Whenever I get a new liquid eyeliner, my first thought is, “What on earth am I supposed to do with this?”. Liquid eyeliner and I aren’t the best of friends. When I try to use one, I am more likely to poke myself in the eye with it rather than create a feline flick a la Brigitte Bardot. *sighs*
But with Sleek Makeup Dip It Eyeliner, I shouldn’t have worried. This stuff is fool-proof. The applicator has a sturdy and slim felt tip that glides smoothly, without tugging, on the lids, and allows you to create both thin and thick lines easily. The long, slim handle gives you control for an even more precise application. And the small, travel-friendly, pot itself is just so cute!
Dip It Eyeliner in Black is a true, inky black with a matte finish. It’s perfect to create both dramatic cat eyes and intense smokey looks for an evening out. Opaque in just one coat, it dries quickly and doesn’t budge for most of the day.
It did start flaking a bit after 8 hours (I wasn’t wearing a primer, by the way), but we’re in the middle of a heat wave at the moment, which makes most makeup products melt a lot faster. Considering that Dip It Eyeliner isn’t waterproof, I’d say that’s pretty impressive. Just don’t wear it at the pool or the beach and you’ll be fine.
Sleek Makeup Dip It Eyeliner in Black is pigmented, easy to use, and dries quickly. Although longlasting, it isn’t waterproof and can flake when it is too hot.
