Dior Style Liner in Argent Silver, AKA Glitter Liquid Liner for Dummies

Published in: Makeup, Product Reviews

Add Dior Style Liner to the ranks of the GOOD GLITTERS. The small size of the flakes and softness of the their texture keeps this silver liquid liner (soo pretty!) from looking too eighth grade dance. It’s the easiest liquid liner I’ve ever used!



Because 1) I’m 33 and 2) very clumsy, I don’t wear many glittery liquid eyeliners. They can be recipes for disaster!

Most liquid liner formulas, particularly ones with glitter in them, tend to run and get all over the place. I call it the glitter conundrum; it seems like when beauty products are built to deliver glitter, glitter drives the product’s development more than the overall quality of the product itself.

That’s why I like Dior Style Liner.

The thick gel formula, the fine grain of the glitter bits (so fine that the product looks almost like metallic paint) and the fine, semi-stiff brush tip applicator make it easier for me to apply and to control than usual for glittery liquid liners.

Not only is Style Liner easy to use, but it feels age-appropriate. I can’t be running around like a wanna-be tween, ya know?

Unfortch, a steep price offsets all this glittery goodness, le sigh! A tube of Style Liner runs about $30, but one tube should last a while. It takes very little product to make a bold, solid line, and it doesn’t budge once it’s in place, so it doesn’t require frequent reapplication throughout the day (or night).

If you’re looking for a fun, eye-catching yet simple look for New Year’s Eve, try a thin line of Dior Style Liner on your upper lash line with curled lashes and two coats of mascara (or some big, false lashes!). :)

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

    Karen !! This is such a conincidence ! I just got a Body Shop glitter eyeliner in silver and one in a peacock green and its gorge! Looks just like the dior one you mentioned but Dior’s packgaing is so Ooh La La ! Have you tried Urban Decay’s glitter eyeliners ? They are a lil chunky comparitively I think…
    Hope you’re having fun !!!

    Wow, Dior seems to have done well with the glitter in all their products. Don’t know if I would ever be able to make a liner that bright work for me, but I like the way it works for you. I think I’ll stick to Blitz & Glitz from MAC for now. :P

    Are you going to be hitting up any of the after Christmas sales? I’m still too broke from Christmas, lol.

    Hey Karen,
    Im loving glitter liners at the moment, i have never really thought of them as the kinda thing i would ever use but we have a great drug store brand in the UK called Collection 2000 which does amazing glitter liners which ive been loving lately, they are even great used all over the lid for a super sparkly eye!!

  6. Karen B says:

    That silver liner looks amazing on you. really makes your eye pop. Nice!

    I love glitter–I’ve loved sparkly things since I was little! One question, though, I wear glasses, do you think I could pull off glittery eye shadow, or would that be too much?

  8. Glosslizard says:

    That is a gorgeous silver liner! Yum! Dior gives good glitter! ;)

    I was also pleasantly surprised by Too Faced glitter liner in Ooh and Aah! It’s a black and silver glitter liner that has huge-looking chunks of glitter in the tube, but once I put it on, I didn’t think it looked OTT at all! Maybe it’s the black glitter that just ends up making it look like a high-payoff black sparkle liner rather than a disco ball on steroids, but I like it! The liner gel itself (binder?) seems to be clear, so one could probably wear it over a color liner to nice effect as well!

    I really love the glitter color, silver also goes well with the holiday season and really looks good on you.

    Completely agree with Holly, Collection 2000′s glitter liners are AMAZING and they only cost £2.99. I used to use MAC and Urban Decay, but the Collection 2000 liners have a denser amount of glitter and don’t flake off. I’ve accidentally fallen asleep with some on and it was still perfect come the morning (unfortunately the pillow wasn’t!)

    I think the silver looks great on you, are you going to be rocking it come New Year’s eve?

  11. Karen says:

    Hi Indian Girl,

    I haven’t! I still have to try them because I’ve heard nice things about ‘em.

    How was your weekend?

  12. Karen says:

    Hi Elena,

    I got a few gift cards but I didn’t go to the mall… I’m sort of shopped out!

    OoO — Blitz & Glitz is a wonderful Fluidline! One of my faves. :)

  13. Karen says:

    Hi MusicFer,

    It’s nice to meet you, Fernanda. Funny you should mention Brazil. I just found out that there’s a Brazilian Supermarket in the town next to mine and I’m very excited because I can get an Acai bowl! YAY!

    Do you have any favorite Brazilian cosmetics lines? I dunno if/when I’ll be able to travel there (I love traveling), but someday I’d like to go!

  14. Karen says:

    Hi Jojoba,

    Thanks sweets! I usually am not a glitter kinda girl, but Dior just does it right!

  15. Karen says:

    Hi Holly,

    Oh, thanks for the rec! I will see if I can find that line here!

  16. Karen says:

    Hi Karen B.,

    Hey sweetie! Thank you! :) How was your Christmas?

  17. Karen says:

    Hi Lucky,

    I wear glasses, too, and I think if you do the glitter in moderation you’d be fine. If I’m wearing my specs I usually will keep it to a line of glitter on the top lash line, or a bit of sparkly shadow on the lid. :) It’s just enough without being too OTT.

  18. Karen says:

    Hi Glosslizard,

    The gel seems to make a difference, yah? I really like that it makes it so easy to use.

    I will have to look into Ooh and Aah. I remember trying one Too Faced crazy green glitter liner one a few months ago at Sephora and being a bit overwhelmed, but I think I can handle black and silver. :)

    Go glitter!

  19. Karen says:

    Hi Tavia,

    Thanks, hon! What other glitter eye products do you like?

  20. Karen says:

    Hi NJ,

    Wow! That’s some real deal staying power!

    I dunno yet if I’ll do the silver glitter eye for New Years — I probably will since it’s super easy and very festive. It also gives me an excuse to practice putting on false lashes.

    Do you have your New Year’s look planned out yet? :)

  21. Karen B says:

    My Christmas was nice :) Lots of family and good food and a nice tree so I’m happy :)

    Karen B´s last blog post..Feel the love!!!! wheeee!

    A bit pricey but it sure does look like fun.

    And girl, you don’t look 33 at all.
