Milani has some seriously amazing new liquid eye liners out for spring 2010 called Infinite. They come in five different colors and have serious color impact!
I swatched these the other day and was pretty pleased with how much color these put off. I always am a wee bit weary of drug store cosmetics because a lot of times I have found that they are seriously lacking in either formula or opacity, but not these!
First off the colors are very opaque. What you see in the swatches above is one swipe up and one down with the tiny brush applicator, and that’s it!
Secondly they are vivid! Well ok the black isn’t really *vivid* but the other four are very bright and pretty.
Thirdly they LAST. I mean LAST. After I swatched these I tried removing them from my hand with a Wet Wipe. I had to SCRUB and SCRUB and there were still faint marks hours later, after washing my hands a few times. They are billed as being waterproof and I can say I believe it!
I also wore Infinite (the blue one) the other day and N___. (who never notices things like makeup) actually said he liked the blue! It stayed on really well, it never flaked off or budged in any way. To remove it I used some oil based eye makeup remover and got it off fairly easy, but not as easy as most liquid liners.
I must say that these are very similar to the MAC Liquidlast liners, but a fraction of the price (MAC is $16.50). What I liked about these ones better (other than price) was that these didn’t dry in 1 second flat like the MAC ones do. That gave me time to correct any mistake I might have. The MAC ones dry SO freakin’ fast that I don’t even use them anymore because once they’re on, they’re on so you kinda have to be perfect with those.
Overall I would say that these are really excellent liners and definitely worth checking out if you like bright colors (or black).
You can find these wherever Milani Cosmetics are sold (they recently started selling them at my Target) and they are about $5.99.
Do you wear liquid liner, what are some of your favs?
