With the days getting longer, hillsides turning green again and flowers beginning to bloom, I’m not as inclined to spend as much time indoors. I feel like getting out there in it, ya know? Playing outside. Going to the mall, extra trips to Target, the grocery store — whatever. Anything that’ll get me outside.
This applies to makeup. I don’t feel like spending as much time on mine when it’s 70 degrees and sunny outside.
Milani’s Liquid Eyes Liquid-Like liners in Perfect Purple and Graphite ($6.99 each) can help with that.
The company just added both new shades to their super smooth, long-wearing Liquid Eye Liquid-Like line for spring, and in short, they’re essentially drugstore dupes for the MAC Pearlglides.
These tips don’t scoot across my lids in fits and starts. They glide, so no tugging at my skin, and the smudge-proof, paraben-free formula lasts from sunup till sundown.
According to Milani, they’ll stay put for up to 24 hours… I haven’t tested that claim (because when do I stay up a full 24 hours anymore??), but if you plan to party like a rockstar this weekend, I’m guessing your lids will stay lined.
How to use ’em
From Milani’s website, just “Draw a line along both top lash lines from the inner to the outer corner of your eyes. Allow to set for 15 seconds. After use, always replace the cap so the tip does not dry out.”
Just keep them away from your water lines, as they aren’t approved for use on the inner rim (boo).
PRICE: $6.99 each (also available in Black, Aqua and Brown)
AVAILABILITY: Available now at drugstores and also online
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: B+ (bummer about not being approved for water lines)
