Streetwear Metal Eyes Liquid Liner: Royal Indigo Review
Hi ladies! In tune with my recent street wear makeup craze, I am reviewing the new metal eyes liner in royal indigo today.i believe this is apparently new on the block, as I saw the SA just arranging them out on the counter from a sealed pack carton full of makeup:heavenly: I was in style one mall in Chennai where I had gone to pick up some more lipsticks like cocoa matte n buff matte but they were out of stock:wilt: I chose some more from the testers but no fresh pieces were available:wilt: that’s when I saw some other girl bringing a carton full of makeup which were mostly filled with these metal eyes liners. it was quite a mix but I hurriedly picked up some …they had no testers so she opened four fresh pieces(they do that all the time)
Colors available: Royal indigo, dark green shade, dark brown shade and the black one.
Price Rs 300 for 2.5 ml (but I am very sure this is even lesser in health and glow)
This liner claims to be a metallic liner but I don’t think is anywhere close to that. its a very everyday though shiny liner with very fine and mixed shimmer in it. the color is so beautiful to wear with shimmer reflecting back when light falls on it.otherwise apart from bright light this liner may look very regular.thats the fun, the shimmer in it does not make it over the top at all and this one is very different from my other metallic liners, which do not have shimmer mixed in but are metallic on the whole(I donno how to put this)the shimmer here is little multicoloured nut not noticeable unless someone takes a closer look.the other colors were black with shimmer something like onyx from lakme(compared in picture).it is not like lakme intense shine liners as well.
Instead of metal eyes , these should have been called shimmer eyes. These are just too beautiful to look at. My next favourite will be the dark green one , then the black and then the black one. 🙂
Now here is the catch: The liner after 3 minutes of application had a moderate burning sensation over my lids just above the area where I line my eyes. This gave me the shock of my life. I thought it must be something other than that and dismissed it .The next day and the day after, I tried these again and experienced the same burning sensation, a few minutes after application. This subsided after ten minutes or so. It may be that due to continued usage of eye liners for years my eyes may have gotten a a sensitivity problem but this never happened to me with any other pencil, gel, liquid liner ever. So I really suggest sensitive eyes to stay away from this as we cannot take a chance with our eyes. Others, please try it at the counter before purchasing. 🙂
Not so good apart from this is that though it would stay for four hours, the slightest touch of water or sweat may wash it off. On being smudged it releases a lot of shimmer which may shine even more than the liner.
• Not opthalmologically tested in my opinion, has to be tested on skin before purchase
• Sensitive eyes stay away
• Pretty colors
• Smudge at the slightest force or water or sweat
• Consistency is little on the runny side, not so much tho!
• Like the packaging, long and slim
• Somewhere between shiny to shimmery but still suitable for evening wear or night
• Nice break from our blacks and specially gel liners that we have moved to!
• Not so great for the price but anyone will fall for the four colors .beware!
Meanwhile my hunt for the cocoa matte and buff matte lipsticks is still on.
Imbb rating 3 on5 just for the colors.
