Wearing: Joe Fresh Nail Polish in Peacock
eyeliner is essential and i think that every girl that wears make up should have one. of course, everyone is different so we all have to go through the trouble of finding the right one. i bought the joe fresh fine tip liquid liner a few months ago and i actually really like it, even though it isn't really that great =P i heard from several people that this eyeliner is the exact dupe for mac's pen ultimate eyeliner! here's the youtube video. the joe fresh eyeliner retails for $6.00CAD while the mac one is $16.50USD.
the ingredients...hmm..i wonder if it matches the mac one exactly.... ^^
its claim: "shape and define your eyes with easy to handle liquid liner. dries fast for rich, deep, long lasting colour."
the packaging is quite bland and generic which i don't mind. it has a cap that provides a good grip on the pen so i don't have to worry about it drying out fast. it even says to store horizontally otherwise the eyeliner might not last.
the joe fresh collection is only available in loblaw and superstore chains across Canada.
i like the the flexible fine tip that makes application easy. from thin to thick lines, you can control this eyeliner without a problem. i like to apply it using small strokes and building up the colour, then winging it out. sometimes, the ink doesn't reach the tip so you might have to give it a good shake. i find that the tip may become worn out or frayed with time :/ but it's still in fairly good shape right now.
as for colour, i have it in black which is part of the classic collection (permanent) along with brown. i've also seen them in teal/turquoise and olive. when i say that this eyeliner doesn't deserve my love, it's because it isn't very long lasting and it smudges throughout the day. it goes on pigmented. but after a few blinks, the liner fades (maybe due to smudging) which doesn't bug me that much since it looks natural :)
overall, a 7.5/10 but i like this joe fresh eyeliner! it definitely defines the eyes and is easy to control. i prefer liquid over pencil eyeliner because of the finish. however, this liner doesn't really last and smudges easily. but for 6 bucks, you really can't complain! if i somehow get my hands on a dolly wink liquid eyeliner, i'll probably ditch this one >.<
so would you give this a try?
