is a very intense black. It lasts all day and even seems waterproof (once you don’t rub your eyes). Definitely does not smudge once it’s set, and I haven’t had and irritation with my eye either. I remember I would use this cheap black eyeliner, that would disappear from my waterline the second I put it on, and made my eyes water so bad! It never set, so it constantly smudged. It was horrible.


The Liquif’eye takes about10 seconds to dry completely, and within that time you can do all the smudging you want because it’s soft like butter (so soft even that while I was doing swatches the point broke off). The black is a satin finish, which glides on very easily and does not tug at my eyelids. When I’m ready to take it off, it’s actually very easy. Just place one of my Almay eye makeup remover pads on the area for about 5 seconds or less and swipe it right off. What I really hate though, is sharpening this product. It feels like a lot of it goes to waste that way.


The swatch on the right was the eyeline rubbed vigorously after setting. You would in no way rub your eye like this.
The swatch on the left was tested for water-resistance. Unless you plan on rubbing while your eyes are still wet, you're not going to see any bleeding of the eyeliner.

Pros:
  • Good Pigmentation
  • Glides on easily (like butter)
  • Smudge-proof after it sets
  • Somewhat waterproof  (doesn’t say on packaging, but seems that way)
  • Paraben-free
  • Lasts ALL day (minimal fade)
Cons:
  • Pricey
  • Little product (feels like u waste it sharpening)
  • Sells out quickly, so stock up when you can
The Raw Sugar:
Besides the price here in Barbados and wastage caused by sharpening, this is a great eyeliner, I’d definitely recommend it to everyone. It’s pigmented, comes in a few colours other than black, it’s smudge-proof and waterproof, PLUS it lasts all day!

XOXO
