Last week I was given the chance to try out a new line of eyeliners from MaxFactor. I thought I’d share my thoughts with you all as these are something you might want to keep an eye out for once they hit the shops in June. The ‘Liquid Effect’ liners are Max Factor’s answer to the Urban Decay 24/7 and Make Up for Ever Aqua Eyes Liners… super soft pencil liners that go on like a dream, stay smudge-able for 30 seconds or so before setting and becoming super waterproof and long-wearing.
There are 6 shades in the line including the standard black, brown and grey colours, a rather garish green, a pretty plum and my personal favourite… a lilac-grey-taupe shade called Lilac Flame (third from the left)Overall I’m seriously impressed with these liners. They are much better than the MUFE Aqua Eyes in my opinion, and on a par with the Urban Decay 24/7’s. For some reason the black applies better than the others in the waterline, but they all apply beautifully along the lash line and stay on all day. The little smudger on the end comes in useful if you want a more messy look…I’m not sure what price these will be. Max Factor isn’t normally cheap as chips but it will most certainly be more affordable than Urban Decay so if you’re on the market for a new liner I’d recommend checking these out, especially ‘Lilac Flame’.
