Eyeliners. They've become a must for me when I do my makeup nowadays. Besides getting compliments about how I apply them, I just find my eye makeup boring without the added definition from an eyeliner. But because of the heat this summer, a sweat-proof eyeliner is necessary so that it won't smudge around my eyes and give me panda eyes. Good thing I was able to score this liquid liner from the launch event by Kiss Me Heroine Make.
Kiss Me Heroine Make Impact Liquid Eyeliner
I think this is worth Php 595.00 but I got this for free when I attended the event.
And the one that I have is in 01 Black. Not sure how many shades are out there. Will do further research. :P
The packaging is pretty simple. No bulky shape, just this slim, plastic twist bottle. It still has the royalty vibe that is visible in Heroine Make products (Princess Elizabeth, the one that appears on their package, is their muse) because of the combination of red violet and gold plus the font design and of course, the crown.
Because of the slim shape, this is easily one of the products I would grab when I go traveling. It doesn't hurt that it promises:
1. Super Waterproof type
2. Ultra black formula
3. Elastic fine brush
With all those promises, of course I was excited to try this when I received it. I am a bit biased when it comes to Japanese eyeliner brands because they don't smudge easily and they really are black! This is the first time that I will get to try one from Heroine Make though, so I'm still curious if what I was thinking was correct. :P
So let's check out if what they claim is true.
Here's a closeup of the brush. It's very fine, very easy to create thin lines with it. It's not hard nor does it shed and it really does bend to the direction you want it to go. I find the brush really good!
Here's the swatch on my hand. I think the "ultra black" claim is also true, especially for a liquid liner. Just make sure to shake the product before applying! :)
Now, it's time to see how long-lasting this product is...
I wiped it with my fingers a couple of times.
I wiped it hard with a cloth.
It didn't smudge at all! Woah!
I rubbed it with water.
Waterproof—check! I'm impressed!
Even though it's waterproof, it can easily be removed by a good makeup remover unlike their waterproof mascaras. MAN! Those are hard to remove! Haha!
Rubbed it with cloth while it was wet with water.
Still there and no smudge! I'M AMAZED!
Okay, all three promises are true as you can see on the photos. Another good thing about this is when I apply this, I don't have to wait so long for it to dry. But there's a little downside though. I have oily lids and when I don't put enough primer or didn't blot, I do encounter a bit of smudging. *sigh* Not much of an issue for me though because this ALWAYS happens on my extremely oily lids. Hmph.
Anyway, here's how I apply the liner:
So to sum my review up:
What I LIKE:
- Good applicator—easy to use
- Really black
- Dries easily after application
- Locally available
- Can be easily removed by makeup removers
- No irritations encountered
What I DON'T LIKE:
- When my lids get too oily, it smudges a little
Would I buy again? Yes. That's an easy yes. I recommend this to those who love using liquid liners!
And that's my review of the Kiss Me Heroine Make Impact Liquid Eyeliner! Have you tried this yet? What about their other products?
