Coloured Eye-Liners 101

You NEED coloured Eye Liners in your life. Period.

Agreed that a black liner is classic however you need variety in your life and there are times when you actually get sick of wearing a harsh black line. Happens to me all the time!

If you're confused as to what colours would suit you and so on, there are three basic colours that are foolproof and are a staple, from various brands in my vanity.

However seeing my obsession about Queen Cosmetics lately, I have three from them to show you today, namely Azure(blue), Brown and Violet.

Besides the fact that the white and gold packaging is uber classy, the pencils have a lovely kohl like consistency and are easy to apply and smooth to blend hence there is not tugging of the eye lid involved.

They can easily be applied close to the lid and then smoked out with a liner brush for an effortless look. Having said that, they do not smudge and smear like crazy *ahem MAC Kohl pencils* and have better longevity comparatively. 

I use Brown sometimes as an eye brow pencil and its works just as well. Violet is the creamiest of them all and has become a staple in my everyday routine regardless of what eyeshadow I am wearing. 

Azure however, is the most unique peacock blue that I've ever seen in the history of Liner pencils that I've come across. Co-incidentally, it has the best consistency of them all too and cannot be faulted. 

I give it The. Must-have. Status.

(excuse the shabby brows!)

Overall, the Liner Pencils cannot be faulted for £6.75 each. The icing on the cake is that they are suitable especially for those with sensitive eyes hence us contact-lens wearers are guaranteed not to be left streaming.
