If LORAC had a Navy (they do), and it was recruiting (they are), I’d tell the ladies in charge that this sailor is going to need a steady supply of Front of the Line Pro Liquid Eyeliner if you want her to sign up.
Because I am not about to get stuck at sea without the proper tools to do cat eyes.
I’d also add that I absolutely, positively don’t do boats.
Sorry. Just one of my stipulations. 🙂
Ulgh, all the bobbing up and down… Makes me a little nauseous, which is kind of funny, seeing as how I come from Navy stock (my dad was in the service), and I love the ocean.
New LORAC Front of the Line Pro Liquid Eyeliner in dark blue Navy ($23) is the latest shade in the brand’s fabulous line of liquid liners.
I’ve been a fan of the original black version for years. I like it because it’s relatively inexpensive, I can get really crisp lines with it, and the long, flexible tip makes it easy to draw those little flicks at the ends of my cat eyeliner.
A dark bluish black (no green in it), Navy has a gorgeous satiny finish that loves lash lines, and it’s strong as iron! It easily lasts all day.
I think it really does a lot for brown, green and hazel eyes (and other eye colors too).
The tube I’ve been using, though, might be a little wonky, and I’m actually hoping it’s a manufacturing error. For reasons unknown, this particular pen is nowhere near as easy to wield as the other Front of the Lines I’ve used, and I’ve gone through three or four of them over the past few years.
It’s because of the tip. The one on this pen has more give than I’m used to, so it’s less firm, softer, and it makes drawing the flicks on my cat eyes more difficult.
Something might also be going on with the ink, as it flows out from the felt tip inconsistently. I really have to shake the pen to coax it forth. (I mean seriously put my back into it. I look like I’m making margaritas.)
I’m a tad bewildered.
Could this be a faulty pen? I wonder… If you’ve tried this shade and had any issues, let me know.
Big ups for the color and wear, but this one isn’t easy to use, and it’s bumming me out, man.
AVAILABILITY: Permanent, and available now online and at LORAC counters
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: B- (assuming my issues with the product aren’t isolated to this particular pen)
