Why is a good liquid eyeliner so hard to find? You would think it would be easy to get the liner to be well pigmented, and flow well out of a pen applicator. But alas… not so much. In the past I’ve done really well with a few much higher priced liquid liners (my favorites are this one and this one), but at about $20 each that’s pretty expensive.
Well, CoverGirl has come to the rescue! Their new Intensify Me Liner is amazing. I am not exaggerating. It is super pigmented, the black is super black. Just like it should be. The colors (such as the beautiful green shown here) are just the color you expect them to be, and they look very pretty on. They flow out of the pen and apply perfectly. The coverage is solid and dark, not at all patchy. It lasts through the entire day without fading or smudging.
One of the best things about this liner is the applicator. Instead of the typical pointed pen, this one has a paddle. This means you can easily chose how thick you want to line your lash line! Want it thicker? Apply with the thick part. Want to tightline? Twist the pen so you’re using the thin side. This makes it very easy to get a precise line right at your lash line, no more guessing if your line is the same thickness as your other eye!
The only problem I have with this liner is that it is not waterproof. This isn’t an issue for every day wear, but I tend to wear only waterproof eye makeup during the summer in case I decide to swim in my pool. So, I’ll need to switch to a waterproof liquid liner once it warms up a bit.
