I tried it once when I was in University and... FAIL. I ended up looking like Madame Medusa from the animated film The Rescuers- a look no self-respecting woman should ever strive for ;) And so, for the past couple of years I'd been avoiding it like the plague. Well, until now, of course. I finally mustered up the courage and bought Etude House's Oh m'Eye Line liquid eyeliner in December last year and it had been laying in my makeup drawer till yesterday morning, when I decided to take the plunge and try it out.
This waterproof liner comes in three shades: #1 Black, #2 Grey and #3 Brown. At only KRW 4000 it's really affordable and comes in a 5ml plastic pot with a fine tip brush. It promises a smudge-free, long-wearing experience that is easy to apply, dries quickly and provides a rich pigmented result.
I got the liquid liner in #1 Black and was surprised (almost shocked) at how easy it was to apply! All it took was five minutes, making sure to do small sections at a time and this was the result:
When it was time to remove the product, I also decided to test the waterproof claims and tried removing it by splashing some water onto my face and it still stuck. It loosened up a bit after rubbing, but only came off completely after I used some coconut oil on a cotton disc ( I use it as a makeup remover.) Another thing I noticed is that it peels off, rather than dissolving- a sure way to determine that it won't run if it had to come into contact with water. I'd be confident enough to go swimming with this stuff on!
