Today, I am sharing my thoughts on the Tips and Toes Blue Sapphire Eyeliner. I am a big fan of coloured eyeliners, I just keep collecting them. I saw this eyeliner at the recently opened Tips and Toes counter. I haven’t tried anything from this brand so I thought I should give it a try. The war between my mind and heart was ended with the thought to just give it a try with one product, the makeup addict in me forced me to pick up four more products 😛 I bought their new eye pencils, eyeliner and a gloss. I would also want to tell you all that when I was checking out their products, I saw a face perfecting primer, not bad, this brand has been launching new stuff. Read on to know more about the Tips and Toes eyeliner.
To make your eyes more dramatic and give you the glamorous look at nights and achieve a soft look in the day Tips and Toes has introduced Eye Lights in 6 striking shades- Blue Sapphire, Black Onyx, Emerald Glow, Purple Passion, Manne Magic and Silver Shine. Make your eyes life of a party or at work with range of intense colours that glide (fall) easily on your eye lids. The brush comes with softer felt tips not only protecting your sensitive eyes but also defining the makeup. It’s easy to use and more comfortable even for first time users; brush is for more professional hand. So, get an intense metallic finish with quick drying, water resistant and long lasting Eye Lights. Use Intense black water proof eye liner and after it dries, one can use Eye Lights for dramatic and party look.
INR 250 for 3 ml.
The tips and toes eyeliner retails in a small plastic transparent bottle. The name of the product is printed on the bottle in silver. The product manufacture date is printed below the bottle. The shelf life of the product is for 2 years from the date of manufacture. The liner brush is a soft felt tip applicator which is easy to use.
Blue Sapphire is a metallic deep blue shade with hint of black in it. After a few minutes of drying, the black undertone softens and the pretty blue colour looks more vivid.
Texture and Pigmentation:
The texture of the eyeliner is a little gritty as there are silver sparkles with the blue eyeliner. The sparkles are not chunky but it gives a nice finish as it blends well with the blue colour. The consistency is neither too thick and once it gets dry, it settles well. The pigmentation is good, you get good intensity of colour in two strokes. The liner gives a good finish, I did not notice it leaving cracks. The eyeliner is not completely waterproof and that is a bad point about the product.
The product has average staying power. It stays around 4 hours on me. The only thing which I really don’t like about the eyeliner is that the silver particles after some two hours of wear time, move away from the liner. The silver particles get sparingly spread over the eye, not really far, but just above the liner.
Pros of Tips and Toes Eye Lights Blue Sapphire Eyeliner:
- Pretty blue colour.
- The colour will suit all Indian skin tones.
- Reasonably priced.
- The brush applicator works fine in applying the liner easily.
- Dries quickly.
- Average staying time.
Cons of Tips and Toes Eye Lights Blue Sapphire Eyeliner:
- The silver sparkles spread sparingly just above the liner in about two hours of wear time.
- The eyeliner is not completely waterproof.
- Availability – there are only a few Tips and Toes outlets.
Will I Repurchase/Do I Recommend Tips and Toes Eye Lights Blue Sapphire Eyeliner?
No, I would not buy it again, I am now hunting for matte coloured liners and I don’t recommend you to buy it, there are so many liner options in drug store brands which offer you better quality at the same or at a little extra price tag.
