Glitter Eyeliner - Over 18's Only

Sorry for the cheesy title guys. But you know when you eagerly go ahead and splurge on that glitter liner which looks stunning from the outside, thinking it will be just perfect for that party and come home to see the result in a blob of glitter that only a kid would fancy wearing?

I have had that a couple of times too, hence restrict my self from such a purchase. However this liner is a glitter liner for real, which would actually appeal to adults. It's by a company called Make Up Store. First of all, isn't the packaging so pretty?

It's in the shade 'queen', which is a silver with gold reflects. It has some green and yellow glitter too, depending on where the light hits.

The brush is so fine and gives a precise line. It is of pretty good quality, one I have usually not seen accompanied with glitter liners. I even use the brush for my usual liner as I do not have such a fine brush as of yet. It's of the perfect length, so picks up just the right amount of product.

The consistency of the liner is just about perfect too. Not too watery, nor too thick. As I mentioned above, a swipe of this will give you an entire line of glitter liner, not just a few chunks of glitter.

I was really impressed with its staying power as well. It actually lasted me for more than half the day and did not budge. Once applied, it stays put unless you take it off. I did have some problem removing this though and ended up with glitter all over my face lol. An effective eye makeup remover would work well. (note to self: invest in one!)

I like wearing this on its own, with a neutral eye or plain 'concealer lids'. But my favorite way of wearing this is over a colored liner - it just transforms the entire look. I am wearing it over MAC's Blacktrack Fluidline above. It would look stunning over purple or indigo liner too :)

This retails for £13 which I believe is quite reasonable for 9 grams of this stunning product which should last you forever! You can also get this in Brown, Blue, Purple, Gold and many more colors. I was kindly sent this by the people at Make Up Store for consideration. This does not affect my review of course :)

That's a really interesting way of using a glitter liner, I never thought to put it on over black liner before.
