Is Blue Eyeliner Tacky!?

Blue eyeliner gets a bad wrap. I guarantee you, you can wear blue eyeliner and not look tacky.  It all comes down to how you’re wearing it.  The simplest and easiest way to wear blue eyeliner is with a simple and clean eye look, and pick a blue that’s deep enough that it still defines your eyes.  That’s what an eyeliner in general is supposed to do, a blue can not only define but really pop on any color of eye/skintone.  I found the perfect blue eyeliner in the Avon True Color SuperExtend Precise Liquid Pen in Sapphire Blue.  It defines and pops and wears beautifully.  I can get a precise line, wing it out if I want to and now get a great deep blue color.  You can read my full review here.

Word Of Alicia:  

This Avon True Color SuperExtend Precise Liquid Liner in black has been my #1 favorite liquid liner since they discontinued my long time mark. favorite.  What I like about this formula is its nice and opaque, goes on really smooth and lasts all day.  I can get expert precision with the shape and has a great grip.  More importantly, I can get that wing every time… and if its not awesome I can dab the felt tip to fill in, or thicker.  This applies to all 3 shades.

New Shades Like Hunter Green

New Shades Like Hunter Green!

My review on the colors themselves, black is an obvious win.  Sapphire Blue is really great not too dark not to bright, super wearable for day or night and still gives that definition you want from an eyeliner look.  Hunter Green isn’t as vibrant as I was hoping for.  It still looks good on, but I go into knowing its more of a softer look.  I also love that they put the color on the ends so you can easily determine which pen is what color!

Colored Ends For Easy Indexing

Colored Ends For Easy Indexing

Most excellent eyeliner but most horrible cap design.  What I don’t like about these eyeliners are how easy it is for the caps to come off.  I can’t tell you how many times in my makeup bag the cap comes off and it gets all over my hand when I reach in, plus when I loose the cap it dries out quicker.  That is why I keep these in a cup with my brushes to avoid cap loss.  My only other complaint is the amount of product.  Maybe its because I wear this everyday but I go through these so quick.  I usually buy two at a time because I know I’ll use one up before I order again.  Which isn’t to big of a deal because they are usually on sale for $4.99 or buy one get one deal, and even with the original price of $8 it is still a great price for a great product.  Overall, even with the poor cap design, these are still my favorite eyeliners.  Black on heavy repeat and now sapphire blue as well, hunter green as a random choice when I want something different.
