I need another black liquid liner like I need another reason to watch Magic Mike! — but that’s not stopping me from wanting another black liquid liner, especially a good one with the power of innovation.
Fellow liner lover, walk with me for a bit as we bat our lashes at the new 3*Way Lash Lining Tool from Too Faced ($22).
Do you suffer from chronic tardiness? (I do!) Thin lashes got you down? (Yup!)
If you answered in the affirmative to either of those inquiries, Too Faced feels they can help, and their solution takes a three-pronged approach.
The new 3*Way has a three-pronged tip — kinda like a trident — designed to create the illusion of a full lash line; the product doubles (triples?) as a liquid liner to draw both thin and thick lines, hence the name.
It works like this: starting at one end of your upper lash line, place the prongs at the base of your lashes between the roots. Gently apply pressure to dispense the liquid, stamping three black dots. Repeat along the full length of your lash line, filling in the spaces between your lashes.
When you’re done, your lash line should look a whole lot thicker.
Alternately, to use the 3*Way as a liquid liner for super skinny lines, just drag the edge of one of the three tips along your lash and water lines, or for thicker lines, like for cat eyes, make contact with all three tips placed flat.
Now, dotting liner along the base of your lashes and between the roots isn’t a new trick. Sometimes it’s referred to as “backing the lashes,” and truth be told, most any black liner, be it liquid or pencil, can deliver a similar effect.
But Too Faced took an interesting approach with their three-pronged tip, and it’s a design I can’t recall ever seeing before. It does seem to make the process of getting between my roots easier and quicker.
As a liner, I think 3*Way excels at drawing super skinny lines. It struggles a little when it comes to thicker cat eyeliner looks, drawing edges that aren’t extremely crisp, so for those, I’ll stick to my good ol’ LORAC Front of the Line Pro.
With 3*Way, Too Faced has a fun little tool on its hands — a nifty extra, especially for the lash obsessed!

MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: B+
I’m almost ashamed to admit this (almost), but I’ve watched Will Ferrel’s Step Brothers three times since last week…
I skipped it in theaters when it came out a few years back figuring it would be totally dumb (which it…nevermind), but I Tivo’d it just for kicks, and um…I LOVE IT!
What am I? A 13-year-old boy?
Oscar bait it ain’t, but I laughed out loud the first time I watched it.
If you’re looking for a pick-me-up that requires very little (or zero) brain power, there’s a good chance it’ll put a smile on your face.
