Today, I'll be reviewing a fairly new eyeliner in Skin Food, the Sweet Almond Liquid Eyeliner. This liquid liner is enriched with sweet almond oil which is said to be nourishing and moisturizing for the skin.:) I've been using this for several months now so I think I'd be able to give a fair review on this.;)
Price: RM 47.90
Where to get it: Any Skin Food outlet (Sunway Pyramid, 1 Utama, etc.)
The liner is packaged in a lightweight plastic bottle with a long slim top and a rounded base. It's tiny and portable so it's easy to carry around. And as you can see from the picture above, the attached brush is very thin with a sharp tip.
No complaints about the packaging. It's simple, cute and practical.:)
The liquid liner is smooth and very watery.
The liquid liner has a light almond scent but it's very mild and you won't smell it at all putting it on.:)
The Skin Food website says to apply from the inner corner of your eyes outwards but everybody has their own way of applying eyeliner. Choose the method that works best for you.:)
Precise and smooth application.
This is the liquid liner I started with, only pencils before this! The thin brush is wonderful for beginners! You can correct mistakes easily and just slowly and carefully build your eyeliner up to a desired thickness. The brush handle is nice and thick for a good grip. Seriously awesome.:)
Plus, the sharpness of the brush makes it easier to the little flick at the end. Hope you can see it in the pictures!
The liner itself is a great color. Gives a really dark glossy finish which makes your eyes look bigger and brighter. It does keep your eyes moisturized. It's very comfortable to wear and easy to remove.
The downfall of this product is that it's not waterproof. It cracks a bit after a few hours if you have oily skin like I do and don't wear an eyeshadow primer.:( And don't even think about wearing this in the rain! The eyeliner just breaks apart and falls down your face!
All in all, I find that this eyeliner isn't really worth RM 48. I got this from Korea for about RM 20 so for that price it is value for money. But RM 48? That's pretty crazy for an eyeliner that cracks and breaks apart.:S
Overall rating: 2/5
For lovely color, smoothness, moisturizing effect and awesome brush.:) Marks deducted because eyeliners need to be long lasting!
So that's my personal view on the Skin Food Sweet Almond Eyeliner. Of course, products work differently on different people because of our skins so I'm not saying you shouldn't give this liner a chance if you feel your skin type is very different from mine. It does have many pros!
Anyway, I hope this review has been useful. Do comment if you wish to share your experience on this eyeliner.:):)
