Since I’ve developed a not-so-random new interest in make up, I decided to blog a little about it. Let’s start with a little something about an eyeliner I used to day and what happened later that prompted me to write about it.
I like it because of the super fine tip, which is great for a subtle line. All you need for day wear is a subtle line. It’s also a little easier to handle than a conventional liquid eyeliner. There’s a consistant supply of colour. No re-inking necessary.
Here are some test lines I drew on my hand. The fine lines are a result of working the tip lightly, and the thicker lines is when you apply more pressure on your skin.
It’s quite lasting once it dries. It smudges a bit when you rub it, but this is when it’s on my hand. I do test lines before I actually line my eyes, and that sticks around for a while even then I try to rub it! However, I managed to put it to the extreme test today.
I put make up on because I needed to take a photo to get a new driving license made (which is another story altogether). My dad drove us down to JPJ in 12th Mile and we got it done pretty quickly. Since we had time, we went to Semenggoh Wildlife Centre, just in time to watch orang utans come out for food.
There is a 200m walk through the jungle before you get to the feeding area, so you can imagine how much I sweated in this heat! I thought this liner was waterproof but I guess it wasn’t sweat proof. See what happened:
It transferred neatly to my crease line! And that won’t come off until I used a make-up remover on it.
Well, make-up isn’t for jungle hiking in anyway! But if you’re mostly in the office or do a little running around in the city, it should last just fine.
