When it comes to long-lasting brush-on liquid liners, MAC’s Liquidlast Liners pretty much set the bar for me, combining rich color AND awesome extended wear time. Once I even left a swatch of it on the back of a hand, you know, to see how long it would last? No joke — TWO DAYS!
Yup, and that includes showering and washing my hands.
Liquidlast has rockin’ wear time and comes in a bunch of fun colors … but they’re not exactly cheap ($18.50 each).
Enter Milani. Their five new Infinite Liquid Eye Liners fluid liners have a lot in common with the MAC Liquidlasts (similar thin texture, brush applicator and rich pigmentation), but one way they REALLY differ is price.
Cost: just $6.
And they’re pretty easy to apply and blend, too. I’ve been smudging ’em on my lids as a base for Milani’s Crystal Eyez Glitters (my St. Paddy’s Day FOTD).
Do I think they last as long as MAC’s Liquidlasts?
Almost. Just for fun I tried the same unscientific back-of-the-hand swatch test I did for MAC Liquidlast… Infinite lasted a full 24 hours or so, not quite measuring up to MAC’s 2-day wear time but pretty respectable nevertheless. Considering their colors, quality and price (!), I gotta give big props to Milani.
One item of note: they aren’t exactly quick-dry material and can take up to five minutes to dry. Might be something to think about when you’re in a hurry. I haven’t minded waiting because the extra time’s allowed me to manipulate the liner. All in all, these are darn good for the price, and I hope to see Milani bust ’em out in more colors.

Ugh, I sure can’t par-tay like I used to. I only had one St. Paddy’s beer last night and got home by 10:30, but I’m still tired as all hell, ma!
Expect plenty of nonsense typing like tjlaurieob uio3bv i;doiuc as the day wears on… I believe I just fell asleep at the keyboard.
