Apologies my lovelies, this post is about 2 weeks late. I’ll explain why…
After exclaiming my new found love for these el-cheapo gel liners and promising a full review, I wore one of the colour ones and experienced a fair amount of transfer to my upper lid. Enough to make me rethink whether I should be shouting about them from my virtual rooftop.
I umm’ed and ahh’ed about if for a few days, then promptly forgot they even existed until the weekend whilst playing with rearranging my stash.
I gave two of them another chance and they didn’t move an inch! Now, the odd thing is this… I wasn’t wearing any primer at the weekend, but I was when they smudged to my upper lid. However, it may be completely unrelated and I just had particularly oily lids that day or someting bizarro like that.
I’ve already talked about the black… let’s have a little look at the coloured ones I got…
L – R: Shimmer Sky Line, Shimmer Sexy Pink
L-R: Deep Purple, Indigo Blue
I’ve included the black (from my initial order) in this swatch
Now, I don’t know why they transferred. Once set on my skin I can run my finger over the top quite firmly and nothing smudges… not even a tiny bit.
Infact, when I tried to wipe them off with one of Leila’s wet wipes, they resisted quite heavily.
Look how hard I had to scrub to remove the pigmentation…
Yes, that is my skin gone all blotchy from the vigourous rubbing and no, they still hadn’t completely faded. A little bit of makeup remover did the trick. Infinity Liner indeed.
Swatched on the eye… Clockwise from top-left: Deep Purple, Shimmer Sky Line, Shimmer Sexy Pink, Indigo Blue.
These Infinity Liners are hugely pigmented, soft, creamy and easy to apply. They take about 30 secs – 1 minute to set and once they do they’re not budging on me despite my best efforts to get them to transfer again.
Infact, as I write this… a thought has occured. I wonder if *perhaps* there was a slight film of grease or something across the top layer and now that I’ve used them a couple of times and dispersed the grease they’re no longer transferring? Pure speculation, but I can’t think of any other reasons. Anddd that doesn’t explain the fact why the black one *does* transfer if I don’t powder it.
My favourite is the Shimmer Sky Line. It’s positively electric.
Ok, enough of the review already… where did I get them from?
I purchased these from eBay seller CeliaMakeup currently priced at £4.00 each with free delivery. Delivery is a *little* slow @ just over 2 weeks (my Deal Extreme parcels usually arrive in around 1 week) but they arrived really well-packaged which bodes well for my future orders of those 88 palettes
I’ve also experienced good customer service from them, I ordered a double-ended eyeliner brush at the same time as my initial order and one end was splayed… they were eager to replace it for me with no problems at all.
Will you be making a purchase? If so, what colours do you have your eye on?
