Hey guys! We all love purchasing makeup right? I recently purchased the Laura Mercier Tightline Cake Eye Liner in the shade “Ebony”. Here are my thoughts.
Here is how Laura Mercier describe the product on their site:
An easy-to-use cake eyeliner that delivers long-lasting color payoff for flawlessly defined eyes. The powder formula glides across the lash line smoothly and stays all day long without fading.
•Dermatologist and ophthalmologist-tested.
•Appropriate for contact lens wearers.Laura Mercier
I LOVE compact makeup! A product like this is perfect for a day / night transformation, winged eyeliner to smoky eye, the list goes on. The only downside is that it is easy to magically disappear, especially at the bottom of a cosmetic bag.
Colour and Consistency
I must say, Laura Mericer have got the colour spot on. As a black shade, it can be difficult to create a colour that is truly opaque. And this shade is. Although it says to use water to “activate” the eyeliner, there is no specification as to how much. This may sound silly, but remember those watercolour paints we used to use as kids? Well this is quite like that – too much water and theres black dripping everywhere; not enough and its way too dry to work with. For this reason, always keep a kitchen towel or the use of the back of your hand to swatch.
Every ad talking about this product always mentions longevity. In all honesty, too right! This, without fail, will last all day – no issues. You can always tell because it is an absolute nightmare to get off.
Considering all aspects, this is a great alternative to a typical liquid eyeliner, especially as it cannot leak or damage. A downside to this is that you would need a water supply when applying. However, once applied it looks gorgeous – really filling the lashline and complementing mascara well. It retails at about £16 which is a tad pricey, but Laura Mercier does equal to good quality. Definitely worth a purchase.
