Jordana’s Fabuliner Bold Felt Tip Liquid Eyeliner

I feel like my makeup universe has been out of balance lately — like something’s off kilter, out of whack.

I’m not sure, but I think it has something to do with liquid liner…

And Tom Ford.

I haven’t gotten over the price of Tom’s Eye Defining Pen in Deeper, and I don’t know if I ever will.

I mean, it’s $55…

WHICH IS CRAZY! But other than that, it’s almost perfect in every single way. The whole universe is confused…

There has to be a drugstore liquid liner equivalent out there to restore the makeup planetary balance.

Maybe it’s Jordana’s new $2.99 Fabuliner Bold Felt-Tip Liquid Eyeliner.

Available now at Walgreens in a single shade called Black, it’s long-wearing, deep and intense, without any red or blue undertones, and it dries to a slightly shiny finish.

It also dries fast! I’m talking Roadrunner fast, like the moment it touches my lids, BAM! It’s dry within seconds.

I love that I can plop it on, blink, and not have to worry about it transferring into my crease. It’s instant cat eye gratification, and I don’t even have to wear primer, since it lasts like a mutha’.

And then there’s the tip.

THE TIP! It’s firm and felt, kind of like an art marker, but…

…it’s a little tricky to use on account of how stiff it is. It doesn’t give at all, so when I run the tip across my lids, it skips and leaves a line with a jagged edge.

With some effort, I can get smooth lines with it. I pull my lid taut, run Fabuliner across 3-4 times, and eventually get a nice crisp edge, badabing-badabang. Same thing with the cat eye flick at the end, but it does take some effort.

I like FabuLiner well enough, even with the rigid tip. It’s only $2.99 after all. That’s not bad.

    This looks really great but I don’t think I could deal with having to go over my line several times.

    Are the new 2013 Jordana products only exclusively available at Walgreens ?

    I stopped by my local KMart 2 weeks ago & they didn’t have any displays with the new products, nor were they in the permanent Jordana display.

    We don’t have a Walgreens in my city, so I was pretty bummed.
